Job description

The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University invites applications from a broad range of researchers and practitioners who will work over the course of the year on pressing issues in ethics. Faculty in arts and sciences and professional schools, postdoctoral scholars, practitioners, and researchers from industry, government, and NGOs are eligible to apply.

For the 2022-23 academic year, the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics will continue its focus on the theme of “A New Social Compact?” Variations in national responses to the pandemic; disparate experiments with technology, economic, and health policies; and conflicts over foundational political institutions have thrown into stark relief different conceptions of the social compact (a phrase we use loosely to refer to shared understandings of what members of societies believe they owe to each other) around the world. Myriad challenges - including challenges relating to education, climate and the natural environment, migration, new technologies, public health, elections, racial justice, and economic well-being - call us to revisit and evaluate existing conceptions of the social compact at both national and global levels. We ask, is it time for a new social compact?

We invite applications connected to any dimension of this broad field of inquiry. We see the nature of the questions raised and the challenges to be addressed as so multifaceted as to make this theme not very restrictive; however, in our usual fashion, we will also consider applications that fall outside the parameters of this thematic description. All eligible applicants are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to early career scholars and practitioners.

Fellows-in-Residence will be expected to devote the majority of their time to their individual projects and to participate in regular work-in-progress seminars. In addition, Fellows are strongly encouraged to participate in the Center's programming, which includes public lectures, themed seminars and reading groups, conferences, workshops, and lunch discussions.

This Fellowship is intended to be residential. With the exception of travel to conferences and meetings, Fellows are expected to be in residence in the Boston area at least four working days per week during the term. The coronavirus pandemic resulted in a waiver of this requirement for the 2020-21 academic year. 2021-22 will be a transitional year, and our hope is to resume in- person, fully residential programming for the 2022-23 academic year.

In addition, the Center offers the possibility of joint fellowship opportunities with the following centers; potential affiliations are arranged on a case-by-case basis:

Applicants will be invited to indicate on the application form whether they wish to be considered for a joint fellowship position with one of these Centers. If selected, the joint fellowship will offer access to development opportunities and programming at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics and the partnering center.

ELIGIBILITY

Applicants must have a PhD, professional degree, or a minimum of 5 years of equivalent professional experience. Applicants from any discipline or professional field will be considered. Those who have previously held a yearlong residential Fellowship at the Center are not eligible; this limitation does not apply to former Undergraduate Fellows or former Graduate Fellows. The Fellows-in-Residence Program runs the course of the academic year, typically from the beginning of September through the end of May, and is open to all applicants who meet the above criteria, regardless of citizenship.

STIPEND

Faculty:

We offer a stipend of one-half of your base academic year salary, up to $75,000, and a research allowance of up to $3,000 for approved expenses directly related to your work, such as travel, books, and research assistance.

Post-Doc:

The stipend for post-doctoral fellows will be $60,000 for 2022-23. We also provide a research allowance of up to $3,000 for approved expenses directly related to your work, such as travel, books, and research assistance.

Practitioner:

Practitioner stipends are determined on a case-by-case basis, commensurate with experience, up to a maximum of $75,000, and a research allowance of up to $3,000 for approved expenses directly related to your work, such as travel, books, and research assistance.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

To apply, complete an online application form which includes submission of the following in .pdf, .doc, or .docx form:

  • Cover letter stating your background and interest in the Fellows-in-Residence Program at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics
  • CV

Term: Full time, continuing contingent appointment, with an expected end date in 2 years from the start

  • Join a multidisciplinary project advancing the study and design of democratically legitimate data and AI systems.
  • Connect with an international network of world-class researchers working on AI and society.
  • Contribute to ground-breaking and impactful research addressing one of the grand challenges of the twenty-first century.

Position overview

The ANU is seeking a world-class researcher to join a team of philosophers, computer scientists, lawyers and social scientists, on the Humanising Machine Intelligence (HMI) Grand Challenge project. Our goal is to contribute to the design and adoption of sociotechnical systems necessary for democratically legitimate data and AI—that is data and AI systems that are responsive to the values and decision-making procedures of democratic societies. 

Knitting together insights from computer science, law, philosophy, political science, and sociology, HMI is helping to shape government regulation of AI systems; to enable industry practitioners to develop AI systems that comply with, and exceed, those regulatory standards; and to build an international research community that supports those two goals.

We seek to appoint a 24 month postdoctoral fellow who can advance these research objectives, with a particular view to the research programmes described in the Position Description found on the website linked above (though other research agendas on complementary themes will be considered). 

Our primary criterion is demonstrated research excellence in a discipline area relevant to the project, and the clear potential to make internationally-recognised progress on these and related themes. We are keen to see strong applications from philosophers with training in moral and political philosophy, or philosophy of science, and an interest in pursuing ground-breaking research related to data and AI. 

An interdisciplinary background is not required, but successful applicants will be ready and equipped to engage with scholars from other disciplines. We are keen to appoint someone who can collaborate with lawyers on the HMI team, though this is not a strict requirement.

Successful applicants will publish internationally influential research in leading peer-reviewed venues (as suited to their discipline). We expect them to go on from the ANU to leading positions in academia and industry. A crucial component of their role will be to help maintain and build the HMI community at ANU and globally, through active participation in the collective research life of the project, and service roles such as convening a seminar series and international workshops.

The position is open with respect to discipline and subfield. A prior track record of work on AI and society (and related issues as appropriate to their training) is desirable but not required. The successful applicant will be expected to begin the role in a position to work on these themes, and to focus their work on topics that advance the HMI research agenda.

This position will be attached to the HMI project, and will be supervised by one of the project executive team as appropriate to their discipline (Lazar, Davis, Xie, Kurniawati, Erskine) on behalf of the project executive as a whole, and based in the school. If a philosopher is appointed, they will be supervised by Lazar, and based in the School of Philosophy. 

