Leibniz Universität Hannover and Universität Bielefeld jointly seek to fill

Four Doctoral Candidate Positions (65% TV-L 13)

starting October 1st, 2015, within the Graduiertenkolleg (research training 
group) GRK 2073 “Integrating Ethics and Epistemology of Scientific Research”.

Initial appointment will be for two years. Given successful participation in 
the qualification program and progress on the PhD project, the position is 
renewable for one more year. The positions will be filled as 65% 
Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter positions on salary scale TV-L 13. Two of the 
positions are expected to be located at Leibniz Universität Hannover and the 
other two at Universität Bielefeld.

GRK 2073 “Integrating Ethics and Epistemology of Scientific Research” is a 
research training group that is established as a joint project by Leibniz 
Universität Hannover and Universität Bielefeld. Its is funded by the DFG, the 
German national funding agency. Its research program aims at bridging the gap 
between theory and practice in philosophy of science in two ways: firstly, it 
examines new connections between theoretical philosophy of science 
(epistemology, metaphysics) and practical philosophy of science (ethics of 
science, political philosophy of science); secondly, it analyses relevant 
links between the cognitive dimension of the sciences (theories, hypotheses, 
discourses, models) and the material culture of the sciences (objects, 
equipment, experiments, practices). The working language of GRK 2073 is 
English.

Applicants must be fluent in English and should be able to demonstrate an 
interest in philosophy of science (broadly construed to include also ethics 
and political philosophy of science). They should hold a pertinent university 
degree (typically an MA degree in Philosophy or HPS) and must be eligible to 
enroll as PhD students in Philosophy at Leibniz Universität Hannover or 
Universität Bielfeld. They need to specify a dissertation project that fits the 
aims of the research program of GRK 2073 as described above.

The obligations of each holder of one of the advertised positions will be to 
conduct research on a dissertation project that contributes to the research 
program of GRK 2073 and to participate in the training activities that are 
specified by the qualification program. Holders of the positions must enroll as 
PhD students in philosophy at Leibniz Universität Hannover or Universität 
Bielefeld. It is expected that they take residence in the region of their
