The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) seeks applications for three 3-year doctoral fellowships starting on October 1, 2017. (A later starting date is possible.) We are especially interested in candidates who work in the field of mathematical philosophy with a focus on philosophical logic (broadly construed, including philosophy and foundations of mathematics, semantics, formal philosophy of language, inductive logic and foundations of probability, and more).
Candidates who have not finished their MA at the time of the
application deadline have to provide evidence that they will have their
MA in hand at the time the fellowship starts. Applications (including a
cover letter that addresses, amongst others, one's academic background,
research interests and the proposed starting date, a CV, a list of
publications (if applicable), a sample of written work of no more than
3000 words, and a description of the planned PhD-project of about 2000
words) should be sent by email (in one PDF document) to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15, 2017.
Hard copy applications are not accepted. Additionally, one confidential
letter of reference addressing the applicant's qualifications for

The MCMP hosts a vibrant research community of faculty, postdoctoral
fellows, doctoral fellows, master students, and visiting fellows. It
organizes at least two weekly colloquia and a weekly internal
work-in-progress seminar, as well as various other activities such as
workshops, conferences, summer schools, and reading groups. The
successful candidates will partake in the MCMP's academic activities and
enjoy its administrative facilities and support. The official language
at the MCMP is English and fluency in German is not mandatory.
We especially encourage female scholars to apply. The LMU in general,
and the MCMP in particular, endeavor to raise the percentage of women
among its academic personnel. Furthermore, given equal qualification,
preference will be given to candidates with disabilities.
The fellowships are remunerated with 1.468 €/month (paid out without
deductions for tax and social security). The MCMP is able to support
fellows concerning expenses for professional traveling.
