Applicants should have a Ph.D. in philosophy or a related field with a background in the biological and/or cognitive sciences, demonstrated interest in evolution and development, and evidence or promise of scholarly achievement. The successful candidate will: (a) carry out an original philosophical research program under the supervision of Alan Love at the University of Minnesota focusing on aspects of the creative role of stress in evolution and development, and (b) work in close collaboration with the project team at Yale University on empirical, theoretical, and conceptual questions related to the creative role of stress in evolution and development.
The Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota invites applications for a fulltime postdoctoral position in conjunction with the project “The creative role of stress in evolution and development” sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation. This project brings together biologists, psychologists, and philosophers to address the empirical, theoretical, and conceptual questions related to the existence of a creative role for stress in evolution alongside its relationship to other roles of environmentally induced change in both evolution and development, while seeking to formulate corresponding general principles that foster new interdisciplinary inquiry.
Position duration: two years, beginning on or after 05/15/2020 (start date negotiable).
Application deadline: 11/15/2019.
Candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups in philosophy are especially encouraged to apply; the project is committed to building a research team of diverse identities and backgrounds.
