3y postdoctoral position on the metaphysics of causation, Geneva, SWITZERLAND


The University of Geneva's Department of Philosophy seeks a postdoc to 
work on a SNF-funded project on the metaphysics of causation. The project 
will be part of an international Sinergia network titled "Grounding - 
Metaphysics, Science, and Logic" involving three groups: Prof. Fabrice 
Correia (University of Neuchtel), Prof. Marcel Weber (University of 
Geneva) and Prof. Benjamin Schnieder (University of Hamburg). Funds for 
traveling and for organizing workshops will be available.

Geneva's Department of Philosophy provides a thriving research environment 
with several weekly research seminars organized by the centers eidos, 
episteme, thumos, and the Biological Interest Group. The Department also 
publishes the journal dialectica. Switzerland offers attractive salaries 
and a high quality of life, the Lake Geneva area being one of the 
country's most important economic, cultural and scientific centers.

The ideal candidate has completed a Ph.D. in metaphysics or philosophy of 
science and has worked on a topic related to causation. Publications in 
international journals are a plus. French language skills are not 
necessary, while an excellent command of English is imperative. The post 
should be taken up by Oct 1, 2013. A later start date might be possible; 
this should be requested in the application.

Applications should be sent by e-mail and should include a letter 
explaining the candidate's interest in the position, a detailed CV, a list 
of publications and one article- or chapter-length writing sample (if 
possible all in a single PDF document).

Applications as well as informal inquiries should be directed by e-mail 
only to Prof. Marcel Weber 
(marcel.weber@unige.ch).
