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.)
Call for Applications:
in the project ‘To and Fro: Scientific Metaphysics at Physics’s Frontiers’
University of Geneva
The Department of Philosophy in Geneva solicits applications for a three-year research position (‘collaborateur scientifique’), starting 1 January 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation grant ‘To and Fro: Scientific Metaphysics at Physics’s Frontiers’.
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.
The Department of Philosophy at Western University (The University of Western Ontario) invites applications or nominations for the Rotman Canada Research Chair (Tier I) in Philosophy of Science. This position will build on Western’s record of research excellence in this field. We are seeking an innovative leader and exceptional scholar in any area of philosophy of science, broadly construed. This is an exciting opportunity for experienced individuals who are recognized internationally as leaders in their field and who are currently at the rank of Professor or Associate Professor (or equivalent). Salary is negotiable and commensurate with qualifications and experience. This position will be full time, and tenured at the rank of Professor or Associate Professor, in the Department of Philosophy, or as a joint appointment with Philosophy and another department, as appropriate. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain a vigorous research program, and to contribute to teaching and supervising undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. The position will commence on July 1, 2017 or as negotiated.
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).
