Postdoctoral position on quantitative & qualitative approximations of reasoning, Milan (Italy)

Deadline: Thursday 3 September 2020

The Logic Group is thrilled to advertise a postdoc position (one year, renewable) on the project “Quantitative and qualitative approximations of reasoning”.The goal of the project is to extend Depth-Bounded Logics
– on the lines of the recent results obtained by the group on the
Depth-bounded approximation of probability  and belief functions
– with qualitative aspects (modal, dynamic, and multiagent) for reasoning about knowledge, in particular under negative trust and trustworthiness
– and combining the two.

The ideal applicant will have (or have submitted at the time of applying) a strong PhD in Logic, either in computer science, mathematics or philosophy. Very good knowledge of either probability- or epistemic logics is mandatory. Good command of both is an advantage. The selected candidate will join a thriving research group based at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan, and will be working under the joint supervision of Marcello D’Agostino, Hykel Hosni and Giuseppe Primiero.
