The appointee will be expected (i) to do philosophical research in the 
philosophy of physics and to lead a research group in this field, (ii) to 
teach five hours a week in philosophy of physics and/or a related field, 
and (iii) to take on management tasks. The successful candidate will have 
a PhD in philosophy and some teaching experience.

Applications (including a cover letter that addresses, amongst others, 
one's academic background and research interests, a CV, a list of 
publications, a list of taught courses, 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

same address from the referees directly.
