The Department of Philosophy and History of Ideas at Aarhus University invites applications for a 22-month, fixed-term postdoctoral position. The successful applicant will be part of a project on personal autonomy led by Professor Somogy Varga. The overall aim of the project is to reconsider personal autonomy in light of recent findings in psychology, neuroscience and cognitive science, which seem to indicate that it is often not our values and principles but irrelevant situational features (e.g. bodily experiences) that exert a determining influence on what we think and do. The postdoctoral scholar will be expected to develop their own research within the general framework of the project and assist in organizing workshops, conferences, and other activities.
