Opportunity Cover Image - 5 Doctoral Fellowships 2020 at the Leibniz University Hannover and Bielefeld University, Germany

Leibniz University Hannover and Bielefeld University jointly seek to fill 5 Doctoral Candidate Positions (65% TV-L 13) in Ethics of Science and/or Philosophy of Science starting April 1, 2020, within the Graduiertenkolleg (research training group) GRK 2073 “Integrating Ethics and Epistemology of Scientific Research”.

The appointment will be for 3 years. The positions will be filled as 65% Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in positions on salary scale TV-L 13. (This amounts to a monthly net salary roughly between 1600 and 1750 €, plus benefits such as health insurance.) Three of the positions are expected to be located at Leibniz University Hannover and the other two at Bielefeld University.

GRK 2073 “Integrating Ethics and Epistemology of Scientific Research” is a research training group that is established as a joint project by Leibniz University Hannover and Bielefeld University. It is funded by the German national funding agency (DFG). Its research program aims at bridging the gap between practice and theory in the philosophical investigation of scientific research in two ways: firstly, it examines new connections between practical philosophy of science (ethics of science, political philosophy of science) and theoretical philosophy of science (epistemology, metaphysics); secondly, it analyzes relevant links between the material culture of the sciences (objects, equipment, experiments, practices) and the cognitive dimension of the sciences (theories, hypotheses, discourses, models). The working language of GRK 2073 is English.

Applicants should be fluent in English and able to demonstrate an interest in at least one of the two areas: practical philosophy of science (i.e., ethics and/or political philosophy of science) or theoretical philosophy of science (epistemology and/or metaphysics of science). They must hold a pertinent university degree (typically an MA degree in Philosophy or HPS) and must be eligible to enroll as doctoral students in Philosophy at Leibniz University Hannover or Bielefeld University. They need to specify a dissertation project that fits the aims of the research program of GRK 2073 as described above.

The obligations of each holder of one of the advertised positions will be to conduct research on a dissertation project that contributes to the research program of GRK 2073 and to participate in the training activities that are specified by the qualification program. Holders of the positions must enroll as doctoral students in philosophy at Leibniz University Hannover or Bielefeld University. It is expected that they take residence in the region of their respective campus.
