Johan van Benthem appointed University Professor

The Universiteit van Amsterdam has appointed Johan van Benthem as university professor, to "further interdisciplinary research in the field of information science and cognitive science." The position of university professor is a very prestigious one and is offered to a select number of scholars of international renown, who "give an impuls to scientific developments that transcend traditional disciplines and make an important contribution to the profile of the university."

The appointment of Johan van Benthem as university professor does not mean that his association with ILLC ends: he will conduct his research as part of ILLC's efforts and he will also continue to supervise PhD students. His participation in various curricula will also continue albeit on a smaller scale.
