University of Antwerp, Postdoctoral Fellowship in Philosophy of Perception
Feb 06, 2014 → Apr 04, 2014
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Philosophy of Perception at the University of Antwerp
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Antwerp. The postdoc will be part of Bence Nanay’s research group (funded by FWO, FP7 CIG and BOF UA) and will work with Professor Nanay. The length of the fellowship is two years. The pay is (for US and UK standards) very generous. Postdoctoral researchers in Belgium are public employees with very generous benefits. Antwerp is commutable from a number of European cities, including Paris, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Cologne. The research group has three postdocs at the moment.
There is no teaching obligations. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to work on joint projects with Professor Nanay (and other members of the research group). So the candidate should have a significant overlap of research interests with Nanay.
This specific postdoctoral position is tied to the interdisciplinary European Network for Sensory Research (which is based in Antwerp) and it comes with some administrative duties in coordinating activities both within the European Network for Sensory Research and with the partner networks (the Toronto-based Network and the London-based CenSes). So it is desirable that the candidate has a strong background in the empirical sciences and in philosophical issues about the senses (working in the analytic tradition). Candidates are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org if they have doubts about whether their profile matches this call. Candidates must have a PhD degree in philosophy.
Please send a cv, a max 5000 word writing sample and a max 1-page outline of what joint papers/projects the candidate envisages to write/have with the primary investigator to Nanay and have two letters of reference sent to the same email address. Please write ‘Postdoc: Senses’ in the subject line of any email sent.
Deadline: March 21, 2013 Starting date of the position: Spring/Summer 2014 (negotiable)
