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.)
We invite applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Philosophy of Physics. The Fellowship will provide a new scholar in foundations of physics with a unique opportunity to pursue research in collaboration with physicists and philosophers.
Maybe we will see the first female winner of the prize this year, who knows? Anyway, here is the call for nominations:
The Hanneke Janssen Memorial Prize is awarded on a yearly basis by the President of Radboud University Nijmegen for the best thesis/paper(s)/essay(s) in the History and Philosophy of Physics, submitted elsewhere towards a Master’s (or comparable) degree. Candidates should be nominated by their academic advisor(s) by 1 November 2016.

The first of two calls for PosDocs at the Center for Philosophy of Time in Milan is out!
We are looking for a researcher who has a research specialism in temporal issues with respect to at least one of the following areas: metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language and philosophy of science. We will be looking for an analogous profile in the second call. Ideally we aim at making one hire with an area of research specialism in the metaphysics of time, and one hire with an area of research specialism in temporal aspects within philosophy of mind. PhD is strongly preferred.
The call is out till 10 May 2016. Please send all documents to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Interviews (via Skype) for those shortlisted will be 16 May, starting from 14:00. The position will start on 1 June (and not 1 May, as originally planned). Duration of the grant is 14 months. Neat salary slightly over 1.850 € per month. The second call will be out in the next weeks, and the position will start in September or October.
If you are interested in any of the two positions, please apply to both (even if you cannot start on 1 June), so that we can better plan the hiring. Specify at the beginning of your research project whether you can start on 1 June and what would be your preferred starting date(s).
