PhD scholarship and Post-doctoral position on Justice and the Family - Universitat Pompeu Fabra

ERC-Funded PhD Position on Justice and the Family

We invite applications for a funded, full-time 3 year PhD position in political philosophy at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, in the context of an ERC Consolidator Grant (648610) project led by Serena Olsaretti on “Justice and the Family: An Analysis of the Normative Significance of Procreation and Parenthood in a Just Society”.

The successful applicant will undertake a PhD in any of the three main areas of research identified by the project, which are as follows:

1) Parental Justice – Does justice require that parents and non-parents share, and share equally, the costs and benefits of having children, and how do different answers to this question bear on our theory of distributive justice?

2) Childhood Justice – What are the claims of justice that we have as children, how do they relate to those we have as adults, and who bears the correlative duties?

3) Intergenerational Justice – Do all contemporaries, regardless of whether they are parents or non-parents, have the same obligations of justice towards future generations, and how, if at all, are the justification and the content of those obligations affected by considerations about what parents owe their children and parents and non-parents owe to each other?

The PhD bursary is regulated by a pre-doctoral labour contract for research staff at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. It is a fixed-term, full-time contract. The gross annual value of the bursary would be of approximately €21,000, or €1400 per month gross.

Starting date: Between 1 June 2016 and 1 October 2016.

Application deadline: Friday 1 April 2016
