|Organization's reference number||105491|
|Location||South Hinksey, England, United Kingdom|
|Start date||1 October 2013|
Applications are invited for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to work on the Project New Insights and Directions for Religious Epistemology hosted by the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Oxford. The post is fixed-term for the period 1 October 2012 to 30 September 2015. The salary is at grade 7 on the University scale (£29,249 - £31,020 per annum).
The Project, valued at £1.3million and directed by Professor John Hawthorne, has been made possible by the generous support of the John Templeton Foundation. It aims to bring recent developments in epistemology to bear on topics in the philosophy of religion in a way that will open up new channels of research in religious epistemology. The project is centred around, but not limited to, interesting and novel applications developing out of six main topics: (i) contextualism and pragmatic encroachment; (ii) safety and knowledge; (iii) epistemic defeat; (iv) testimony; (v) formal epistemology; and (vi) etiology of belief.
You must demonstrate expertise in epistemology and/or philosophy of religion, with evidence of the ability to undertake significant research in philosophy which will contribute to the aims of the project. It is expected that the successful candidates will author several publications as a direct consequence of their involvement with the project. You must hold a Bachelor/Master’s degree and be close to the completion of a PhD.
You will work under the guidance of the Director of the Project, and will also be expected to work in collaboration with other members of the Project’s team and with external collaborators.
