Permanent Senior Research Position in Philosophy of Social Sciences

Location: CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique), France

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

This message is to inform you about a job opportunity in the domain of Philosophy of Social Sciences. The I.H.P.S.T. is ready to support the application of suitable candidates in the process, and to incorporate the elected person.

The profile is: Strategic Interaction and Collective Norms It would be suitable for a confirmed scholar, dedicated to the following topics: epistemic conditions of coordination (common knowledge a.s.o.), emergence of norms (as studied in evolutionary game theory), normative economics. Competence in decision theory, game theory and formal tools of economic modelization is required. Suitable candidates ought to be willing to work in a philosophical research environment.

The job is a permanent senior research position ("Research Director") at CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, France). For most purposes, the position is on a par with full university professorship and it involves no compulsory teaching (although it is compatible with some teaching at intermediate or advanced level). Fluency in French language is of course warmly wished, but not really compulsory given the nature of the position (research, not teaching).

The interest of the I.H.P.S.T. (which is a common venture of CNRS, Paris-1 University and Ecole Normale Supérieure) for this announcement comes from our increasing emphasis on the philosophy and methodology of social science, exemplified by our recent involvement in the elaboration of a "Research Training Network" proposition to the European Commission (with various teams in mathematics, economics, biology, psychology and philosophy) on the theme "Information, strategy, and decision". Other relevant fields of research at the IHPST are modelization of bounded rationality and interface between logic and game theory.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if this opportunity can be of interest to one of your colleagues.

Sincerely yours, JD

Jacques Dubucs
