OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Department of Philosophy, University of Tartu, offers one fully-funded 4-year PhD position (subject to successful evaluation every year according to the university rules). The position is directly associated with and will contribute to the Horizon 2020 project “Responsible Open Science in Europe” (ROSiE – see below for more details). The focus of the PhD project will broadly be on the disciplinary, conceptual, epistemic and ethical challenges associated with the implementation of Open Science. The project and the supervisors will be located in a philosophy department but the project will have significant interdisciplinary aspects, being conducted at the intersections of philosophy (esp. philosophy of science) and research ethics and likely to combine both theoretical literature-based as well as social research methodology.

About ROSiE

Open science (OS) – where research planning, processes, data and results are freely available to all stakeholders – is the future of science. OS will make science more effective and more responsive to societal needs, and it will enable citizens to participate actively in all aspects of science as citizen scientists. OS does, however also raise new questions about research ethics, integrity and misconduct. We know that research misconduct and questionable research practices occur in our current scientific processes, and it is likely that similar or new forms of misconduct and questionable practices will emerge in OS. It is therefore important to identify and analyse the potential for misconduct in various areas of OS practice and in different scientific disciplines, and to identify and analyse current ethical, social and legal approaches to responding to questionable practices. It is only based on such an analysis that the European science system can effectively ensure that ethics and research integrity (ERI) becomes a structural component of Open Science.

ROSiE will provide this analysis and develop practical tools aimed at ensuring ERI in OS and citizen science (CS). This will be done by a strongly multi-disciplinary project group consisting of world-leading experts and organizations in OS, CS, and ERI. (See more at https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101006430)
