Visiting fellowships at the MCMP, Munich, GERMANY


The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP; 
http://www.lmu.de/mcmp) invites applications for visiting fellowships for 
one to three months in the academic year 2014/15 (15 October 2014 to 15 
February 2015 or 15 April to 15 July 2015) intended for advanced Ph.D. 
students (?Junior Fellowships") and postdocs or faculty (?Senior 
Fellowships"). Candidates should work in general philosophy of science, 
the philosophy of one of the special sciences, formal epistemology, or 
social epistemology and have a commitment to interdisciplinary and 
collaborative work. To apply, send your application (ideally everything in 
one pdf file) to philscifellows.MCMP@lrz.uni-muenchen.de with the subject 
?Junior Fellowship Application? or ?Senior Fellowship Application?. 
Candidates should include a letter of interest (which also indicates the 
period of the planned stay), a CV, and a project outline of no more than 
1000 words. Candidates for a Junior Fellowship should additionally supply 
one letter of recommendation. We offer a tax-free stipend of 800 
Euro/month for junior fellows and 1200 Euro/month for senior fellows to 
partly cover additional expenses such as housing and transportation to and 
from Munich. It is also possible to stay for a longer period (e.g. if you 
are on a sabbatical), but stipends will be for maximally three months.

We also encourage groups of two to four researchers, which may also 
include scientists, to jointly apply for fellowships (?Research Group 
Fellowships") to work on an innovative collaborative project from the 
above-mentioned fields which is of relevance for the research done at the 
MCMP and which ideally includes a member of the MCMP as a collaborator. To 
apply, send your application (if possible everything in one pdf file) to 
philscifellows.MCMP@lrz.uni-muenchen.de with the subject ?Research Group 
Fellowship Application?. Interested groups should include a letter of 
interest (which also indicates the period of the planned stay), a CV of 
each group member, and a project outline of no more than 2000 words that 
also includes information about the intended output of the project. We 
offer a tax-free stipend of 800 Euro/month for junior group members and 
1200 Euro/month for senior group members to partly cover additional 
expenses such as housing and transportation to and from Munich. It is also 
possible to stay for a longer period, but stipends will be for maximally 
three months.

The deadline for applications is 20 February 2014. Decisions will be made 
by 1 March 2014. For further information, please contact 
Alexander.Reutlinger@lrz.uni-muenchen.de.
