in the research area of philosophy of science, with a special emphasis on 
economics and/or the social and behavioral sciences.

The Department of Philosophy, which is a part of the School of Humanities

science, general and applied ethics, legal philosophy, and German 
idealism. The successful candidate will become the head of the 
internationally renowned Tilburg Center for Logic and Philosophy of 
Science (TiLPS), whose scope has recently been extended to include general 
ethics. The profile and institutional embedding of TiLPS are based on an 
emphasis on philosophy of science as it applies to economics and the 
social and behavioral sciences. This orientation provides a basis for the 
commitment of departmental research to reflect on the normative and 
epistemological foundations of the disciplinary fields offered by Tilburg 
University, including economics, law, the social and behavioral sciences, 
and the humanities with special emphasis on cognition and communication, 
and on language, culture and religion.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching in the 
department of philosophy in philosophy of science, epistemology, and 
related fields, both at the Bachelor and Master levels. Additionally, she

of publications in internationally rated journals in philosophy of science 
and books with publishing houses of international standing; (iv) 
experience in obtaining research grants from funding agencies; (v) the 
capacity and the disposition to engage in interdisciplinary research 
within and beyond the School of Humanities; (vi) the capacity and the 
disposition to take on important administrative tasks in the department.

The successful candidate will have excellent command of the English 
language; if not Dutch speaking, she or he will be willing to acquire a 
working knowledge of the Dutch language within the first two years of 
appointment. The successful candidate must be prepared to move to the 
Netherlands, to the area where Tilburg University is located.

top of Dutch employers and has excellent terms of employment. The selected 
candidate will in principle be ranked in the Dutch university employment

appointment is (minimal)  4.953,- up to (maximal)  7.213,- per month 
(max  100.665,- all in per year). Candidates from outside the Netherlands 
may qualify for a tax-free allowance equal to 30% of their taxable salary.
