The Philosophy of Physics Society invites applications for the position of Editor-in-Chief of the society’s new journal, Philosophy of Physics.
The society is in the advanced stages of the creation of an Open Access journal Philosophy of Physics and seeks a founding Editor-in-Chief who will work with the society to establish the journal as the leading venue worldwide for scholarship in the philosophy of physics, broadly construed.
The Working Group “Philosophy of Physics” (AGPhil) of the German Physical Society (DPG) invites submissions for its annual workshop at the virtual DPG conference, organized by Jena. Contributions on any topic in the philosophy of physics are welcome. The workshop takes place 30 August – 3 September 2021 as an online event (https://smuk21.dpg-tagungen.de/). As part of this event, the AGPhil organizes a small workshop on the “Metaphysics of Physics”. Contributions in this area are especially welcome.

JUNE 24 – 25, 2021
Join us for the twentieth annual Philosophy of Logic, Math and Physics (LMP) graduate student conference in philosophy hosted by Western University in London, Ontario, Canada over Zoom. The LMP Graduate Student Conference will bring together philosophers of logic, mathematics, and physics for two days of presentations and discussions with some of the leaders in these fields. We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker this year is James Owen Weatherall from the University of California, Irvine.
Links for registration and the event program can be found at our website: logicmathphysics.uwo.ca.
We are delighted to announce a conference on the early philosophical reception of relativity theory, to be held online, and organized by Chiara Russo Krauss (University of Naples Federico II) and Luigi Laino (University of Naples Federico II).

This online workshop focuses on various philosophical aspects of Lambda, i.e. dark energy/ the cosmological constant/ vacuum energy.
We are delighted to announce that we are in the advanced stages of the foundation of a Philosophy of Physics Society which is going to be created to support the international community of researchers and students in the field of philosophy of physics and administer a journal entitled Philosophy of Physics which would be published on an open access basis (without publication charges).
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral associate position in the philosophy of physics at the University of Pittsburgh, affiliated to the department of History and Philosophy of Science and the Department of Philosophy. The position will be supervised by David Wallace, and applicants should intend to pursue a course of research in an area of philosophy of physics related to Professor Wallace’s research activities (which include inter alia the interpretation of quantum mechanics, the role of symmetry in physics, quantum field theory, statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, and quantum gravity). The postdoctoral associate may be asked to carry out some minor administrative work to assist Professor Wallace’s research, amounting to at most 10% of their time averaged over the period of appointment; the remainder of their time is available for their own research project.
