To promote the philosophy and history of science in the region served by the University of Pittsburgh, the Center for Philosophy of Science operates an Associates Program for scholars of science who are located at other institutions in the area but who wish to take advantage of the intellectual resources of the Center and to participate on a regular basis in the life of the Center.
Appointment as an Associate of the Center is limited to scholars and scientists with a professional interest in the philosophy of science, or history of science, and is made for a period of three years. Associates have no formal duties and receive no compensation, but acceptance of appointment is viewed by the Center as a commitment on the part of the Associate to participate in several Center activities each year. Associates who fulfill this commitment are eligible for renewal of their appointments in the Center.
If you are interested in becoming a Center Associate, please contact Assistant Director Samuel Wessell for more information.
