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

The position is available from 1 February 2022 (or as soon as possible thereafter).

The research project
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?

These research questions are studied in 9 work packages. A PhD project could either relate to one or more specific work-packages or it could be a free-standing project. In the latter case, the applicant should make sure that it is clear from the application how the proposed project relates to CEPDISC’s main research aims. For more information of work packages and current research/activities, please consult our website here.

The call is open for any project that deals with one or more of CEPDISC's three main research questions. CEPDISC’s research is grounded in either philosophical analysis or experimental methods or, ideally, a combination of both. CEPDISC uses philosophical analysis to articulate core concepts and draw distinctions between different forms of discrimination, and to assess arguments for and against specific understandings of discrimination and mitigation-related interventions. To examine how these items apply in a broader public we use experimental research. Furthermore, we draw on theories from political psychology on e.g., intergroup relations to identify and explore the psychological drivers of discrimination. The proposed PhD project can freely combine these approaches, but the ideal project will speak directly to philosophical perspectives on discrimination and employ an experimental approach.

Applicants should specify whether they are specifically interested in working with a particular sub-project/work package or whether they are applying for a project on experimental-philosophical studies of discrimination that falls outside the sub-projects.

Your qualifications
We expect the successful applicant to have a master’s degree in either political science, social psychology, sociology, philosophy or related areas. The right candidate must have experience with or at least a strong interest in conducting empirical and experimental social science and/or a strong interest in theoretical, philosophical, political or psychological perspectives on discrimination.

Who are we
Centre for the Experimental-Philosophical Study of Discrimination (CEPDISC) is part of the Department of Political Science at Aarhus University. CEPDISC - is a centre of excellence devoted the experimental-philosophical study of discrimination and funded for a six-year period by the Danish National Research Foundation.
