This is a fixed term appointment for one year, starting from 3 September 2018, with a possibility of extension for a further one-two years.

The LSE Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method seeks applications for a one-year LSE Fellowship in Philosophy, which has the potential to be extended for a further 1-2 years subject to performance and funding availability.

Candidates will have a completed or near-complete PhD in Philosophy or another discipline involving philosophy of physics, by the post start-date. Candidates must have a strong or strongly-developing research record in the philosophy of physics and demonstrate a broad knowledge of the philosophy of physics. Candidates should display evidence of outstanding teaching abilities, including the ability to teach broadly in the philosophy of physics at a level that is accessible to undergraduates at the London School of Economics.

Candidates should also possess excellent written and oral communication skills.

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities. In addition, the LSE Fellow in Philosophy will have access to the LSE Nursery at discounted rates, as well as the possibility of a flexible teaching schedule.
