Post-doc: Philosophy of Science, University of Johannesburg

The University of Johannesburg seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Philosophy. Any research area will be considered, but it is hoped that the Fellow will work with Dr Alex Broadbent on issues in the philosophy of science broadly construed, and in particular issues related to epidemiology, public health, causation, explanation or prediction (although unconceived alternatives will be considered). The Fellow will be asked to teach one Honours course for one term, out of four in our academic calendar. (This is a light commitment: Honours is a small group (5-10) course for first year postgraduates, whose content usually reflects the interests of the person teaching it.) Applicants should email two pieces of written work of around 8-10k words (e.g. publications, work under review, thesis chapters) along with a CV and covering letter to Dr Alex Broadbent at by 30 June 2012. Doctorate must be in hand at time of commencement. Duration is one year in the first instance, with the possibility of another year, depending on publication performance.
