Three Postdoctoral Fellowships at the Rotman Institute of Philosophy
The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is inviting applications for three Postdoctoral Fellowships in Applied Ethics, Philosophy of Neuroscience (in collaboration with Western’s Brain and Mind Institute), and Foundations of Physics.
The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is situated in one of Canada’s leading departments of philosophy. It brings together philosophers and scientists to work on problems of social significance. The faculty includes two Canada Research Chair holders; ongoing research focuses on a variety philosophical problems arising in contemporary physics, biology, cognitive neuroscience, and medical science.
The LOGOS Research Group wishes to inform young researchers in philosophy at the postdoctoral stages of their careers of a recently published call.
The Catalan government, through its research agency AGAUR, has issued a call for a number of 2-year postdoctoral Beatriu de Pinós fellowships. The period of application begins 12/12/2014 and ends 05/02/2015. Applications must ultimately be presented by researchers from a Catalan institution who sponsor the relevant candidate.
The LOGOS Research Group (http://www.ub.edu/grc_logos/index.php) encourages qualified candidates, working in areas within the remit of the group, to send their expression of interest to the group’s coordinator at email@example.com to solicit support.
Please note that the LOGOS Research Group itself is neither the grant-awarding body nor a department or a research centre, nor is it the only group based at a Spanish institution that might sponsor or incorporate successful applicants. Please note also that support from members of the group is not automatic but subject to explicit agreement in the light of the candidate’s academic profile.
Each Postdoctoral Fellowship has a one-year term with the possibility of renewal for a second year. The Fellow will have an office within the Rotman Institute. She or he will be required to involve themselves fully in the research life of the Institute by conducting research leading to peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations, and by participating in conferences, research groups, reading groups, and outreach activities.
Candidates must have had a PhD in Philosophy conferred within five years of the start of the Fellowship. All PhD requirements must be completed by the starting date of this Postdoctoral Fellowship, July 1, 2015. The stipend is $40,500 CDN. Additionally, the Fellow will be provided a research allowance of $5,000 CDN.
Postdoctoral Fellows at the Rotman Institute have gone on to great things. Rachael Brown (Postdoc in the Institute 2013-2014) won the Sir Karl Popper Prize for 2014 (http://thebjps.typepad.com/my-blog/2014/11/the-sir-karl-popper-prize-for-2014-.html), for the best paper appearing in the British Journal for the Philosophy of Science. Kerry McKenzie (2013-14) was hired as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at UC San Diego after her Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Rotman Institute. Trevor Pearce (2011-12) has also become an Assistant Professor, at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
