Ausschreibung / Call for Applications


Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships at the MCMP (LMU Munich)

The  Chair of Philosophy of Science at the Faculty of Philosophy,
Philosophy
of Science and the Study of Religion and the Munich Center for Mathematical
Philosophy (MCMP) at LMU Munich seek applications for the following
fellowships:

1. One Postdoctoral Fellowship

2. One Doctoral Fellowship

Deadline: April 7, 2013
Starting date: October 1, 2013 (or later)

The Chair of Philosophy of Science focuses on general philosophy of science
and the philosophy of the natural and social sciences. We are especially
interested in conducting joint research projects with colleagues from other
faculties at LMU Munich and elsewhere.

The MCMP is devoted to applications of logical, mathematical, and
computational methods in philosophy. It was established in 2010 and is
generously supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation through two
Alexander von Humboldt professorships. Directed by Professor Stephan
Hartmann and  Professor Hannes Leitgeb, who founded the MCMP, the MCMP
hosts
a vibrant research community of university faculty, postdoctoral fellows,
doctoral fellows, master students, and visiting fellows. The MCMP organizes
at least two weekly colloquia and a weekly internal work in-progress
seminar, as well as various other activities such as workshops,
conferences,
and reading groups. For more information, see

http://lmu.de/mcmp

The official language at the Chair and at the MCMP is English and fluency
in
German is not mandatory.

We especially encourage female scholars to apply. The LMU in general, and
the Chair of Philosophy of Science and the MCMP in particular, endeavor to
raise the percentage of women among its academic personnel.

1. One Postdoctoral Fellowship

The successful candidate will partake in all of MCMP's academic activities
and enjoy its administrative facilities and financial support. In this
round
of advertisements, we are especially interested in candidates who work in
the following areas: general philosophy of science (formal and non-formal),
philosophy of psychology, formal epistemology, social epistemology (formal
and non-formal), individual and collective decision theory, modeling and
simulation in philosophy, and experimental philosophy, but we are also open
to candidates who apply formal methods in metaphysics, moral and political
philosophy or any other part of philosophy.

The fellowships are open for candidates with a PhD in philosophy. The
postdoctoral stipend is for two years, and it should be taken up by October
1, 2013, but a later starting date is also possible. (Please let us know if
you wish to start at a later date.) The stipend will amount to EUR 2400 of
monthly salary (normally tax-free, but excluding insurance). Additionally,
the MCMP helps its fellows with the costs that arise from attending
conferences (fees, traveling, accommodation). There is the possibility,
though no obligation, to do some teaching in either English or German.

Applications (including a cover letter that addresses, amongst others,
one's
academic background and research interests, a CV, a list of publications, a
sample of written work of no more than 5000 words, and a description of a
planned research project of 1000-1500 words) should be sent by email
(ideally everything requested in one PDF document) to
office.hartmann at lrz.uni-muenchen.de by April 7, 2013. Additionally, two
