Alex Blum is starting his own research group at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG) and is looking to hire a philosophy of physics (or physics) postdoc and a history of physics postdoc. The duration of these fixed-term positions will be two years, with the possibility to be extended for another two years. For more information, please visit http://mpiwg.de/en/news/jobs#16123.

We invite interested scholars for short visits to the Spacetime After Quantum Gravity research group, located in the philosophy departments at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Geneva. To facilitate visits we can offer financial assistance for travel and lodging, office facilities, and of course excellent intellectual company. Visits can be from a few days to a few weeks (or possibly longer). Fellowship do not normally cover all expenses.
The MCMP has opened four positions for which philosophers of physics will also be considered:
Two Postdoctoral Fellowships at the MCMP (LMU Munich)
The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) seeks applications for two 2-year postdoctoral fellowships starting on October 1, 2017. (A later starting date is possible.) We are especially interested in candidates who work in one or more of the following fields: general philosophy of science, social epistemology, philosophy and psychology of reasoning and argumentation, Bayesian epistemology, Bayesian philosophy of science, philosophy of physics, and decision theory. Some teaching (in English) is possible, but not required.
The Cross Disciplinary Program QuEng: An Ecosystem for Quantum Technologies at the Université Grenoble Alpes invites applications for a PhD position in philosophy of quantum physics.
Starting date: September 2017
We are looking for candidates with excellent academic achievements, willing to immerse themselves in interdisciplinary research (philosophy and physics).
Further information on the project and on the application process (deadline April 10) available at:
The British Society for the Philosophy of Science is offering a scholarship for doctoral work in the philosophy of science at a UK university, subject to a candidate of sufficient merit presenting themselves.

The Analogue Simulation in Modern Physics project is a 21-month AHRC funded project with Principal Investigator Dr. Karim Thébault (Bristol) and Co-Investigator Prof. Stephan Hartmann (LMU Munich/MCMP). This project will involve investigation of the philosophical foundations of quantum simulation and analogue gravity, with a particular focus upon developing the idea of ‘analogue simulation’ as a novel form of scientific inference encompassing the two fields.
The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) seeks applications for two 1-year postdoctoral fellowships starting sometime between April 1, 2017 and October 1, 2017. (A later starting date is not possible.)
