Call for applications : Two PhD positions in philosophy on the topic of ’self-knowledge’

H2020 ETN Diaphora : Early Stage Researchers in Philosophy

The European Training Network Diaphora, financed by the European Commission under grant agreement H2020-MSCA-ITN-2015-675415 and coordinated by the University of Barcelona, offers 14 3-year PhD positions in philosophy, starting 01.10.2016. Diaphora joins the Universities of Barcelona, Munich, Neuchâtel, Stirling, Stockholm and Edinburgh and the ENS Paris (Institut Jean Nicod) as consortium partners. Each consortium partner offers 2 positions.

Diaphora serves as a research and training platform for collaborative research on the nature of philosophical problems, their resilience, the resources of persistent divergence of expert opinion about them, and their relation to conflicts in the practical sphere. It seeks to address these issues on the basis of first-level research into a number of notoriously hard philosophical problems and foundational issues in semantics and epistemology. Successful applicants are expected to conduct their doctoral research on topics within the remit of the network’s seven workpackages.

The deadline for applications is 08.02.2016.
