Two postdoctoral research associate positions in philosophy of mind / cognitive science, Manchester, UK

http://www.manchester.ac.uk/aboutus/jobs/

Applications are invited for two *Postdoctoral Research Associates* in the 
*Philosophy of Mind/Cognitive Science* at the University of Manchester.

Architecture of Consciousness"*, directed by Tim Bayne. Both positions are 
research-focused, and they involve no teaching or significant 
administrative responsibilities. Candidates must have a PhD degree in 
philosophy by January 2014; a background in psychology, neuroscience or 
psychiatry would be an advantage although it is not essential. The 
projected start date is 1 September 2013, although there is some room for 
flexibility here.

Applications should be made via the University of Manchester job portal ( 
http://www.manchester.ac.uk/aboutus/jobs/). The closing date for 
applications is *May 7th, 2013.*

Requests for further information should be directed to Prof. Tim Bayne: <
