        Subject: JOB: Two Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Digital History and/or Philosophy of Biology

The FNRS MIS project Digital History and Philosophy of Biology (DHPB),
led by Prof. Charles Pence at the Centre de philosophie des sciences et
sociétés (CEFISES) and Institut supérieur de philosophie (ISP) at the
Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain) is advertising *two*
two-year post-doctoral fellowships in history and/or philosophy of biology.

Application deadline: March 1, 2019
Starting date: May 1, 2019
Ending date: April 31, 2021 (with the possibility of an extension to a
third year)
More information: ,
also soon to appear on Euraxess

The DHPB project aims to expand the use of the tools of digital
humanities – particularly textual analysis – to study the history and
philosophy of the life sciences. We have developed an application (see
doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0146004) and a corpus of journal article data
(see doi:10.1016/j.shpsc.2016.04.003) enabling us to study at a broad
scale the journal literature in evolutionary biology and related fields,
offering a novel perspective on the growth and development of biological
science (dating back to as early as 1860).

We will gladly review postdoctoral fellowship applications from
candidates trained in either philosophy or history of science, as well
as digital humanities or the sciences (if such candidates have expertise
in philosophical or historical work).
