Collaborations and Exchange Programmes

 

University of california, irvine

The Department of Philosophy at the Faculty of Cultural and Social Sciences has closely collaborated with the University of California, Irvine since 1975. A core part of this collaboration is an exchange programme. This programme enables faculty members as well as students from Salzburg to spend some time (research or teaching) at the Department of Philosophy or Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at UCI (for a period of three months up to a year). In return, faculty members and students from Irvine visit Salzburg. In the context of this collaboration there are also regular joint activities such as conferences and workshops in Salzburg and Irvine. For instance, a Salzburg-Irvine-Munich workshop series is planned. In addition to faculty members, this exchange programme is primarily aimed at doctoral students. They not only profit from establishing research contacts but usually also teach a course. For this reason excellent English skills are required. For further information please contact Charlotte Werndl, the coordinator of the Salzburg-Irvine exchange programme in Salzburg.

London School of economics

Charlotte Werndl is a Visiting Professor at the Centre of Philosophy of Natural and Social Sciences at the London School of Economics and Political Science. With her arrival a new collaboration was set up with this institution. A core part of this collaboration is an exchange programme between Salzburg and the Centre of Philosophy of Natural and Social Sciences. This programme enables doctoral students from the Department of Philosophy in Salzburg to spend some time (research or teaching) at the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Sciences and the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method (for a period of three months up to a year). In return, doctoral students from the LSE visit Salzburg. Excellent Englishskills are a requirement for this programme. For further information please contact Charlotte Werndl, the coordinator of the LSE-Salzburg exchange programme in Salzburg. In the context of this collaboration other joint activities such as workshops and conferences are also planned.
