Start date July 2022
Job description

The University Scholars Programme (USP), a premier undergraduate and interdisciplinary honours programme at the National University of Singapore (NUS), plans to hire dedicated individuals to fill two current vacancies. These are full-time, renewable lecturer positions that include opportunities for research funding and for promotion to Associate Professor on the NUS Educator Track, as described below. The primary responsibility for both positions is to design and teach one of our mandatory first-year courses in academic writing and critical thinking, to which you will be expected to bring your own academic and intellectual expertise. Although we are open to any area of expertise, the two available positions have different requirements and expectations, and these are detailed below. You are invited to look through these details and assess your suitability for one or both positions.

Position 1

While applicants from any field of study are welcome to apply for this position, we are especially interested in individuals with backgrounds in STEM, visual arts, film studies, cultural studies, economics, history, and communications. While this is only a general list of fields of study, we are more interested in candidates whose work can be applied to local or regional Asian contexts or concerns, or to important contemporary or future oriented phenomena. Such areas include, but are not limited to, artificial intelligence; issues surrounding digitalization and other impacts of the information age; new industrial revolutions and the future of work; the climate crisis, environmentalism, and the Anthropocene; globalization and cosmopolitanism; and science and environmental writing. You are welcome to suggest other topical areas, but in all cases you should be prepared to explain how you bring your unique interdisciplinary perspective to these topics by connecting your expertise with other fields, and how these may be relevant to the USP community.

Position 2: Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE)

The successful applicant for this position will hold a fractional appointment in the Department of Philosophy, NUS, and fulfil part of their teaching commitment for the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Cross-Disciplinary Programme (PPE-XDP) hosted by the NUS College of Humanities and Sciences. While the overall profile of candidates we are looking for is similar to that of Position 1, we are looking for individuals with proven experience in teaching classes that bring together philosophy and the empirical social sciences (especially political science and economics) in an interdisciplinary way and incorporate issues of relevance to the local or regional Asian context. In addition, the ideal candidate will also demonstrate an interest to develop interdisciplinary as well as PPE-specific pedagogical methods and resources with a focus on application to local and regional issues. More information about the NUS PPE-XDP can be found here: https://chs.nus.edu.sg/programmes/ppe/ .

For both position 1 and 2, the primary responsibility will be to design and teach a writing and critical thinking course as part of an existing suite of modules that introduce our first-year students to the practices and conventions of academic thinking and writing in very small class settings. You should be able to demonstrate your ability to design and teach such a course by providing evidence, which does not have to be limited to prior experience in teaching writing courses or how you have systematically guided students in written assignments. This can also include intentionality and thoughtfulness, whether informed by scholarship on writing curricula and pedagogy, or more general reflection about the particular demands of teaching writing.

A secondary responsibility is to contribute to other parts of USP education and more broadly to new developments in interdisciplinary honours education in NUS. In academic year 2022/2023, the USP will be merged with Yale-NUS College to form a yet-to-be named honours college. The curriculum is expected to be based on a combination of the existing curricula of both entities. Since the new curriculum is yet to be defined, we ask that you familiarize yourself with the current USP curriculum (http://www.usp.nus.edu.sg/curriculum/overview/), and request that you define at least one role for yourself beyond the teaching of writing and critical thinking. This role could include designing and teaching more specialised, knowledge-based classes that are interdisciplinary in nature and draw on your own interests and expertise.  Another option is for you to offer original ideas about what other kinds of contributions you can bring to interdisciplinary education in NUS in small class settings. Generally, all these classes maintain small faculty-to-student ratios. No matter what secondary role you see yourself performing, you should have a commitment to innovation in undergraduate and honours education, be devoted to your own research and teaching excellence, and have the willingness and ability to engage students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds.

Candidates must hold a PhD by August 2022 and should be able to begin at that time. Remuneration and benefits are highly competitive on the global research university level.  Salary, for instance, is competitive with worldwide standards while benefits include relocation assistance and a housing subsidy for the first nine years.  Appointments begin at the level of Lecturer on the Educator Track, or possibly the level of Senior Lecturer if previous work experience warrants it. Although the USP Educator Track is not a tenurable line, it offers a pathway to promotion to Associate Professorship on an open contract, as well as opportunities for research funding, including overseas research and conference travel. The contract is for three years in the first instance and is renewable subject to good performance.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, clearly specifying which of the two positions they are applying for (position 1, position 2, or both), a CV, and two further statements, each of no more than 500 words. The first statement or proposal briefly describes a prospective writing and critical thinking course. The second statement articulates the secondary role you expect to play in the USP beyond that of teaching writing, as mentioned two paragraphs earlier. The NUS Human Resource Office also requires you to submit documentary proof of all your university qualifications, and this would be a single PDF file containing all your degree certificates. Finally, the application submission process is electronic, using the NUS CHRS platform. To apply, please visit https://careers.nus.edu.sg/NUS/job/Lecturer-%28University-Scholars-Programme%29/5643044/?locale=en_GB and click on the “Apply now” link. First time users must create a new account before proceeding.  Once logged in, you will need to upload three separate files for the application. The PDF file containing your CV should be uploaded through the “Resume” field. A second file containing your cover letter and the two statements should be uploaded to the “Cover Letter” field. The third file with your degree certificates should be uploaded to the “Education” field. We have no further upload requirements even though there are more upload options on the online form. Please complete the other sections as required. Applications received by 8 Nov 2021 will receive full consideration.

