The Oxford Philosophy of Physics Graduate Conference
6-7th February 2019, Exeter College, Oxford
Keynote Speaker: Eleanor Knox (KCL)
The submission deadline for papers is 9th December.
We welcome submissions in all areas of philosophy of physics and philosophy of science, particularly from those belonging to underrepresented groups.
From Jos Uffink:
The Jury would like to issue a call for nominations for the 2019 Hanneke Janssen Memorial Prize, which is awarded annually for the best work in History and/or Philosophy of Modern Physics, done by a student as a requirement for a Masters Thesis. The prize carries a 2000 euro award. Nominations for this Prize need to be submitted by a supervisor of the nominee before November 1, 2019. I would also like to issue a special encouragement for the nomination of candidates from underrepresented groups.
The Beyond Spacetime project of Nick Huggett (Illinois-Chicago) and Christian Wüthrich (Geneva) announces the award of a $600K grant from the John Templeton Foundation, to support their work on the project “Cosmology Beyond Spacetime”. Activities will include pre- and post-doctoral fellowships, speaker series, meetings, and publications. Follow the project on beyondspacetime.net, where some activities are already advertised; more information will follow soon.
The Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for Fellowships supporting visits in the Center for a term or an academic year during the year 2020-2021. For details, visit the Center Website, www.pitt.edu/~pittcntr.
The Center is pleased to announce that Nick Huggett will be the Senior Visiting Fellow for the academic year September 2020 – April 2021. We encourage applications for Postdoctoral and Visiting Fellowships from scholars whose research intersects with Professor Huggett’s.
In particular, one postdoc may be in the philosophy of cosmology, of quantum gravity, or of spacetime theories:
