The Steering Committee of the European Philosophy of Science Association (EPSA) seeks applications for the position of Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal for Philosophy of Science (EJPS). The editorship will be assumed on 1 July 2017 and is normally held for a renewable term of four years.
The European Journal for Philosophy of Science was founded in 2009 and the first issue was published in 2011. The journal currently publishes three issues per year. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for selecting manuscripts for publication, supervising the editorial office, and coordinating the production of the journal with the publisher Springer. The Editor-in-Chief must hold a permanent academic appointment at a European University and have a distinguished research record in philosophy of science.
Applications for the Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal for Philosophy of Science should summarize the applicant’s qualifications for the editorship, present the proposed editorial team (currently the journal has two Editors-in-Chief and five Associate Editors, but other arrangements are also possible), and describe the likely institutional support, such as teaching relief, office space, and administrative assistance. Applications from outside of Europe are welcome, but at least half of the editorial team (i.e. Editors-in-Chief and Associate Editors) should have a position in Europe. If two Editors-in-Chief are proposed, at least one of them should have a permanent appointment at a European University. The application should also include the CVs of all members of the proposed editorial team. Please submit applications by e-mail attachment to the secretary of EPSA, Ms Maria Csauscher, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is 1 September 2016. Questions concerning the application should be directed to the President of EPSA, Prof. Stephan Hartmann, at S.Hartmann@lmu.de.
