He has been Professor at New York University since 2008, Regius Professor of Logic at Aberdeen University from 2013 until 2015 and Emeritus since then. In 2015, he took up the post of Professor of Philosophical Research at the University of Stirling which he holds to the present day. He has taught at New York University since 2002 and resumed a half-time Global Distinguished Professorship at that same university from Fall 2014. He has held visiting professorships at various other leading research centres, including Columbia University (1997-2002), Magdalen College, Oxford (Trinity Term of 1991), University of Queensland (April-May 1989) and Princeton University (1985-86).
