Applications are invited for a full-time Research Fellow for the Roots of Responsibility ERC project, at the Department of Philosophy, UCL, to conduct research in a subject relevant to the project.
Research will include producing publications to be submitted to journals, as book chapters and as internal reports. The Fellow will also participate in related activities, such as contributing new ideas for research projects, assisting in shaping the research agenda, and both attending and presenting at conferences and research workshops belonging to the Roots of Responsibility ERC project.
The post is fixed-term for two years commencing from 1 October 2019 in the first instance.
The Fellowship offers early career researchers the opportunity to participate in a large-scale and interdisciplinary research project, and to develop their research within one of the world’s leading universities.
Roots of Responsibility: Metaphysics, Humanity, and Society is a five-year, €2.1 million project, funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (project ID: 789270). The aim of the project is to advance traditional philosophical debates about responsibility and free will by exploring the network of human capacities responsibility involves and the social, institutional and interpersonal contexts in which questions about responsibility arise.
The successful candidate will be required to conduct research of the highest quality in a subject relevant to the Roots of Responsibility ERC project.
The post holder is required to have received the degree of PhD (or equivalent), or be close to completion. Also essential are excellent research skills, a well-developed plan for post-doctoral research and the willingness to contribute to the intellectual life of the Roots of Responsibility ERC project, and the Department of Philosophy, UCL.
This position is not intended for those who have already had another comparable post-doctoral appointment.
