www.pfeifer-research.de/spp.html

Dr. Niki Pfeifer (Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, LMU Munich) 
offers under the usual equal opportunity conditions one doctoral researcher 
position OR one early postdoctoral researcher position (i.e., if the PhD is 
obtained after January 1, 2013) to work in the intersection of philosophy and 
psychology (65%, TV-L 13, 1 year, extension possibilities will depend on 
performance and funding situation). Moreover, one student assistant position is 
vacant. The (post)doctoral researcher will focus on empirical work (developing 
the research hypotheses, designing the experiments and running the data 
analysis) in the field of reasoning under uncertainty, focusing on 
conditionals. One student assistant will support the (post)doctoral researcher 
with the construction of the experimental material, collection of the data and 
preparation of the data for analysis. Working language is English or German.

Deadline for applications: open, until filled (filled positions will be 
announced on the project website).

4) evidence of English and mathematical skills (e.g., school/university grades)
5) two confidential letters of reference addressing the applicant's 
qualifications are required for each position. These must be sent by the 
referees directly to me.

The ideal candidate will be an empirically oriented analytical philosopher or
