Job description

The Philosophy Department at the University of Edinburgh (www.ed.ac.uk/ppls/philosophy)  is seeking expressions of interest in the Future Leaders Fellowship from UK Research and Innovation (www.ukri.org/funding/funding-opportunities/future-leaders-fellowships/) . This scheme offers the opportunity for a research-focused post for 4 to 7 years, followed by an ongoing teaching+research+admin post within our department (on a typical 40/40/20 split).

Please note: This is effectively a permanent faculty position that begins with 4 to 7 years of research, along with generous supporting research funds for this period. The position is contingent on a UKRI application being successful. There is opportunity for appointment at both Grade 8 and Grade 9 (roughly corresponding to Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in the UK system or tenured assistant/associate prof in the North American system).

We anticipate the scheme will be highly competitive and only candidates who are early-career researchers (within ~6-7 years post-PhD) with very strong publication records relative to career stage will be considered for support.   If you are interested, please email  PPLS.Philosophy@ed.ac.uk including ‘Interest in UKRI Fellowship’ in the subject of your email and attaching a current CV in pdf format and a 2 page research statement by Dec 1st at the latest.

We will be in touch with applicants who are short-listed to progress to the next stage. The Philosophy Department and the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences will choose applicants with whom to develop full applications to submit to UKRI.

Instructions
