The position is financed under the research project 2019/35/B/HS1/03281 (NCN, Poland), Theory Construction and the Empirical Social and Behavioral Sciences (TESBS). PI: Dr. Frank Zenker. A detailed project description can be found here. The position is scheduled for 24 months. Gross salary: 120 thousand PLN per year.

TESBS responds critically to the absence of sophisticated theoretical superstructures in the empirical social and behavioural sciences (ESBS). TESBS adopts a semantic view of theory structures. The central goal is to develop a toolbox for theory (re-)construction that enables ESBS scientists to formulate point-specific hypotheses, and to integrate or differentiate such hypotheses into theoretical frameworks. This toolbox must align with what is cognitively accessible in the ESBS today. TESBS therefore downplays formal logic and set theory as representational tools, instead foregrounding topology (aka conceptual spaces).
