Mark Colyvan's Postdoctoral Fellows and Postgraduate Students

I have a terrific team of postdocs and postgraduate students here at the University of Sydney (see below) working primarily in and around the more technical areas of philosophy (philosophy of probability, philosophy of logic, philosophy of ecology, philosophy of mathematics, formal epistemology and the like). We're always on the lookout for talented and hard-working new people to join our group: honours students, masters students, PhD students and postdocs. Email me at mcolyvan AT usyd DOT edu DOT au if you're interested in joining us. Click here to see the lineage you will be joining (as a PhD student), see here for information about choosing a philosophy graduate program, and here for advice about postdocs (and early career advice, more generally).
