The Philosophy Faculty is delighted to announce the arrival of the following new permanent colleagues in Autumn 2013.

Susanne Bobzien has been elected as a Senior Research Fellow of All Souls College, with effect from July 2013. Professor Bobzien was Fellow and Tutor at Queen’s College, Oxford until 2002. Since then she has been a Professor and Senior Research Scholar at Yale University. Her areas of research include philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, ancient philosophy, determinism and freedom. She is the author of Determinism and Freedom in Stoic Philosophy (1998, OUP); Die stoische Modallogik (1986, Würzburg: Königshausen und Neumann); and Alexander of Aphrodisias: On Aristotle Prior Analytics I.1-7 (with J. Barnes, K. Flannery, K. Ierodiakonou) (1991, London: Duckworth).

James Grant has been appointed to a CUF Lecturership in association with a Tutorial Fellowship in Philosophy at Exeter College. He will return to the Faculty after holding a Departmental Lecturership here in association with Queen’s College. He is currently a Lecturer at Birkbeck College. His primary research interest is Aesthetics, and his book The Critical Imagination has just been published by OUP.

Philipp Koralus has been appointed to the Fulford-Clarendon University Lecturership in Philosophy of Mind in association with the Fulford Tutorial Fellowship at St Catherine’s College. His research centers on the role of unarticulated questions in attention and perception, the interpretation of language, and reasoning. He is currently James S. McDonnell Postdoctoral Fellow in the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology Program at Washington University in St Louis, and will spend the summer as a Visiting Fellow at the Munich Centre for Mathematical Philosophy.

Karen Margrethe Nielsen has been appointed to a CUF Lecturership in association with a Tutorial Fellowship at Somerville College. She is currently Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario. Her research centres on questions at the intersection of Aristotle’s ethics and moral psychology. She joins - and strengthens further - the Oxford Philosophy Faculty’s world-class group of Ancient Philosophers.

Ian Phillips has been appointed to a CUF Lecturership in association with the Gabrielle Taylor Tutorial Fellowship at St Anne’s College. He is currently a Lecturer at University College London, and was until recently a Prize Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. His recent work has been principally in philosophy of mind and cognitive science and is currently working on a book, Our Experience of Time.

Tom Porter has been appointed to a CUF Lecturership in association with a Tutorial Fellowship at Wadham College. He is currently a Lecturer in Political Philosophy at the University of Manchester. He is interested in all areas of political philosophy and ethics. His current research focuses on liberalism and the justification of political norms at both the domestic level and the global level, distributive justice and distributive principles, and the relations between morality and political principles.

James Studd has been appointed to the University Lecturership in Philosophy of Mathematics in association with a Tutorial Fellowship at Lady Margaret Hall. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher on the AHRC project Inexpressibility and Reflection.

His present research focuses on a nexus of issues surrounding our attempts to engage in absolutely general enquiry, drawing on tools from philosophical logic to shed light on foundational issues in set theory, and on ideas from metasemantics to investigate abstract knowledge and reference.
