KLI Postdoc Fellowship Call

3 KLI Postdoctoral Fellowships on "Evolutionary Theory in Interdisciplinary Context" Evolutionary arguments and theories are often mobilized in other disciplines as well as in different societal contexts and discourses. These translations are challenging and require interdisciplinary and theoretical engagement at the intersection of evolutionary biology and other scientific or scholarly fields. In order to foster this engagement, the KLI is seeking 3 postdoc fellows conducting interdisciplinary evolutionary research with a focus on theoretical approaches, including conceptual, mathematical, and historical analyses.

We encourage applications from research fields such as evolutionary medicine, including evolutionary epidemiology in public health; evolutionary ecology and conservation biology; evolutionary neuroscience and psychology; and biocultural evolution. Projects may also comprise empirical work carried out with partner institutions. Furthermore, we invite projects from ethics, philosophy, history and social studies of science that engage with the epistemological and ethical issues that emerge when using evolutionary arguments and theories in contexts and discourses outside of evolutionary biology.

Who is encouraged to apply? Postdoc fellowships are individual fellowships for researchers in residence and are awarded to work independently on the applicant's research project. The fellowships are especially well-suited for post-docs whose research deals with the historical, philosophical, and conceptual foundations in the disciplines mentioned above but also for empirical researchers who wish to elaborate on the conceptual, epistemological, and methodological underpinnings and implications of their work. The applicants should be interested in and eager to extend their research perspective by drawing on novel concepts of evolutionary theorizing, philosophy of science, and cognition research based on long-standing work done at the KLI. Details of the fellowships:

First deadline: Dec 15th, 2022
