Job description

Leibniz University Hannover and Bielefeld University jointly invite applications for 5 Doctoral Candidate Positions (Salary Scale E13 TV-L, 65%) in Ethics of Science and/or Philosophy of Science, starting 1 October 2020, within the Graduiertenkolleg (research training group) GRK 2073 “Integrating Ethics and Epistemology of Scientific Research”. 

 The position is limited to 3 years. At least two of the positions are expected to be located at Leibniz University Hannover and at least two at Bielefeld University.

GRK 2073 “Integrating Ethics and Epistemology of Scientific Research” is a research training group that is established as a joint project by Leibniz University Hannover and Bielefeld University. It is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation). Its research program aims to bridge the gap between practice and theory in the philosophical investigation of scientific research in two ways: firstly, it examines new connections between practical philosophy of science (ethics of science, political philosophy of science) and theoretical philosophy of science (epistemology, metaphysics); secondly, it analyzes relevant links between the material culture of the sciences (objects, equipment, experiments, practices) and the cognitive dimension of the sciences (theories, hypotheses, discourses, models). The working language of GRK 2073 is English.

Applicants must hold a pertinent university degree (typically an M.A. degree in Philosophy or in History and Philosophy of Science) and must be eligible to enroll as doctoral students in Philosophy at Leibniz University Hannover or Bielefeld University. They must be fluent in English and demonstrate an interest in at least one of the following two areas: practical philosophy of science (i.e., ethics and/or political philosophy of science) or theoretical philosophy of science (epistemology and/or metaphysics of science).

Applicants need to specify a dissertation project that is in line with the aims of the research program of GRK 2073 as described on the GRK website (https://grk2073.org). 

Please carefully read our application guide (available from https://grk2073.org/apply/), which details the application procedure and provides for further information on how to apply (as well as on the research training group and the positions offered).

Successful candidates will conduct research on a dissertation project that contributes to the research program of GRK 2073 and will participate in training activities as specified by the qualification program. It is expected that they take up residence in the region of their respective campus.

Please send your application along with the documents and certificates specified in our application guide by 31 May 2020 via e-mail to admissions@philos.uni-hannover.de
