|Organization's reference number||IKOS-2021-00034|
|Location||Linköping, Östergötland, Sweden|
|Start date||By agreement, but preferably between September 1st, 2021, and January 1st, 2022.|
Postdoc in philosophy of science (broadly construed)
The successful candidate will contribute to the newly founded research group for Philosophy and Applied Ethics, especially to the group’s core research in philosophy of science. We note that philosophy science here is broadly understood encompassing all areas of specialization ranging from abstract theoretical, normative, and historical issues to applied subjects such as, among others, the philosophy and ethics of science, technology and engineering. Apart from carrying out her/his own research, the successful candidate is expected to support members of the research group in the acquisition of external funding and in the development of local, national and international collaborations. The successful candidate is expected to carry out the vast majority of her/his research in Linköping. This includes regular participation in the research group’s activities and programs (seminars, workshops, conferences, etc.). Additional duties may include teaching, course design, and other curricular activities. Such tasks, however, will not exceed 20% of the position’s responsibilities. The successful candidate can expect to fully profit from the division’s national and internal collaboration network that includes, among others, a liaison with the Program for Interdisciplinary Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.
The position requires a doctorate or an equivalent degree in a research area relevant to the position, i.e., research on abstract theoretical, normative, and historical issues, or applied subjects such as, among others, the philosophy and ethics of science, technology and engineering. Further requirements are: demonstrated scholarly skills, shown through the applicant’s peer-reviewed publications in journals and invited edited collections as well as successful grant applications; fluency in spoken and written English; strong interpersonal skills as well as the ability to plan, organize and disseminate research. Apart from research proficiency and potential, international experience and a research agenda that connects well with research currently carried out within the division (see here: https://liu.se/en/research/the-research-environment-philosophy-and-applied-ethics ) is a plus
Applications and documents received after the date above will not be considered.
The application portfolio must include a) a complete CV; b) a research plan of at most 3 pages detailing the research the applicant plans to conduct during her/his time as a Postdoc; c) a writing sample (preferably published) that best represents the applicant’s qualities; d) contact information for two academics familiar with the applicant’s work for further contact/reference. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an online interview.
Linköping University will continue to develop as an attractive and creative place of work, characterized by equal terms and actively works for equality and diversity.
