The University of Tromsø, Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education, has two Postdoctoral Fellow positions vacant. The positions are attached to the Department of Philosophy, one to the Research Group in Political Philosophy, the other to the Ethics Research Group.
A position of Postdoctoral Fellow is a fixed term position for a period of three years.
The main objective of the appointment as a post-doctoral research fellow is to qualify for work in senior academic position. No one may be appointed to more than one fixed term period as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the same institution.
Further information about the positions is available by contacting the Head of Department, Jan Harald Alnes, 776 46485, jan.harald.alnes@uit.no
Or for the position in
The positions are attached to the Department of Philosophy (IFF).
The Department offers obligatory introduction courses in philosophy for all the students at the University (“Examen Philosophicum” and “Examen Facultatum”) as well as bachelor, master, and PhD programs in philosophy. The Staff at the Department includes 13 researchers and lecturers, 1 professor emeritus, 1 adjunct professor, 4 PhD scholars, and 3 administration employees.
The research and teaching at the Department spread over the various fields of philosophy, such as history of philosophy, ethics, political philosophy, social philosophy, logic, and philosophy of science. The Department´s main field of activity concerns issues of practical philosophy. Consequently there are two research groups, one in Political Philosophy, the other in Ethics.
For the position attached to the Research Group in Political Philosophy(Pluralism, Democracy and Justice), the research project should incorporate and supplement the research taking place in the group. Research group members are working on projects related to issues of
  • fairness and citizenship
  • deliberative democracy and participation
  • pluralism, tolerance, and limits of public argumentation including religious and cultural reasons
  • international politics, human security, human rights, and global justice.
Both historical, analytical, and problem-oriented approaches to political philosophy are relevant to the position.
For more information about the Research Group and its activities see www.uit.no/pdj
For the position attached to the Ethics Research Group, the project is expected to connect to one of the three areas in which the group conducts research: Moral Psychology, Normative Ethics, Theories of Practical Reason and Action Theory.
A project in Moral Psychology would investigate human attitudes, stances, and performances displayed in moral contexts.
A project in Normative Ethics would discuss norms or standards for conduct, and their foundation.
A project contributing to the Theory of Practical Reason and to Action Theory would inquire specifically practical deliberation or reflection and their intricate connection to human agency.
