Position for a Ph.D. student
At the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Center for Logic and Philosophy of
Science, a full-time and fully funded position for a Ph.D. student is
available for a four-year period, starting at the earliest moment (as
early as 1 July 2009).
The topic of the research project, funded by the FWO-Vlaanderen
(Research Foundation Flanders), is: “Argumentative networks: a still
missing integration of philosophical approaches to argumentation with
AI-models, with an application to mathematical practice.” The
intended application is the classification theorem of the finite,
simple groups. We are therefore looking for a student with a
philosophical training, but with the required mathematical background
to handle such proofs.
Please send your CV and a letter of motivation to Jean Paul Van
Bendegem ([email protected]) before June 15, 2009. A more detailed
project description can be found at http://www.vub.ac.be/CLWF/
