Job description

This is a 3-year, full-time position, funded as a part of the European Research Council starting grant project "Corporate Moral Progress", with Kenneth Silver as the PI.

We are looking for someone with a demonstrated specialization in moral psychology or social philosophy, as well as with an interest in business ethics and group/corporate agency (or social ontology more broadly). The aim is to choose a candidate with their own research stream, yet capable of developing a number of projects within the scope of the grant, both alone and in collaboration with the other members of the team. PhD should be secure by the time of appointment.

The project is housed within the Trinity Business School at Trinity College Dublin. As such, preference will be given to candidates that communicate a willingness if not enthusiasm for working within a business school, and provide any evidence of such an interest.

Candidates chosen for interviews will be provided with more details of the grant, and the interview will focus on considering ways the candidate could contribute to it (rather than all applicants writing a one-use document to this effect).

Pay: €41,209 (plus pension, which vests after 2 years) - This is the first point on the Postdoctoral Research salary scale, which increases annually.

To apply, send a CV and cover letter to Kenneth Silver ([email protected]) before or on Dec. 1st. Late applicants welcome, though it cannot be guaranteed that they will be equally considered. References may be requested at the interview stage.

Start date negotiable (by months, not years).
