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

An ability to contribute to the teaching of at least one of the following courses is essential: PH240/PH440 Ethics of Data and AI and PH341 PPE Applications. An ability to contribute more broadly to the Department’s teaching is desirable. The post permits substantial time for research, and the post-holder will be expected to contribute to the research culture and intellectual life of the department in their areas of specialization.

Candidates should have:

·       A completed PhD in Philosophy or another relevant discipline (or a PhD near completion) by the post start date;

·       A developing, high-quality research record in Philosophy relevant to the teaching areas listed above;

·       Excellent communication and presentation skills;

·       A proven commitment to excellent teaching and to fostering a positive learning environment for students, as evidenced by feedback from students and colleagues.
