Short-listed candidates will be invited to interviews, either in person or over the internet. After the interviews, the philosophical faculty will recommend one candidate to the university for approval. The chance that the university will reject the recommendation is low, but not zero. IMPORTANT NOTE: Unlike in many other places, there is a very long and very burdensome administrative process between the philosophical faculty’s decision as to which candidate to recommend and the university’s decision as to whether to approve the recommendation. It is long and burdensome for both sides, so the recommended candidate should expect to spend much time and effort going through the process with us. People who are unwilling or unable to go through this process should not apply. And before the philosophical faculty make a recommendation, short-listed candidates may be asked whether Tsinghua is his or her first choice. We do not like doing this, but have to reduce the chance of going through the long and burdensome administrative process in vain.

Call for Post-doctorial Fellow for Project “Philosophy in Action”
National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore

National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) was conceived and founded in 1988 by the late Mr. J. R. D. Tata, who sought to create an institution to conduct advanced multidisciplinary research. Housed in a picturesque green campus in Bangalore the Institute serves as a forum to bring together individuals from diverse intellectual backgrounds, in the natural and life sciences, humanities, social sciences, and conflict and security studies. The philosophy underlying NIAS is given shape by its multidisciplinary research teams. The Institute is unique in its integrated approach to the study of intersections between science and technology, philosophy, social issues and leadership. The objective is to nurture a broad base of scholars, managers and leaders who would respond to the complex challenges that face contemporary India and global society, with insight, sensitivity, confidence and dedication. For more details: www.nias.res.in

Philosophy as an idea as well as a discipline in NIAS has a long history, right from its inception. Through the initiative of a project titled “Philosophy in Action: Creating Public Citizenship”, supported by the Tata Trusts, the Philosophy Programme has continued this tradition of making philosophy meaningful to the society. This project is an effort to create public resources for philosophy, intervene in teaching philosophy right from schools to the larger public, create online resources which will enable easy access to both Indian and contemporary philosophy, publish books in philosophy for children and general readership, and so on.

Applications are invited for a full time post-doctoral fellowship based at NIAS as part of the project "Philosophy in Action: Creating public citizenship" (supported by the Tata Trusts) under Prof. Sundar Sarukkai.

The selected candidate will have to work towards the objectives of the project, which include creating resources for public access to philosophy through books, workshops, website and other online forums, and teaching in different fora such as schools and colleges. The postdoctoral fellow will also be expected to work on her/his individual research work. The fellowship is for a period of one year, extendable to the second year following evaluation at the end of the first year.

Students who have a PhD in Philosophy, Humanities or Social Sciences can apply. For students with a non-philosophy degree, their PhD work must have drawn on philosophy extensively.

Interested applicants should submit their curriculum vitae electronically along with the following documents:-
1. Covering letter
2. Statement of Purpose
3. PDF copies of minimally 2 publications/writing samples
