Job description

This is a 26-month position (from August 2020 to October 2022). It is associated with, and made available through, Israel Science Foundation grant no. 2035/19 ("The Idealist Program of Metaphysical Explanation"; Principal Investigator: David Mark Kovacs). A short description of the project can be found here:


Applicants are being sought whose area of specialization overlaps with the topic of explanation, broadly understood (including but not limited to scientific explanation in the philosophy of science, grounding and explanation in metaphysics, and related issues in epistemology). Candidates with a proven record of excellence are encouraged to apply even if their work is only indirectly related to the topic of explanation. Competence in both metaphysics and the philosophy of science may be an advantage.

The post carries an annual tax-free stipend of 86,100 New Israeli Shekels (cca. $25.000). Additional funding is available for travel to conferences.