ANU is regarded as one of the world's leading research universities. It is ranked 1st in Australia and the whole of Oceania, and 27th in the world (2021 QS World University Rankings). Our location in the nation’s capital and close connections to government and industry means we are in a unique position to bridge government, industry and academia to inform and influence Australian public policy. The University is engaged in social discourse and public policy development while being research intensive.

Our research is second to none in quality and impact. We continue to attract the most exciting academic talent globally and support their success. We provide the platforms and investment to enable the co-creation of new approaches to interdisciplinary problem-solving and support our academics to realise the possibilities of their discoveries in society and business. Above all, we champion the value of pure research as the building blocks of all new knowledge: “first, to know the nature of things.”

As a member of the HMI project you would join a truly interdisciplinary team of scholars across the humanities, computer science and law who are pushing the bounds of foundational research in creating democratically legitimate sociotechnical AI systems.

Job description

The Philosophy Department at Tufts seeks a philosopher whose scholarship—which could be primarily in (meta)ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of mind, the history of philosophy, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of science, or any other field of philosophical research—bears significantly on philosophical questions, problems, and puzzles having to do with the development and use of new technologies. The ideal candidate will enhance and develop the department’s technology-related philosophy curriculum, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, will increase the department’s technology-related presence at Tufts, and will serve as the department’s point person for a new Philosophy MA program in Human-Robot Interaction, which will be offered in collaboration with the School of Engineering, and/or other collaborations with departments and programs at Tufts—particularly at the School of Engineering and a new Artificial Intelligence Institute that is forthcoming at Tufts—on philosophical issues being raised by recent advancements in artificial intelligence, emerging media, and other new technologies.

All faculty are committed to bringing into their courses voices and perspectives that have traditionally been under-represented in philosophy, and to creating a classroom environment that allows students of all backgrounds to feel comfortable and encouraged, and to develop their own philosophical voices.     

Applications must include a letter of interest, CV, official transcript from a PhD program, a writing sample, and an e-mail address and phone number at which the candidate may be reached.  Evidence of teaching experience and expertise welcome. Three confidential letters of recommendation should be uploaded directly by recommenders to Interfolio. Applications should be submitted to https://apply.interfolio.com/94603.

Location Deep Springs, California, United States

Job description

Deep Springs College, founded in 1917, lies isolated in a high desert valley in Eastern California’s Inyo- White Range. The school provides its twenty-six students with full scholarships, covering room, board and tuition. Students immerse themselves in a demanding educational project that unites a rigorous, seminar-based liberal arts program with ranch labor and extensive student self-governance.

Long-term professors exert a broad influence on the intellectual culture of this very small community. They should be able to teach self-designed courses within their area of expertise as well as more general classes. Professors are ideally more than specialists and consider their discipline in the context of liberal arts education as a whole. Faculty are encouraged to solicit student participation in their work, or to work with them to design projects of mutual interest. The teaching requirement is two courses per semester, and the position is renewable up to six years. The position is open to candidates at both the junior and senior levels in any field across the humanities.

Job description

Our knowledge entry specialists support the knowledge acquisition process for our AI Platform, Cyc, to give the platform the knowledge it needs to reason logically.

Description

Cycorp is an AI software company focused on Machine Reasoning for the enterprise.  Our AI Platform, Cyc, is the world’s foremost knowledge representation, logical inference and symbolic reasoning platform.  Cyc uses common sense and domain specific knowledge to reason about the world using predicate logic in order to solve real world problems. For example, it is used to parse natural language, help guide patients through healthcare settings, identify and address supply chain issues, provide root-cause analysis for oil well performance issues, and much more.  

Our knowledge entry specialists support the knowledge collection and representation process. This work cuts across many of Cycorp’s internal and external projects by aligning client knowledge, external knowledge sources and the Cyc platform ontology, using knowledge entry tools to rapidly expand Cyc’s ability to reason. Other tasks are likely to include supplementing Cyc’s knowledge of a wide variety of common sense phenomena.

Job Purpose

For the last 38 years, our 50-person team has been building and commercializing Cyc, the world’s only AI that deeply understands what it’s reasoning about (as opposed to strictly statistical machine learning and limited-logic knowledge-graph searching). Human-level Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) only needs to be created once. Now that we are nearing our goal, we’re looking for people to join our team to help us push across the finish line. As a knowledge entry specialist, you will help flesh out the framework that our ontologists and programmers have built, expanding Cyc’s knowledge of the world. Your work will involve using knowledge entry tools to rapidly expand Cyc’s ability to reason about many topics. You should be capable of working efficiently, receiving feedback/coaching and have an interest in artificial intelligence. A background in logic, philosophy or computer science is not required but will be useful.

What it’s like to work as an Knowledge Entry Specialist

  • Most of the work happens in teams, so KE specialists need to be able to communicate effectively and work collaboratively with their colleagues.
  • Cycorp uses the knowledge base to ground all of its projects, which means that KE specialists can be called on to assist in fleshing out Cyc’s knowledge base in many different fields.

Qualifications

  • You must have completed or be actively enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program.  
  • You must be capable of following predetermined protocols for knowledge representation.
  • You must be self-motivated and have an interest in artificial intelligence. Cycorp emphasizes having great and creative employees over having a rigid structured environment.
  • You must be efficient and rigorous. Tasks can involve entering a significant amount of knowledge, and correctness is vital.

