The Institute of Philosophy, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China

We invite applications for three Assistant/Associate/Full Research Professor positions. Salary will be internationally competitive for well qualified candidates (normal range from 400,000+RMB to 600,000+RMB annual gross, depending on qualifications). The initial appointment is for three years. Responsibilities include graduate teaching (light), thesis supervision, research workshops and conference organization. We are especially interested in applicants who engage in interdisciplinary research between philosophy and science. The successful applicant must have a PhD in a discipline related to at least one of the AOS categories by the time of appointment, a solid research record appropriate for his or her career, and excellent communication skills.  Senior applicants will be considered for center directors (of the five centers in CASIP).

The Institute of Philosophy in Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIP) was established to meet the urgent need in China to develop foundational, philosophical, and ethical research on science and technology.  In the midst of rapid advances in science and technology, China needs to promote and invest in humanities that are relevant and fully international.  As a full capacity international institution of research and postgraduate education in philosophy, CASIP emphasizes interdisciplinary research between philosophy and science. CASIP aims to foster collaborative research projects between philosophy and science and promote innovative projects of foundational research in basic sciences and on philosophical, social, and ethical issues in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary scientific research/areas.  CASIP will be initially housed in the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS). CASIP will develop into a full-fledged institute of philosophy in Chinese Academy of Sciences that covers all aspects of research and postgraduate education in the intersection between philosophy and science. 

CASIP comprises five centers: the Center for Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics, the Center for Philosophy of Physical Sciences, the Center for Philosophy of Biological Sciences, the Center for Philosophy of Intelligence and Cognitive Science, the Center for Science and Values.  Each center is headed by a leading expert in the area who directs teams of international researchers. The teams are in charge of research projects and train postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate students. 

The University of Chinese Academy of Sciences is a major university in Chinese higher education. It has four campuses in Beijing area, three located within the city of Beijing and one in the suburb by the beautiful Yanqi Lake. For more information, see http://english.ucas.ac.cn.
