Doctoral position in practical philosophy with a focus on bioethics, antibiotic resistance and the environment
The Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science at the Faculty of Arts has about 100 staff members and a student body corresponding to about 350 full-time equivalents. It is home to a large number of national and international research projects and offers courses and degree programs for philosophers, logicians, linguists, language technologists, theorists of science, historians of philosophy, philologists and philosophy teachers. The Department also arranges doctoral education and development work in its various academic domains.
Practical philosophy at the Department of philosophy, linguistics and theory of science comprises comprehensive research activities across basic and applied philosophy, and a large active group of doctoral candidates of similar scope. The Gothenburg practical philosophy research environment is particularly strong in applied ethics and political philosophy, focusing on topics in bioethics, business- and financial ethics, global ethics and the ethics of technology. Two full professors, two senior lecturers and several doctoral candidates and young researchers are active in this area.
The present position is funded by the project EDAR, a collaboration between the universities of Gothenburg, Princeton and Umeå, supported by the Swedish Research Council to develop a multidisciplinary research environment on the environmental dimensions of antibiotic resistance. For this reason, while the planned doctoral thesis will be in practical philosophy, it must fit the area, as well as the multidisciplinary nature, of EDAR. EDAR is directed by Joakim Larsson, scientific director of CARe, and the bioethical research is led by Erik Malmqvist and Christian Munthe, who will supervise the successful candidate.
