The Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2019 PSP3: A Summer Program in Philosophy of Science for Underrepresented Groups, which will be held in the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh from July 15 to July 19, 2019
We invite applications from North American female undergraduates, LGBT, disabled, from racial and ethnic backgrounds, first generation, and other undergraduates from groups underrepresented in philosophy of science. Exceptions may be granted to undergraduates not in these groups on a case-by-case basis (please explain your situation in your cover letter). Past coursework in philosophy of science is not a prerequisite for application to the Summer Program.
The Summer Program will feature two daily graduate seminars about core issues and cutting-edge topics in general philosophy of science and philosophy of the special sciences (e.g., physics, biology, cognitive science and neuroscience, social sciences). The seminars and lectures will be given by internationally recognized faculty in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh as well as in the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. Housing, meals, and transportation (US travel only) costs will be covered, and all course materials provided. Applications are due March 1, 2019, and participants will be notified by April 15, 2019.
A faculty member should also send separately a letter of recommendation on behalf of the applicant to the same email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
