The Philosophy and Ethics group at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Innovation Sciences of the Eindhoven University of Technology seeks an assistant professor for a full-time, tenure-track position. Candidates will have earned a PhD in philosophy by the date of application and demonstrate evidence of excellence in both teaching and research. The candidate is expected to contribute to teaching to engineering students (BSc and MSc levels). Areas of specialization should be meta-ethics, normative ethics and/or applied ethics, with specific interests in ethical issues related to health and medical technology, or to energy. Fluency in English is required. Since the Department strives for a better gender balance, women are especially encouraged to apply.
Research in the P&E group takes place at the interface between fundamental philosophical issues and real-world problems that arise from the design, implementation, use and regulation of innovative technologies. In terms of philosophical sub-disciplines, we focus on fundamental and applied issues in ethics, philosophy of science and technology, and epistemology. We work on a variety of application areas, such as artificial intelligence, behavior change, diffusion of scientific knowledge and methods, energy, engineering education, health, and models of cultural and technological change.
