A two-year post-doctoral research fellowship is available within a project on ‘Appearance, Discrimination, and Disadvantage’ that is being funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The post will be held in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick under the supervision of Andrew Mason. The primary objective of the project is to address two questions: When is discrimination on the basis of appearance unjust? Even when discrimination on the basis of appearance is just, can it generate unjust outcomes?

For more details, see the project summary.

The post-doctoral research fellow (PRF) will require research skills in normative political theory. He or she will also possess the ability to survey literatures related to, first, the legal regulation of appearance discrimination and, second, the economic advantages and disadvantages associated with appearance, and to identify and address issues of normative significance within these literatures. There will be the opportunity to co-author articles on the project themes and the successful candidate will be expected to pursue independent research in the area, leading to publication.

There will be some administrative responsibilities associated with the post. The PDR will be expected to help organise a workshop and to manage a website associated with the project.
