The Carnegie Mellon Department of Philosophy invites applications for 
the Herbert Simon Fellowship in Scientific Philosophy. We are seeking 
applications from scholars working in logic or philosophy of mathematics 
(including its history). Applications in the following areas of logic 
are particularly welcome: proof theory, category theory, categorical 
logic, formal verification, and automated proof search. The Fellowship 
is intended primarily for those who have recently received doctorates, 
including scholars with a continuing faculty appointment elsewhere. The 
Fellowship has a tenure of two years (non-renewable), with teaching 
duties of 2 courses/year, one of which should be a research seminar in 
the Fellow's specialty. Appointments of one year are possible for 
applicants with a continuing faculty appointment elsewhere. Residence in 
Pittsburgh is expected. Applications (including a statement of purpose, 
CV, at least one writing sample and two letters of reference) may be 
sent to: The Philosophy Department; Carnegie Mellon University; 
Pittsburgh PA 15213. Attention: Simon Fellowship Committee. Electronic 
applications, preferably in pdf format enclosed as attachments, are 
welcome and indeed preferred. Send email to: phil-search at andrew.cmu.edu. 
The deadline for application is December 1, 2010.
