Se han anunciado recientemente becas postdoctorales para investigar en ética animal en dos universidades punteras, en Alemania y Canadá. Son dos oportunidades muy interesantes. Los plazos para participar terminan en breve. A continuación va la información con la convocatoria original de ambas.
The opening is for a two year, full-time postdoctoral position within a larger research project funded by the ERC and devoted to Philosophy of Animals in the Islamic World. Candidates should have expertise in contemporary ethics as it bears on non-human animals, and be prepared to work collaboratively with team members who are addressing questions about animal cognition and the ethical treatment of animals in a historical context. Candidates for this position are not, however, expected to have expertise relevant to Islamic philosophy and do not need any special linguistic competence (in Arabic, Persian, etc.); only expertise in contemporary animal ethics is required.
Please send your application with the usual documents (including CV, transcripts, diplomas, list of publications and courses taught), as well as a brief description of your expertise as relevant to the theme of the project, either by email as a PDF file (max. 5 MB) or by post by January 7, 2019 to the following address. LMU München Lehrstuhl für Spätantike und Arabische Philosophie Prof. Dr. Peter Adamson Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1 80539 München Germany E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Department of Philosophy at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Animal Studies. This is a one-year non-renewable 12-month fellowship, supporting a researcher with demonstrated expertise in animal ethics, law and public policy. While we interpret animal ethics, law and public policy broadly, and welcome applications from various disciplines that study human-animal relations including political science, law, philosophy, sociology, geography, and environmental studies, we are particularly interested in research that critically examines the moral, legal and political dimensions of how human-animal relations are governed. The recipient of the Fellowship is expected to be actively involved in the day-to-day life of the Department, to teach a University course in animal ethics, to participate in the activities of our animal studies research group, and to help organize a workshop or conference in the field. The Fellow will work under the supervision of Prof. Will Kymlicka. The 2019-20 fellowship will start on July 1, 2019. Applicants must have submitted their doctoral dissertation by that date, and must be within five years of having received their doctorate. The salary for the postdoctoral fellowship will be $40,000, which includes remuneration for teaching a half-course in animal ethics or a cognate subject. Applications are due by February 1st, 2019.
