Four PhD studentships in mathematical philosophy, GERMANY

Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP), Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich

Four doctoral fellowships are being advertised at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP). 
The MCMP, which is devoted to applications of logical and mathematical methods in philosophy, has recently
been established at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU) based on generous support by the 
Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Directed by Professor Hannes Leitgeb, the Center hosts a vibrant research
community of university faculty, postdoctoral fellows, doctoral fellows, and visiting fellows. From the
beginning of May 2011, the Center will organize its own weekly Colloquium in Mathematical Philosophy seminar
series, as well as various other activities such as workshops, conferences, reading groups, internal
work-in-progress seminars, and the like. The successful candidate will partake in all of the Center's 
academic activities and enjoy its administrative facilities and financial support. More information on the
Center can be found at


and at

one can find a list of people who are currently affiliated with the Center. Over and above the Center, 
the Faculty of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science and the Study of Religion at LMU offers a wealth of
expertise in all areas of philosophy.

The successful applicants, who will become PhD students at the LMU, are supposed to use logical and 
mathematical methods in their philosophical work, and/or to reflect on these methods philosophically. 
PhD projects can, of course, be carried out in logic or philosophy of mathematics, but they are not 
restricted to these fields -- for instance, work in epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy 
of language, metaphysics, moral philosophy, and so forth are equally encouraged, as long as formal 
methods play a significant role in the corresponding research projects.

In general, applicants should be in possession of the skills that would normally be gained by achieving
an MA or equivalent in Philosophy or Logic. The doctoral stipends are for three years, they are intended
to cover the period of dissertation research and writing, and they should be taken up by September 2011.
Each stipend will amount to EUR 1500 of monthly salary (normally tax-free, but excluding insurance).
Dissertations may be written in English or German. The official language at the Center is English, and
the successful candidates need not be able to speak German.

Applications are due by March 20th, 2011, and should include:
1. A cover letter that addresses, amongst others, one's academic background and research interests.
2. A curriculum vitae.
3. A proposal for a dissertation project (3 pages).
4. A sample of written work (e.g., a seminar paper or a published article).
5. Academic transcripts from university study.
6. Two confidential letters of reference addressing the applicant?s qualifications for doctoral
research. These should be sent from the referees directly.

We especially encourage female students to apply. The Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich endeavours
to raise the percentage of women among its academic personnel.

Applications, letters of reference, as well as any questions ought to be directed to Barbara Poehlmann 
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet Muenchen Fakultaet fuer Philosophie, Wissenschaftstheorie und 
Religionswissenschaft Lehrstuhl fuer Logik und Sprachphilosophie / MCMP Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1
D-80539 Muenchen


If possible at all, we prefer to receive applications and letters of reference by e-mail (sent to
