I’m delighted to finally announce that I have a job to offer on my five year ARC funded research project in philosophical logic and its applications, “Meaning in Action: new techniques for language, logic and information.” It’s a two year postdoctoral research position, with a little bit of teaching on the side. If you’re interested in philosophical logic, and would like to join the logic group at Melbourne, this is the job for you.

Details are online at the University of Melbourne careers site, and if you applying, you should read the project description so you can address how you would contribute to the research project in your application for the job. To apply, follow the instructions on the University of Melbourne careers site. The closing date for the application is April 19, 2015 (That’s Melbourne time. Don’t be bitten by thinking that midnight April 19 your time is still April 19 our time.) If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get back to me. And let everyone know about this position. I’ll be delighted to have a strong field of applicants. This is an exciting research project, and I’m looking forward to working on it with others.

Update: Here are a few answers to questions I’ve been asked:

  • There is no fixed starting date for the position, though if you can be on board for Semester 2, 2015, that’s a strong plus.

  • The teaching responsibilities for the position are small (at most 14 of the workload), and are to be decided in consultation with me—this part of the role is to give the candidate some teaching experience, and to cover a little of my teaching to free me up to do some more research. Take a look at my teaching over the last few years, and you’ll get an idea of the opportunities for teaching.

If you have other questions about the position, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and if you know some likely candidates, please point them this way.
