Postdoctoral Research Position (1fte, 2 years) on Formal Models of Group Deliberation, Erasmus School of Philosophy
Application deadline: September 30th, 2021, 23h55 CET
We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher who has experience in analytic philosophy and a background in formal modelling and/or agent-based simulations, to study norms of collective deliberation and group decision-making. This is a full-time, 2-year position at the world-known Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics. Read on to learn more about the project and this call!
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).