Interviews will normally be conducted online. Candidates who are further shortlisted will be asked to provide three letters of reference (though you may also send them along with your initial application, in the same file as the cover letter and statements, if you wish). Only shortlisted applicants will be notified. We plan to invite several candidates for campus visits, subject to international travel restrictions, early in 2022. In cases where overseas candidates are unable to travel to Singapore, alternative online means may be used to substitute for in-person campus visits.

Please email all enquiries specific to this advertisement to [email protected] . More information about the USP and our curriculum can be found on our website: http://usp.nus.edu.sg/. Additional information about Academic Appointments at NUS can be found here: http://www.nus.edu.sg/careers/

Requirements

Areas of Specialization:

Philosophy of Science; or Epistemology; or Philosophy of Biology or Chemistry or Physics

These posts arise in connection with a Senior Research Fellowship awarded to Professor Darrell Rowbottom, which will run from 2022–2027. The abstract for this project follows:

Philosophy of Contemporary and Future Science

Science has changed considerably in recent decades and continues to change at a remarkable rate. Many of the changes concern how science is done. Computer simulations are used to make predictions and to propose explanations. Gigantic databases of information – collections of ‘big data’ – are analyzed for patterns, to generate and test hypotheses. New areas of interdisciplinary science are forming, which involve attempts to integrate approaches from the older natural scientific disciplines of chemistry, physics, and biology. And artificial intelligence (AI) is being used to perform tasks that humans simply cannot. On the horizon are AI scientists.

This project will involve philosophers and scientists working together. It will examine some of the difficulties created by these new approaches and emerging developments, and tackle some of the interesting questions that they raise about the future of science. Some of the results will be of practical significance for science, e.g. concern how problems in collaborations involving different areas of science may be addressed, and other results will be of intellectual significance, e.g. in understanding the limits of current and future science.

Some of the specific questions this project will address are as follows. To what extent can experiments done on computers – computer simulations – stand in for experiments done ‘for real’, in the laboratory or the field? How can conflicts about what counts as a good method of inquiry, between scientists working in different areas, be resolved effectively? How does the changing social structure of science bear on what we should expect future science to produce? What are the advantages and disadvantages of having AI perform specific functions in future science? How might AI best be deployed?

The project will involve a team of ten collaborators from the natural sciences and philosophy, based in Hong Kong and Europe.

Professor Rowbottom is now seeking Two Postdoctoral Fellows to work on the project over the course of three years. They will later be joined by at least one other postdoc and a funded PhD student.

The fellows will be based in Hong Kong but spend several months in the UK on placements with scientists and philosophers working in cognate areas.

The ideal candidate would have expertise in philosophy of science or epistemology and have some background in biology, chemistry, or physics. Experience of working with scientists in the past or knowledge of interdisciplinary areas of science would be advantageous.

Applicants should have a PhD degree in Philosophy by the start of the appointment. The starting date of the position is open to negotiation but should be in 2022.

Applicants are expected to have publications in leading journals or evidence of the ability to publish in such journals (e.g., in the form of writing samples).

The appointee will work as part of the research team headed by Professor Rowbottom. This will involve: (1) carrying out directed research (including research in collaboration with scientists during placements and other team members); (2) authorship and co-authorship of papers suitable for publication in leading journals; (3) authorship and submission of derivative grant proposals to funding bodies; (4) organizing seminars, reading groups, workshops and other related research activities; (5) teaching occasional courses at undergraduate and / or postgraduate levels; (6) performing occasional outreach activities (such as lectures aimed at the general public); and (7) managing/updating the project website.

The teaching load will be one or two courses per year, distributed according to the departmental needs and upon mutual agreement. English will be the language of instruction.


