Jobs: Two Postdoctoral Fellowship in Exeter, Centre for the Study of the Life Sciences (Egenis)

Dear colleagues,

The Exeter Centre for the Study of the Life Sciences (Egenis) at the University of Exeter is recruiting two Postdoctoral Research Fellows to participate in the project PHIL_OS (“A Philosophy of Open Science for Diverse Research Environments”) led by Sabina Leonelli. PHIL_OS will develop an empirically grounded philosophy of Open Science [OS] that emphasises the diversity of research environments around the world and articulates the conditions under which OS can leverage such diversity to promote good research practice. These ERC funded posts are available from 1 January 2022 to 31 August 2025. The posts will include: the conduct of research and publication of research papers; extensive and regular engagement with the project team and partners; international presentations and dialogue with peers; the organisation of a project workshop; and support for research activities at Egenis.

The first Research Fellow will be responsible for Work Package 1: Epistemic diversity and the notion of research environment and will collaborate with the PI towards investigating how conceptions of research environments affect existing accounts of the relationship between conditions and outcomes of knowledge production. This framework will be articulated through dialogue with philosophical scholarship on epistemic diversity, the role of social and material resources in knowledge production, and findings by the project team.

The second Research Fellow will be responsible for Work Package 2: Epistemic injustice and impact of Open Science on diverse research environments and will collaborate with the PI towards articulating what forms of epistemic injustice may be associated with the implementation of OS, and how OS initiatives can mitigate such effects. This study will rely on existing scholarship on epistemic injustice, innovation in low-resourced sites, and inequity related to digital transformations and epistemic diversity.

Deadline for application is 31 May 2021 - further details below, including information about how to apply.
