The department of philosophy at Leeds is currently advertising for the following 1-year research fellowship position. This is a really nice opportunity to do pretty much full time research for a year and get paid at a good level for doing so, in a very friendly and supportive athmosphere. (Previous holders of this post include Ross Cameron (now continuing lecturer at Leeds) and Stephan Leuenberger (now continuing lecturer at Glasgow).)
School of Humanities – Department of Philosophy
(Full-time, fixed term for 1 year)
This post is partially sponsored by the Centre for Metaphysics and Mind, which is based in the Department. Research interests in metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics or epistemology are desirable. Areas of general research interest should include metaphysics, although research specialisation in this area is not essential. You will be expected to make a substantial contribution to the research life of the Department.
You will have completed, or be close to completing, a doctorate in Philosophy, and will be able to provide evidence of excellent research potential. The post is open to candidates who already hold a postdoctoral award.
