Job description

The Global Priorities Institute (GPI) offers Research Fellowship openings for Postdoctoral Research Fellows.

You will conduct advanced research in philosophy. At least 50% of your time will be spent on topics directly relevant to the Global Priorities Institute’s research agenda, which you will help to set. The role requires no teaching load and only minor supervision responsibilities, although teaching may be arranged if the fellow would like to do so. The Global Priorities Institute is an interdisciplinary research centre, which aims to develop and promote rigorous, scientific approaches to the question of how appropriately motivated actors can do good more effectively. GPI formally sits within the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford University.

Applicants are required to have (or be close to finishing) a PhD either in philosophy or in a closely related discipline (combined with equivalent experience and expertise in philosophy). Also essential are experience of independent research, outstanding academic ability, and an excellent publication record. In addition, the fellow must possess specialist knowledge of and a genuine interest in global priorities research.

This is a full-time position at the University of Oxford for a fixed term of four years, with a possibility of extension. Successful candidates may also choose to leave the position before the completion of four years at GPI, for example if they accept a faculty position at another university. Visa support is also available for successful applicants from overseas. We particularly encourage applications from women, black and ethnic minority candidates, as these groups are underrepresented in philosophy in general and at GPI in particular.

Salary will be between £32,817 - £40,322 p.a, depending on experience (Grade 7).
