Traditional conferences and subject-specific workshops offer little room for having in-depth discussions about the foundations of physics in an open, creative and speculative way. Since the first meeting in 2013, this workshop has offered a platform for engaging in such discussions.
The MCMP is organising the fifth edition of the Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, and invites applications until March 5, 2018.
This year the focus will be on metaphysics. More specifically, we will have the following lecture streams:
Call for Applications (deadline 31 January 2018)
The Research Unit “Epistemology of the LHC” invites applications for the Summer School “Particle Physics at the Crossroads: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the Past, Present and Future of Particle Physics” taking place 23-30 July 2018 in Wuppertal (Germany).
The School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry at the University of Queensland invites applications for a PhD position in philosophy of physics.
The position is funded by the Australian Research Council and is associated with the project “A philosophical exploration of simulating and controlling the quantum world”. While applicants must have a BA with a major in philosophy, an additional BSc with a major in physics will be looked upon favourably. Applications are welcome from anybody with an Honours (or equivalent – e.g. Masters) in either of philosophy or physics (and preferably the philosophy of science and/or physics).
