One or Two Postdoctoral
Fellowships in Philosophy of Perception at the University of Antwerp
are invited for one or two postdoctoral fellowships at the University of
Antwerp. The postdoc(s) will be part of Bence Nanay’s research group
(funded by an FWO, an FP7 CIG and a BOF UA grant) and will work with
Professor Nanay. The length of the fellowship is two
years. The pay is (for US and UK standards) very generous. Postdoctoral
researchers in Belgium are public employees with very generous benefits.
Antwerp is commutable from a number of European cities, including Paris,
London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Cologne. The research group has three postdocs at the moment.
is no teaching or service obligation or really any obligation at all except for
working on joint projects with Professor Nanay (and
other members of the research group). So the candidate should have a
significant overlap of research interests with Nanay
(and the research group).
specific call for postdocs is restricted to
philosophers of perception working in the analytic tradition and candidates are
encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org
if they have doubts about whether their profile matches this call. There may be
other, more indirect, funding schemes for those who are not strictly speaking
analytic philosophers of perception. Candidates must have a PhD degree in
philosophy. Some background in psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience or primatology is a significant plus.
send a cv, a max 5000 word writing sample and a max
1-page outline of what joint papers/projects the candidate envisages to
write/have with the primary investigator to email@example.com
and have two letters of reference sent to the same email address. Please write
‘Postdoc: P&A’ in the subject line of any email
