Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in Moral or Political Philosophy? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University? Would you like to join and contribute to a vibrant philosophical community within the interdisciplinary School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science?
As Lecturer, you will be an active researcher specialising in Moral or Political Philosophy, producing high-quality publications and contributing to the overall research environment of the School. You will carry out teaching in these and other areas of your competence across our BA and MA programmes. You will contribute to the supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations and to the personal tutoring of undergraduate students, and take on appropriate administrative duties. You will have ample opportunity to participate in and contribute to the activities of the Centre for Aesthetic, Moral, and Political Philosophy (CAMP).
You will have at least submitted your PhD thesis in Philosophy or a cognate field by the beginning of the appointment, and you will have relevant subject expertise and teaching experience. We are open to different approaches to moral and political philosophy. Given our current strengths, we are particularly interested in candidates specialising in normative ethics, moral psychology, or political philosophy.
The School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science values an inclusive working and teaching environment and our aim is to develop a diverse staff and student community reflective of this. We select candidates on the basis of merit and ability and aspire to further diversify our School and Faculty community. We particularly welcome applications from candidates belonging to groups that have been under-represented in the University, including but not limited to: people who identify as Black, Asian or with other non-white ethnic groups, people who identify as LGBTQ+, and disabled people.
