Assistant professorship in philosophy of mind, Bochum (Germany)

The Department of Philosophy II at Ruhr Universität Bochum is offering a full-time postdoctoral position (comparable to an assistant professorship), beginning on 1st April 2015, with a limited tenure of three years, renewable for a further three.

The position is installed to foster the research of young postdocs who have already proven to be excellent in publications. It offers the opportunity to develop one's own research project and research profile in the area of philosophy of mind, language or cognition. For the candidate who would later like to continue their career path within the German system, there will be the possibility to reach the degree of a "Habilitation". Beside the scientific aspects of this position, there is also the assignment to teach two courses each semester.

The candidate's research should be connected with some of the current research projects. This includes a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research in the area of philosophy of mind. Part of the job will be also to support the organization of the Center for Mind, Brain and Cognitive Evolution. Preferable but not mandatory for this position is a competency in the area of philosophy of language, e.g. theory of concepts or semantics of singular terms and propositional attitudes. Candidates who have evidently engaged in some in-depth research in both philosophy of mind with very good knowledge in neurosciences and some expertise in experimental philosophy will be of particular interest for this vacancy.

Deadline of application: 15th of December 2014. For more information, see http://www.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/philosophy/staff/newen/download/ or contact Prof. Dr. A. Newen ().
