W3 Professorship for Epistemology & Theory of Science, Freiburg (Germany)

Deadline: Thursday 30 April 2020

The University invites applications for a Full Professorship (W3) for Epistemology and Theory of Science. This professorship is particularly suitable for highly qualified early career researchers. Tenured, fulltime position, Start-date: At the earliest possible date.

The University expects an excellent international academic record in (Historical) Epistemology, Philosophy of Science and/or Theory of Science. More specifically, candidates should demonstrate - in research and teaching - a historical and comparative perspective on epistemology and methodology as well as on the societal and cultural conditions and implications of knowledge and science (understood in the broad sense of "Wissenschaft").

Interdisciplinary research profiles that link to one of the LAS Majors and to empirical research fields at the University will be favored. Particularly desirable are research interests that resonate with the STS professorship at UCF and support the existing cooperation with the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies. A research focus that considers interdisciplinarity and/or a broad approach towards 'Reflections on Science and Knowledge' are welcome.
