Job description

The Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford, in association with Mansfield College, wishes to appoint a Departmental Lecturer in Moral Philosophy to cover the teaching and other duties of a permanent postholder during a period of flexible retirement. This post is for a fixed term of 24 months and will commence on 1 October 2022.

 The person appointed will be expected to be able to deliver lectures in Moral Philosophy to undergraduates, and to provide graduate teaching (classes or supervision). They will be expected to deliver 4 contact hours per week during term time of undergraduate tutorial teaching for Mansfield College. In addition, the appointed person will conduct research in Moral Philosophy, and will undertake administration for the Faculty and the College including, but not limited to, participating in the annual admissions exercises and acting as assessor for undergraduate and graduate examinations.

For the college, the successful candidate must be able to give tutorials to first year undergraduates in General Philosophy (i.e., introductory metaphysics and epistemology), and to advanced undergraduates (second year and above) in Ethics, and in at least two more advanced philosophy modules (including at least one of Knowledge and Reality, or Plato’s Republic in translation). The ability to teach introductory logic would be an advantage but is not a necessity. Further information about the philosophy modules can be found here.

The successful candidate should normally have received the degree of PhD or DPhil in Philosophy, or a closely related discipline, or at least have submitted a completed doctoral dissertation for examination by the closing date for applications to this post.

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 Moral Philosophy. They must provide evidence of the ability to provide excellent teaching and must have the ability and willingness to assume pastoral responsibilities associated with undergraduate and graduate teaching, and to act as an assessor at graduate and undergraduate level.
