Job description



The Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Philosophy will work with the Principal Investigator (PI) Johannes Stern on the European Research Council project 'Truth and Semantics'. The Truth and Semantics (TRUST) ERC Starting Grant project aims to provide a unified perspective on natural language semantics, conceived of as truth-conditional semantics, and the research on the so-called semantic paradoxes in the form of theories of self-applicable truth. The role is offered on an open ended basis with fixed funding for three years. 

The project consists of two interrelated parts.
