Who we are
The Interdisciplinary Centre for Ethics offers an engaging and international work environment. Our research interests include (but are not limited to) bioethics, practical ethics, experimental philosophy, moral psychology, philosophy of medicine, political philosophy, philosophy of law, epistemology.
Although our research interests are diversified we focus on problems that bridge the gap between philosophy and practice. We use an interdisciplinary approach to deal with philosophical problems in practical contexts: both "armchair" methods typical for the humanities and social sciences (conceptual analysis, case studies), as well as empirical methods (behavioral experiments, corpus analysis, topic modelling).
The results of our work have been published by world-leading journals and book publishers.
INCET is currently hosting BIOUNCERTAINTY Starting Grant funded by the European Research Council (ERC) led by Tomasz Żuradzki who is also the head of the Centre. INCET is also hosting 5 successful POLONEZ BIS postdocs (POLONEZ BIS a postdoctoral programme, co-funded by the European Commission and the Polish National Science Centre under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND grant) and other research projects.
Why work at INCET
The Jagiellonian University is one of the oldest universities in Europe (established in 1364) and now one of the best two universities in Poland. INCET employees have different backgrounds but with a common interest in philosophy (while the majority of us are philosophers, some of us are also lawyers, psychologists, economists, and physicians) that are passionate about their research.
We cooperate in research and writing articles, comment on each other’s work, learn and master new skills, and, above all, are good friends also after 5 pm. INCET offers very flexible working conditions: we can work from home or from our office in central Kraków (52 Grodzka Street), at time different from the 9-5 shift but we all meet at the INCET weekly research seminar and other research events. The talks are given either by a member of our team or invite guests from other leading philosophy research centers.
The Jagiellonian University in Kraków offers an engaging academic and cultural life. The city itself is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Central Europe and offers many opportunities for spending leisure time. All in all, working at INCET can be an intellectual adventure and a boost to your career. We wait for you!
