Two Assistant Professorships in Logic at Hannes Leitgeb's Group in Munich

These two Assistant Professorships in philosophy have just been advertised
at LMU Munich (see below). The deadline for applications is July 2nd, 2010. (German language skills are not mandatory.) Soon also several postdoctoral and doctoral positions in philosophy (at the new Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy) will also be advertised.

(1) Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich is seeking applications for an
Assistant Professorship in Logic and Philosophy of Language
at the Chair for Logic and Philosophy of Language (Professor Hannes
Leitgeb) at the Faculty for Philosophy, Philosophy of Science and the Study
of Religion. The position, which is to start from October 1st 2010, is for
three years with the possibility of extension. Technically, it is a
so-called ‘Akademische Ratsstelle auf Zeit’ in the Bavarian university
system, which means basically that one has the rights and perks of a civil
servant.

The appointee will be expected (i) to do research in logic and philosophy
of language, (ii) to teach five hours a week in these or in related areas,
and (iii) to contribute to the new Munich Center for Mathematical
Philosophy (MCMP) which is about to be founded at the LMU. The successful
candidate will have (iv) a PhD in philosophy or logic, and (v) teaching
experience in philosophy or logic.

The appointment will be made within the German A13 salary scheme. More
information on this position can be found at:

http://www.uni-muenchen.de/aktuelles/stellenangebote/wissenschaft/20100617151216.html

Women are currently underrepresented in the Faculty, therefore we
particularly welcome applications for this post from suitably qualified
female candidates. Given equal qualification, severely physically
challenged individuals will be preferred.

Applications (including CV, certificates, list of publications) should be
sent to

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Fakultät für Philosophie, Wissenschaftstheorie und Religionswissenschaft
Geschäftsstelle
Hauspost Fach 41
Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1

LogBlog Has Moved!

Two months ago, Blogger turned off FTP publishing on blogs, which meant I couldn’t update LogBlog anymore.  It’s taken a while, but the blog has now moved.  Well, I managed to import all the old posts into Drupal, the CMS we use at the University of Calgary and which generates the rest of my site.  I still need to fix the URLs, add archive pages, get the blogroll to display, etc., but at least I can post again.  Your feed reader should be automatically redirected to the new feed, but if it isn’t, here’s the URL:

If you find any broken links, disappeared images, commenting weirdness, etc., do let me know!

If you see this, I probably don’t have to tell you the new URL for the mainpag, but in any case, here it is:
