3-year grant for a PhD in Philosophy

Deadline: 31.Januar 2008

“The self in social spaces” An interdisciplinary investigation from perspectives of philosophy, psychology and social sciences Thematic priority: The Self in Social Spaces Faculty: Faculty of Philosophy, Education, and Journalism Department: Department of Philosophy Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Albert Newen Project description: The leading question of the interdisciplinary project is: What is the relation between self and social groups (like family, religious groups, political groups, nations, etc.)? Is the individual self constituted by the social groups or a social group by the plurality of different individuals? It is presupposed that the terms “I”, “self” and “person” are all denoting the living human being as an individual but they are highlighting different facets. In the literature both extreme views are present, e.g. that the self is completely constituted by the social group (G.H. Mead) as well as the opposite view that the self is an individual that – although it is contingently influenced by a culture – mainly develops according to a standard cognitive ontogenesis (Piaget). The project aims at determining the interdependence of self and social groups. The leading working hypothesis could be that the constitution of the self has an individual cognitive as well as a social normative dimension which should be carefully analyzed. Open questions are: (1) Can we really distinguish these two dimensions of the self? (2) If so, can we exactly work out the social dimension of the self? (3) How do we have to situate the emotional dimension of a self, is it part of the nonsocial cognitive dimension of a person or of the social interrelation with a group? (4) What follows for the constitution of social groups form a new account of the normative and emotional dimensions of an individual? The applicants should have an exam (M.A. or equivalent) in philosophy and an additional qualification in at least one of the following subjects: psychology, social sciences, social neurosciences. Further details concerning the application process can be found: http://www.research-school.rub.de/cms/application.html The application must be send to the research school Bochum.

Several institutions, Europe

“DISCOS – Disorders and Coherence of the Embodied Self” - Marie Curie Research Training Network

Deadline: 31.07.2007

We invite applications for 15 positions from highly motivated graduates coming from the neurosciences, medicine, psychology and philosophy. Qualified women are especially encouraged to apply. The Research Training Network DISCOS is an attempt to investigate the fundaments of the human person through an interdisciplinary endeavour of both the biomedical sciences and the humanities. Disorders of the self, i.e. of self-awareness, agency and identity, are due to varying combinations of neurobiological, psychological and social factors, and include e.g. schizophrenia, depression, dementia, sequelae of stroke or brain injury, severe personality disorders, post-traumatic and somatoform disorders.
DISCOS is a multi-disciplinary network of 10 partners from 7 European countries which aims at
a) determining the role of neurobiological, psychological and sociocultural factors for the development of a coherent self and
b) identifying dysfunctional mechanisms and influences leading to disorders of self-coherence.
The network’s training program combines local specialist with network-wide training activities including summer schools, workshops, individual training-through-research, secondments to other network partners, education in transferable skills, regular network meetings and systematic career development. In addition to the monthly salary, allowances for the transnational mobility program will also be provided.

Positions are available for 10 Early Stage Researchers (ESR = postgraduates) and 5 Experienced Researchers (ER, min. 4 years research experience) on the following topics:
Neuroscience: Coherence and Disorders of the ‘Basic Self’
1) Studying the basic sense of self by clarifying the role of the sensorimotor system for self-agency and intersubjectivity: basic processes of intentional action in macaque monkeys, normal and autistic children, processing of basic emotions in human healthy volunteers and schizophrenic patients. Candidates with programming skills will be welcome (E-Prime, Matlab, etc.) (Parma, Prof. Gallese)
2) Examination of the neural basis for severe disorders of self-awareness and agency in neurological disorders such as anosognosia and/or unilateral neglect, implying options for therapeutic re-integration of conflicting representations of the body (Lyon, Prof. Rosetti)
3) Investigation of the neural basis of elementary personal identity in patients with altered states of consciousness, e.g. vegetative and minimally conscious patients; development of an ethical framework for treatment of severe brain injury (Liège, Prof. Laureys)

Philosophy of Mind/Phenomenology: Coherence / Disorders of the ‘Subjective Self’
4) Development of a conceptual framework for the role of bodily awareness, spatial/temporal orientation and bodily simulation of others’ actions for self-consciousness and intersubjectivity. Application of the self-model theory of subjectivity to the psychopathology of schizophrenia and autism (Mainz, Prof. Metzinger)
5) (a) Phenomenological analysis of different levels of self experience
(b) Development of a clinical taxonomy of self-disorders, in particular concerning dissociations between minimal and extended sense of self
(c) a psychopathological investigation of the connection of memory and self-disorders
(d) an empirical study of schizophrenia as a disorder of embodied self-awareness, using the newly developed EASE instrument (Copenhagen, Prof. Zahavi, Prof. Parnas; Heidelberg, Prof. Fuchs)

Developmental Psychology: Coherence and Disorders of the ‘Autobiographical Self’“
6) (a) Studying the role of caregiver’s affective mirroring behaviour ("social biofeedback”) for self-development,
(b) the role of “mentalising” (using a „theory of mind”) for understanding others and for forming secure attachment patterns, and
(c) temperamental features of hyper-control seeking for the development of attachment disorganisation and psychopathologies of the self (Budapest, Prof. Gergely).
7) Investigation of the development of social cognition in adolescence, using a range of methodologies including the Child and Adolescent Attachment Interview, theory of mind tasks and behavioural measures of mentalisation to detect early antecedents of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and to develop specific treatment concepts (London, Prof.Fonagy).

Conceptual Integration, Therapeutic and Ethical Integration
8) Creation of a multi-level, integrated model of embodied self-coherence capable to assimilate the inputs from the above mentioned studies (Heidelberg, Prof. Fuchs).
9) (a) Development of an integrated ethical framework, including classifications and guidelines, for choosing neurobiological, psychological and social approaches in the prevention and treatment of major self-disorders, and
(b) an investigation of prevalence and neurobiological concomitants of somatoform dissociation as an expression of altered coherence of the embodied self (Munich, Prof. Henningsen)

Starting dates of the positions are between 01.08.2007 and 01.01.2008 (duration 36 months for ESR, 24 months for ER). If you are interested in one of these positions, please send your application (preferably by email, and by naming the post you are interested in) including CV and, if possible, two references (name, email, phone) before the closing date to the network coordinator:
Prof. Thomas Fuchs, Thomas.Fuchs@med.uni-heidelberg.de; Department of Psychiatry, University Hospital Heidelberg, Vossstr. 2; D-69115 Heidelberg, Germany.

Note: The mobility condition for Research Training Networks implies that, as a rule, researchers have to be appointed in a country different from their own nationality.

Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Deutschland

Zwei Stellen für Doktorandinnen bzw. Doktoranden

Deadline: 26.1.2007

Zwei BAT IIa/2-Stellen (bzw. Äquivalente im TVÖD) für zwei Doktorandinnen bzw. Doktoranden im Fachbereich Philosophie Am Philosophischen Institut der Ruhr-Universität Bochum werden ab 1. März 2007 mit Mitteln der VolkswagenStiftung unter Leitung von Prof. Dr. Albert Newen zwei Forschungsprojekte weitergeführt: eine wissenschaftliche Nachwuchsgruppe zum Thema „Selbstbewusstsein und Begriffsbildung beim Menschen“ und ein Projekt zum Schlüsselthema „Wissen und Können. Kognitive Fähigkeiten biologischer und künstlicher Systeme“. Eine der beiden verfügbaren Promotionsstellen (jeweils eine halbe Stelle BAT IIa) soll in eines der beiden Projekte integriert werden. Die zweite Promotionsstelle kann thematisch auch unabhängig von den Projekten, jedoch im Bereich der theoretischen Philosophie besetzt werden. Beide Stellen können zum 1. März 2007 besetzt werden. Sie stehen zunächst für eine Laufzeit von zwei Jahren zur Verfügung (mit Option auf Verlängerung). (i)Kernziel des Projekts Selbstbewusstsein ist es, eine Theorie zu entwickeln, die es erlaubt, menschliches Selbstbewusstsein (als das bewusste Erleben der eigenen mentalen Zustände) und die damit einhergehenden Begriffsbildungen eines Subjekts (z. B. der Ich-Begriff, der Personenbegriff, der Begriff des eigenen Wissens) adäquat zu beschreiben. Dabei sollen die neuesten Ergebnisse der empirischen Kognitionswissenschaften, insbesondere in Hirnforschung, Entwicklungspsychologie und Linguistik, ausführlich berücksichtigt werden. Darüber hinaus sollen in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Hirnforscher Prof. Dr. Dr. Kai Vogeley neue Experimente zur Bestimmung der neuronalen Grundlagen menschlichen Selbstbewusstseins entworfen und durchgeführt werden. (ii)Kernziel des Projekts Wissen und Können ist es, eine neue Theorie des Könnens zu entwickeln, die es erlaubt, menschliche Fertigkeiten als wissensbasiert zu charakterisieren, indem die Repräsentationsstrukturen, die dem Können zu Grunde liegen genau analysiert werden: Vorbegriffliche und begriffsbasierte Fertigkeiten sollen dabei von explizit propositional strukturiertem Wissen unterschieden werden. Das methodische Vorgehen stützt sich dabei auf die interdisziplinäre Zusammenarbeit von philosophischer Theoriebildung, psychologischer Operationalisierung und der Messung relevanter neuronaler Korrelate mit den bildgebenden Verfahren der Hirnforschung. (iii)Mögliches Profil einer projektunabhängigen Dissertation: Eine Dissertationsstelle ist vorgesehen zur Förderung eines Dissertationsprojekts, in dem ein zentrales Thema der theoretischen Philosophie im Stile der analytischen Philosophie ausgearbeitet wird. Thematisch könnte dies in einen der folgenden Bereiche fallen: Sprachphilosophie, Philosophie des Geistes, Philosophie der Zeit, Handlungstheorie, Wahrheitstheorie, Ontologie, Erkenntnistheorie; Von den Bewerberinnen und Bewerbern wird ein sehr guter Magister-oder Staatsexamensabschluss im Fach Philosophie erwartet. Zusätzlich sind für eine Mitarbeit in einem der beiden Forschungsprojekt gründliche Kenntnisse in mindestens einem der folgenden Bereiche erforderlich: kognitive Psychologie, Verhaltensbiologie, künstliche Intelligenz oder Hirnforschung. Die Stelleninhaber werden in eine aktive wissenschaftliche Nachwuchsgruppe zum Oberthema „Philosophie der Kognition“ unter der Leitung von Prof. Newen eingebettet. Dazu gehören regelmäßige intensive wissenschaftliche Diskussionen, Konferenzteilnahmen und die eigenständige Organisation von Tagungen. Eine regelmäßige Präsenz an der Ruhr-Universität Bochum ist Voraussetzung für die Übernahme einer Stelle. Bewerbungen mit den üblichen Unterlagen (Lebenslauf, Kopien der Zeugnisse und Urkunden, Liste der Publikationen, der Vorträge, der Konferenzteilnahmen und ggf. der Lehrveranstaltungen, aber ohne Einsendung von Schriften) sowie eine Projektidee für eine Promotion (ca. 3 Seiten) sind als Ausdruck und/oder als e-Mail-Unterlagen bis zum 26. Januar 2007 zu senden an: Prof. Dr. Albert Newen, Philosophisches Seminar, Universität Tübingen, Bursagasse 1, 72070 Tübingen Da Herr Newen einen Ruf an die Ruhr-Universität Bochum angenommen hat, werden die Forschungsprojekte zum 1. März 2007 von Tübingen nach Bochum transferiert. Rückfragen bitte richten an: newen@uni-tuebingen.de Weitere Informationen: allgemein: http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/philosophie/newen/ zum Projekt Selbstbewusstsein: http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/selbstbewusstsein/nlink.html

University of Aberdeen, UK

Regius Chair of Moral Philosophy (FPH006A), Regius Chair of Logic (FPH007A)

Deadline: 24.11.2006

As the second stage of a major reconstruction of the department of Philosophy at Aberdeen, the University wishes to appoint exceptional scholars of international standing to the Regius Chair in Logic and the Regius Chair in Moral Philosophy. Philosophy has been taught at the University of Aberdeen since its foundation in 1495 by, among others, Thomas Reid and Alexander Bain. The Regius Chair in Moral Philosophy was founded in King's College in 1505; the Regius Chair in Logic, originally entitled the Regius Chair of Logic and Moral Philosophy, was established in Marischal College and was renamed in 1860 on the merger of the two Colleges to found the modern University; it may be held by anyone specialising in fields of Philosophy which do not fall within the broad definition of Moral Philosophy.
The Philosophy Department is an integral part of the School of Divinity, History and Philosophy and benefits from working closely with other disciplines within the School and the College. It has a full undergraduate programme and a newly-established Masters programme. The successful candidates will be expected to provide academic leadership and to play a central role in the rebuilding of the department, which, according to the School's strategic plan is to grow to a strength of 10-12 members in the process of reconstruction. In accordance with procedure, successful candidates will first be appointed to a chair in the University; they will subsequently be nominated to the appropriate Regius Chair for approval by the Crown through the Scottish Executive. It is anticipated that interviews will take place in February 2007.
For further details, see the departmental website at www.abdn.ac.uk/philosophy. Candidates wishing to discuss the posts informally may contact Professor Robert Frost, Head of the School of Divinity, History and Philosophy, tel. +1224-273903, e-mail: robert.frost@abdn.ac.uk. or Dr Peter Baumann, tel. +1224-272368, e-mail p.baumann@abdn.ac.uk.

University of Twent, The Netherlands

Two Ph.D. Students (M/F, fulltime)

Deadline: 03.10.2006

The Department of Philosophy is looking for Two Ph.D. Students (M/F, fulltime)
Two PhD students for the project Evaluating the Cultural Quality of New Media. Towards a Philosophy of Human-Media Relations.
The two PhD positions are part of a prestigious and exciting international research project in philosophy named “Evaluating the Cultural Quality of New Media”. This five-year project, which will include five researchers and will involve collaboration with leading international scholars and research centres, has as its aim to develop a framework for better normative analyses of new media and new media culture, especially in relation to their contribution to the quality of life (“the good life”) and the quality of society. Project leader is Dr. Philip Brey. The project will be part of a new international Centre of Excellence in Ethics and Technology of the departments of philosophy of Twente University, Delft University of Technology and Eindhoven University of Technology.
Applications are accepted for three different projects: Ph.D Project 1 - The Quality of Virtual Environments and Tools This subproject aims to perform a philosophical analysis of the implications of ever increasing virtualization for the quality of life and of society. Virtualization is defined as the digital production of interactive structures, whether graphical or symbolic, that mirror things and events in the physical world. What are the implications of this process for moral and social identity, embodiment, and conceptions of reality, and how can these implications be normatively evaluated?
Ph.D. Project 2 – The Quality of Computer-Mediated Social Relations This subproject focuses on computer-mediated social relations and practices in friendships, love relationships, and community life. Increasingly, the social world is held together by electronic networks. More and more, communication, social relationships, and community formation take place over such networks. The aim of the project is to perform a philosophical analysis of the implications of this trend for the quality of life and of society.
Ph.D. Project 3 – Societal Appraisals of the Cultural Quality of New Media This project will perform a study of appraisals of new media that are made by representatives of major ideologies or worldviews, with the aim of assessing how they relate to conceptions of the good life and the good society held by these ideologies. It will study liberal, communitarian, conservative, religious and postmaterialist evaluations of new media, and will try to assess which ideologies see themselves as winners and losers in the development of a new media culture. It will also provide critiques of current ideological stances on new media.
Only the two best candidates out of all applicants will be offered a position. Selection will only be based on the quality of the candidate, and not on his or her preference for a particular project, except that the two appointments to be made will be for different projects. You may apply for more than one project if you wish.
Profile For all three projects: a Master’s degree or equivalent degree in philosophy. Consideration will also be given to candidates with a multidisciplinary Master’s degree on a topic relevant to the project and some background in philosophy, and to exceptional candidates with only a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. Demonstrable interest in philosophical issues relating to information technology and new media. Good analytical skills. Good communication skills in English, in writing as well as orally. Creativity, open- mindedness, and an ability to develop new ideas.
Offer A four-year full-time Ph.D. position starting November 1, 2006. The gross salary is € 1.933,- in the first year going up to € 2.472,- in the fourth year (€ 25.552,- and € 32.677,- per annum, respectively, including vacation pay). Both Ph.D. positions come with a budget of up to € 8,000,- for travel and conference attendance.
Information and application A description of the overall project, the three subprojects and a FAQ can be retrieved from http://www.ceptes.nl/vici. Applicants are advised to read these texts carefully before applying. For questions not answered on the website you can also contact the project leader, dr. Philip Brey (e-mail: p.a.e.brey@utwente.nl). Your application should contain the following documents: a letter of application which explains your interest in the position and explains your qualifications (this letter should contain some suggestions on how you would want to approach the project you apply for); a curriculum vitae which includes the name and e-mail address/telephone number of one of your professors, preferably the supervisor of your master’s thesis; a copy of your master’s thesis; copies of publications, if any; an academic transcript that contains a list of subjects taken and grades received (this may be an unofficial version or scanned copy; we can request the original later).

Philosophisches Seminar der Universität Tübingen,

1 Postdoc Stelle und 2 Doktorandenstellen

Deadline: 19. Jan. 2006

Am Philosophischen Seminar der Universität Tübingen werden mit Mitteln der VolkswagenStiftung unter Leitung von Prof. Dr. Albert Newen zwei Forschungsprojekte durchgeführt: eine wissenschaftliche Nachwuchsgruppe zum Thema „Selbstbewusstsein und Begriffsbildung beim Menschen“ und ein Projekt zum Schlüsselthema „Wissen und Können. Kognitive Fähigkeiten biologischer und künstlicher Systeme“. Es sind eine projektübergreifende Postdoc-Stelle (ganze BAT-Stelle) oder zwei Promotionsstellen (jeweils eine halbe Stelle BAT IIa) zum 1. März 2006 zu besetzen. Die Stellen stehen zunächst für eine Laufzeit von zwei Jahren zur Verfügung (mit Option auf Verlängerung).
Kernziel des interdisziplinären Projekts Selbstbewusstsein ist es, eine Theorie zu entwickeln, die es erlaubt, menschliches Selbstbewusstsein adäquat zu beschreiben. Kernziel des Projekts Wissen und Können ist es, eine neue Theorie des Könnens zu entwickeln, die es erlaubt, menschliche Fertigkeiten als wissensbasiert zu charakterisieren, indem die Repräsentationsstrukturen, die dem Können zu Grunde liegen genau analysiert werden: Vorbegriffliche und begriffsbasierte Fertigkeiten sollen dabei von explizit propositional strukturiertem Wissen unterschieden werden.
Profil der Postdoc-Stelle: Die Bewerberin oder der Bewerber der Postdoktorandenstelle sollte eine Promotion im Fach Philosophie sowie idealerweise einen Abschluss in Psychologie, Medizin oder Hirnforschung haben. Zumindest sind gründliche Kenntnisse in einem dieser Gebiete eine wichtige Voraussetzung. Zu den Aufgaben dieser Stelle gehört die Mitgestaltung der inhaltlichen Leitung beider Projekte. Je nach Qualifikation kann eines der Projekte zum Schwerpunkt gewählt werden. Die Idealbesetzung ist in der Lage bei beiden Projekten die Dissertationsbetreuung mitzugestalten. Dazu sind sehr gründliche Kenntnisse in zwei der drei genannten philosophischen Disziplinen erforderlich: Philosophie des Geistes, Erkenntnistheorie, Sprachphilosophie.
Profil der Doktorandenstelle zum Bereich Wissen und Können: Stelle 1: Eine Stelle kann von einer Person eingenommen werden, die ihre Dissertation stärker interdisziplinär ausrichten will und sich mit der Philosophie der Fähigkeiten, Dispositionen und der Begriffsbildung aus der Sicht von Philosophie, Psychologie und Neurowissenschaft beschäftigt.
Profil der Doktorandenstelle zum Bereich Selbstbewusstsein: Stelle 2: Für die zweite Stelle ist eine Dissertation vorgesehen, die ebenfalls eher interdisziplinär ausgerichtet sein sollte. Dabei steht das Thema der sozialen Dimension menschlichen Selbstbewusstseins im Vordergrund. Entsprechend sollte die Kandidatin bzw. der Kandidat über gute Kenntnisse der Psychologie und/oder Hirnforschung verfügen.
Von den Bewerberinnen und Bewerbern für die Postdoc-Stelle wird eine herausragende Promotion im Fach Philosophie, für die Promotionsstellen wird ein sehr guter Magister- oder Staatsexamensabschluss im Fach Philosophie erwartet. Zusätzlich sind für eine der beiden Stellen gründliche Kenntnisse in mindestens einem der folgenden Bereiche erforderlich: kognitive Psychologie, Verhaltensbiologie, künstliche Intelligenz oder Hirnforschung. Eine regelmäßige Präsenz an der Universität Tübingen ist Voraussetzung für die Übernahme der Stelle.
Bewerbungen mit den üblichen Unterlagen (Lebenslauf, Kopien der Zeugnisse und Urkunden, Liste der Publikationen, der Vorträge, der Konferenzteilnahmen und ggf. der Lehrveranstaltungen, aber ohne Einsendung von Schriften) sind als Ausdruck und auch als e-Mail-Unterlagen bis zum 19. Januar 2006 zu senden an: Prof. Dr. Albert Newen, Philosophisches Seminar, Universität Tübingen, Bursagasse 1, 72070 Tübingen, Rückfragen bitte richten an: newen@uni-tuebingen.de

Doctorate Research Fellow

Deadline: 20.10.05

Profile of candidates: We are looking for original thinkers who are interested in exploring and examining the contemporary space as determined by advanced technology, modern-day economics (and its assumptions) and society at large, with respect to questions of essential human values, such as justice, truth, courage and beauty, and social values such as social justice, freedom, representation and ownership. We are interested in both theoretical and conceptual investigation with a global reach, as well as practical research with attention to and focus on Israeli society and the challenges it is now facing. Possible research projects: • The concepts of quantification ("meaningful" equals "quantifiable") and efficiency as borrowed from science and technology by society at large and incorporated into its world-view. • Statistics as a socio-political tool: critical examination and limitations. • Conceptual analysis: privatization, competition and globalization. Implications for the Israeli context. • Decision making and the structure and logic of organizations. Rethinking new approaches to problem solving. • Models of "rationality" from business, economics, law: critical examination and limitations. • The mechanization of reason and rationality? A real threat? The distinction between a formal rule or procedure and a judgment. • The modeling of various social interactions on the idea of a transaction between service-providers and clients. • Ethics and aesthetics within the framework of corporate culture. • Technology, information and the idea of knowledge. • The limits of the market: (real) value and (formal) price. • Division of labor between the sexes. Abolished? Needs to be addressed? Are women's needs properly served in a society without a division of labor? • Market economy and liberal democracy. A possible conflict? • The distinction between private and public goods and resources. • The modern concept of “progress”. The pace of “progress” and its price. • The horizon of time ahead planned and thought out, in the context of business, economics and society at large. Is our "horizon" too limited and short-term? • Self-interest and common interest. The question of values and interests. A real conflict? • Philanthropy in the Israeli context: conceptual framework and concrete examination. A philanthropy index. • Allocation of Israeli capital: priorities, realities. • R&D in Israel; defense R&D. Type of funding: Each fellow will receive $10,000 a year in two installments, one per semester. The continuation of funding will depend on the fellow’s satisfactory progress. Requirements: The fellow will be required to produce research during the academic year in a subject chosen by the fellow and the school. The research will be conducted under the guidance of the School, in cooperation with the fellow’s doctoral supervisor. The research subject can be part of the fellow’s dissertation. We will also accept related subjects, on condition that the researcher dedicates sufficient time to the research within the School. The fellow will be provided with work/study space and will be required to take an active part in the School’s weekly seminars. Duration of fellowship: 1 year, with a possibility of extension to a second year. Eligibility: The applicants must be research students who have been accepted by a PhD program of an accredited university in Israel or abroad.

Viewed in this light, the Institute's curriculum foster's the study of Woman's comtribution to Western Spirituality by introducing such celebrated themes as: the role of the Feminine in religious experience, the concept of the "Eternal Feminine" in Western culture, The Mother Archetype, as well as the relation of the Feminine to the Church and the Mystical Body of Christ. Students also have the opportunity to study the history of the major female mystic writer's and figures such as: St. Terea of Avilla, Hildegard of Bingen, Catherine of Siena, Julian of Norwich, Angela of Foligno, Catherine of Genoa,and Therese of Lisieux. You must have coursework in the above area to be considered for employment. Please send your complete dossier file and 3 letters of recommendation to: Dr. Robert A.

Fellowship

Deadline: N.S.

Special Announcement for Philos-l from the Director, Prof Tim Crane. UNIVERSITY OF LONDON INSTITUTE OF PHILOSOPHY The University of London has decided to establish an Institute of Philosophy within its School of Advanced Study (http://www.sas.ac.uk), starting in the academic year 2005-6. The Institute, which has been made possible by a substantial private donation and matching funds from the University, will replace the current Philosophy Programme (see http://www.sas.ac.uk/Philosophy). Since it was founded in 1995, the Philosophy Programme has supported and hosted over 100 conferences and other events and has brought 24 philosophers to London as visiting fellows of the Programme. The Institute will continue to carry out the ambition of the Programme to make high quality philosophy of all kinds available to everyone across the UK, but on a larger scale than was available to the Programme. In particular, from 2006 the Institute will offer funded visiting fellowships to philosophers at all levels from the UK and overseas, and new postdoctoral fellowships. The Institute will conceive of philosophy in the broadest way, and will not promote one form or area of philosophy above others.

