EURiCA Doctoral Studentship in Philosophy of Astrobiology
The Department of Philosophy at Durham University invites applications for a doctoral studentship in philosophy of science, specifically in philosophy of astrobiology, commencing in the academic year 2021/22.
The studentship has been created thanks to the generous support of the Leverhulme Trust, in association with the EURiCA Project: ‘Exploring Uncertainty and Risk in Contemporary Astrobiology’, running from 2021-24. The successful candidate would be joint-supervised by philosophers and scientists. Whilst the project is primarily of a philosophical nature, it would be very closely linked to science-as-practiced, and the candidate would undertake hands-on lab work on potential biosignature samples at the UK Centre for Astrobiology in Edinburgh.
