PhD student position on professionalisation of science, Leuven (Belgium)

Deadline: Friday 31 July 2020

We are looking for a PhD candidate to conduct research on a project recently funded by the Research Fund Flanders (FWO), titled 'The Professionalization of Science: Analysis and Normative Implications'.

In this project we aim at understanding what precisely professionalization and professionalism are, and to what extent they are appropriate for scientific research. While the topic of the project seems very specific, it in fact concerns science & values in the broadest sense, and is situated at the intersection between philosophy of science and applied ethics.

You will conduct PhD research under the supervision of Professors Kris Dierickx, and Hugh Desmond. You will be based at the Centre for Biomedical Ethics and Law at the KU Leuven, an interdisciplinary centre that performs research on ethical and societal issues.

For more information, see https://www.kuleuven.be/personeel/jobsite/jobs/55689213 or contact Kris Dierickx at , or Hugh Desmond at .
