Bob Batterman moves to University of Pittsburgh
Bob Batterman, currently at the University of Western Ontario, has been hired by the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Philosophy. One more reason to love history and philosophy of science at the Cathedral of Learning!
This is quite a coup for Pittsburgh. But it’s also a timely move as far as philosophy of physics is concerned, given that John Earman is expected to retire this year.
Welcome to Pittsburgh, Bob!

Damn you! :)
Anyway, that probably means I’ll spend some time in Pitt!
Hey Nic — no hard feelings! :) And if you do find yourself in Pittsburgh, be sure to look me up. We’d love to have you crash with us while you’re here.
