This post is fixed term for the period 1 October 2022 up to 30 April 2025.

The successful candidate will have at least an area of competence in Feminist Philosophy and, additionally, an area of specialization in any area of analytic philosophy.  The candidate must be able to teach feminist philosophy to both graduate and undergraduate students.

For the college, the successful candidate must be able to provide tutorials in at least two of the three elements of the Introduction to Philosophy course taken by first-year philosophers: General Philosophy (i.e. introductory topics in metaphysics and epistemology); Moral Philosophy (studied via engagement with Mill’s Utilitarianism); and Introductory Logic.   Candidates should also be able to provide tutorials in a good range of advanced papers in Philosophy (i.e. those taken by students in the second year and beyond), including Knowledge and Reality.   Further information can be found here.

The successful candidate should normally have received the degree of PhD or DPhil in Philosophy, with an area of specialism in contemporary theoretical and/or practical philosophy, or a related discipline by 1 October 2022, or at least have submitted a completed doctoral dissertation for examination by that date.

Candidates must have an outstanding research record appropriate to the stage of their career with evidence of, or evidence of potential for producing, significant research in the area of Philosophy.
