Position overview

The School of Philosophy at the ANU has been awarded a major grant by the Australian Research Council, on the topic of Language of Consciousness. We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Research Fellow, whose work would advance the core aims of the project.

The School of Philosophy, Research School of Social Sciences, is a world-leading department that combines several of the world's most cited living philosophers with dynamic mid-career researchers, and award-winning early career researchers. Our principal strengths are in philosophy of science (especially philosophy of biology, probability, and decision theory), moral and political philosophy, and philosophy of mind, with a growing concentration in Asian Philosophy. We have a proud reputation of repeatedly winning significant support for both individual- and team-projects from the Australian Research Council, and every year welcome scores of international visitors to Canberra, hosting multiple annual workshops in all our major areas of research strength, as well as a vibrant series of three weekly research seminars. We have a continuing flow of postdoctoral researchers, all of whom go on to continuing positions at leading departments worldwide. We have two major research Centres—the Centre for Consciousness, and the Centre for Moral, Social and Political Theory—and plan to launch a Centre for Philosophy of Science in 2017. These centres coordinate our work in our areas of research strength, hosting multiple workshops and more postdocs.  

The ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS) is the largest single College of seven Colleges at ANU. The College, which is structured into two main research schools, offers degrees in more than 20 discipline areas and excels in research across the creative arts, humanities and social sciences. The College has a substantial international research presence and is a major source of national policy advice. Our academic staff are internationally recognised for their research, and 46 are members of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, the Academy of the Social Sciences of Australia, or both We also host 13 Australian Research Council Future Fellows and two ARC Laureates. A hub of vibrant activity, we host more than 100 lectures, concerts and exhibitions each year, most of which are open to the public. Our students, staff and graduates come from more than 60 nations, bringing a diversity of perspective to campus life.
