Postdoctoral research fellowship in philosophy of science, Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA


The Department of Philosophy at the University of Johannesburg seeks to 
appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to build on its growing strengths 
in the philosophy of science, broadly construed. The Fellow will pursue 
his or her own research under the supervision of Alex Broadbent (joining 
two existing Fellows in the philosophy of science). Relevant research 
interests fall within the philosophy of science broadly construed, to 
include the philosophy of epidemiology and medicine, as well as relevant 
topics in metaphysics and epistemology, notably causation. Applications 
are also welcome from those with an interest in relevant jurisprudential 
or political issues, for example the use of scientific or statistical 
evidence in legal or policy contexts. Any other interesting application 
will also be considered.

Deadline: 15 July 2013
