Contexte de travail

Offer of a doctoral fellowship of 3 years in the history of philosophy (16th-17th centuries) in the context of the ERC project NOTCOM. NOTCOM is a five-year research project in the history of philosophy of science funded by an ERC Advanced Grant in 2023-2027. It is dedicated to the epistemology, methods, and communication strategies of collective science in the seventeenth century. The project is set up between the research centre IHRIM at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon and the Maison Française d'Oxford, a CNRS unit abroad, placed in England.

Over the three years of thesis work, the fellow will also accumulate stays of approx. 4-6 weeks a year at the Maison Française d'Oxford. The expenses associated with these stays are covered by the NOTCOM project and will not involve additional cost for the doctoral fellow.

It is moreover required that a substantial summary of the thesis (about 10%) should be provided at the end of the contract, before the thesis defence. If the thesis is written in French, the candidate must have reasonable good English skills.
- The doctoral fellow will be enrolled in the doctoral school of philosophy in Lyon (ED no. 487). In order to validate the contract, the candidate must complete 60 hours of trainings throughout the three years of their doctorate.
