Justin Bruner, a fourth year graduate student in LPS, was recently awarded a five year post-doctoral research position at Australian National University, in Canberra, Australia. Funding for the position is provided by a prestigious Australian Laureate Fellowship awarded to philosopher of biology Kim Sterelny, for a project entitled "The Origins of Inequality, Hierarchy, and Social Complexity". Bruner's dissertation, which is supervised by Distinguished Professor of Logic and Philosophy of Science Brian Skyrms, uses methods from evolutionary game theory to explore the evolution of human behavior, including (in)tolerance and ethical norms. Bruner expects to defend his dissertation and move to Australia next month.
