The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is inviting applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships. Up to three fellowships will be offered, the total number depending on budgetary considerations. While we welcome applicants in all areas of research pursued by Institute faculty, this year we are prioritizing applicants with research interests in the following areas:
- philosophy of science in practice and social epistemology (experience using ethnographic and qualitative methods to understand scientific practice a plus)
- public health ethics, specifically related to pandemics (e.g., ethics of legal restrictions, allocation of scarce resources, etc.)
- artificial intelligence and social justice (especially epistemic justice)
- foundations of physics
An additional position, in Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, is also open at this time. Please see details on that separate call for applications.
The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is situated in one of Canada’s leading departments of philosophy. It brings together philosophers and scientists to work on problems of social significance. Ongoing research focuses on a variety of philosophical problems arising in contemporary physics, biology, cognitive neuroscience, medical science, artificial intelligence, public health policy, and more.
