applications for an Assistant Professorship with a specialization in (at 
least) one of the following areas:  Philosophy of Psychology, Philosophy 
of Social Science, Philosophy of Economics, and Philosophy of 
Neuroscience. The position is for three years with the possibility of 
extension for another three years. Note that there is no tenure-track 
option. The appointment will be made within the German A13 salary scheme 
(under the assumption that the civil service requirements are met), which

date is October 1, 2013.

The appointee will be expected (i) to do philosophical research and to 
lead a research group in her or his field, (ii) to teach five hours a week 
in at least one of the above-mentioned fields and/or a related field, and 
(iii) to take on some 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 
one PDF document) to office.hartmann@lrz.uni-muenchen.de by April 7, 2013. 
Additionally, two confidential letters of reference addressing the 
applicant's qualifications for academic research should be sent to the 
same address from the referees directly. Please indicate in the letter if 
you are also interested in the recently advertised postdoctoral fellowship 
in case you are not considered for the present position.

For further information, please contact Professor Stephan Hartmann 
(S.Hartmann@lmu.de).
