PhD position in logic and philosophy

The Intelligent Systems Group, in collaboration with the research group Theoretical Philosophy, at Utrecht University has a vacancy for a PhD-researcher on the project "Logical Models for the Dynamics of Motivational Attitudes".

The PhD-researcher will investigate and develop logical frameworks that model the dynamics of motivation (obligation, intention, desire), and address theoretical issues in terms of these models such as: Under what conditions are intentions reasonably dropped? How are obligations weighed against desires? What are conditional obligations and how should we model them? How are a person's rights and liberties affected by changes in the rights and liberties of others?

The deadline for application is April 3rd, 2007. For more information, see http://www.cs.uu.nl/vacatures/en/62708.html , or contact dr. ir. J.M. Broersen () or dr. R.J. Mastop ().