Appointment

The salary for the posts will be approximately $40,000 HKD per month. Fringe benefits include annual leave, medical and dental benefits, mandatory provident fund, gratuity and incoming passage and baggage allowance (where appropriate). Appointments will normally be made on contract basis for three years. Suitably qualified applicants may be offered appointment with the functional title and role of ‘Research Assistant Professor’.


Application Procedure (online application only)

Please click "Apply Now" to submit your application. Applicants should include a letter of interest, a CV and one writing sample in the application. Applicants should also provide names and contact information of two referees to whom applicants’ consent has been given for their providing references.  Personal data collected will be used for recruitment purposes only.

Informal inquiries concerning the post can be directed to Professor Darrell Rowbottom, at [email protected]

We are an equal opportunities employer. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the post is filled. Qualified candidates are advised to submit their applications early for consideration.

The University reserves the right not to make an appointment for the post advertised, or to fill the post by invitation or by search. We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.

Post Doctoral Research Fellow 

Job no: 510165
Position Type: Staff Full Time
Campus: UMass Boston
Department: Philosophy
Date opened: 15 Sep 2021 Eastern Daylight Time
Applications close: 01 Dec 2021 Eastern Standard Time

General Summary: 

The Applied Ethics Center (AEC) and the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET) are excited to invite applications for a full-time Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in the Future of Work at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The post is fixed-term for 24 months from the date of appointment.

Some forecasters believe automation and other emerging technologies will cause a rapid loss of traditional employment in the coming decades. Other forecasters argue that there will not be a net loss of jobs, but foresee instead a rapid innovation of new jobs, and transformation of existing jobs. Policies to address the rapidly changing labor market include reforming higher education and job re-training, shortening the work week, a federal jobs guarantee, and a universal basic income. Whether work is threatened or not, some see a post-work future as a desirable goal of public policy, while others believe work is essential to meaning and social engagement. How can higher education focus more on non-automatable skills like creativity and social-emotional intelligence? What are the impacts of employment versus guaranteed income? Many of us find the primary locus of meaning in our work. Would living in a world with less, or transformed, work be less meaningful?  The Future of Work Fellow will help AEC and IEET research the academic and policy work being done on these questions.

About the Applied Ethics Center at UMass Boston

The Applied Ethics Center (AEC) is located in the Philosophy Department at the University of Massachusetts Boston (www.umb.edu/ethics), and promotes research, teaching, and awareness of ethics in public life.  Through public conversations, specialized courses, and research projects, the center creates a forum for exploring topics ranging from the meaning of artificial Intelligence to the ethics of fighting terrorism to the status of controversial public monuments. 

The AEC is directed by associate professor of philosophy Nir Eisikovits.  Before coming to UMass Boston Professor Eisikovits was associate professor of legal and political philosophy at Suffolk University, where he co-founded and directed the Graduate Program in Ethics and Public Policy. He writes on the ethics of war, transitional justice and on how societies come to terms with their past.

About the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies

The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET) is a technoprogressive thinktank founded in 2005 by Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom and sociologist James Hughes.  The IEET (ieet.org), a 501c3 nonprofit registered in Connecticut, promotes ideas about how technological progress can increase freedom, happiness, and human flourishing in democratic societies. The IEET seeks to cultivate academic, professional, and popular understanding of the social implications of emerging technologies, both positive and negative, and to encourage responsible public policies for their safe and equitable use.

The IEET Executive Director James Hughes is a bioethicist and sociologist who has taught at the University of Chicago, the University of Connecticut, Trinity College and the University of Massachusetts Boston. He now serves as an Associate Provost at the University of Massachusetts Boston. He is author of Citizen Cyborg: Why Democratic Societies Must Respond to the Redesigned Human of the Future, co-editor of Surviving the Machine Age: Intelligent Technology and the Transformation of Work, and many articles and chapters. 

Examples of Duties: 

The Future of Work Fellow will be expected to teach between one and two courses per year, write academic articles for publication and present at relevant conferences in consultation with the AEC and IEET. Fellows will be expected to help raise awareness of these issues as a guest classroom lecturer, through writing popular essays, and being a press contact for interviews and podcasts. The Fellow will help organize lectures on these topics by emerging and established scholars. The Fellowship will be capped by a conference on The Future of Work. The Fellow will work with the AEC and IEET to plan the conference and related publications.

Qualifications: 

The ideal candidate will have a PhD (by September 1, 2022) and a publication record in philosophy, law, computer science, a social scientific discipline, or related fields, and a demonstrated interest in the social, ethical, legal and/or economic implications of artificial intelligence, employment, social welfare and/or technological change.

Location Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States
Start date September 2022
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
  • Research proposal
  • Recent writing sample

Please note: Name and contact information for three professional references will be requested, but no letters will be accepted at this stage.

