PostDoc and PhD student positions in the philosophy of causation, Geneva (Switzerland)

Applications are invited for a full-time 4-year postdoc position, as well as a 3-year PhD position, in the context of an interdisciplinary project on Boolean causal data analysis hosted at the Department of Philosophy of the University

The project, which is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, focuses on philosophical and methodological questions in the area of Boolean data analysis, which is currently dominated by the method of Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). In particular, the project aims to explore the theoretical foundations of Boolean data analysis and to bring Coincidence Analysis (CNA)---a close relative of QCA---from the methodological drawing board to effective, flexible, and computer-assisted applicability in real-life contexts of causal discovery.

The deadline for receipt of applications is January 25, 2014. For more information, see http://www.unige.ch/lettres/philo/causation_positions.pdf. Informal inquiries should be directed by e-mail only to Prof. Michael Baumgartner ().
