A Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) is vacant at the Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature (CSMN) at the University of Oslo (UiO).
The research activities at CSMN are organized in three branches: Linguistic Agency, Moral Agency and Rational Agency. For more information about CSMN, please see http://www.hf.uio.no/csmn/english/. CSMN is looking for a PhD fellow to work within the research profile of the Moral Agency branch. For more information about Moral Agency see http://www.hf.uio.no/csmn/english/research/subjects/moral-agency/
The successful candidate must participate in the Faculty of Humanities' researcher education program (cf. regulations and supplementary provisions for the faculty’s researcher education) and must also engage in the designated research activities on a 100 percent basis.
The person who is appointed will be enrolled in the Faculty’s organised researcher training. The academic study will terminate in a doctoral thesis which will be defended at the Faculty, leading to a PhD-degree.
The candidates will be expected to have their residence and work place in Oslo, to participate in the various workshops and conferences organized by CSMN, and to be active members of the CSMN team in Oslo on regular basis.
There is an agreement between the University of St. Andrews and the University of Oslo for a “joint PhD degree” (double BADGED), and successful candidates can apply for this.
The post is available for a period of three years starting in the beginning of 2013. (Currently, PhD-fellows who successfully submit their thesis within the three years period, are granted an additional fellowship year with some teaching duties).
