PhD student position in "Epistemological Aspects of Simulation Based Science"

www.simtech.uni-stuttgart.de

PhD Student in the Field of Epistemological Aspects of Simulation Based Science

The integrative modelling framework that SimTech is aiming at depends on an adequate specification of simulation modules and their coupling. This project will develop a fine-grained taxonomy of simulation elements and will identify and compare their strengths and weaknesses. It will clarify the epistemic status of simulations with respect to theory and experiment and develop a state-of-the-art theory of simulation-based engineering science that allows for the specification of a framework of SimTech modules.

Successful applicants should hold a masters degree in Philosophy/Theory of Science or in Computer Science and be able to combine knowledge of both fields.

The post is located at the Institute of Philosophy, PD Dr. Niels Gottschalk-Mazouz.

The position with the designated salary bracket TV-L 13 has a limited tenure of initially three years. The PhD is expected to participate actively in the SimTech Teaching Programmes and Industry Transfer Concepts.

Please quote the reference number "ZEXC310" with your application.

We offer additional postdoc and PhD positions at: www.simtech.uni-stuttgart.de

Applications with the usual documents (CV, degree certificates, references, publication list, letter of motivation) should be sent to Management of the Cluster of Excellence in Simulation Technology, to arrive no later than October 15, 2008.
