The Department of Philosophy, University of Tartu, offers one fully-funded 4-year PhD position (subject to successful evaluation every year according to the university rules). The position is directly associated with and will contribute to the Horizon 2020 project “Responsible Open Science in Europe”.
The focus of the PhD project will broadly be on the disciplinary, conceptual, epistemic and ethical challenges associated with the implementation of Open Science. The project and the supervisors will be located in a philosophy department but the project will have significant interdisciplinary aspects, being conducted at the intersections of philosophy (esp. philosophy of science) and research ethics and likely to combine both theoretical literature-based as well as social research methodology.
A suitable candidate will have previous experience in research fields broadly associated with the topics of open science, research ethics and philosophy of science.
The candidates are expected to have an MA degree or its equivalent. The candidates are asked to prepare a doctoral dissertation project (3–5 pages plus the reference list); a successful project is related to the themes of the ROSiE project, so that the work done as a part of the project and the subsequent independent work could be integrated into the PhD dissertation.
