We invite applications for the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy, to work on the project The Construction of Personal Identities Online. The project is funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The aim of the project is to investigate the construction of personal identities (PI) when they are digitally mediated, that is, when individuals are embedded in virtual environments that provide unprecedented affordances and different constraints for PI development, as well as innovative opportunities of interactions with other agents both human and artificial.
You will be based in the Philosophy Department and collaborate full time to the project. You will hold a doctorate or should do so by the starting date, in a relevant discipline such as Philosophy (preferably) or Computer Science. You will have a proven research record in philosophy, preferably some expertise in philosophy of mind or philosophy of AI, very strong IT skills, and an ability to work across disciplines.
To apply please complete an application form, submit your CV and a sample of recent work (preferably a published article). You should arrange for references from two academic referees to be sent to l.floridi@herts.ac.uk.
For further information about the project, please visit http://www.philosophyofinformation.net/grants/pio/index.html.
For further information please contact Professor Luciano Floridi, Research Chair in Philosophy of Information, University of Hertfordshire by emailing l.floridi@herts.ac.uk.