Deadline: 20th May 2005

Under the auspices of the initiative „Key Topics in the Humanities“ the project „Knowing-that and knowing-how. Cognitive Abilities of Biological and Artificial Systems” has been selected for support by the VolkswagenStiftung. One subproject will be carried out at the Philosophy Department of Tübingen University under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Albert Newen. The project aims for a new theory of knowledge and abilities based on a careful analysis of different representational structures. The methodology will be interdisciplinary, combining philosophical, psychological and neurobiological approaches. For this project we invite applications for either one Postdoctoral position (salary: BAT IIa) or two Doctoral positions (salary: each one half of BAT IIa), starting on the 1st of July 2005. These posts are available for a fixed term of two years (with an optional extension of 10 months). Profile of the Postdoc position: Applicants should hold a Ph.D in Philosophy and, ideally, a degree in Psychology, Medicine or Neuroscience. Substantial expertise in at least one of these areas is required. You will participate in the supervision of the whole project and work with Doctoral students of all the areas covered, including theories of representation, logical formalization of conceptual knowledge, theories of concepts, as well as psychological and neuroscientific research on spatial cognition. Profile of the Doctoral positions: Post 1: One position can be mainly focussed on philosophical issues, e.g. on the philosophy of concepts or on epistemological issues concerning the topic of knowledge and ability. Post 2: The other position should be of a more interdisciplinary character, approaching the topic of knowledge and ability from a psychological or neuroscientific perspective. For both posts we expect applicants with an excellent M.A. or Staatsexamen degree in Philosophy. One of the posts requires substantial expertise in one of the following areas: Cognitive Psychology, Behavioral Biology, Artificial Intelligence or Neuroscience. You will be part of a group of junior researchers working on the Philosophy of Cognition under the supervision of Prof. Newen. Therefore, your regular presence at Tübingen University will be required.

Leuven, Belgium

Vacancies research project philosophy

Deadline: May 15th

Funds are available now at the Catholic University of Leuven for research in the philosophy of chemistry. The planned research consists of two parts, which are expected to support one another. 1. The first part focuses on the notion of “(pure) chemical substance”, with a historical component (Ostwald, Wald, van der Waals) and a contemporary component (definition of pure substance in chemical thermodynamics and in other fields). This part of the research is to be connected to discussions in general philosophy of science on natural kinds, natural laws, and intertheoretic relations such as reduction and supervenience. 2. The second part deals with the application of “anomalous monism” (as a metaphysical model or working hypothesis) to the relation between physics and chemistry, in particular the relation between chemical thermodynamics and statistical mechanics and the relation between molecular chemistry and quantum mechanics; including the status of chemical and physical substances, kinds, laws, and events and, where relevant, their ceteris paribus, initial, and boundary conditions. This part of the research is to be connected to discussions in the philosophy of mind and analytic metaphysics on reduction, supervenience, emergence, and anomalous monism. For the general background of the research envisioned see J. van Brakel, Philosophy of Chemistry: Between the Manifest and the Scientific Image, Leuven University Press (2000), in particular chapters 2, 3, 7, and 8. The position of the candidate(s) will be flexible, with the following possibilities: 1. Grant(s) for Ph.D.-students, initially for one year, renewable up to a maximum of three years if progress is evaluated positively. 2. Grant(s) for a post-doctoral fellow for one year. In exceptional cases this grant can be renewed for a second year. 3. A senior research fellow or visiting professor for a period of up to six months. Any successful candidate is expected to have background in both natural sciences (preferably chemistry) and philosophy (preferably philosophy of science or philosophy of mind for the second part of the project). The Institute of Philosophy is rather large: more than 30 tenured professors, more than 100 Ph.D.’s, in the international programme (BA, MA, MPhil, PhD) students from around 50 nationalities. However, the section that covers philosophy of science and analytic philosophy is rather small. Hence candidates for the vacancies are expected to be intellectually mature and be able to work independently. For details concerning the rather strict requirements to be admitted to the doctoral programme of the Institute of Philosophy in Leuven and other relevant information concerning the university and the city of Leuven see http://www.hiw.kuleuven.ac.be/eng/ and links given there. If you are interested in coming to Leuven for some time to work on the philosophy of chemistry please contact (before May 15, 2005) by e-mail or letter (no faxes): Prof. J. van Brakel Jaap.vanBrakel@hiw.kuleuven.ac.be H.I.W. - K.U. Leuven Kardinaal Mercierplein 2 3000 Leuven (Belgium) Please attach a brief CV to your message and describe your interest in the philosophy of chemistry and your possible contribution to the research project. If you are interested in a grant for a Ph.D. position you should first check the requirements (see webpage cited above). In exceptional cases students from non-EC countries are eligible for a pre-doctoral grant to first obtain an M.Phil. at the University of Leuven.

It is open to early stage researchers in history and related disciplines researching on any period of Europe’s history, from its classical origins to the present day. They should normally be undertaking a doctoral degree, or actually engaged in research without being registered for a doctorate. The ED is a consortium of departments of history and related disciplines in ten leading academic institutions in different European countries. Coordinated by the Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia (Italy), the network partners are: Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia (Italy); National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece); Universität Bielefeld (Germany); Slovak Academy of Sciences (Slovakia); Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Netherlands); Instituto de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal); University College London (United Kingdom); Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris (France); Universidad Pablo de Olavide de Sevilla (Spain); Södertörns högskola (Sweden) The ED is directed towards early stage researchers who can benefit from a period of mobility in the doctoral school of one of the consortium universities in another country. Each researcher participates in the regular postgraduate training and research seminars of the host university, where he/she is guided by a expert supervisor. At the beginning of the year, all researchers who have been awarded a fellowship take part in an introductory seminar, together with academics from each of the ED participant institutions; at the end of the academic year, a second seminar is held, in which the ED fellows present the results of their research during their period of mobility and assess its significance in terms of the overall trajectory of their research and training.

PhD bursary

Deadline: 20.04.05

The Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at the London School of Economics offers a 3-year AHRB-funded Studentship for the project "Contingency and Dissent in Science" starting in the academic year 2005/06. It is expected that the PhD research of the student and the research for the project dovetail. A description of the project is below. The student will work on some aspects of contingency and/ or dissent in one of the scientific areas under study in the project (e.g. climate change, RCTs, dissent over high temperature superconductors). The project is directed by Nancy Cartwright and Stephan Hartmann, with Naomi Oreskes from the University of California at San Diego, and is housed by the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science. Interested students are invited to send a letter of interest, a Curriculum Vitae, a project outline of 500 words and two letters of recommendation by 20 April 2005 to Prof. Nancy Cartwright, Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science, London School of Economics, Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE, U.K. or by email (word or pdf file) to S.Hartmann@lse.ac.uk. Contingency and Dissent in Science Today society is scrambling to figure out how to manage the uses and abuses of science to minimize harm and maximize public benefit. But we face dramatically opposed attitudes to science. On one hand, it is presumed that the correctness of what science teaches does not come into question. On the other, there is widespread dissent even within the scientific community about results, methods and consequences. This project on contingency and dissent in science aims to develop tools for the scrutiny of the correctness of methods and results in the natural and human sciences based on detailed case studies.

postdoc research fellowship

Deadline: ASAP

Research opportunity:=20 The postdoc will do research on two closely related projects, one on the modeling and conceptual analysis of, the other on the design of, socio-technical systems. Socio-technical systems are large-scale, complex systems, conceived as engineering systems, with essential hardware elements, but depending for their proper functioning equally essentially on the actions of intentional agents and the presence of social elements such as institutional arrangements, rules, etc. The research project focuses on the implications of the increasing importance of socio-technical systems for engineering design. It addresses questions as to what extent and in what way and for what design purposes intentional and social elements must be incorporated into the system, and how success criteria for such systems must be defined. The projects are part of the multi-disciplinary research program Next Generation Infrastructures, in which several universities, government agencies and business firms collaborate. Detailed descriptions of the two research projects can be found at the following URLs of the NGI website: http://www.nginfra.nl/index.php?id=3D61 http://www.nginfra.nl/index.php?id=3D92 Candidates with a background in science and/or engineering who have a PhD degree in a relevant engineering science, in philosophy, or in a relevant social science are invited to apply.

