We are particularly interested in candidates that have a strong affinity with science and technology studies, the social organization of science, and/or the science-policy interface. Ideally the research of the candidate can complement and strengthen the existing research profile of the Department of Theoretical Philosophy, and contribute to the lively intellectual life of the faculty as a whole. The candidate will be expected to teach in the philosophy program on both BA and MA level, including the MA program on Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Additionally the candidate may be asked to provide philosophy of science courses to programs outside the Faculty of Philosophy, in the natural, life, and social sciences.
