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.
