Call for applications: Thesis instructors and supervisors at the Philosophy, Politics and Economics programme at VU Amsterdam

The Philosophy, Politics and Economics programme at the VU Amsterdam is looking for philosophers, economists and political scientists to teach and supervise theses. You will be given four students who will follow a short thesis tutorial course from you on a topic that is relevant to PPE and close to your teaching and research interests. In this course, students will write a literature review and a thesis proposal, both of which you will assess. Subsequently, you will supervise these four students as they write their thesis. This will take place in the context of both individual and group meetings. You will assess the theses from your group of four students, and you will function as second reader for four other theses.

The overall workload is 105 hours per seminar group (which is roughly the equivalent of a 4,5 EC course) spread out over periods 5 and 6, which runs from April 3rd through July 15th.

Minimum requirements are a PhD in philosophy, politics or economics. If you are interested, please send an email to p.robichaud[at] with a CV, short statement of research interests, and one or more potential topics/fields for thesis subjects. We invite expressions of interest before Noon (CET) on January 20th.
