Job description

The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is inviting applications for Postdoctoral Associates. Up to two individuals will be hired, the total number depending on budgetary considerations. Applicants in all areas of research supported by the Institute will be considered, with priority given to the following areas:

  • The intersection of philosophy, psychology & neuroscience. This scholar will work with the EMRGLab (emrglab.org). The specific AOS/research area is open, but the ideal candidate will have experience in both theoretical and empirical work.
  • Philosophy of physics, including foundations of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and history and philosophy of space-time theories, as well as connections between physical theory and general questions in methodology, epistemology, and metaphysics.

The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is an independent research institute at one of Canada’s premier research universities. It has close ties to one of Canada’s leading departments of philosophy, and draws faculty members from a variety of fields. Ongoing research focuses on a variety of philosophical problems arising in contemporary physics, biology, cognitive neuroscience, and medical science.

The standard appointment is a two-year term with the possibility of renewal for a third year, assuming agreement by both parties, and sufficient funding. 

The Associate will have an office within the Rotman Institute. She or he will be required to involve themselves fully in the research life of the Institute by conducting research leading to peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations, and by participating in conferences, research groups, reading groups, and outreach activities.

Candidates must have had a PhD in philosophy conferred within five years of the start of the appointment. All PhD requirements must be completed by the starting date, typically July 1, 2022. The stipend is $45,000 CAD.
