Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Philosophy (New Insights and Directions for Religious Epistemology) (two positions)

Faculty of Philosophy
University of Oxford

Grade 7: £29,837

Applications are invited for two full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellows, to work on the project New Insights and Directions for Religious Epistemology , which is hosted by the Faculty of Philosophy, and supported by the John Templeton Foundation. The Fellowships are fixed-term for the period 1 September 2014 to 30 September 2015. The salary will be at grade 7 on the University scale: £29,837 per annum.

The postholders will occupy an office in Radcliffe Humanities Woodstock Road, Oxford.

The Project, valued at £1.3million and directed by Professor John Hawthorne, has been made possible by the generous support of the John Templeton Foundation. It aims to bring recent developments in epistemology to bear on topics in the philosophy of religion in a way that will open up new channels of research in religious epistemology. The project is centred around, but not limited to, interesting and novel applications developing out of six main topics: (i) contextualism and pragmatic encroachment; (ii) safety and knowledge; (iii) epistemic defeat; (iv) testimony; (v) formal epistemology; and (vi) etiology of belief.

You must demonstrate expertise in epistemology and/or philosophy of religion, with evidence of the ability to undertake significant research in philosophy which will contribute to the aims of the project. It is expected that the successful candidates will author several publications as a direct consequence of their involvement with the project. You must hold a Bachelor/Masterís degree and have completed or be close to the completion of a PhD.

You will work under the guidance of the Director of the Project, Professor John Hawthorne, and will also be expected to work in collaboration with other members of the Projectís team and with external collaborators.
