  • Postdoctoral fellowship in paraconsistent computability theory, Dunedin & Christchurch (New Zealand)

    Deadline: Friday 2 December 2022

    A Postdoctoral Fellow is being seeked to work as part of the project “Paraconsistent Computability Theory” supported by the Marsden Fund, Royal Society of New Zealand. The position is jointly funded and supervised by the University of Otago (Dunedin) and the University of Canterbury (Christchurch), in New Zealand’s South Island. The project is to develop the logical and conceptual foundations of computability theory using paraconsistent logic. The project leaders are Associate Professor Zach Weber (Otago) and Distinguished Professor Jack Copeland (Canterbury).

    This is a full-time (1FTE), fixed-term position for three years. Start date is negotiable with the candidate. Applications will be considered individually on receipt and this vacancy will close as soon as the position is filled. The successful applicant will contribute to the planning, research, writing, and publication of results, and will have or be near completion of a PhD in philosophy – especially logic – or computer science or mathematics, or another related field, and will have expertise in (or be prepared to develop expertise in) paraconsistent logic, computability theory, and some relevant topics in the foundations of physics. The successful applicant will teach one class per year at the University of Otago.

  • Assistant Professorship (tenure-track) in Maths, Physics, or Philosophy, Orange CA (U.S.A.)

    Deadline: Friday 7 October 2022

    As part of an initiative to hire leading research scientists with a strong commitment to promoting the success of underrepresented students in the sciences, the Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University announces a tenure track faculty position, at the rank of Assistant Professor, effective August 2023 in the discipline of Mathematics, Physics, or Philosophy.

    Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a field relevant to Mathematics, Physics, or Philosophy, and have outstanding records of scholarly publications, research support, and a history of commitment to the mentorship of students from underrepresented and underserved populations. The successful candidate will be expected to continue their active research program and mentoring activities, as well as help design, implement, and assess innovative new programs that lead to demonstrable advances in diversity, equity, and inclusion for our students, faculty, and staff.