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands

Two PhD positions in the field of the History of Modern Philosophy

Deadline: 18 October 2004

The Faculty of Philosophy of the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam hosts the NWO-project ‘The Quest of the System in the Transcendental Philosophy of Immanuel Kant’. This research project aims to describe the problem of the system of reason (System der Vernunft) in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant, with a focus on his theoretical philosophy and his metaphysics of nature. In his published works Kant has not developed this system in its full completeness. Mainly in his last projected work, the posthumous published Opus postumum are given important instigations for this system. This project aims to get a better understanding of Kant’s idea of the system of reason by 1) an analysis of his mainly critical works published since 1781, by 2) a close examination of the relation between these works and the Opus postumum and by 3) an investigation of the influences by contemporary philosophers on Kant’s late philosophy. Within this research project two PhD positions are vacant: PhD position 1: The “Selbstsetzungslehre” in the Opus postumum. According to this theory the “I” has to posit itself to get knowledge of itself. This theory plays an important role in Kant’s Opus postumum. In addition to the systematic importance of this theory possible influences on Kant’s theory of selfpositing by some contemporary philosophers (J.G. Fichte, J.S. Beck, F.W.J. Schelling) are investigated too. PhD position 2: The influence of Karl Leonhard Reinhold on Kant’s late concept of a system of reason. Reinhold is the first philosopher who blamed the critical philosophy for not having offered the by Kant projected system of reason. His Versuch einer neuen Theorie des menschlichen Vorstellungsvermögens (1789) is an attempt to supply this system by formulating the premise of the critical philosophy and to deduce from here its in itself proper results. For a historical adequate evaluation of Kant’s idea of his system of reason the influence of Reinhold on Kant has to be investigated. N.b.: Within this research project other PhD projects are possible. Therefore you can also apply for these functions with your own more thoroughly formulated research proposal as far as it is linked to the general aim of the research project (max. 1.500 words). Job requirements MA in Philosophy or an other relevant MA. Thorough knowledge of the theoretical philosophy of Immanuel Kant and German Idealism in general will be considered as an advantage. Good knowledge of German language is required. Your PhD-thesis has to be written in English or German. Duties Your main task is to write a doctoral thesis on the research topic. You contribute to the collective research project and participate in a PhD program. Additional points The contract of employment covers a period of one year. After a positive judgment the contract will be renewed for 3 years. You are obliged to complete your doctoral thesis by the end of the fourth year. In a full-time position, you are entitled to a minimum of 43 days paid leave per annum. From candidates is expected to endorse the special character of the Faculty of Philosophy and the Vrije Universiteit. Salary In accordance with the salary regulations for academic personnel, the gross monthly salary will be € 1.702,- in the first year, rising to € 2.394,- in the fourth year, for a full-time position. Information Instructions regarding the research proposal as well as a description of the project can be requested from dr. Ernst-Otto Onnasch (conductor of the research project), tel. +31 (0)20-4446620 (VU) or +31 (0)20 6254710 (home), e-mail onnasch@ph.vu.nl.

16.6.104 (560)

Freie Universität, Berlin

Werkverträge / Studentische Hilfskräfte: Philosophische Implikationen von Wortfeldanalysen

