The Forum Scientiarum (University of Tuebingen, http://www.forum-scientiarum.uni-tuebingen.de/) kindly invites 20 graduate students and young researchers in the field of philosophy, physics and mathematics, to apply for the 5th Summer School on the History and Philosophy of Science:
Tuebingen, July 31st–August 4th, 2017
Understanding Relativity Theory: Special and General
Five lectures by Harvey Brown (University of Oxford)
and a keynote lecture by Dennis Lehmkuhl (Caltech)
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 Logic and Theory of Science MA is a two-year master’s program in English at Eotvos Lorand University Budapest. The program is open to students from all over the world with a BA or BSc degree in philosophy, mathematics, physics, computer science, linguistics, social science, and all related fields.
From September 2017 the University of Bristol will introduce a new MA in Philosophy of Physics. This will be a one year taught masters including courses in philosophy of physics, theoretical physics, and philosophy of science.
The MA in Philosophy of Physics is intended both for students who wish to specialise in philosophy of physics at a higher level, and for individuals with a background in physics or mathematics who wish to make a transition to philosophy and foundations of physics.
