Philosophy Department, University of Kent, Canterbury

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
30,870 starting salary + annual increments.

PHD STUDENTSHIP
Fees paid + an annual maintenance grant of 13,590 per annum for three years.

 	1st May 2012 - 30 April 2015

 	Philosophy Department, University of Kent

 	To work with Prof. Jon Williamson on a project to research the relationship between 
Bayesian epistemology and inductive logic, funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council.

 	The Postdoctoral Research Associate will focus on the development of a particular inductive
logic, analysis of its key properties, and the development of computationally tractable methods for
performing inferences in the inductive logic. This will require some familiarity with probability 
and logic. Programming competence would also be desirable. Applicants will be expected to hold a 
PhD on a related topic in mathematics, computing, philosophy or a related subject.

 	The PhD student will focus on the question of whether the resulting inductive logic survives
a number of philosophical critiques. This will require competence in philosophical argumentation 
and knowledge of epistemology and elementary logic. Applicants will be expected to hold a Master's 
degree, and a Bachelor?s degree at class 2(i) or higher; at least one of these degrees should be in
philosophy.

 	Information about the project and application process is available at 
http://www.kent.ac.uk/reasoning/obeil.pdf [http://www.kent.ac.uk/reasoning/obeil.pdf]

 	The deadline for applications is 15th December 2011.
