Students of ISHPSSB! The time has come to elect a new student representative. I've had a great tenure, but I must step down. Included below is the bio for the only current nominee. Voting (such as it is) will occur during the student meeting.

Indeed, the election is not the only item on the student meeting agenda! We will also be discussing the future of student-run ISH off-year workshops, and providing a forum for issues that you want your rep to bring to the ISH committee prior to the general meeting.

Monday 13 July 2009, 1330-1430
location TBA


Student Representative nominees:
Joeri Witteveen:
Joeri has degrees from Maastricht University (in The Netherlands) and the London School of Economics. He studied at UC Berkeley and was a pre-doctoral fellow at the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research before starting his PhD in the HPS department at the University of Cambridge in Fall 2008. He is interested in--and has a lot to learn about--a range of topics in general philosophy of science, sociology of knowledge, and the history of biology. His PhD research is in the philosophy of biology, where he is interested in the levels of selection, developmental evolution, and cultural evolution, among other topics. In his spare time he reads more philosophy, goes running, visits Vienna, and enjoys Cambridge.
As a student representative, Joeri would like to help find opportunities for graduate travel funding for travel to ISHPSSB 2011. In addition, he would like to set up a listserv for graduate students to exchange questions and advice about job applications, and as a means to continue discussions that started at meetings.
