The Carnegie Mellon University Department of Philosophy invites applications for the Herbert Simon Fellowship in Scientific Philosophy. We are seeking applications from scholars working in logic or philosophy of mathematics. Any of the following areas are particularly welcome: proof theory, category theory, formal verification, automated reasoning, or history or philosophy of mathematics. The Fellowship is intended primarily for those who have recently received doctorates, including scholars with a continuing faculty appointment elsewhere. The Fellowship has a tenure of two years (non-renewable), with teaching duties of 2 courses/year, one of which should be a research seminar in the Fellow’s specialty. Appointments of one year are possible for applicants with a continuing faculty appointment elsewhere. Residence in Pittsburgh is expected. Applications (including a statement of purpose, CV, at least one writing sample and two letters of reference) may be sent to: The Philosophy Department; Carnegie Mellon University; Pittsburgh PA 15213. Attention: Simon Fellowship Committee. Electronic applications, preferably in pdf format enclosed as attachments, are welcome and indeed preferred. Send email to: The deadline for application is December 1, 2010.
