This appointment is due to commence from 1 September 2023

The Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method is committed to doing excellent research and teaching in analytic philosophy in a manner that is continuous with the social and natural sciences and socially relevant. It is also committed to creating an inclusive environment for philosophical debate that engages with a wide range of perspectives.

Candidates must have expertise and research interests in Philosophy.

(More information about our teaching programmes can be found on the Department’s website.) They must also be willing and able to develop connections in research and teaching with other disciplines at LSE.

Candidates will have a track record or trajectory of internationally excellent publications and proven ability to publish in top journals or with leading book publishers in Philosophy. Candidates must also have a well-developed strategy for future research that has the potential to result in world-leading publications. They will have, or be very near completion of, a PhD in Philosophy or related field by the post start date. In addition, candidates will have a proven commitment to excellent teaching and to fostering a positive learning environment for students, as evidenced by feedback from students and colleagues.
