Postdoctoral position (3y) on "Truth & Semantics", Bristol (England)

Deadline: Sunday 14 April 2019

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Bristol invites applications for a three-year Research Associate in Logic/Formal Semantics with the ERC-funded project 'Truth and Semantics' directed by Johannes Stern. The project aims to provide a unified perspective on natural language semantics, conceived of as truth-conditional semantics, and the research on the so-called semantic paradoxes in the form of theories of self-applicable truth.

The Research Associate is expected to conduct research with the aim of developing semantic accounts for rich fragments of natural language. They should have a research profile in logic and/or formal semantics. A background in formal theories of truth and/or relevant fields of natural language semantics may be an advantage. The role is offered on an open ended basis with fixed funding for three years, starting October 2019.