Non-requirements that are pluses

  • software experience
  • familiarity with formal logic, especially higher order logic
  • data format experience

Notice

Cycorp is headquartered in Austin, Texas, and applications are understood to be for regular, full or part time employment. Cycorp is an equal opportunity employer. Our employees have been highly effective during COVID-19, working from home, and our tentative plan is to have that continue post-COVID for those who wish to do so. We conform to all the laws, statutes, and regulations concerning equal employment opportunities and affirmative action. We strongly encourage women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans to apply to all of our job openings. We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, age, disability status, Genetic Information & Testing, Family & Medical Leave, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Job Description Summary:
The Furman University Philosophy Department invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position. Responsibilities include: undergraduate teaching (five courses per year), research and publication, and normal non-teaching departmental and university duties.

Rank: Open. AOS: Open. AOC: Open, but the department does not have needs in ethics or bioethics.

Minimum Qualifications:
Ph.D. completed in Philosophy at time of application.

Furman University is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in all facets of university life, and strives to create an anti-racist community through excellence in teaching, mentorship, and programming. Numerous initiatives and programs are underway or planned to promote these ideals, including historic projects, dialogue initiatives, the Center for Inclusive Communities, and a new major in Africana Studies.

The successful candidate will have an interest in working with historically underrepresented students, including students of color, and be committed to assisting the university in its continuing efforts to become a model of inclusive excellence. The philosophy department and the university recognize that our students’ education is enriched by diversifying both our curriculum and our faculty to better reflect the diversity of our social world. We are particularly interested in applicants who can assist us in one or both of these goals.

The philosophy department places particular emphasis on excellence in teaching. Being an effective teacher at a liberal arts college requires more than delivering compelling lectures—it requires being invested in students as the most important aspect of one’s professional life. To this end, the successful candidate must not only speak to a commitment to teaching at a liberal arts institution in their cover letter, but also provide evidence of teaching excellence in the application materials.

In the requested teaching portfolio, we would like to see a statement of teaching philosophy that speaks specifically to a liberal arts context, student evaluations from previous courses taught, sample syllabi, samples of graded student work that demonstrate the sort of feedback that the candidate offers to students, and at least one letter of recommendation from someone who has conducted classroom visits and is familiar with the candidate’s positive impact on students.

Furman University is a selective private liberal arts and sciences college committed to helping students develop intellectually, personally, and interpersonally and providing the practical skills necessary to succeed in a rapidly-changing world. Furman professors are exceptional teacher-scholars who mentor undergraduate students within a campus community that values and encourages diverse ideas and perspectives. Our recently-launched strategic vision, The Furman Advantage, promises students an individualized four-year pathway facilitated by team of mentors and infused with a rich and varied set of high impact experiences outside the classroom that include undergraduate research, study away, internships, community-focused learning, and opportunities to engage across differences.

Furman is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and staff. The University aspires to create a community of people representing a multiplicity of identities including gender, race, religion, spiritual belief, sexual orientation, geographic origin, socioeconomic background, ideology, world view, and varied abilities. Domestic partners of employees are eligible for comprehensive benefits.

The Furman student experience is supported by a rich network of centers and institutes that includes The Riley Institute, The Shi Institute for Sustainable Communities, The Institute for the Advancement of Community Health, The Rinker Center for Study Away and International Education, The Cothran Center for Vocational Exploration, The Shucker Center for Leadership Development, The Malone Center for Career Engagement, and our newest addition, The Center for Inclusive Communities.

Furman is located in Greenville, South Carolina, a racially and culturally diverse community that is one of the fastest growing cities in the Southeast. It has been ranked among "America's Ten Best" by Forbes Magazine. Greenville has a thriving downtown, excellent private and public schools and a vibrant international community. A 20-mile bike and running trail connects the university to Greenville and Travelers Rest, which was named “one of America’s coolest small towns.” It is within a short driving distance of Asheville, Charlotte and Atlanta. The Blue Ridge Mountains and Atlantic Beaches are within easy reach. In keeping with our commitment to equity and inclusion, domestic partners of employees are eligible for comprehensive benefits and faculty/staff affinity groups exist to offer support for faculty/staff that identify as LGBTQIA+ and/or Black /African-American.

Job description

The department of philosophy at Lingnan University, which is one of the strongest in analytic philosophy in Asia, is interested in supporting applications for the prestigious Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS). The department is especially strong in aesthetics, ethics, metaphysics, philosophical logic, and philosophy of science, and also has several members with expertise in other areas such as Chinese philosophy, epistemology, meta-ethics, and philosophy of mind. In the near future, the department will host a new research center focusing on catastrophic risk. In 2022-23, each Fellowship awardee will be provided with an annual stipend of HK$322,800 (approximately US$41,400) and a conference and research-related travel allowance of HK$13,500 (approximately US$1,730) per year for a period up to three years. Also, the first-year tuition fee of HKPFS awardees will be waived (HK$42,100 for the 2021-22 academic year). For an awardee with a normative study period of 4 years, the University will offer the same level of fellowship and conference/research-related travel allowance for their fourth year of study. Those with first class undergraduate degrees and/or (predicted) distinctions in their MA/MPhil degrees are especially encouraged to apply. Over the past four years, a good number of applicants we have supported have secured these fellowships.

You can find out more about Lingnan's philosophy department at http://www.ln.edu.hk/philoso/, and the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship scheme at http://cerg1.ugc.edu.hk/hkpfs/index.html.

Applicants interested in pursuing postgraduate studies (in this case, PhD and MPhil) at our department may also apply to the University directly from 1 November 2021 to 21 January 2022. These applications will not go through the government-funding agency (UGC) but will be evaluated exclusively by our department. Normally, full-time PhD students will be awarded Postgraduate Studentships. In 2021-22, the full monthly stipend is HK$18,090 (amount subject to annual review). We also have a popular research-based 2-year MPhil Philosophy programme. Applicants may apply for admission to our MPhil programmes directly from 1 November 2021 to 21 January 2022. Full-time MPhil students will also be awarded Postgraduate Studentships. In 2021-22, the full monthly stipend is HK$17,830 (amount subject to annual review).

Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
Location Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands
Start date January 1st 2022
Job description

Are you fascinated by history, religion, philosophy, and science? Then you have a part to play as a PhD Candidate / Junior Researcher. You will examine the institutional Catholic Church’s response to the seventeenth century’s new philosophical and scientific currents. Additionally, you will map the internal struggles taking place within the church and its institutions at that time.

The Center for the History of Philosophy and Science at Radboud University, Nijmegen, is looking for a PhD Candidate / Junior Researcher to write a PhD thesis on "Contesting modernity: The suppression of atomism 1640-1680" as part of a four-year PhD project (or a five-year project in case of part-time employment). The aim of the project is to examine the response of the institutional Catholic Church to the seventeenth century's new philosophical and scientific currents.

You will analyse a range of specific published, unpublished or censored documents composed in Italy in the period 1640 to 1680, which were written by members of the Catholic clergy and in one way or another responded to the question of atomism. A description of the project can be found here. You may deviate from the project description in accordance with your own research interests and talents. This project will be conducted in collaboration with the Università di Roma Tre and may involve research stays in Rome.

Requirements

  • You have obtained a Master's degree in the history of philosophy or science or in intellectual history.
  • You are acquainted with scholastic philosophy and terminology.
  • You have some knowledge of early-modern atomism and corpuscularism.
  • You are capable of reading Renaissance Latin (and preferably also Italian).
  • Your English is sufficiently good to write a PhD in that language.
  • You are a team worker, organiser, and an autonomous researcher.
  • You are willing to take on a small amount of teaching (about 10%) in the domain of the history of philosophy.


Conditions of employment
Fixed-term contract: 4 or 5 years.

  • Employment for 0.8 (5 year contract) - 1.0 FTE (4 year contract).
  • The gross starting salary amounts to €2,434 per month based on a 38-hour working week, and will increase to €3,111 from the fourth year onwards (salary scale P).
  • You will receive 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • You will be employed for an initial period of 18 months, after which your performance will be evaluated. If the evaluation is positive, the contract will be extended by 2.5 years (4 year contract) or 3.5 years (5 year contract).
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Care Services. Our Dual Career and Family Care Officer can assist you with family-related support, help your partner or spouse prepare for the local labour market, provide customized support in their search for employment  and help your family settle in Nijmegen.
  • Working for us means getting extra days off. In case of full-time employment, you can choose between 29 or 41 days of annual leave instead of the legally allotted 20.


Additional employment conditions 
Work and science require good employment practices. This is reflected in Radboud University's primary and secondary employment conditions. You can make arrangements for the best possible work-life balance with flexible working hours, various leave arrangements and working from home. You are also able to compose part of your employment conditions yourself, for example, exchange income for extra leave days and receive a reimbursement for your sports subscription. And of course, we offer a good pension plan. You are given plenty of room and responsibility to develop your talents and realise your ambitions. Therefore, we provide various training and development schemes.

Employer
The Center for the History of Philosophy and Science (CHPS) brings historians of philosophy and historians of science together in a single research unit. Its goal is to investigate the immensely rich discipline of natural philosophy and to describe its evolution in time from Antiquity to the 21st century. It pays particular attention to the period between 1250 and 1700, and to the consequences of the fragmentation of the Aristotelian worldview into the manifold of modern scientific disciplines, which no longer share common ontological and epistemological premises. This fragmentation of natural philosophy into different sciences, which do no longer share common ontological and epistemological premises, raises important questions for the contemporary philosopher of science, which are also addressed at CHPS.

Research topics addressed at CHPS include notions of place/space, time, matter, motion, chance and necessity, but also soul, mind and cognition. Within the global academic landscape, CHPS is unique in approaching the history of philosophy and the history of science as historically intertwined phenomena. For this reason, it has attracted staff, PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers from many countries, and functions as an international hub for scholars interested in the combination of the history of philosophy and the history of science. In addition to addressing academic peers, CHPS also reaches out to a wider audience to contribute to a better understanding of the historical trajectory that has led to today's science and technology-driven society.

The members of CHPS publish the journal Early Science and Medicine and the book series Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy and Science. The largest collective project includes the edition of Buridan's commentary on Aristotle's Physics. Other projects address issues as diverse as the relation between the faculty of imagination and scientific image-formation, the effect of Einstein's relativity theory on the philosophy of time in the 1920s and 1930s, Francis Bacon's matter theory, and the development of psychology during the Renaissance.

The Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies is a compact, ambitious organisation with approximately 160 staff and nearly 900 students from the Netherlands and abroad. Our educational programme includes several top-notch degree programmes in both in-depth disciplinary fields of study and interdisciplinary and interfaculty studies. The faculty has innovative education and research programmes with a strong focus on current social issues.

Radboud University
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!

Application procedure
You can apply until 30 September, exclusively using the application form. Kindly address your application to Christoph Lüthy. Please fill in the application form and attach the following documents:

  • Letter of motivation.
  • CV including two names of possible referees.
  • Academic transcript with courses followed and grades obtained.

AOC Philosophy, Philosophy of Law

Location Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands
Start date January 3rd 2022
Job description

The Department of the History of Philosophy of the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies is looking for a PhD candidate to conduct research on Hans Kelsen's interpretation of Plato. Hans Kelsen was one of the most influential jurists and legal philosophers of the twentieth century. His work comprises not only seminal publications on legal theory, but also in-depth investigations into the history of philosophy, including writings on Plato.

