Post-doctoral Fellowship, Institute of Philosophy, Chinese Academy of Sciences. 

We are inviting applications for five postdoctoral fellowship positions. This fellowship is for 2-3 years, starting either in September 2020 or March 2021.  Salary for well-qualified postdoc applicants is between 300,000~400,000RMB (annual gross).  The successful applicant must have a Ph.D. in a discipline related to at least one of the AOS categories by the time of appointment. We look for applicants with a strong research background and at least one research project ready to launch. Outstanding fellows have the opportunity to become junior faculty members of CASIP upon completion of the postdoc program. 

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, and the Center for Science and Values. 

The University of Chinese Academy of Sciences is a major university in Chinese higher education.  It has four campuses in the Beijing area, three located within the city of Beijing and one in the suburb by the beautiful Yanqi Lake.
