Pittsburgh: two faculty positions in history and philosophy of science

The University of Pittsburgh’s HPS department advertises two faculty positions, one at the junior, tenure-track level and a senior tenured position. For both, they seek an AOS of either philosophy of physics or philosophy of biology. My guess is that they hope to find one each, which means that there may be non-trivial interference effects between the two searches. Anyway, that’s just my guess. Here are the ads:
