Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ethics of War and Peace

Call for Applications

Type: Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ethics of War and Peace
Institution: Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace,
Stockholm University
Location: Stockholm (Sweden)
Date: 2020–2022
Deadline: 21.2.2020

The Stockholm Centre is looking to deepen and broaden its research
profile, especially with regards to the grounds, scope and nature of
the duty to rescue. This includes, for example, work on our duties to
refugees fleeing war and natural disaster, our duties in the face of
climate change, and the ethics of immigration policy, as well as the
ethics of direct and indirect humanitarian intervention. The
Stockholm Centre aims to reflect the fact that the best work in moral
and political philosophy is informed by research across philosophy,
as well as other cognate disciplines. We thus welcome applications
from researchers from a range of backgrounds (for example, those
working on causation, moral responsibility, rights, collective
action, philosophy of action, authority, as well as those already
working directly on the duty to rescue, war, climate ethics and
immigration). The Fellow will be expected to produce and publish
high-quality analytic, philosophical research, disseminate their
research via international conferences, and publish in high-quality
peer-reviewed journals. To this end, a generous research stipend is
attached to the post.

The Department of Philosophy is Sweden’s largest philosophy
department, and is divided into Theoretical Philosophy and Practical
Philosophy. It has a thriving research community and hosts regular
visiting speakers and conferences. Please note that there is no
requirement to speak Swedish to hold this post. The Fellow will be
expected to undertake research in English. Applicants are expected to
hold a doctoral degree, or be expected to attain such a degree no
later than August 2020.

The start date is negotiable, but will be no later than August 2020.
This is a pensionable position, subject to the favourable conditions
of standard Swedish social benefits, such as paid parental leave. The
Fellow will be expected to reside in Stockholm.

Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from
discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.

Deadline for Applications: 21 February 2020
