Description:    

The Department of Philosophy at the National University of Singapore invites applicants for a two-year postdoctoral position, starting in August 2020. The postdoctoral position is affiliated with the project, “Epistemology Beyond Belief.” The post-doctoral position is entirely research; no teaching duties required.

Project Description: Most work in epistemology is focused on belief. But many propositional attitudes other than belief are normatively evaluable (e.g., desires, intentions, regrets). The aim of this project is to investigate the conditions under which various non-doxastic attitudes have some normative status. It will then apply these investigations to debates in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and meta-ethics.

Since the proposed project spans a number of areas of philosophy, we welcome applicants from a range research backgrounds, including - but not limited to - epistemology, cognitive science, philosophy of mind, decision theory, meta-ethics, and philosophy of language.

Application Process: Interested applicants should apply on AcademicJobsOnline, by April 10, 2020. The application should include: - A CV (Required) - A writing sample (Required) - Three letters of recommendation (Recommended) - A cover letter briefly addressing how their present or future research might contribute to the project (Optional)

Deadline: April 10, 2020. We will aim to contact finalists for the position by May 10, 2020.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact either Bob Beddor (phibrs@nus.edu.sg) or Zach Barnett (phizab@nus.edu.sg). For general information about the Philosophy Department at NUS, please visit www.fas.nus.edu.sg/philo/.
