The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in foundations of physics, contingent upon availability of funding (we will update this page with further information as it becomes available). The position will be supervised by Chris Smeenk, perhaps in collaboration with a colleague at Western. Applicants should intend to pursue research in a field that aligns with his current interests, including philosophy of physics, history and philosophy of space-time theories, as well as connections between physical theory and general questions in methodology, epistemology, and metaphysics.
The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is an independent research institute at one of Canada’s premier research universities. It has close ties to one of Canada’s leading departments of philosophy, and draws faculty members from a variety of fields. Ongoing research focuses on a variety of philosophical problems arising in contemporary physics, biology, cognitive neuroscience, medical science, and health policy.
