Postdoctoral position (2y) in philosophy of mind, Tuebingen, GERMANY


at the Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience, Tuebingen (Germany)

On TV-L E 13 scale, starting at 38,232 euros per annum.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

July 20, 2013

The Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) is an
interdisciplinary institution at the Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen,
funded by the German Excellence Initiative programme. The CIN strives to
advance our understanding of the mind/brain by studying how the brain
generates and sustains mental functions and how brain diseases impair these

As part of its integrative approach to studying the mind/brain, the CIN
offers a postdoctoral research fellowship for promising researchers in the
field of philosophy of mind/psychology/neuroscience. The candidate should
either be a philosopher with a strong background in philosophy of
mind/psychology/neuroscience and with a track record of interacting with
empirical work in cognitive science, or a cognitive scientist with a strong
track record of interacting with philosophy. A PhD is required by the time
of appointment. The working language of the CIN is English.

The successful candidate will be a member of the CIN?s Philosophy of
Neuroscience group, led by Dr. Hong Yu Wong, and is expected to strengthen
and/or complement the Philosophy of Neuroscience group?s current lines of
research. The foci of the group?s current research are the connections
between perception and action, body cognition, rationality, and the
philosophical foundations of cognitive neuroscience. The group aims to
contribute to the rapprochement between philosophy and neuroscience through
reconsidering traditional questions in the philosophy of mind in the light
of contemporary scientific developments.

The duration of the position is for 2 years. The successful candidate will
have opportunities to contribute to graduate teaching at the Philosophy
Department of the University of Tuebingen and the Max Planck Neural and
Behavioural Graduate School. If desired, the university will provide
opportunities to do a German ?Habilitation? according to established rules.
The planned start date of the position is September 15, 2013. Earlier or
later start dates are negotiable.

According to German law, severely disabled persons with equal occupational
aptitude will be given preferential consideration.

The University of Tuebingen strives to promote equal opportunities in
science and is committed to increasing the percentage of females in teaching
and research. Qualified female candidates are thus strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, pdf files of 2 samples of their
philosophical work (in English), and a research proposal detailing future
directions of research (not to exceed 2 pages). 3 reference letters are
required. Candidates should request their referees to email Dr. Wong
directly with their reference letters by the deadline. All documents should
be submitted electronically (pdf) to the Group Leader of the Philosophy of
Neuroscience Group, Dr. Hong Yu Wong, at
The deadline for applications is July 20, 2013. Shortlisted candidates will
be interviewed via Skype within a week of the deadline. Inquiries about the
post should be directed to Dr. Wong.