Deadline: 21.06.2004

Werkverträge für Studierende/AbsolventInnen der Romanistik / Rechtswissenschaft / Sozialwissenschaften / Geschichtswissenschaft zu vergeben Im DFG-Projekt "Der Rechtsstaat in Deutschland und Spanien? Politisierung des Rechts und Entpolitisierung der Politik" sind drei Werkaufträge für die Erstellung von Literaturstudien (1) an kastilische und/oder deutsche MuttersprachlerInnen zu vergeben, die Interesse haben, ihre eigenen wissenschaftlichen Ideen in das Projekt einzubringen: I. Untersuchungen zu den Wortfeldern (2) "Recht / rechts / richtig / Gerechtigkeit / Gesetz --- derecho / derecha / justo / justicia / ley" Der erste Werkauftrag besteht aus einem Rechercheauftrag nach Untersuchungen zu den oben genannten Wortfeldern. Die Untersuchungen sollen unter dem Gesichtspunkt der Fragestellung des hiesigen Projekts, d.h. der Entgegensetzung von "Recht" und "Gesetz" im Konzept des deutschen und spanischen Rechtsstaats, zusammengefaßt werden. Soweit keine einschlägigen Untersuchungen vorliegen, sollen die Ähnlichkeiten und Entgegensetzungen der verschiedenen Begriffe für beide Sprachen anhand der einschlägigen allgemeinsprachlichen Wörterbücher und der Fachwörterbücher der Philosophie sowie der Rechts-, Sozial- und Geisteswissenschaften analysiert werden. Dabei anfallende Hinweise zu einer abweichenden Verwendung und Bedeutung der entsprechenden englischen und französischen Begriffe berücksichtigen Sie in der zu schreibenden Studie bitte ebenfalls. "Wortfeld-Analyen" ist hier nicht im engen Sinne zu verstehen; genauso können diskursanalytische (M. Foucault u.a.) und/oder andere der/dem jeweiligen BearbeiterIn im vorliegenden Projektzusammenhang geeignet erscheinende Methoden zur Anwendung kommen bzw. Untersuchungen auf entsprechender methodischer Grundlage ausgewertet werden. Der Werkauftrag ist für AbsolventInnen und fortgeschrittene Studierende der Romanistik und Germanistik mit zusätzlichem Interessenschwerpunkt im Bereich philosophischer und/oder juristischer Fragestellungen geeignet. Alt-philologische Kenntnisse sind von Vorteil. Die Studie sollte einen Umfang von 30 - 70 Seiten haben und in enger Abstimmung mit der Projektarbeitsgruppe konzipiert und angefertigt werden. Die Studie sollte spätestens am 31.11.2004 abgeliefert werden. II. juridificación / judicialización / juridización Dieser Werkauftrag beinhaltet die Aufgabe, einen Überblick über die in den spanischen Rechts- und Sozialwissenschaften zu den o.g. Begriffen geführten Diskussionen zu geben. Die Diskussionen sollen unter folgenden Gesichtspunkten ausgewertet werden: 1. Lassen sich die unterschiedlichen Begriffe unterschiedlichen theoretischen Ansätzen (unterschiedlichen Schulen) zuordnen? Oder werden sie mehr oder weniger parallel/synonym verwandt? 2. Wird das / werden die mit den fraglichen Begriffen bezeichneten Phänomen(e) explizit im Kontext des Begriffs des "Estado de Derecho" erörtert? 3. Gibt es in der spanischen Diskussion Bezugnahmen auf die in der BRD zum Begriff der Verrechtlichung geführten Diskussionen? 4. Was sind die thematischen und methodischen Schwerpunkte der spanischen Diskussion? Als (vorbereitenden) Bestandteil der Studie erstellen Sie bitte ein Verzeichnis der existierenden gedruckten und elektronischen Bibliographien zur spanischen Rechtswissenschaft und der sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung zum spanischen Recht sowie anderen einschlägigen Quellen (internet-Portale; deutsche Institutionen/Bibliotheken mit entsprechendem Forschungs-/Sammlungsschwerpunkt etc.). Die Quellen/Einrichtungen sind hinsichtlich der thematischen Schwerpunkte, Benutzungsmodalitäten, Funktionalität/Ergonomie kurz zu charakterisieren. Der Werkauftrag ist für AbsolventInnen und fortgeschrittene Studierende der Rechtswissenschaft mit zusätzlichem sozialwissenschaftlichen Interessenschwerpunkt oder der Sozialwissenschaften mit zusätzlichem juristischen Interessenschwerpunkt geeignet. Kastilische MuttersprachlerInnen sollten über Grundkenntnisse der deutschen Sprache verfügen; deutsche MuttersprachlerInnen müssen sehr gute kastilische Sprachkenntnisse haben. Die Studie sollte einen Umfang von 30 - 70 Seiten haben und in enger Abstimmung mit der Projektarbeitsgruppe konzipiert und angefertigt werden. Die Studie ist spätestens am 15.09.2004 abzuliefern. III. Stand der Debatte zum "deutschen Sonderweg" (3) in der Geschichtswissenschaft Die dritte Studie soll den Stand der vor allem in der deutschen und englisch-sprachigen Geschichtswissenschaft geführten Debatte über die These vom "deutschen Sonderweg" (im Gegensatz zur französischen und englischen "Norm") zusammenfassen; einschlägige kastilische Literatur, die in diesem Zusammenhang erwähnt wird, verzeichnen Sie bitte ebenfalls. Die Literatur soll dabei vor allem unter folgenden Gesichtspunkten ausgewertet werden: 1. Welche theoretischen Argumente werden Für und Wider das Sonderwegs-Konzept vorgebracht? 2. Welche empirischen Argumente werden Für und Wider die These vom "deutschen Sonderweg" vorgebracht? 3. Wie wird erklärt, daß der Faschismus ausgerechnet in Deutschland, Spanien und Italien an die Macht kam? Wird die These vom "deutschen Sonderweg" in Beziehung gesetzt zur Existenz eines "spanischen" und evtl. auch "italienischen Sonderwegs"? In thematischer Hinsicht ist die Auswertung zu konzentrieren auf die Frage der wirtschaftlichen "Fortschrittlichkeit" bzw. "Rückschrittlichkeit" der in den Vergleich einbezogenen Länder und wie diese "wirtschaftliche Basis" in Beziehung gesetzt wird zum "geistigen Überbau" (politische [Ideen]geschichte: Geschichte des Liberalismus; "Ideen von 1789" vs. "Ideen von 1914"; Geschichte der Rechtssysteme und der Rechtstheorie). Anfallende rechtsgeschichtliche Spezialliteratur sollte verzeichnet, muß aber nicht ausgewertet werden, da deren Auswertung anderweitig erfolgt. Der Werkauftrag ist für AbsolventInnen und fortgeschrittene Studierende der Geschichtswissenschaft mit zusätzlichem sozialwissenschaftlichen Interessenschwerpunkt geeignet. Die Studie sollte einen Umfang von 30 - 70 Seiten haben und in enger Abstimmung mit der Projektarbeitsgruppe konzipiert und angefertigt werden. Die Studie sollte spätestens am 31.11.2004 abgeliefert werden. Hinweise zu allen drei Werkaufträge: Die BearbeiterInnen der drei Aufträge sollen zudem an der Erstellung eines Konzeptes für eine Literaturdatenbank für das Projekt mitwirken und ihre Ergebnisse in diese Datenbank einspeisen. Wichtige recherchierte Literatur ist außerdem in Papierform (Fotokopien) für das Projekt zu archivieren. Nach erfolgreicher Erledigung der Werkaufträge besteht für Studierende die Möglichkeit, sich Ende 2004 als Studentische Hilfskräfte (2 Stellen à 10 Stunden/Woche; oder 1 Stelle + weitere Werkaufträge) in dem Projekt zu bewerben. Die Studien I und II können in deutscher oder kastilischer Sprache abgeliefert werden; ihnen ist eine dreiseitige Zusammenfassung in der jeweils anderen Sprache beizufügen; Studie III sollte in deutscher Sprache abgeliefert werden (eine kastilische Zusammenfassung ist nicht notwendig). Studierende, die an der späteren Einstellung als studentische Hilfskraft interessiert sind, sollen sich in beiden Sprachen schriftlich und mündlich problemlos ausdrücken können; es wird allerdings die Möglichkeit bestehen, außerhalb der Arbeitszeit einen aus Projektmitteln finanzierten Prefektionierungs-Sprachkurs zu besuchen. Die Studentischen Hilfskräfte müssen ab Einstellung an einer Berliner Hochschule studieren. Für eine Zusammenarbeit zum gegenseitigen Nutzen wäre es von Vorteil, falls die späteren Studentischen Hilfskräfte beabsichtigen, ihre Studienabschlußarbeit oder eine spätere Promotion in einem der für das Projekt relevanten Themenbereiche (kontrastive Linguistik Kastilisch - Deutsch; deutsche und spanische Rechtsgeschichte des 19. und 20. Jahrhundert; Phänomene politisch motivierter Gewalt) zu schreiben. Die Ergebnisse der Werkaufträge können von den BearbeiterInnen in einem solchen Rahmen oder für eigene Veröffentlichungen (daneben, daß sie dem Projekt zu Verfügung gestellt werden) verwertet werden ("doppeltes copy right"). Ein Text, der die Fragestellung und die thematischen Schwerpunkte des Projektes beschreibt, kann unter der folgenden e-mail-Adresse angefordert werden: Detlef.Georgia@gmx.de. Insbesondere bei BewerberInnen, die später als Studentische Hilfskräfte beschäftigt werden möchten, sollte in der Bewerbung deutlich werden, wie sie ihre eigenen wissenschaftlichen Interessen im Kontext des Projektes verorten. Für alle drei Werkverträge zusammen stehen maximal 4.500 Euro zur Verfügung. Daß die Studien I und III später als die Studie II abzuliefern sind, bedeutet nicht, daß jene notwendigerweise umfangreicher als letztere ausfallen müssen. Bitte senden Sie Ihre Bewerbungen bis zum 21. Juni (Posteingang) mit den üblichen Unterlagen und einer zwei- bis dreiseitigen Skizze zum beabsichtigten Vorgehen, sowie einer Honorarvorstellung, die dem gegeben Finanzrahmen und dem erwarteten Arbeitsaufwand entspricht, ein: Freie Universität Berlin, FB Politik- und Sozialwissenschaften, Prof. Dr. Ulrich K. Preuß, Ihnestr. 22, 14195 Berlin Für Nachfragen stehen wir Ihnen gern zur Verfügung. Die Auftragsvergabe erfolgt spätestens am 05.07.2004. Mindestens zwei der Werkaufträge sollen an Bewerberinnen vergeben werden; bei gleicher Qualifikation werden Bewerberinnen vorgezogen. (1) Mangels einer einfachen Übersetzungsmöglichkeit haben wir in der kastilischen Fassung der Ausschreibung den deutschen Begriff "Literaturstudie" wie folgt erläutert: "Literaturstudie" ist ein (ausformulierter) Bericht über die zu einem bestimmten Thema bereits existierende Literatur; er ähnelt damit einer Sammelrezension, umfaßt aber nicht nur Neuerscheinungen, sondern auch ältere Literatur und ist folglich umfangreicher als eine Sammelrezension. - Im Unterschied zu einer eigenen wissenschaftlichen Untersuchung faßt eine Literaturstudie nur den bereits vorhanden Forschungsstand und dessen Entstehung / Vorgeschichte zusammen; diese ist also weniger ambitioniert als jene. (2) In der kastilischen Fassung der Ausschreibung haben wir ?Wortfeld? mit "campo conceptual" übersetzt und auf folgende englischen und französischen Übersetzungsmöglichkeiten für den deutschen Begriff "Wortfeld" hingewiesen - englisch: lexical field, semantic field, word field, conceptual field; französisch: champ conceptuel, champ linguistique, lexical champ, champ sémantique. (3) Den Begriff "Sonderweg" haben wir in der kastilischen Fassung der Ausschreibung wie folgt erläutert: "Sonderweg" bezeichnet den Umstand, daß die Geschichte eines Landes oder einiger Länder einen Verlauf genommen hat, der von der als üblich angesehenen Entwicklung aller anderen Länder (oder der meisten anderen) abweicht. FÜR DIE ERSTELLUNG VON AUSHÄNGEN ETC. KANN EINE PDF-DATEI UNTER O.G. E-MAIL-ADRESSE ANGEFORDERT WERDEN.

zwei Promotionsstellen

Deadline: 15.10.2003

Am Philosophischen Seminar der Universit?t Bonn wird mit Mitteln der VolkswagenStiftung unter Leitung von Priv-Doz. Dr. Albert Newen eine wissenschaftliche Nachwuchsgruppe zum Thema ?Selbstbewusstsein und Begriffsbildung beim Menschen? eingerichtet.
In diesem Rahmen sind zwei Promotionsstellen (jeweils halbe Stellen BAT IIa) zum 1. Januar 2004 zu besetzen. Die Stellen stehen zun?chst f?r eine Laufzeit von zwei Jahren zur Verf?gung (mit Option auf Verl?ngerung bis zum 31.8.2005).
Kernziel des Projekts ist es, eine Theorie zu entwickeln, die es erlaubt, menschliches Selbstbewusstsein (als das bewusste Erleben der eigenen mentalen Zust?nde) und die damit einhergehenden Begriffsbildungen eines Subjekts (z. B. der Ich-Begriff, der Personenbegriff, der Begriff des eigenen Wissens) ad?quat zu beschreiben. Dabei sollen die neuesten Ergebnisse der empirischen Kognitionswissenschaften, insbesondere in Hirnforschung, Entwicklungspsychologie und Linguistik, ausf?hrlich ber?cksichtigt werden. Dar?ber hinaus sollen in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Hirnforscher Priv.-Doz. Dr. Kai Vogeley neue Experimente zur Bestimmung der neuronalen Grundlagen menschlichen Selbstbewusstseins entworfen und durchgef?hrt werden.
Eine Promotionsstelle soll sich inhaltlich mehr aus der Sicht der Naturphilosophie und Wissenschaftstheorie mit dem Projekt befassen, w?hrend die andere sich thematisch eher an den Fragestellungen der Philosophie des Geistes und der Sprachphilosophie orientieren soll.
Von den Bewerberinnen und Bewerbern wird ein sehr guter Magister- oder Staatsexamensabschluss im Fach Philosophie erwartet. Zus?tzlich sind gr?ndliche Kenntnisse in mindestens einem der folgenden Bereiche erforderlich: kognitive Psychologie, Verhaltensbiologie, k?nstlichen Intelligenz oder Hirnforschung.

