PhD student position in a project relating to set theory and theories of truth, Aberdeen, SCOTLAND

http://www.abdn.ac.uk/cass/graduate/elphinstone-phd-scholarships-329.php

An Elphinstone PhD Scholarships is available in philosophy of mathematics 
at the University of Aberdeen. This scholarship covers the entirety of 
tuition fees for a PhD student of any nationality commencing full-time 
study in October 2014, for the three-year duration of their studies.

http://www.abdn.ac.uk/cass/graduate/elphinstone-phd-scholarships-329.php

The candidate will be supervised by Toby Meadows and ystein Linnebo on a 
project relating to set theory and formal theories of truth. The project 
will exploit philosophical and mathematical resources to take insights 
from set theory into truth theory and vice versa. Some important questions 
and problems in this area include:

? How can the technical tools of set theory be applied to develop better 
formal theories of truth?

? What insights can the problems of semantic paradoxes offer to the 
problem of developing a thoroughgoing foundation for mathematics?

? Is there a uniform means of classifying logical paradoxes including both 
semantic and set theoretic varieties?

? What can this tell us about how they should be solved?

An ideal candidate will have experience in formal logic, metaphysics and 
philosophy of mathematics.

Please contact me if you are interested.