The aim of this project is to reconstruct the intellectual and theoretical background of Kelsen’s interpretation of Plato. The project will shed light on the relationship between Kelsen’s writings on the Platonic dialogues and other interpretations of Plato that have been propounded by major intellectuals, philosophers, and classical philologists in the twentieth century. Also, the project will investigate the connections between Kelsen’s approach to the Platonic dialogues and his theory of law. The project will thus provide a novel contribution to the history of the reception of Plato in contemporary thought.

The Department's research is embedded in the Center for the History of Philosophy and Science. The Center has a very cohesive research group. Its members lunch together on a regular basis. They share their research in work-in-progress meetings, and they co-teach, co-publish, and co-organise conferences. PhD supervision is of high quality, not at the least because of the daily presence of supervisors and supervisees at the department. The aforementioned project will be conducted in close cooperation with the Center for Contemporary European Philosophy.

Requirements

  • An MA degree in Philosophy (including Philosophy of Law).
  • Strong conceptual skills.
  • Willingness to teach (your teaching load may be up to 10% of your appointment).
  • Proficiency in English (C1).
  • Excellent reading skills in German.
  • Knowledge of ancient Greek is not required but would be an advantage.


Conditions of employment
Fixed-term contract: 4 years.

  • Employment: 0.8 (5 year contract) - 1.0 FTE (4 year contract).
  • The gross starting salary amounts to € 2,434 per month based on a 38-hour working week, and will increase to € 3,111 from the fourth year onwards (salary scale P).
  • In addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • Duration of the contract: you will be appointed for an initial period of 18 months, after which your performance will be evaluated. If the evaluation is positive, the contract will be extended by 2.5 years (4 year contract) or 3.5 years (5 year contract).
  • The intended start date is 3 January 2022.
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Care Services. Our Dual Career and Family Care Officer can assist you with family-related support, help your partner or spouse prepare for the local labour market, provide customized support in their search for employment and help your family settle in Nijmegen.


Additional employment conditions
Work and science require good employment practices. This is reflected in Radboud University's primary and secondary employment conditions. You can make arrangements for the best possible work-life balance with flexible working hours, various leave arrangements and working from home. You are also able to compose part of your employment conditions yourself, for example, exchange income for extra leave days and receive a reimbursement for your sports subscription. And of course, we offer a good pension plan. You are given plenty of room and responsibility to develop your talents and realise your ambitions. Therefore, we provide various training and development schemes.

Employer
The Department of the History of Philosophy brings together historians of philosophy and historians of science in a single teaching and research unit. As far as teaching is concerned, the Department provides courses in the history of philosophy from Antiquity to the current age for the Faculty's Bachelor's, Master's, and Research Master's programmes. As far as research is concerned, the Center for the History of Philosophy and Science (CHPS), investigates the evolution of natural philosophy from Antiquity to the 21st century. It pays particular attention to the period between 1250 and 1700, and to the consequences of the fragmentation of the Aristotelian worldview into the manifold of modern scientific disciplines. This fragmentation of natural philosophy into different sciences, which no longer share common ontological and epistemological premises, raises important questions for contemporary philosophers, which are also addressed by CHPS. The reception of ancient philosophy in modern and contemporary thought is also crucial in the Department's research. 

Research and teaching topics include the notions of place/space, time, matter, motion, chance and necessity, but also soul, mind and cognition. Within the global academic landscape, CHPS is unique in approaching the history of philosophy and the history of science as historically intertwined phenomena. For this reason, it has attracted staff, PhD candidates, and postdoctoral researchers from many countries, and functions as an international hub for scholars interested in the combination of the history of philosophy and the history of science. In addition to addressing academic peers, CHPS also reaches out to a wider audience to contribute to a better understanding of the historical trajectory that has led to today's science and technology-driven society.

The Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies is a compact, ambitious organisation with approximately 160 staff and nearly 900 students from the Netherlands and abroad. Our educational programme includes several top-notch degree programmes in both in-depth disciplinary fields of study and interdisciplinary and interfaculty studies. The faculty has innovative education and research programmes with a strong focus on current social issues.

Application procedure
Please address your application to Antonio Cimino and submit it, using the application form, no later than 31 October 2021, 23:59 Amsterdam Time Zone.   

Your application should include the following attachments:

  • Letter of motivation.
  • CV including a transcript of records and contact details of two references.
  • A research project proposal (1,000 - 2,500 words) about Kelsen's interpretation of Plato (including a timeline)
  • A writing sample (publication, essay or excerpt from MA thesis).
  • Proof of proficiency in English (C1 level).


The interviews will take place on 26 November.

Our faculty believes in equal opportunities for everyone. We stand for an inclusive community and believe that diversity contributes to education and research quality. We welcome all employees who contribute to the diversity at our faculty through their unique background and perspective.

Agency calls are not appreciated.

The posts are research based with no or minimal teaching duties (depending on the specific rank of the hire, no more than 1 or 2 courses per academic year by mutual agreement). 

While nomination is no guarantee of a fellowship, nominated candidates have a strong chance in the competition: Lingnan Philosophy have fielded a number of successful applicants in recent years, and the overall success rate for all nominated candidates is over 50%.

Job description

The Saxo Institute at the University of Copenhagen is pleased to announce a call for applications for two 2-year postdoctoral positions in medieval philosophy. The positions are for a fixed term from January 1, 2022 (or as soon as possible thereafter) until December 31, 2023.

The postdoctoral researchers will work as members of the research project Exploring Twelfth-Century Philosophy: Alberic of Paris and his School, funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark. The project investigates the philosophical writings stemming from the milieu around the logician Alberic of Paris, who is still a relatively unknown figure in the history of philosophy, but according to contemporary sources was the most formidable rival of one of the greatest and most famous of all medieval philosophers, Peter Abelard. The project aims to identify, analyze and synthesize the core philosophical positions of Alberic and his school and to assess the role of this school of thought in the wider context of twelfth-century philosophy.

