The FNRS MIS project Digital History and Philosophy of Biology (DHPB), led by Prof. Charles Pence at the Centre de philosophie des sciences et sociétés (CEFISES) and Institut supérieur de philosophie (ISP) at the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain) is advertising two two-year post-doctoral fellowships in history and/or philosophy of biology.

Starting date: May 1, 2019
Ending date: April 31, 2021 (with the possibility of an extension to a third year)
More information: See the "Web address for more information" below; also soon to appear on Euraxess

The DHPB project aims to expand the use of the tools of digital humanities – particularly textual analysis – to study the history and philosophy of the life sciences. We have developed an application (see doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0146004) and a corpus of journal article data (see doi:10.1016/j.shpsc.2016.04.003) enabling us to study at a broad scale the journal literature in evolutionary biology and related fields, offering a novel perspective on the growth and development of biological science (dating back to as early as 1860).

We will gladly review postdoctoral fellowship applications from candidates trained in either philosophy or history of science, as well as digital humanities or the sciences (if such candidates have expertise in philosophical or historical work).
