The CIN is associated with the Philosophy Department in Tbingen and backed by six faculties, the Max Planck Institute of Biological Cybernetics, the Collaborative Research Centre 550, the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research, the Graduate School of Neural and Behavioural Sciences, and numerous other internal and external partners (www.neuroscience-tuebingen.de/cin/). Candidates are invited to submit research proposals on any given topic in the Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Sciences. Interdisciplinary projects are especially welcome. In this case, additional supervisors from the relevant empirical sciences will be available. Therefore, in addition to familiarity with philosophical issues in Philosophy of Mind competence in either cognitive psychology, behavioral psychology, or cognitive neuroscience is very welcome. Applications should include information about your academic record and curriculum vitae including copies of your diplomas, a brief statement of interest including a written dissertation proposal not exceeding 1500 words, names and contact details for two academic referees familiar with your work, and an indication of when you would be available to take up the position.
