We are looking for candidates whose planned project falls broadly within at least one of the following areas:

Ethics, Social Epistemology, Philosophy of Mind and Psychology, Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Social Science, Social and Political Philosophy.

The candidate’s PhD project will contribute to the SalientSolutions project, which develops and applies ethical and philosophical tools to the threats and societal problems that arise in the context of the novel attention economy and new politics of attention.

We advise candidates to look at our websites. We invite candidates from any of the areas of philosophy listed above. The candidate’s proposed PhD research need not be directly about the topics of the SalientSolutions project. Candidates should, though, in their research description and application letter adress how it may relate to them.

The candidate will be situated in a strong, lively and supportive research environment, both at SalientSolutions and the related ERC-funded GoodAttention project; they will also have the opportunity to be integrated in relevant research networks, such as the Practical Philosophy Group, the Oslo Mind, Language and Epistemology Network,  and the Centre for Philosophy and the Sciences.

The candidate will have the opportunity also to make use of the international advisory board associated with SalientSolutions, for research interactions, research visits, or other forms of collaboration.
