Application deadline: June 1st, 2021, 23h55 CET
The ENCODE project: Explicating Norms for Collective Deliberation (NWO VIDI project)
The ENCODE project seeks to answer these questions in exact terms. In particular, we want to study existing formal models of deliberation and develop new ones, in order to get a better understanding of the complex interactions that take place when people exchange their arguments and revise their position. The emphasis will be on philosophical logic, but we will also consider agent-based models of deliberation and decision-theoretic accounts.
This project is funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO) and run by Dr. Frederik Van de Putte within the Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE), Erasmus School of Philosophy (ESPhil). The PhD candidate will be jointly supervised by Dr. Frederik Van De Putte and Prof. Dr. Jack Vromen.
The PhD project
The salary is in accordance with the doctoral candidate scale of the CAO NU. For a full- time appointment, the salary is € 2.395,- gross per month during the first year, which will increase annually up to € 3.061,- gross per month in the fourth year. In addition, the attractive employment package includes an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%, generous leave provisions for a healthy work-life balance, a good pension scheme, a budget for conference and research travel, excellent options for collective insurance, and a provision for the use of the Internet at home. The employee may also use a number of campus facilities, such as sports facilities and the library. For international spouses we have set up a dual career programme.