JOB DESCRIPTION
One of the two successful candidates will work on the medieval Latin source material and focus especially on select twelfth-century commentaries on Porphyry's Isagoge with the aim of establishing the distinctive views of Alberic and his followers as regards some of the main philosophical themes arising from this text (e.g. the nature and ontological status of universals).

The other of the two successful candidates will work on the medieval Latin source material and focus especially on select twelfth-century commentaries on Aristotle's De interpretatione with the aim of establishing the distinctive views of Alberic and his followers as regards some of the main philosophical themes arising from this text (e.g. the theory of meaning).

The candidates are expected to conduct research at a high international level and to publish the results of their research in high-ranking international journals and/or book series. The candidates are also expected to work closely together with the other members of the research team and to partake in organizing a number of research activities involving the project's substantial network of international scholars (e.g. workshops and conferences; research stays and trips to libraries; visits from visiting scholars; editing of a volume of conference proceedings).

QUALIFICATIONS
To be eligible for the positions, the candidate must have research qualifications at least corresponding to those achieved through a successfully completed PhD in a field of study relevant to the project (philosophy, history of ideas, Latin philology, or similar). The PhD degree must have been obtained a maximum of 4 years before the application deadline (maternity, paternity and certain other forms of leave may be added to this). The candidate must also have documented experience in working with Latin philosophical texts in the original language, proven ability to present and publish research at a high international level, and excellent English communication skills. Previous experience in working with medieval manuscripts will be considered an asset. For further information about the position, please contact PI of the research project Associate professor Heine Hansen ([email protected]).

SALARY AND EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS
Terms of appointment and salary will be in accordance with an agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). The salary range starts at DKK 34,899 (EUR 4,680) per month + a 17,1 % contribution to the pension scheme. It is possible to negotiate salary supplements on an annual basis.

The Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC) have further agreed on a protocol that makes it possible for international researchers employed by the University to achieve a pension exemption, whereby the pension contribution will be paid out as salary. For more information about the different pension schemes, please see http://ism.ku.dk/onarrival/pension/

A special tax scheme is offered to researchers recruited abroad, http://ism.ku.dk/onarrival.

Esther Mackintosh Humanities Scholar of the University

Morningside University invites applications for the Esther Mackintosh Humanities Scholar of the University. This newly established endowed professorship offers a rare opportunity for a scholar to promote and celebrate the value of humanistic inquiry on campus and in the community. Housed in the interdisciplinary Humanities department, this is a 9-month, tenured, faculty position at the rank of associate or full professor to begin in August of 2022.

Morningside University is a private, four-year liberal arts college affiliated with the United Methodist Church, located on a beautiful 68-acre campus located in a residential area in Sioux City, Iowa. The educational programming is designed to meet the needs of undergraduate, post-undergraduate, and graduate students in an increasingly fast-paced world. A small, collegial, and mission driven community, Morningside is dedicated to integration of liberal arts and professional study. Offering more than 65 academic programs (https://www.morningside.edu/academics/), with a 13:1 student:faculty ratio, the University highly values excellence in teaching and learning.

Total enrollment is approximately 2,700 students from nearly all 50 states and almost 20 countries. See https://www.morningside.edu/ for more information.

The Scholar will be part of the humanities department but will report directly to the Vice President of Academic Affairs and receive a separate budget for professional development and community engagement activities. The goal of this structure is to provide the freedom and support to be successful in the scholar’s distinctive charge. This is an exciting opportunity for a humanities scholar who is passionate about the importance of the humanities to higher education and to our society.

Job description

The Center for Population-Level Bioethics (CPLB) at Rutgers University has an open rank faculty opening in ethics and population health. We are open to candidates with a wide range of empirical or normative scholarly interests that are salient to population-level bioethics including but not limited to research ethics with a population focus, health measurement, health disparities, ethics of population health, global justice, and environmental justice. We seek a creative faculty member who is motivated to advance the field of population-level bioethics through scholarship, service, and policy development; has the potential to develop and sustain an extramurally funded research program; contribute actively to their home school’s teaching mission using modern pedagogical techniques; and mentor graduate students and/or students in the health professions. The ideal candidate is an individual with an interdisciplinarily inclined program of research that is informed by the latest findings in disciplines relevant to the candidate’s interests—epidemiology, statistics, medicine, clinical trial methodology, implementation science, economics, law, sociology, or any field that can inform new and interesting things to say about macro-level bioethics.

The faculty member will be primarily appointed to the Center for Population-Level Bioethics with a joint appointment at one of Rutgers’ schools. The faculty member will also be appointed to a Term Endowed Chair that will be held by the Chairholder for a period of five years, with the possibility of reappointment.

An attractive recruitment package will include a competitive salary and start-up funds. The successful candidate must have a doctoral degree or equivalent, a solid track record of scholarship, commensurate with the desired rank, and either a history of receiving extramural support or willingness to develop and expand a grant-seeking practice.

The Center for Population-Level Bioethics (CPLB) is dedicated to the study of macro-level bioethical dilemmas: those that arise outside the clinical encounter, at the level of the population, the state, the country, or the globe. Questions of interest range from the theoretical to the applied, for example how to conceptualize, measure and evaluate disease severity or health inequalities; how to prioritize resources between disease areas, rural and urban patients, and age cohorts or generations; the acceptability of paternalistic health promotion measures; and many others. Our approach emphasizes collaboration and interdisciplinarity, and seeks to inform and be informed by other fields of inquiry such as general ethics and philosophy, health policy, and health economics. We welcome innovative questions and methods and value clear presentation of ideas, potentially using formal tools.

