The Centre for Argument Technology at the University of Dundee is continuing to expand. We are looking both for candidates for PhD positions, and now also for postdoctoral research positions that are permanent (subject to funding review after three years). We are looking both for junior candidates who have either just finished or are about to finish their PhD, and for more senior researchers with significant research experience (Grade 7 to Grade 8, £35,308 to £47,047).
We currently run a portfolio of research projects for government, charity and commercial funders in the UK, US, EU, Germany, Portugal and Switzerland worth over £1m per year. With many dependencies between these projects, we need new talent to join the team and help drive forward the research of the Centre. This is a unique opportunity for someone with interest and expertise in working with argumentation to join a world-leading research group – regardless of their disciplinary background. If you think you would be a good fit, we would be keen to hear from you regardless of whether you have a degree in philosophy, linguistics, literature, communication, cognitive science, social science, computer science, artificial intelligence, mathematics, engineering, economics, international relations, politics, law, or any other cognate disciplines.
