Four PhD studentships in mathematical philosophy, Munich, Germany

Four doctoral fellowships are being advertised at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP). The MCMP, which is devoted to applications of logical and mathematical methods in philosophy, has recently been established at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU) based on generous support by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Directed by Professor Hannes Leitgeb, the Center hosts a vibrant research community of university faculty, postdoctoral fellows, doctoral fellows, and visiting fellows.

The successful applicants, who will become PhD students at the LMU, are supposed to use logical and mathematical methods in their philosophical work, and/or to reflect on these methods philosophically. PhD projects can, of course, be carried out in logic or philosophy of mathematics, but they are not restricted to these fields -- for instance, work in epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, metaphysics, moral philosophy, and so forth are equally encouraged, as long as formal methods play a significant role in the corresponding research projects.

Applications are due by March 20th, 2011. >For more information, see http://www.philosophie.uni-muenchen.de/lehreinheiten/logik_sprachphil/ or contact Barbara Poehlmann at .
