Postdoc and PhD Position at the Cluster of Excellence in Simulation Technology embedded in the Institute of Philosophy, Universitt Stuttgart

The Institute of Philosophy (http://www.uni-stuttgart.de/philo/) is asking for applications for a scientist at the postdoc level and a PhD student to pursue research in philosophy of science and technology, reflecting and evaluating the research activities of the SimTech Cluster (http://www.simtech.uni-stuttgart.de/).

1. Postdoc in philosophy of science

The research should be devoted to the epistemology of simulation with a particular focus on conceptualisations of and methodological strategies for coping with uncertainty. Case studies drawn from the SimTech Cluster and close collaboration with natural scientists and engineers on methodological issues should form an integral part of the research. The successful candidate has a background in philosophy of science, epistemology or logic.

The position with the designated salary bracket TV-L 13 has a limited tenure of three years with a possible extension. The post is located at the Institute of Philosophy, Juniorprof. Dr. G. Betz.

2. PhD Student position in applied ethics

The PhD student is supposed to work on a project concerned with the normative evaluation of simulation studies. Special attention will be paid to potential value conflicts, which may arise when evaluating technology projects. Strategies that address such conflicts should be developed and applied when assessing activities of the SimTech Cluster. We are looking for a postgraduate student with a background in philosophy and experience in applied ethics, possibly technology assessment.

The position with the designated salary bracket 50% TV-L 13 has a limited tenure of three years with a possible extension. The post is located at the Institute of Philosophy, Prof. Dr. C. Hubig, SimTech-project EvSyst (see www.simtech.uni-stuttgart.de/forschung/projekte.php).

Applications with the usual documents (CV, degree certificates, publication list, letter of motivation) should be sent to Juniorprof. Dr. Gregor Betz, Seidenstrae 36, 70174 Stuttgart, Germany, to arrive not later than April 1, 2009.

Universitt Stuttgart wishes to increase the proportion of female academic staff and, for this reason, especially welcomes applications from women. Severely challenged persons will be given preference in case of equal qualifications.
