(Apologies for cross-posting.)

The Institute of Philosophy at KU Leuven invites applications for two PhD positions and one postdoc position, all in the broad area of philosophical logic. The positions are part of the ERC Starting Grant 'STARTDIALOG: Towards a Systematic Theory of Aristotelian Diagrams in Logical Geometry', led by prof. dr. Lorenz Demey; cf.

Aristotelian diagrams, such as the square of opposition, have been widely used throughout the history of philosophy and logic. Nowadays, they also have several applications in other disciplines that are concerned with logical reasoning, such as psychology, linguistics and computer science. The overarching goal of the STARTDIALOG project is to develop a unified theory of Aristotelian diagrams. Towards this goal, we are currently looking to hire the following profiles:   (PhD position in logical geometry and philosophy of logic)   (PhD position in logical geometry and formal logic)   (Postdoc position in logical geometry and non-classical logic)

Note: a fourth position (postdoc, background in logic/artificial intelligence/digital humanities) will be announced in the course of 2023.

For more information please contact prof. dr. Lorenz Demey via e-mail: lorenz.demey at Upon request, he will send you a (much) more detailed description of the STARTDIALOG project.

Applications should include a cover letter, a detailed CV, a writing sample (e.g., an excerpt of the master's thesis/PhD dissertation, a term paper, etc., between 10 and 20 pages) and a one-page research statement, outlining your research priorities and emphases within the general context of the STARTDIALOG project.

You can apply for these positions no later than August 23, 2022 via KU Leuven's online application tool (accessible via the links mentioned above).