28.3.103 (512)

Eindhoven University of Technology (Eindhoven), The Netherlands

Post-doctoral position in the Philosophy of Technology / Epistemology / Logic.

Deadline: 01.05.2003

The Section of Philosophy and Ethics of Technology at Eindhoven University of Technology invites applications for the above post (3 years) with effect from 1 September 2003.

Most theories of knowledge are concerned with descriptive knowledge. Functional knowledge, however, is very different from this type of knowledge. This can be seen through the rich normative context which functional knowledge creates. The ascription of a proper function to an artifact, for instance, specifies what the artifact ought to do. Such a function ascription allows for a normative evaluation in terms of functioning well or badly. In addition, the knowledge of an artifact’s function is related in a non-trivial way with its proper use. In order to realize its proper function, it ought to be used in certain ways. Finally, the ascription of a function to an artifact allows for normative statements that compare artifacts in terms of better or worse (“this disk is better than that one”).

The successful candidate will be expected to explore and conceptualize the normative aspects of functional knowledge and their relations. In particular, (s)he will investigate the normativity of functional knowledge by exploring ways in which to formalize its normative aspects. Formalization is, in this context, not an aim in itself. Rather, it is a method with which to refine our notion of normativity in functional knowledge, and which is to be used in such a way as to achieve a mutually productive relation between epistemological and logical research. As the project is primarily concerned with conceptual analysis, the development of a semantics for function ascriptions will be a necessity. We see Castañeda’s preparatory analysis of ought-statements as an example of the way in which this may be achieved.

The research project described above is part of the The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) funded research programme Norms in Knowledge of the Section of Philosophy and Ethics of Technology at Eindhoven University of Technology. The research programme is carried out in close co-operation with other Dutch and foreign universities. The successful candidate for this position, for instance, will conduct research under the supervision of Professor Sven Ove Hansson for one semester at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (Sweden). In addition (s)he may work together with Professor Wiebe van der Hoek of The University of Liverpool (UK).

The salary associated with this position initially is between € 2.103 and € 3.885 per month, depending on the successful candidate’s background. Benefits are good. A knowledge of Dutch is (initially) not required for this position.

Applicants are asked to send a CV, a list of relevant publications, and the names and contact details of (at least) two referees together with a covering letter (in which the vacancy code V39.333 is stated) to The Managing Director, ir. M. J. M. Verbruggen, Department of Technology Management, Eindhoven University of Technology, TEMA 1.32, PO Box 513, 5600 MB Eindhoven, The Netherlands – Fax: +31 (0) 40 247 5712.

Eindhoven University of Technology (Eindhoven), The Netherlands

Ph.D. Position in the Philosophy of Technology / Epistemology.

Deadline: 15.05.2003

The Section of Philosophy and Ethics of Technology at Eindhoven University of Technology invites applications for the above post (4 years) with effect from 1 September 2003.

Prescriptive knowledge is widespread. Many academic disciplines from history to physics, for example, have methodological rules and recommendations which specify how things ought to be done, or what constitutes good academic practice. In medicine, protocols with respect to patient care specify what a doctor has to do in order to treat patients in the most effective way. Or, in law, there are regulations and prescriptions intended to increase traffic safety, or to reduce risks in the nuclear industry. The notion of technological knowledge contains a number of elements that embody standards for both actions and artifacts. These include: instructions and guidelines for making and using artifacts, rules of thumb (for modeling), recommendations (for recycling), technical standards for products and processes, good practices in the profession, and standards of good design (including the ‘normal’ configuration of devices).

From an epistemological point of view, prescriptive knowledge is largely a terra incognita. The successful candidate will be expected to explore this topic in the context of artifacts, and this by both developing a taxonomy of prescriptive knowledge and conceptualizing the normativity involved in such knowledge.

The research project described above is part of The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) funded research programme Norms in Knowledge of the Section of Philosophy and Ethics of Technology at Eindhoven University of Technology which is aimed at bringing out the normative elements in knowledge by analyzing and conceptualizing the normative dimension of prescriptive and functional knowledge. The research programme is carried out in close co-operation with other Dutch and foreign universities. The successful candidate for this position, for instance, will conduct research under the supervision of Professor Robert Audi for one semester at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (USA).

The Ph.D. thesis can be written in English, and a knowledge of Dutch is (initially) not required for this position.

The salary associated with this position initially is € 1.477 per month, and increases to € 2.110 per month. Benefits (including travel expenses and a free personal computer or laptop for the duration of the contract) are good.

Applicants are asked to send a CV, the names and contact details of (at least) two referees, and a sample of their work together with a covering letter (in which the vacancy code V39.332 is stated) to The Managing Director, ir. M. J. M. Verbruggen, Department of Technology Management, Eindhoven University of Technology, TEMA 1.32, PO Box 513, 5600 MB Eindhoven, The Netherlands – Fax: +31 (0) 40 247 5712.

It has particular strength in social philosophy (including political philosophy, philosophy of law and philosophy of the social sciences) and modern European philosophy. Further information is available from web: http://www.uea.ac.uk. Candidates must have been accepted by the Philosophy Graduate Selection Committee for the M.A. in Social Philosophy from September 2001 onwards. In selecting the successful candidate, we will consider the CV and references sent with the application for the M.A. Therefore an informal letter of application for the studentship plus a recent piece of philosophical writing of not more than 4,000 words (e.g., an undergraduate essay) will be sufficient. These must have reached the following address by 30 June 2001: Fitzmaurice Studentship Selection Committee, FAO Dr Timothy O'Hagan, University of East Anglia, School of Economic and Social Studies, Norwich NR4 7TJ, England.

Zwei Promotionsstipendien BAT IIa/2

Deadline: 31.5.01

Im Rahmen eines DFG-Projekts zur Geschichte des Naturgesetzbegriffs sind zum 1.10.01 zwei Promotionsstipendien BAT IIa/2 für zwei Jahre (mit Verlängerungsmöglichkeit um ein weiteres Jahr) zu vergeben.
1. Der Naturgesetzbegriff in der mathematischen Astronomie des 15. und frühen 16. Jahrhunderts (Rheticus, Clavius, Maestlin, Amico, Fracastoro) Im Zuge einer realistischen Deutung astronomischer Beschreibungsansätze wurden diese in wachsendem Maße als Ausdruck von Naturgesetzen aufgefasst. Rekonstruiert werden soll die zumehmende Verschränkung von Astronomie und Physik im genannten Zeitraum, die sich vor allem in unterschiedlichen Ansätzen einer Verknüpfung Ptolemäischer Modelle mit der Aristotelischen Physik ausdrückt.
2. Der Naturgesetzbegriff in der französischen Aufklärung (d'Alembert, Diderot). Der Rückgriff auf die systematische architektonische Funktion von Gesetzen im zugehörigen Theoriengebäude und die Annahme eines explanatorischen Primats von Gesetzen lassen dem Naturgesetzbegriff neuartige Signifikanz zuwachsen. Rekonstruiert werden soll die Ausbildung dieses Begriffs in der Rezeption der Cartesischen und Newtonschen Physik und unter dem Einfluss der Metaphysik Spinozas.
Die Promotion würde zwar im Fach Philosophie angestrebt, aber Bewerbungen aus anderen Fachgebieten sind ebenfalls willkommen.
Bewerbung mit den üblichen Unterlagen zu Projekt 1: Prof. Dr. Martin Carrier, Abteilung Philosophie, Universität Bielefeld, Postfach 100131, 33501 Bielefeld Projekt 2: Prof. Dr. Michael Hampe, Lehrstuhl Philosophie II, Universität Bamberg, Markusplatz 3, 96047 Bamberg Interessenten erhalten auf Wunsch den zugrunde liegenden Projektantrag (Mcarrier@philosophie.uni-bielefeld.de; Michael.Hampe@ppp.uni-bamberg.de).

In connection with a five-year AHRB-funded project on the Logical and Metaphysical Foundations of Classical Mathematics, Arché now seeks to appoint to two postgraduate studentships for work on aspects of the project under the directorship of Professor Crispin Wright and Professor Stewart Shapiro.

For a characterisation of the issues under investigation, see the project page (http://www.st-and.ac.uk/~arche/ahrbaims.shtml). However we will be interested to receive proposals for work on other issues which you identify as involved in the neo-Fregean programme or other collateral questions falling within the spirit and general brief of the project.

For those potentially interested in the postgraduate studentships: you should have or be expecting a first or high upper-second class degree (or equivalent), or, alternatively have or be expecting a post-graduate qualification in philosophy (or have undertaken equivalent course-work at post-graduate level). You should be enthusiastic about going on to graduate work in philosophy, with interests in formal and philosophical logic and a liking for philosophy of mathematics, language and science.

