2 fully funded PhD positions in Logic and
Language at TiLPS

The Tilburg Center for Logic and Philosophy
of Science (TiLPS) invites applications for
two fully funded four-year PhD positions.

1 PhD student in Natural Logic and Linguistic
1 PhD student in Computational Logic and
Natural Reasoning

Individuals are encouraged to apply who have
an interest in logical and computational
theories of ordinary reasoning, natural logic,
and/or linguistic semantics and who want to
investigate these topics in an interdisciplinary
setting where linguistic investigation is
combined with tableau theorem proving and model
checking. The positions are part of the program
'Towards Logics that Model Natural Reasoning',
funded by a Free Competition grant from the
Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research
(NWO) and led by Reinhard Muskens. More
information about this program and about the
projects can be found at


These positions are open to candidates with a
master's degree or equivalent and successful
candidates are required to complete a PhD
thesis within maximally four years.

We expect the willingness to work in an
international interdisciplinary research
environment. The PhD candidates will receive
a starting salary of 2042 Euro gross per month
in the first year. The salary in the last year
is 2612 Euro.

Applications (in English) should include a cover
letter, a curriculum vitae, a two-page research
proposal, and the names of two references.
Candidates are also invited to include a sample
of their writing, if one is available in English,
French, German or Dutch. Only applications made
