2 Postdoctoral Fellowships and 1 Assistant Professorship in Mathematical Philosophy, Munich

The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is advertising two postdoctoral fellowships. The postdoctoral stipends are for three years, and they should be taken up by October 1st 2012 (although there is some flexibility on that side). The successful candidate will partake in all of the Center's academic activities and enjoy its administrative facilities and financial support.

The MCMP is also seeking applications for an Assistant Professorship in Mathematical Philosophy. The position, which is to start from October 1st 2012, is for three years with the possibility of extension. Technically, it is a so-called 'Akademische Ratsstelle auf Zeit' in the Bavarian university system, which means basically that one has the rights and perks of a civil servant.

The MCMP, which is devoted to applications of logical and mathematical methods in philosophy, was established in 2010 at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU) based on generous support by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Directed by Professor Hannes Leitgeb, the Center hosts a vibrant research community of university faculty, postdoctoral fellows, doctoral fellows, and visiting fellows. The Center organizes at least two weekly colloquia in Mathematical Philosophy and a weekly internal a work-in-progress seminar, as well as various other activities such as workshops, conferences, reading groups, and the like.

Deadline: 23 April 2012. For more information, see http://www.mcmp.philosophie.uni-muenchen.de/open_pos/
