Javier Suárez is currently a Postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Philosophy, University of Bielefeld (Germany). He is now working on a project on the nature of dispositional ascriptions in the life sciences. From January 2021 onwards, Javier will be the PI of the project MULTISPECIES, which he will carry out at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland).

Before his current appointment, Javier obtained a BA in Philosophy at the University of Oviedo, a MA in Analytic Philosophy at the University of Barcelona, and two PhD degrees in philosophy of biology at the University of Exeter (November 2019) and in general philosophy of science at the University of Barcelona (May 2020).

In addition to Logos, Javier has been a researcher in Egenis: The centre for the study of life sciences, University of Exeter (2015-2018), the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research, in Vienna (March-June 2019), and ImmunoConcEpT, University of Bordeaux (February-March 2020).

Javier strongly supports an interdisciplinary and empirically-based approach to philosophy, including collaboration with researchers in other areas of knowledge, e.g. with social scientists, historians, mathematicians, or biologists. His main interests include general topics in philosophy of science (causation, modelling, explanation, scientific classification) and, particularly, in philosophy of biology and medicine, with special emphasis on the biological and philosophical implications of the pervasiveness of symbiosis in nature and the hologenome concept of evolution.
