Three positions: postdoctoral, PhD student, and Administrative assistant in philosophy of mind, University of Antwerp


Applications are invited for the following three positions at the University of Antwerp: Postdoctoral researcher (2 years), PhD student (4 years), and Administrative assistant (half time, 5 years – I want to fill this position with a research active philosopher). The postdoc/PhD student/admin assistant will be part of Bence Nanay’s ERC-funded project on multimodal mental imagery as well as his larger research group (funded by ERC, FWO, FP7 CIG and BOF UA) and will work with Professor Nanay. There are no teaching obligations. These positions are on a very specific topic funded by the recently awarded ERC project on mental imagery and multimodal perception. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to work on joint projects with Professor Nanay that are related to this topic and the PhD student is expected to write his/her dissertation on a topic related to the ERC project. Background in the empirical sciences is an advantage. Postdoctoral candidates must have a PhD degree in philosophy and PhD candidates must have a masters degree in philosophy. Application deadline: 9 April 2017. Starting date of the position: 1 September 2017.
