Integrating Ethics and Epistemology of Scientific Research is a research training group that is established as a joint project by Leibniz Universität Hannover and Bielefeld University. It is funded by the German national funding agency (DFG). Its research program aims at bridging the gap between practice and theory in the philosophical investigation of scientific research in two ways: firstly, it examines new connections between practical philosophy of science (ethics of science, political philosophy of science) and theoretical philosophy of science (epistemology, metaphysics); secondly, it analyzes relevant links between the material culture of the sciences (objects, equipment, experiments, practices) and the cognitive dimension of the sciences (theories, hypotheses, discourses, models). The working language of GRK 2073 is English.
- Applicants should be fluent in English
- Able to demonstrate an interest in at least one of the two areas: practical philosophy of science (i.e., ethics and/or political philosophy of science) or theoretical philosophy of science (epistemology and/or metaphysics of science).
- They must hold a pertinent university degree (typically an MA degree in Philosophy or HPS) and must be eligible to enroll as doctoral students in Philosophy
- They need to specify a dissertation project that fits the aims of the research program of GRK 2073 as described above.
