The Department of Philosophy and the Centre for the Study of Social Action (CSSA) at the University of Milan are delighted to announce the opening of a post-doctoral position on Acting Together: Coordination, Collective Goal, and Cooperation. [READMORE]The project, which is jointly led by Professors Hykel Hosni and Corrado Sinigaglia, spans formal and experimental methods and will put particular emphasis on minimalist approaches to coordination, shared agency, and cooperation.

Applicants are expected to have a strong inclination for interdisciplinary work and the potential for excellence in research and publications. There are no restrictions on the applicants’ Phd background, provided it’s relevant to the topic of the project. The appointment will be made initially for two years and it will be renewed for another two years subject to funding. After tax salary will be in the region of 20.000 Euros per year.

The postdoctoral fellow will be a member of the CSSA and will participate in the wider research community of the Department of Philosophy, the second largest in the country.

The deadline for application is April 26th 2016. We refer potential applicants to the official call for application available here.
