Rubin from Notre Dame to Missouri

Hannah Rubin, currently assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, has accepted a position as associate professor of philosophy at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Professor Rubin works primarily in philosophy of biology and philosophy of science. She holds a sizable National Science Foundation grant for the project “Race, Gender, and the Science of Science“, to integrate considerations about the effects of researchers’ social identities on inquiry (from philosophy of science) into the study of how to achieve well-functioning science. You can learn more about her research at her website.

Her appointment at Missouri begins in January of 2023.

Missouri has also hired Mike D. Schneider as assistant professor of philosophy, starting in January of 2023. He works primarily in philosophy of physics.

That’s a nice counter-entropic move by whomever directs the money at Missouri. The notion of biological causation has been so corrupted by other funding entities that only intense philosophical activity can redeem it.
