At the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Center for Logic and Philosophy of  
Science, a full-time and fully funded position for a Ph.D. student is  
available for a four-year period, starting at the earliest moment (as  
early as 1 July 2009).

The topic of the research project, funded by the FWO-Vlaanderen  
(Research Foundation Flanders), is: “Argumentative networks: a still  
missing integration of philosophical approaches to argumentation with  
AI-models, with an application to mathematical practice.” The  
intended application is the classification theorem of the finite,  
simple groups. We are therefore looking for a student with a  
philosophical training, but with the required mathematical background  
to handle such proofs.

Please send your CV and a letter of motivation to Jean Paul Van  
Bendegem (jpvbende at vub.ac.be) before June 15, 2009. A more detailed  
project description can be found at http://www.vub.ac.be/CLWF/