If you possess only undergraduate qualifications, you will undertake a year of course work in the St. Andrews-Stirling (SASP) graduate programme before beginning three further years of doctoral research under the supervision of members of the project team. If you already possess a suitable post-graduate qualification (or have already undertaken suitable post-graduate course work), you may begin doctoral research immediately, and will normally receive three years funding.

The postgraduate studentships are restricted to those who do not already possess a doctorate and have been resident in the UK for at least three years before taking up the studentship or would otherwise be eligible for AHRB postgraduate awards (for further guidance on eligibility see the AHRB Notes for guidance concerning Postgraduate Studentships.

Das Projekt "Handlungstheoretische Rekonstruktion der Sprechakttheorie" innerhalb der Forschergruppe "Kommunikatives Verstehen" sucht einen wissenschaftlichen Mitarbeiter, der - vorausgesetzt, dass es verlängert wird - ab dem 1. April 2001 für drei Jahre zu uns stößt. Im Projekt ist zuerst einmal Schiffers Definition von Kommunikationsversuchen und die darauf aufbauende Taxonomie illokutionärer Akte (aus "Meaning") mit Hilfe von Meggles Kommunikationsmodell (aus "Grundbegriffe der Kommunikation") logisch zu rekonstruieren. (Mehr zur Forschergruppe und zum Projekt finden Sie unter http://www.uni-leipzig.de/~fkv/.)

Southhampton University, UK

Doctorate Research, Cognitive Science

Seeking qualified potential postgraduate students who might be interested in doing a Doctorate with me in Cognitive Science at Southampton University. I have some EPSRC Doctoral Fellowships available for funding strong UK candidates (and some possible supplements for especially strong non-UK candidates).
My research is in three general areas: (1) Categorical Perception. This is experimental and computational research on how both humans and machines learn to categorize and name things, and how this influences the way things look to us. (Perceptual learning, brain imaging, neural net modeling.)

(2) Symbol Grounding and Language Origins. This is experimental and computational research on how category names grounded in categorical perception can be combined through language to ground further categories. (Symbolic learning, hybrid modeling, artificial life, robotics.)

Open research positions in ontological engineering

Deadline: 15/06/00

LADSEB-CNR has recently become involved in an European industrial project focused on ontology-driven knowledge management/knowledge extraction in multiple domains. Within this project, we will be committed to build a general reference ontology with lexical links to English and Italian, and to offer methodological consultancy for domain-specific ontology-driven conceptual modeling and information retrieval mainly in the fields of Banking and Insurance. Other related projects will involve ontology-based harmonization of meta-data standards, especially in the field of e-commerce. We are looking for motivated people to join a research team in which the sophisticated ontology design principles we have developed in the past few years will be challenged by very concrete engineering goals. We are planning for two researchers with a PhD in computer science, computational lingustics, philosophy or equivalent experience, whose salary and formal position will depend on their qualifications. Further research grants are planned for somebody willing to spend some time here working on a PhD topic related to the project. Contracts are for 1 year starting on September 2000, with the possibility of extending them for up to 2 years. All these positions require European citizenship; shorter visiting positions may be negotiated with non-European citizens.

Cambridge University, Cambridge, England,

University Assistant Lecturer in the History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine

Deadline: 15.09.99

The Position The Department of History and Philosophy of Science intends to appoint a University Assistant Lecturer in the field of history and philosophy of science and medicine. The Department has particular needs in history of medicine before 1800 and in biomedical ethics, but excellent candidates in all areas of history and philosophy of science and medicine are welcome to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to take up the position at an agreed date on or before 1st October 2000. The appointment will be for three years, with the possibility of reappointment for two years. The statutory limit of tenure of a University Assistant Lecturer is five years, but all holders of the office of University Assistant Lecturer are considered for possible appointment to the office of University Lecturer during the course of their tenure. In recent years, the substantial majority of University Assistant Lecturers have been promoted to University Lectureships. The pensionable scale of stipend for a University Assistant Lecturer is 16,655 pounds a year, rising by six annual increments to 21,815 pounds (under review). The Department The Department is the largest of its kind in the U.K., with an outstanding international reputation. It is a vigorous and expanding centre of teaching and research, as recognised by the award of the highest grade of 5*(A) in the 1996 HEFCE national Research Assessment Exercise. The Department is built around the Whipple Museum, a world-class collection of scientific instruments, the gift of R.S. Whipple to the University in 1943. The large collections of the Whipple Library, also founded on Whipple's gift of his rare scientific books, now functioning as the Departmental Library, provide the basis for the research and teaching at both undergraduate and graduate level. The Department is an independent institution under the direct supervision of the General Board, located in one building in the centre of Cambridge. There are 9 established University Teaching Officers, including two Professors, two Readers and the Curator of the Whipple Museum. It has extensive links with other Departments and Faculties in the University, with a range of subjects extending from the physical and biological sciences, via Medicine and the social sciences (Psychology, Social and Political Sciences), to the humanities (History, Classics, Philosophy). From 1972 to 1998, the Wellcome Trust funded a Wellcome Unit of the History of Medicine as a Sub-Department within the Department, whose members engaged both in research and teaching. With several teaching officers and senior research fellows active in the field the Department remains a very strong centre of teaching and research in history of medicine. Last year the Department secured a new teaching position in the history of modern medicine and biomedical sciences and it hopes that this second new post will help foster further work in the area and thus retain continuity with this long and distinguished tradition. The undergraduate teaching is offered as part of the Natural Sciences Tripos in the second and third years (the third year course is a full-time specialist course, with students coming from a number of other Faculties from outside the Natural Sciences) and as part of the final year of the Medical and Veterinary Sciences Tripos. Total undergraduate numbers are in the range 100-160. The Department also offers an M.Phil. in History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine, with numbers approximating 15-20 per year. From 1998 on, the M.Phil. in History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine has been expanded to include topics in the history of medicine. Ph.D. students at any one time total approximately upwards of 35. There are also a number of Research Fellows and Visiting Scholars attached to the Department, so that the total number of persons engaged in postgraduate and postdoctoral research in the Department is around 100. The Research Seminars (over 6 series at any one time), running on a weekly or fortnightly basis throughout the year, are an important part of these research activities, and ensure that the Department is a hotbed of intellectual activity throughout the academic year. History and Philosophy of Science is taught at present at both Part IB (2nd year) and Part II (3rd Year) levels. The Part II courses were reorganised in 1998-99 and extend over a broad range of topics, including Classical Traditions in the Sciences; Natural and Moral Philosophies; Science, Industry and Empire; Metaphysics, Epistemology and the Sciences; Science and Technology Studies; History and Philosophy of Mind; History of Medicine from Antiquity to the Enlightenment and Modern Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. The general ethos of the Department fosters the interplay between Philosophy of Science and History of Science. History of Medicine is also a major component of all postgraduate work, including the M.Phil. in History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine; the Department intends to include Philosophical Issues in Contemporary Science and Medicine, including Biomedical Ethics, as a major part of its teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Applications Applications, including a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, details of teaching experience and two samples of recent work, should be sent to the Secretary of the Appointments Committee, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge, Free School Lane, Cambridge CB2 3RH (Tel: +44 1223 334540; Fax: +44 1223 334554; E-mail: th10001@hermes.cam.ac.uk) from who further particulars may be obtained. Informal inquiries by email are welcome and further information can be found on the Department's website at http://www.hps.cam.ac.uk Applicants are themselves requested to ask for three referees to send references to the Secretary by the closing date. Candidates who have been shortlisted will be informed in early November and will be invited to the Department on 25th and 26th November to present seminar papers and for interview. The closing date for applications is 15th September 1999. The University follows an equal opportunity policy.

Van kandidaten wordt verwacht dat ze in staat zijn die deskundigheid te integreren in het onderwijs. Ze moeten voldoen aan de volgende eisen: -gepromoveerd in een technische of natuurwetenschappelijke discipline (met aantoonbare achtergrond in de ethiek) of gepromoveerd in de filosofie (met aantoonbare achtergrond in natuurwetenschap of techniek) -grondige kennis van de ethiek (bij voorkeur ook kennis van en multidisciplinaire orientatie op voor ethiek en techniek relevante vakgebieden); een zelfstandige bijdrage aan het vakgebied ethiek en techniek hebben geleverd -relevante kennis van de beroepspraktijk van ingenieurs en van ethische problemen die zich daarin (kunnen) voordoen -ervaring met onderwijs, bij voorkeur in de ethische aspecten van techniek (of wetenschap) -goed kunnen werken in teamverband -goede contactuele eigenschappen.
