Job description

The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship. The position will be supervised by Chris Smeenk, and applicants should intend to pursue research in a field that aligns with his current research activities. This includes, but is not limited to: philosophy of physics, history and philosophy of space-time theories, as well as connections between physical theory and general questions in methodology, epistemology, and metaphysics.

The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is an independent research institute at one of Canada’s premier research universities. It has close ties to one of Canada’s leading departments of philosophy, and draws faculty members from a variety of fields. Ongoing research focuses on a variety of philosophical problems arising in contemporary physics, biology, cognitive neuroscience, medical science, and health policy.


The standard appointment is a two-year term with the possibility of renewal for a third year, assuming agreement by both parties, and sufficient funding.

The Associate will have an office within the Rotman Institute. She or he will be required to involve themselves fully in the research life of the Institute by conducting research leading to peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations, and by participating in conferences, research groups, reading groups, and outreach activities.

Candidates must have had a PhD in philosophy or a related field conferred within five years of the start of the appointment. All PhD requirements must be completed by the starting date. The start date will be negotiated, but will likely be in the summer of 2023. The stipend is $45,000 CAD.

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2022 and will continue on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