CPLB is part of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS), New Jersey’s academic health center, which takes an integrated approach to educating students, providing clinical care, and conducting research—all with the goal of improving human health. RBHS oversees eight schools, a behavioral health network, and multi-disciplinary centers and 10 institutes. CPLB is creating research partnerships within RBHS, within the rest of Rutgers University, nationally, and internationally. 

CPLB’s offices are located in the center of New Brunswick, about an hour away from New York city, at the beautiful Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research. Rutgers is a leading national research university and New Jersey’s preeminent public institution of higher education. Chartered in 1776 as Queen’s College, it is the eighth oldest higher education institution in the United States and a member of the AAU, the Big Ten, and the CIC. Rutgers’s New Brunswick campus is located at the center of the Boston to Washington DC corridor, with access to New York, Philadelphia, and the Atlantic Ocean beaches within an hour.

Applications will be received and reviewed until the position is filled

To apply, please submit:

  • Cover letter addressing candidate’s qualifications

  • 2 writing samples

  • Curriculum vitae

  • Complete contact information for five references

Please apply online at: https://jobs.rutgers.edu/postings/133585

Job Description

Since its inception at Penn, PPE has been popular and today it is one of the largest majors in the College of Arts and Sciences. The major offers an integrated, cross-disciplinary education that combines broad and rigorous training in the foundations of its allied disciplines.

The Associate Director promotes the activities of the Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) through a variety of means, including: partnering with faculty to find, develop, prepare, and manage research grants; advising prospective and current students, including the day-to-day coordination/advising of the undergraduate major and identifying appropriate faculty mentors; facilitating PPE seminars and lectures in the BeLab; and working collaboratively with SAS Office of Advancement and staff in Development and Alumni Relations to engage students, faculty, donors, alumni and external organizations. With oversight from the SAS Office of Advancement, the Associate Director works to develop a targeted program for engaging its alumni and potential donors. This will be accomplished by focusing on creating opportunities for alumni to reconnect with the program and with one another, effectively articulating the program's mission, obtaining accurate contact information on PPE alumni, and where possible, capitalizing on opportunities to introduce PPE to a broader SAS alumni and donors audience. In consultation with the College Dean and the SAS Office of Advancement, articulate funding needs for the program.

Qualifications:

Bachelor's degree with three to five years of experience, or equivalent combination of education and experience, is required.  Master's degree or PhD in PPE-related disciplines, including psychology, is strongly preferred, as is an interdisciplinary research background related to PPE.  Experience in academic advising preferred.

Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Faculty Fellowships (Fixed term)
Job category Visiting fellowship / Professorship / Fixed term
AOS Open
AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 8
Location Princeton, New Jersey, United States
Start date September 1, 2022
Job description

The University Center for Human Values at Princeton University invites applications for Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Faculty Fellowships for the academic year 2022-23. Fellows devote an academic year in residence at Princeton to research and writing about topics involving human values in public and private life. This full-time visiting program is open to scholars in all disciplines provided their research plans qualify. In recent years fellows have been drawn from fields including philosophy, political theory, literature, history, classics, economics and law, but this list is not meant to be exhaustive.

Fellows are expected to reside in or around Princeton, or demonstrate to the program's satisfaction the ability to be on campus on a daily basis and on short notice in order to fulfill responsibilities relating to in-person participation. Fellows are expected  to be active contributors to the intellectual life of the Center. This includes participating in a weekly seminar attended by fellows and Center faculty to discuss work in progress and in various other seminars, colloquia and lectures sponsored by the Center. Fellows enjoy access to Firestone Library and to a wide range of activities throughout the University.

Candidates must have a doctorate or equivalent professional degree and a strong record of research publications appropriate to their career stage. Typically Fellows hold faculty positions at other universities or colleges; in exceptional cases we consider applications from independent scholars when there is a high level of scholarly achievement. This is not a postdoctoral fellowship program and we do not generally consider candidates who will have held the Ph.D. for less than two years at the time of appointment.

The fellowship period is anticipated to begin on September 1 and run for the academic year. Fellows normally receive stipends of up to one-half their academic-year salaries (subject to a minimum and maximum set each fall). Ordinarily their home institutions provide a portion of their salaries in addition to all benefits, although this is not a requirement for appointment. Stipends for independent scholars will not exceed the maximum for fellows holding appointments elsewhere.

The main considerations in the evaluation of applications are the following:

*The significance of the proposed research and its relevance to the purposes of the University Center for Human Values (see http://uchv.princeton.edu/ for more information);

*The quality of a candidate's previous research and the contribution the candidate is likely to make in the future through teaching and writing;

*The likelihood that the research would benefit from being conducted in the University Center environment.

How to apply
Application type Online
Instructions
HOW TO APPLY: Candidates must submit an online application at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/20741 The following materials will be required: 1. A curriculum vitae; 2. A scholarly paper (of no more than 12,000 words, not including bibliography) written in the past three years; 3. A statement (of no more than 1,500 words) describing the proposed research project and including a brief working title for the project; and 4. Contact information for three referees, including at least one who was not a graduate advisor. Referees will be contacted directly by email with instructions for uploading letters of reference. These materials must be submitted online by the application deadline of Monday, November 1, 2021, 11:59 p.m. ET. We do not accept application materials by any other method. Letters of reference should be submitted by end of business day on Monday, November 8, 2021. The selection committee begins reviewing applications immediately so letters of reference received after the priority deadline may put candidates at a disadvantage. Decisions are expected to be announced in late March 2022. Requisition No: D-21-CHV-00002

The Mahindra Humanities Center invites applications for five one-year postdoctoral fellowships on the topic of the environmental humanities, drawn from any humanistic discipline. We interpret the environmental humanities in the broadest terms, to include all parts of the world and historical eras. Topics may include (but are not limited to) humanistic approaches to climate change, biodiversity, social justice, environmental justice, food justice, regenerative practices, gardening, landscape, urban foraging, health, and animal studies.