The deadline to submit an application is November 15, 2021, with decisions likely in February 2022. Please note that the application form will be saved automatically while in progress, but no edits or alterations will be allowed once you have submitted the application. Please direct questions regarding this application process to [email protected].

Location Canberra, Michelago, Australia
Start date From early to mid 2022
Job description

Classification: Level B

Salary package: $101,805 - $115,428 per annum, plus 17% Super

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.

Enquiries: Professor Seth Lazar T: +61 42032954 E: [email protected]

PhD Candidate in the History of Philosophy (Fixed term)
Job category Postdoc or similar / Fixed term
AOS History of Philosophy, Kelsen’s interpretation of Plato
AOC Philosophy, Philosophy of Law
AOC categories History of Philosophy
Philosophy of Law
Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
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.

Hong Kong Postdoctoral Fellowship (Fixed term)
Job category Postdoc or similar / Fixed term
AOS Open
AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 3
Location Tuen Mun, Hong Kong
Start date Flexible; between March and December 2022
Job description

We are looking for excellent philosophers to nominate for a Hong Kong Research Grants Council Postdoctoral Fellowship competition. The fellowships last for 36 months, with an initial annual salary of 393,624 HKD (~ 50,000 USD) that can be topped up at the department’s discretion, and a research and travel allowance of 12,920 HKD (plus the opportunity to apply for additional research funds if desired). 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%. More information can be found here: https://www.ugc.edu.hk/eng/rgc/funding_opport/pdfs/index.html

Eligible candidates must either (a) have obtained / been conferred a PhD degree or an equivalent qualification on or after 1 January 2018, or (b) will complete the requirement of a PhD degree or an equivalent qualification by 31 August 2022. The latter condition is strict, so it is essential that candidates without a PhD currently in hand are able to confirm that they will have completed all of the requirements for their degree (including having defended their dissertation / thesis) by the indicated date. 

Candidates working in any area of philosophy are welcome to apply. However, candidates with interests aligned with existing members of the department are more likely to be successful. A list of staff members and their interests can be found on our webpage: https://www.ln.edu.hk/philoso/

Applicants should email a short cover letter, CV and writing sample to Peter Hawke ([email protected]) with subject line "Postdoctoral Fellowship Application". Shortlisted candidates will additionally be asked to submit two letters of reference and a research proposal. The deadline for applications is 20 September 2021. Interviews will be conducted soon afterwards, with nominations to be decided around the beginning of October and final fellowship results announced in March 2022.

Please feel free to email Peter Hawke ([email protected]) with any questions or for further information.

About Philosophy at Lingnan: The Department of Philosophy at Lingnan University is one of the best in Asia. It has particular research strengths in aesthetics, ethics, philosophy of science, Chinese philosophy, philosophy of mind, philosophical logic, and metaphysics.

We particularly encourage proposals focusing on problems of practical importance that have broader theoretical interest.

The Shapiro Fellow will spend from one to three years at Princeton conducting research and teaching the equivalent of one course each year (subject to sufficient enrollments and approval by the Dean of the Faculty). They will participate in the Ira W. DeCamp Seminar in Bioethics and will be invited to participate in other activities of the University Center for Human Values including a year-long research seminar for visiting fellows and Center faculty.

Applicants should not have more than two years of postdoctoral experience by the date of appointment. An applicant may have a background in any area of ethical studies, not necessarily in bioethics. However, the proposed research plan should be related to the field of bioethics.

Applications will be evaluated on the basis of the applicant's previous accomplishments and the promise of the proposed research project in bioethics. The capacity to contribute to the University's teaching program will also be taken into account.

Term of Appointment

The term of the fellowship is one year, normally beginning September 1, 2022, with the possibility of renewal for up to two additional years pending satisfactory performance. Appointment will be made to the rank of Postdoctoral Research Associate; the Shapiro Fellow will also carry the title of Lecturer, if teaching.

Princeton University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

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: 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.

Job description

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.

How to apply
Application type Online
Instructions
In addition to biographical and professional information, applicants are asked to submit: 1. A curriculum vitae. 2. A statement of the research project (1,000-3,000 words) that provides a detailed description of what the applicant proposes to do during the fellowship year. 3. One chapter- or article-length writing sample (no longer than 40 pages). 4. Names and contact information of three referees, who will be asked by a system-generated email to upload a letter of recommendation once the candidate’s application has been submitted. Three letters of recommendation are required, and the application is considered complete only when three letters have been received. Recommendations may be those included in the applicant’s placement dossier, but they must specifically address the proposed research project. Letters should be uploaded to the electronic application.
