Job description

Applications are invited for a full-time Career Development Fellow to teach and help lead course modules for the Masters in Practical Ethics, and carry out associated duties, including syllabus preparation and assisting with student admissions.

The Fellow will also conduct collaborative and independent research in practical ethics on themes of interest to the Oxford Uehiro Centre and its major research projects. These research themes may include AI ethics, data ethics or climate/environmental ethics but while the ability and motivation to pursue high quality research in one or more of these areas is desirable, it is not essential to the post.

The weighting of teaching-related and research duties will vary over the course of the year, but the Fellow will spend half their work time each year conducting research.

This post is fixed term for four years from the date of appointment and the Fellow will be located in central Oxford at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, which is part of the Faculty of Philosophy. The Fellow will report to Professor Guy Kahane (MSt. Course Director).  

The successful candidate will be someone with a doctorate in philosophy with specialisation in practical ethics, or other relevant area of moral philosophy. Also essential are excellent teaching skills and relevant experience in teaching ethics and sufficient subject knowledge to develop course materials; excellent research skills in practical ethics and an outstanding research record.

Applications are to be submitted online, no later than midday (UK time) on 11 August 2022.

Interviews are likely to take place during the week commencing 15 August 2022.
