PhD post in philosophy of science at Bielefeld University

Fully funded PhD post in philosophy of science over 3 years available at Bielefeld University :   Applications are invited for a fully funded (65% TV-L 13) PhD-position for three years (fixed term) in philosophy of science at Bielefeld University (beginning April 15, 2019). The post is part of a DFG-funded project on research in the context of practice. The project is supposed to inquire into the practical fruitfulness of heuristic strategies. This question will be addressed by analyzing a pool of practically relevant research projects from the sciences and comparing their goals and accomplishments. The pertinent projects are driven by societal demand but aim to gain scientifically relevant knowl­edge in addition. Deadline for applications: February 21, 2019.   The material to be analyzed is in German. Therefore, command of German is required.
