Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Stockholm University is Sweden’s largest philosophy department. The department is home to a very active, friendly, and cooperative community of internationally well-connected researchers, and hosting a large variety of conferences, workshops, colloquia, seminars, and guest researchers every year.  Like most major philosophy departments in Sweden, the Stockholm department is divided into two subjects — Practical and Theoretical Philosophy — both of which feature many researchers prominent in their fields. Theoretical Philosophy encompasses philosophy of language, as well as logic, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and history of philosophy. 

In the field of formal logic the department has strong traditions in proof theory, type theory, and theory of generalized quantifiers. The main current areas of expertise and research in logic also include a wide variety of modal and temporal logics, and logics for multi-agent systems, ranging broadly from technical methods and results to conceptual approaches and applications to philosophy, mathematics, AI, game theory and computer science. 

The successful candidate will have a strong potential and good research record and expertise in these or other relevant areas of logic, and will demonstrate both substantial technical background and keen interest in general philosophical questions and applications using logic-based methods. Ability to teach a broad range of a subjects in logic on all levels is expected, and the ability to teach in Swedish at the time of application is required.

Main responsibilities
The holder shall conduct research and teaching in the theoretical philosophy with a particular focus on logic. Teaching can occur at different levels and within different areas of logic. The employee shall actively work to contribute to external funding of research at the department. Administrative tasks may also be included in the duties. Employment as a lecturer means entitlement to later apply for promotion to a professor
