Job content
The PhD student will be part of a project entitled Selection in Cognition funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and headed by Prof Søren Kyllingsbæk and Assoc Prof Thor Grünbaum. Applicants are asked to situate and develop their research plan within the framework of the Selection in Cognition project. For more information about the project, please contact Assoc Prof Thor Grünbaum (tgr@hum.ku.dk).

The PhD student will be part of a project team that uses the analytical tools of philosophy of science to assess the claim that absence of proper theorizing is the root cause of low replicability in psychological sciences and to understand the type of theory needed to alleviate the crisis. The PhD project should address the replication crisis and theory crisis in cognitive science from the perspective of philosophy of science. The PhD project should engage with recent philosophy of science and philosophy of confirmation, as well as relevant theoretical, methodological, and empirical studies in psychology. The successful candidate will be working in close cooperation with philosophers as well as cognitive psychologists and neuroscientists associated with the CoInAct Research Group (https://psychology.ku.dk/coinact/) and is expected to partake in the activities of CoInAct on a daily basis.
