Job description

The Philosopher in Residence Fellowship is aimed at internationally leading and emerging representatives of the field of philosophy wishing to carry out a joint project with a  professor (or several professors, if cooperation in a group is suitable) from Technical University of Munich, from the fields of natural sciences, engineering, life sciences including medicine and health sciences, economics or social sciences. Applicants are completely free in their choice of topics.

Innovative developments in modern scientific and technical disciplines are often accompanied by implications that require philosophical consideration and embedding. This is what the Philosopher in Residence Program aims to do, and thus to promote both discourse within the sciences and public debate about them.

The Fellowship is scheduled for twelve months – four of those will be spent at TUM. We promote philosophical engagement with the latest research and innovative approaches in the above areas.

The TUM-IAS Philosopher in Residence is endowed with €30,000 for research-related costs, travel expenses and housing. In addition, the TUM-IAS Philosopher in Residence receives an award of €70,000. The publication of the results and the organization of a workshop at TUM-IAS are expected.

The program is designed for internationally renowned scholars with doctoral degrees and advanced experience in philosophy whose interests lie across disciplines, i. e. natural sciences, engineering, life sciences including medicine and health sciences, economics or social sciences.
