Call for Applications: Editor-in-Chief

The Steering Committee of the European Philosophy of Science Association seeks applications for the position of Editor-in-Chief (or Editors-in-Chief) of the European Journal for Philosophy of Science (the EJPS). The editorship will be assumed on 1 July 2021 and is normally held for a renewable term of four years.
