Additional information from Richard Zach:

My department is advertising for a senior position in logic or philosophy of science. We are looking for a high-profile researcher at or near the Full Professor level who can build up the department’s profile, attract and train graduate students in philosophy, and has experience obtaining outside funding. The job is pretty cushy, with a 1-1 teaching load, competitive pay, and is a tenured permanent position.

Note that since this is a search under the CRC program there is no requirement to give preference to Canadians. The department’s website is at
