Job description

Candidates will be expected to be engaged in high-level research, to publish in their specialist field, to seek opportunities to win external funding for their research, to teach and examine undergraduates, and to supervise and examine MPhil and PhD postgraduate work.

It is expected that candidates will have a PhD in Philosophy (or relevant area) by the time of the application deadline. Candidates will have an outstanding record of excellence in research, publication and teaching in Philosophy, relative to their stage of career.

The Lectureship is based in the Faculty of Philosophy, in central Cambridge. The position is permanent, subject to the satisfactory completion of an initial probationary period.

Most academic staff are also invited to join a College as a Fellow. College teaching is remunerated separately from the University teaching, and appointment to a College is a separate matter from a University appointment. Membership of a College adds an important social and intellectual dimension for many academic staff.

We welcome applications from all and especially encourage applications from members of groups underrepresented in UK academic Philosophy and from people marginalised on any of the grounds enumerated under the UK Equality Act 2010.

For queries about the application process, please contact HR on [email protected] 

Enquiries about academic matters may be made to Professor Alexander Bird at [email protected]

The University actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from all sections of society.

The University has a responsibility to ensure that all employees are eligible to live and work in the UK.
