Postdoctoral position in intelligent interaction, Groningen, THE NETHERLANDS


The Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, seeks one postdoc for 
the research project "Logics for Intelligent Interaction: Expressivity and Succinctness" led by 
Barteld Kooi and funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). The project 
focuses on one of the prominent themes in logic today: intelligent interaction, which occurs in any
social situation. There is a multitude of logical theories in this area to such an extent that for 
one and the same subject there is more than one approach. There is a great need to establish 
whether alternative approaches actually provide fundamentally different perspectives, or whether 
the differences are merely superficial. By focusing on the expressivity and succinctness of these 
logics, possible differences in their underlying conceptual frameworks are revealed, thus advancing
our understanding of these conceptual frameworks and thereby of intelligent interaction itself.

 A detailed outline of the project can be obtained by sending an e-mail to Barteld Kooi 
( B.P.Kooi@rug.nl [mailto:B.P.Kooi@rug.nl] ). 

Requirements

- strong interest in Logics for Intelligent Interaction

- motivated to play an active role in the Groningen logic community

- completed PhD (or very soon to be completed) in a field relevant to the project (e.g. philosophy,
mathematics, artificial intelligence, computer science)

- fluent in English.

 	Conditions of employment

 	The University of Groningen offers a salary that will range between 3,195 and 4,374 euro 
gross per month depending on experience. The postdoc position is awarded for a two-year period. 
The successful applicant will be working under supervision of Barteld Kooi. Objective of the 
appointment is the production of a number of research articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals.


 	How to apply

 	Please send the following electronically to Barteld Kooi ( B.P.Kooi@rug.nl 
[mailto:B.P.Kooi@rug.nl] ) before June 25th 2012:

- a letter explaining your competence in the research field, and your motivation
