Center for the Philosophy of Nature and Science Studies
at the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen. (Main page of CPNSS here)

The centre is headed by the director, advised by a board governed by the Faculty of Science, and hosted by the Niels Bohr Institute. The staff is organized around three networks of persons with interests in history, philosophy and social studies of science, often with positions at other institutes at the Faculty of Science, namely (1) the FVT-group which is the teaching of science studies group devoted to develop courses in theory of science for the bachelor programmes ("Fagets Videnskabsteori"), see Danish page for this group here; (2) a Philosophy of Nature network of researchers interested in questions of ontology, metaphysics, epistemology, history and ethics of science related to their particular field of expertise; and (3) a related group investigating expontology, a field with old roots that you can read more about here.
Thus the centre is small, with one permanent position (the director's), a group of ph.d. students, additional guest researchers, and other affiliated parsons, such as one assigned professor with a permanent position at the GEUS centre. We have no vacant positions and are in need of grants for Ph.D. student and post-docs.
