Job description

We are pleased to announce the 2nd major recruitment effort by CASIP after a successful 1st round in 2020.  Again, we are inviting applications for five postdoctoral fellowship positions. This fellowship is for 2-3 years, starting either in September 2021 or March 2022.  Salary for well-qualified postdoc applicants is between 350,000 - 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 eventually develop into a full-fledged independent 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.

CASIP is currently located together with many of the CAS institutions in the northwest areas of central Beijing, the Zhongguancun area (it is close to where such major universities as the Beijing University and Tsinghua University are located).  UCAS 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.
