Tenure-track position in philosophy of science or logic, Salzburg, AUSTRIA


 The Department of Philosophy at the Faculty of Cultural and Social 
Sciences at the University of Salzburg seeks applications for a 
tenure-track position in philosophy of science or logic. The appointment 
will be made within the Austrian A2 salary scheme (initial salary is at 
least 56.485,80 Euro per annum with automatic pay increases as detailed in 
the "Kollektivvertrag fr die ArbeitnehmerInnen der Universitten"). The 
starting date is 1 October 2014.

 The Department of Philosophy in Salzburg is known for its analytic and 
formal approach to philosophy. The logic and philosophy of science unit is 
led by the newly-appointed Professor Charlotte Werndl (formerly at London 
School of Economics). The Department is expanding and two additional full 
professors and several Assistant professors (tenure-track positions) and 
doctoral students will be hired in the next months and years. The 
appointee will join a vibrant philosophy community. There will be 
colloquia with international speakers as well as various other activities 
such as workshops, conferences and reading groups.

 The main tasks of the appointee will be research and teaching in 
philosophy of science or logic. The research should use analytic and 
formal methods to address philosophical questions. The initial teaching 
load is four hours per semester on average (eight hours on average after 
tenure). The appointee will also be expected to supervise Ph.D. and Master 
students and to take on some management tasks. The successful candidate 
will have a Ph.D. in philosophy, philosophy of science or logic. 
Publications in internationally leading journals, interdisciplinary 
research and evidence of visibility in the international scientific 
community are desirable.

 The employment is initially for six years. After a successful tenure 
procedure it will be made permanent. The conditions for tenure are either 
the achievement of certain aims (which will be agreed upon before the 
start of employment) or a habilitation. The tenure procedure usually takes 
place after four to six years (for advanced candidates this can be 

 Fluency in German is not mandatory at the time of application. However,

and two writing samples (10.000 word limit for each writing sample). No
