We are pleased to announce an international call for fellowships for the academic year October 2012 - July 2013 aimed at outstanding researchers.
The fellows will be affiliated with

• The Chair of Philosophy of Language and Cognition at the Department of Philosophy II (Professor Markus Werning)
• The Mercator Research Group "Structures of Memory"
• The Center for Mind, Brain and Cognitive Evolution
Applicants must hold a doctoral degree and must have an outstanding publication record in the area of philosophy of mind (eventually bordering philosophy of language or epistemology) and their research attitude should demonstrate a strong connection to the cognitive and neurosciences. Applicants for the senior fellowship are expected to work at least on the level of an associate or advanced assistant professor.
The successful applicant will be given the opportunity to take part in designing a cooperative EEG study on a research question of relevance for the philosophy of mind and language and/or epistemology.
Applications are due by June 1, 2012. Please send your application as well as requests for further information to Prof. Dr. Markus Werning (markus.werning@rub.de).

The fellowship is connected with a monthly stipend of 3000€ for senior and 2000€ for junior fellows. The sums are negotiable and will be supplemented by an extra research budget. We are flexible concerning the exact visiting period. All fellows will be invited to deliver a fellow lecture and will participate in an interdisciplinary research program.

Applications should include:

• A (brief) letter of application including personal information academic background, and research interests (please indicate the title of the fellowship you apply for).
• A brief proposal for a research project (1-2 pages) if the fellowship is planned for at least two months)
• CV including a list of publications, talks, conferences attended and teaching experience.
• One representative article as PDF document.
• Only for applicants for a junior fellowship: one letter of recommendation addressing the applicant's qualification for a research project. This should be send from the referees directly or through a letter service.

All documents of the candidate should be sent electronically. We regret that we will not be able to return any submitted material and send out negative notifications.
