This post is for a fixed term of 12 months and will commence on 1 October 2022.
The person appointed will be expected to be able to deliver lectures in Philosophy of Physics to undergraduates, to provide graduate teaching (classes or supervision) to masters students, and to deliver an average of 8 contact hours per week during term time of undergraduate tutorial teaching for Pembroke College.

For the college, the successful candidate must be able to provide tutorials in the undergraduate Philosophy of Physics modules as well as provide undergraduate small group teaching (classes and/or tutorials) across a further range of areas in theoretical philosophy. These are, for first year students: introductory and intermediate logic, and introductory metaphysics and epistemology (the ‘General Philosophy’ module). For higher year undergraduates, these are: Knowledge and Reality (a metaphysics and epistemology module studied in second or third year) and general philosophy of science. Further information can be found here.
The successful candidate should normally have received the degree of PhD or DPhil in Philosophy, or a closely related discipline, with an area of specialisation in Philosophy of Physics, or at least have submitted a completed doctoral dissertation for examination by the closing date for applications to this post.
