PhD student position "Argumentative Networks", Brussels (Belgium)

At the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science, a full-time and fully funded position for a Ph.D. student is available for a four-year period, starting at the earliest moment (as early as 1 July 2009).

The topic of the research project, funded by the FWO-Vlaanderen (Research Foundation Flanders), is: "Argumentative networks: a still missing integration of philosophical approaches to argumentation with AI-models, with an application to mathematical practice." The intended application is the classification theorem of the finite, simple groups. We are therefore looking for a student with a philosophical training, but with the required mathematical background to handle such proofs.

Please send your CV and a letter of motivation to Jean Paul Van Bendegem () before June 15, 2009. A more detailed project description can be found at http://www.vub.ac.be/CLWF/activities/argumentativenetworks.pdf
