Job description

The Department of Philosophy is seeking to make an appointment at Lecturer level (US equivalent of Assistant Professor).  The successful candidate must have a PhD in Philosophy (by the time she or he commences duties). Although the area of specialism is open, our preference would be to appoint a candidate with expertise in epistemology or cognate areas of theoretical philosophy.

It is hoped that the successful candidate for this permanent post will commence duties in July 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.




  • PhD in philosophy by commencement of duties



The successful candidate will be expected to undertake research and to teach both undergraduate and postgraduate (Honours/Masters) courses, provide supervision for postgraduate (Masters and Doctoral) dissertations, participate in departmental academic activities, and take some administrative responsibility. The usual teaching load is one undergraduate course per semester, one postgraduate course per year in addition to supervision of postgraduate students.

The annual cost of employment, including benefits at Lecturer Level is R683 358
