Two Year Post-Doctoral Fellowship

Anyone want a post-doc? I got this in an email. (I am tempted to apply myself.) 

Two Year Post-Doctoral Fellowship
Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace

Reference number SU FV-0170-14. Deadline for applications: March 10, 2014.

The Post-Doctoral Fellow will be attached to the Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace (SCEWP), which is funded by the Wallenberg Foundation and part of the Department of Philosophy at Stockholm University. The Centre is directed by Dr. Helen Frowe, and aims to produce cutting-edge research in the ethics of war, foster international collaboration with scholars, policy-makers and military practitioners and improve public and policy debates concerning the ethics of war and peace. The Department of Philosophy is Sweden’s largest philosophy department, and is divided into Theoretical Philosophy and Practical Philosophy. It has a thriving research community and hosts regular visiting speakers and conferences. You can find more information about the department here:


The Fellow will be expected to produce and publish high-quality research within the Centre’s remit of the ethics of war and peace. This could include (but is not limited to): humanitarian intervention, national-defence, theoretical approaches to war (such as pacifism or collectivism), terrorism, civil war, revolution, war crimes, crimes against humanity, issues within jus ad bellum and jus in bello, the moral status of combatants and non-combatants, war and technology, reconstruction and reconciliation, the notion of ‘just peace’, and legitimate authority. He or she will be expected to disseminate his or her research via international conferences. To this end, a generous research stipend is attached to the post.

The Fellow will also undertake administrative work related to the running of the Centre, such as organising conferences and undertaking editing work, and will be expected to attend and participate in the Centre’s various events. He or she may engage in some teaching at graduate and undergraduate levels. The Fellow will be expected to undertake research in English.
 Start date is negotiable, but should be no later than October 2014.

Deadline for applications is 10th March 2014. More information, including how to apply, can be found on the Philosophy department webpage here.
