Postdoctoral Fellowships enable philosophers of science within five years of their doctorates to spend a two-term academic year working in the Center for Philosophy of Science on a project in philosophy of science that they nominate. Two Postdoctoral Fellowships are offered each year.
The Center encourages applications from assistant professors in the early stages of their careers as well as from scholars with newly awarded doctorates. We particularly welcome submissions from members of underrepresented groups.
Postdoctoral Fellows have no formal duties. They are expected to reside in Pittsburgh, to undertake research full time in an office in the Center for Philosophy of Science, and to participate in the life of the Center by attending and giving talks, contributing to discussion groups, etc.
Many Fellows are pleasantly surprised by the City of Pittsburgh and enjoy exploring it and the surrounding countryside.
