We have exciting opportunities for Research Associates to make a leading contribution to the ERC research project KnowledgeLab: Knowledge-First Social Epistemology (2021-2025), working with Professor Mona Simion (PI) at the University of Glasgow’s COGITO Epistemology Research Centre.
The successful candidates will produce high-quality research in accordance with the project’s aims, which centrally involve a knowledge-first approach to central social epistemological issues, such as testimony, groups, disagreement, science communication, and the epistemology of the media.
KnowledgeLab is a major research project in social epistemology, financed by a 1.5 million Euro grant from the European Research Council, and hosted by the COGITO Epistemology Research Centre at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, UK. KnowledgeLab develops a new, knowledge-first research programme for social epistemology. Social epistemology investigates the epistemic effects of social interactions: e.g., how we gain knowledge from social sources (others’ testimony, the media), how we should respond to disagreement, how groups (scientific teams, organisations) can know. It is among the most thriving areas in contemporary philosophy. For further details about the project, see https://www.knowledgelab-research.com
There are 2 positions available, each with funding for 24 months.
For informal enquiries, please contact Professor Mona Simion, [email protected]
