Two PhD student positions in mathematical/philosophical logic, Canterbury, NEW ZEALAND
Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD scholarship on the Marsden-funded project Non-classical Foundations of Analysis The project seeks to formulate and understand new mathematical models of the continuum using non-classical logics. The main thrust of the project will be to use paraconsistent logics to explore properties of sets, sequences, functions and continuity, and to prove interesting theorems that are classically hidden by inconsistency. The successful applicant will carry out doctoral study at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Canterbury, New Zealand. The topic of the thesis is flexible within the parameters of the project; the appointment is for three years. For details and how to apply, see the project website: http://www.math.canterbury.ac.nz/~m.jordens/NCFA/ Informal queries should be directed to the project co-ordinator, Maarten McKubre-Jordens (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org ). ==== Job 2==== A position for a fully-funded PhD candidate is available on the new Marsden Fund project Models of Paradox in Non-Classical Mereotopology to be conducted for three years starting March 2013, at the Department of Philosophy, University of Otago. The successful candidate might already know what all the words in the project's title mean. The goal of the project is to understand the nature of logical paradoxes. The strategy is to use mathematical models based on non-classical logics (paraconsistent and paracomplete). The topic of the thesis will be up to the candidate, but should involve a serious approach to non-classical mathematics.
