One PhD and two postdoctoral positions in philosophy of science (including formal epistemology), Cambridge (England)

Deadline: Thursday 8 February 2018

Centre for Research in Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASH) is seeking to appoint two postdoctoral Research Associates to join the ERC-funded project, Qualitative and Quantitative Social Science: Unifying the Logic of Causal Inference, led by Dr. Christopher Clarke. This five-year project (2017-2022) examines the epistemological challenges that arise when social scientists investigate the causes and effects of social phenomena.

Prof. Clarke is looking to recruit excellent candidates in the fields of philosophy of science (including formal epistemology) or the philosophy of social science (including the philosophy of gender and the philosophy of race very broadly construed). These are full-time research, faculty-level positions, each lasting over three years, with the positions beginning this July or September 2018. The positions are also suitable for PhD candidates who will have submitted their dissertation by September 2018.

There is also a 4 year fellowship attached to the project to fully fund a PhD student from the beginning to the end of their PhD studies at Erasmus University Rotterdam, which is also hosting his grant. The PhD student will work on a topic in the philosophy of social sciences relating to the distinction between qualitative and quantitative evidence.
