Functieomschrijving

We are seeking a candidate for a PhD project on the epistemic and ethical dimensions of decision making under radical uncertainty, taking the recent COVID-19 crisis as our major case study. The position is located at the Faculty of Philosophy but the project is part of a collaboration between sociologists and philosophers working on policy making. The PhD candidate will work on a philosophical project that intersects with advanced decision theory and the sociological study of collective risk perception and decision making.

See the link below for a further description of the project:
https://www.scoop-program.org/program-projects/717-10-4-cooperation-in-situations-of-radical-uncertainty

The project is part of the transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research programme SCOOP: Roadmaps to Resilient Societies (see: http://www.scoop-program.org ). SCOOP is a research and training centre dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of sustainable cooperation as a key feature of resilient societies. SCOOP brings together researchers of the University of Groningen, Utrecht University, VU Amsterdam, Erasmus University Rotterdam, and Radboud University Nijmegen.

The PhD student will participate in the SCOOP PhD training program, see: https://www.scoop-program.org/training-program-towards-transdisciplinarity

Functie-eisen

We are looking for candidates who have finished, or are close to finishing, a master’s degree in philosophy, or else in decision theory or similar. Additionally, we require that candidates have:

• excellent written and verbal communication skills in English
• affinity with formal models of radical uncertainty and collective decision making
• an interest in integrating insights from empirical and computational sociology into a philosophical framework
• eagerness to learn to work in an interdisciplinary research team and to conduct interdisciplinary research in the SCOOP programme
• a strong motivation for doing a PhD.

Conditions

We offer you in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities:

• a gross salary of € 2,395 gross per month in the first year to a maximum of € 3,061 gross per month in the final year (salary scale PhD), based on a full-time position (1.0 FTE)
• a holiday allowance of 8% gross annual income and a 8.3% year-end bonus
• a position for four years (full time). Each successful candidate will first be offered a temporary position of one year with the option of renewal for another three years. Prolongation of the contract is contingent on sufficient progress in the first year to indicate that a successful completion of the PhD thesis within the contract period is to be expected. A PhD training programme is part of the agreement and the successful candidate will be enrolled in the Graduate School of the Faculty.

The preferred start date is between 1 October and 1 December 2021.
