PhD special call: Centre for the Experimental-Philosophical study of Discrimination (CEPDISC)

Aarhus Universitet (AU)

Aarhus BSS Graduate School, Aarhus University invites applicants for a PhD Scholarship in connection with the Centre for the Experimental-Philosophical study of Discrimination (CEPDISC), Department of Political Science at the PhD Programme Political Science.

The position is available from 1 September 2020 (or as soon as possible thereafter).

CEPDISC studies discrimination from an experimental-philosophical perspective. It asks three main research questions:
1) What is discrimination and what forms of discrimination exist?
2) What are the moral objections to discrimination?
3) What are the psychological mechanisms behind discrimination and what can and should be done, given these mechanisms, to mitigate discrimination?

Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen is the center leader of CEPDISC. CEPDISC’s core members are: Göran Duus-Otterström, Marion Godman, Lasse Laustsen, Kim Mannemar Sønderskov, Søren Flinch Midtgaard, Michael Bang Petersen, Lotte Thomsen, and Fabio Wolkenstein. Together the core members cover relevant fields in political theory/philosophy and social and political psychology.

The research project
The call is open for any project that deals with one or more of CEPDISC's three main research questions, but special preference is given to projects that contribute to a subproject under main research question 1). This subproject aims to map different conceptions of discrimination in the humanities and social science, e.g., philosophy, sociology, and law. The aim is to distinguish between different conceptions of what discrimination is and to specify them in terms of necessary and sufficient conditions. The subproject is headed by associate professor Göran Duus-Otterström.

Projects with an experimental-philosophical approach, or with sub-projects with such an approach, are preferred. We expect the successful applicant to have a master’s degree in either political science or philosophy.

Further information
Applicants can contact Göran Duus-Otterström for further description of the subproject via email at gdo@ps.au.dk.
