The following ad will appear in the November 10 issue of Jobs for Philosophers:
The Philosophy Program, Research School of Social Sciences, seeks to appoint one or more research-only Postdoctoral/Research Fellows (Level A/B). The fellows will be appointed in association with Professor David Chalmers' Federation Fellowship project on 'The Contents of Consciousness', and/or in association with other projects in the Program in related areas. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in philosophy or a related discipline prior to appointment, and should specialize in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science, the philosophy of language, metaphysics, and/or epistemology. Appointment will be for up to three years. The Program will consider proposals to fill the positions by secondment, and particularly welcomes applications from women. Send applications (reference: SS3074) to: The Staffing Recruitment Officer, Chancelry 10A, Australian National University, Canberra ACT 0200, Australia, or by e-mail (Word, rtf, or pdf format) to email@example.com. Full details are available at http://consc.net/fellows.html. Closing date: 1 December, 2005.
The official ANU website has full formal details. As with last year, I've posted online a few informal comments for potential applicants for the position. Particularly worth noting among the informal comments is that it is possible that applicants for this position may also be considered for two other post-doctoral fellowships in the RSSS philosophy program, one in the philosophy of mind and one in epistemology. (Funding for these fellowships was just announced this week, too late to put an ad into JFP.) So that's all the more reason to apply.
