JOB: Assistant Professor, Philosophy of Science, Tilburg University
The philosophy department at Tilburg University (The Netherlands) seeks to appoint an outstanding candidate in philosophy of science, starting August 1, 2016. The deadline for applications is April, 22, 2016.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD in philosophy with a research specialization in philosophy of science. He/she will have a track record of publications in leading international journals or show the capability of developing such a record early in his or her career. The successful candidate is expected to apply regularly for external research funding.
Experience of teaching at university level is necessary. An ability to teach other subjects besides philosophy of science, such as logic and history of modern philosophy, is highly desirable. A significant proportion of the courses to teach is service teaching in the Tilburg School of Economics and Management, and the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences. The candidate will therefore have to demonstrate an aptitude for teaching philosophy to students with little or no background in philosophy.
The department of philosophy at Tilburg University is an internationally oriented and pluralist department whose core research strength is in the Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS). The successful candidate would become a member of TiLPS and be expected to contribute to the center’s activities. A second group, Philosophy of Man and Society, aims both at highly ranked scientific publications and at a fruitful dialogue between philosophy and society. Taking as its starting point the motto of Tilburg University: ‘Understanding Society’, philosophical research at Tilburg is often done in an interdisciplinary framework.
Given that Tilburg School of Humanities aims to increase the proportion of female employees, applications from women are particularly welcome.
For inquiries about the position, please contact the Head of the Department of Philosophy, Dr. Frans van Peperstraten, at email@example.com
The candidate should submit the following documents and merge them into one pdf file: a letter of motivation, a CV, a brief teaching dossier, a one page outline of his/her research plans, a recent research publication, and the names and contact information for two referees.
Shortlisted candidates will be informed by April, 30. Interviews and test classes will be held at some day in May. Decisions will be announced shortly thereafter.
The only way to apply is online by following this link:
