Job description

The Institute of Philosophy (Research Training Group GRK 2073 “Integrating Ethics and Epistemology of Scientific Research”) at Leibniz University Hannover invites applications for a position as a

Research Assistant (Postdoc) in Ethics of Science and/or Philosophy of Science
(m/f/d, Salary Scale E13 TV-L, 100 %)

to start on 1 January 2021. The position will be offered for the full length of the project and is limited to 30 September 2024.

We are offering a full-time position as a Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in (research assistant) on salary scale TV-L E13. (This amounts to a monthly net salary roughly between 2250€ and 2550€, plus benefits such as health insurance.)

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 German national funding agency (DFG). Its research program aims at bridging 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.

Responsibilities and duties

The postdoc is expected to conduct their own research within research projects that contribute to the research program of GRK 2073, to participate in peer learning groups and other training activities, to contribute their services to the governing board of GRK 2073, and to be available as a counsel to PhD students.

Employment conditions

Applicants should be fluent in English and must hold a PhD in Philosophy or History and Philosophy of Science (or a similar programme). They should have completed their doctoral research in philosophy of science and/or ethics of science. They need to specify a research project that fits into research program as described on the GRK website.