We welcome applications from scholars in all fields whose work innovatively engages with the environment and the humanities. In addition to pursuing their own research projects, fellows will be core participants in the bi-weekly seminar meetings for both academic semesters of the fellowship. Other participants will include faculty and graduate students from Harvard and other universities in the region, and occasional visiting speakers. Fellows will also be encouraged to engage with the Center’s existing Environment Forum and the Center’s new initiative, the Intergenerational Humanities (I-HUM) Project on the theme of “Place and Planet.”

Fellows will receive stipends of $65,000, medical insurance, additional research support of $2,500, and (for those not already in residence in Greater Boston) $1,500 in moving expenses. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Harvard for the term of the fellowship.

Applicants for 2022-23 fellowships must have received a doctorate or terminal degree in or after May 2019. Applicants without a doctorate or terminal degree must demonstrate that they have completed all requirements for a terminal degree (i.e. dissertation defense) by August 1, 2022. Scholars from outside the United States are appointed under either the J-1 visa (Research Scholar status) or F-1 OPT (Optional Practical Training), depending on their circumstances. If awarded a fellowship, the term of appointment for international scholars is September 1, 2022-August 31, 2023. The Mahindra Center reserves the right to cancel awards if the recipient is unable to meet these conditions of completion and visa status.

The application deadline for applicants to submit their materials is November 12, 2021. The deadline for receipt of letters of recommendation is December 3, 2021.

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)
Deliberation is often seen as an antidote to the current crisis of democracy. People should not just vote or aggregate their opinions: they should talk, exchange arguments and preferences, and thus achieve consensus or at least mutual understanding through dialogue. But what norms should group deliberation satisfy, for it to count as democratic? What exactly can we expect from collective deliberation?

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).

The Postdoctoral researcher
The postdoc’s primary responsibility will be to conduct research and publish in peer reviewed journals and books. The researcher should also contribute to the ENCODE Project in other ways, such as by giving scholarly presentations and co-organizing reading groups and workshops. Furthermore, they will become part of a large and diverse community of researchers, and are expected to contribute to the Erasmus School of Philosophy’s (ESPhil) educational programme.

Requirements
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who satisfies the following requirements:

  • Completed PhD in philosophy or MA in philosophy and PhD in computer science or mathematics, with demonstrable background in formal ethics, logic, decision theory, and/or agent-based modelling.
  •  (demonstrable) interest in political theory and/or the theory of group deliberation.
  • A strong, promising track-record in terms of international publications and/or public outreach, as witnessed by CV.
  • Excellent speaking and writing skills in English, as demonstrated by published work.
  • An entrepreneurial and team player attitude is highly valued.
  • Ability and willingness to contribute to development and acquisition of externally funded projects.
  • Conceptual capacity, presenting, planning and organizing and monitoring (VSNU competencies for postdocs)

Employment conditions
The position can start as soon as November 15th, 2021, and before April 1st, 2022. It lasts for a maximum of two years. The appointment concerns a temporary postdoctoral research position for two years. This position comes with good employment conditions, compliant with the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (CAO NU). The position begins with a temporary employment contract for 12 months in which the candidate’s suitability is evaluated. After a positive evaluation, an additional contract of 12 months follows, leading to a total appointment of 2 years.

We offer a stimulating and dynamic interdisciplinary research environment, with attractive benefits in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO-NU). In accordance with the conditions applied at Erasmus University Rotterdam as indicated in the Collective Labour Agreement (CAO NU) of the Dutch universities, the salary is dependent on the candidate’s experience and is set at CAO NU scale 11 with a minimum of € 3.746,- and a maximum of € 5.127,- gross per month, on a fulltime basis. In addition, EUR pays an 8% holiday allowance and an end-of-year payment of 8.3% and offers excellent secondary benefits. In addition, EUR takes part in the ABP pension scheme, and we also offer partially paid parental leave. For international spouses we have set up a dual career programme. Moreover, EUR staff members are allowed to make use of the EUR facilities, including the Erasmus sports centre and the University Library.

Diversity

ESPhil is an equal opportunities employer and encourages applications from candidates of all genders, ethnicities, and nationalities. Given the current composition of the ESPhil academic staff and priorities relating to staff diversity, the School especially encourages candidates from an ethnic minority, candidates with an international background, and female candidates to apply.

Erasmus School of Philosophy (ESPhil)

ESPhil has a broad international orientation, with many international students (total number of students is currently about 800), PhDs (about 15), and staff members (about 30), and has excellent connections with universities abroad.

The Department of Philosophy at Denison University invites applications for a two-year Visiting Assistant Professor position beginning in August 2021. Areas of specialization and competence are open. We are looking to diversify our faculty and curriculum without replicating current areas of departmental expertise. A successful candidate will complement a small, but pluralistic department with a tradition of excellence both in undergraduate teaching in a liberal arts context and in active and rigorous scholarship. Candidates will teach a three-three course load including an introductory course, a first year writing course on a topic of their choice, and a course in an area of their research interest. Ph.D. by June 1 preferred. Evidence of excellent teaching at the undergraduate level is a necessary condition for appointment. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups in the profession are especially encouraged to apply. Dossiers should include a letter of application addressing the candidate’s potential contributions to the mission of the department (no longer than 2 pages), CV, three letters of recommendation, graduate school transcripts, evidence of successful teaching, and a writing sample. For information about the department, see denison.edu.  Applications should be submitted to: https://employment.denison.edu/postings/3041

Review of applications will begin March 31 and continue until the position is filled.
