Postdoctoral fellow in theoretical philosophy (2y), Gothenburg, SWEDEN


Closing date: 2013-04-25

In the Swedish higher education system, theoretical philosophy is
distinguished from practical philosophy. Under the heading of ?theoretical
philosophy? is included research in metaphysics, the philosophy of
language, epistemology, and the philosophy of mind. To be eligible for
this position, applicants are expected to conduct research in (and to have
a PhD on) issues in one (or several) of these areas. We especially
encourage applications from researchers working in metaphysics/ ontology
(including metametaphysics and metaontology), the philosophy of language,
and/or the philosophy of mind. We will only be considering applications
from researchers working in analytic philosophy, broadly construed.

For a description of the research we do, as well as an introduction to the
subject?s researchers and PhD students, go here:

The successful candidate is expected to carry out most of his or her
research in Gothenburg and to actively participate in the department?s
weekly seminar activities. The holder should be proficient in either
Swedish and English or only English.
