Canada Research Chair in Logic and the Philosophy of Science -- Calgary

Richard Zach draws my attention to a very attractive position that the Calgary Philosophy Department is advertising at the moment: a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Logic and the Philosophy of Science. It is a research-intensive, tenured position, with a very low teaching load, for those keen on developing their own long-term research program. In other words, it is a very attractive position, at a department that is already very strong in logic and related areas. The official announcement with further details can be found below.

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Calgary invites applications and nominations for a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Logic and the Philosophy of Science. The Canada Research Chairs program has been established by the Government of Canada to enable Canadian universities to foster excellence in research and teaching. Further information on the program is available on the CRC website at www.chairs.gc.ca.

We are seeking an established scholar and a leader in any area of logic or the philosophy of science.
