These positions are part of the ARC Laureate Project A Philosophy of Medicine for the 21st Century. The appointees will work with Chief Investigator Professor Paul E. Griffiths and collaborators to develop a new vision of health and disease which can accommodate developments in contemporary biology and to make the discipline of philosophy an active participant in identifying new directions for integrative biomedical research.
Specific research topics will include:
* Exploring and developing accounts of biological function and biological normativity through their application to data and theory in current biology and medicine
* Implications of life history theory and the developmental origins of health and disease paradigm for conceptions of health and disease

The research will be conducted in close collaboration with the biomedical research community at the University of Sydney.
