Postdoctoral and PhD student position in Bayesian epistemology, Canterbury (U.K.)

The Philosophy Department at the University of Kent has an opening for a Postdoctoral and a PhD student position (1st May 2012 - 30 April 2015), to work with Prof. Jon Williamson on a project to research the relationship between Bayesian epistemology and inductive logic.

The Postdoctoral Research Associate will focus on the development of a particular inductive logic, analysis of its key properties, and the development of computationally tractable methods for performing inferences in the inductive logic. This will require some familiarity with probability and logic. Programming competence would also be desirable.

The PhD student will focus on the question of whether the resulting inductive logic survives a number of philosophical critiques. This will require competence in philosophical argumentation and knowledge of epistemology and elementary logic.

Information about the project and application process is available at http://www.kent.ac.uk/reasoning/obeil.pdf. The deadline for applications is 15th December 2011.
