Job description

Postdoctoral Fellowships enable philosophers of science within five years of their doctorates to spend a two-term academic year working in the Center for Philosophy of Science on a project in philosophy of science that they nominate. Two Postdoctoral Fellowships are offered each year.

For one of the two post positions, in connection with the Senior Fellowship at the Center of LAS Distinguished Professor Nick Huggett (https://phil.uic.edu/profiles/huggett-nick/), we are particularly interested in philosophers working in the philosophy of cosmology, on quantum theories of gravity, or on the foundations of spacetime theories. There is the possibility of renewal for a second year, at the University of Illinois at Chicago, for candidates pursuing research on these topics.

The Center encourages applications from assistant professors in the early stages of their careers as well as from scholars with newly awarded doctorates. We particularly welcome submissions from members of underrepresented groups.
