Job description

We wish to appoint a Senior Lecturer within the Department of Philosophy, which forms part of the School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies. The area of specialisation for this post is open. Applicants whose research interests include topics or methods that are currently under-represented in philosophy are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate must be able to contribute to core teaching and research interaction within the department.  

The successful candidate will be a scholar with a growing international research reputation and a commitment to delivering high quality teaching within the broad field of Philosophy. The successful candidate will be expected to have a range of interests, to be active in research publications that strengthen or complement those in the department and to be capable of teaching the subject to undergraduate and taught postgraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds. A proven track record of securing significant grant funding and leading high quality externally funded research projects, or a clear potential to do so, would be very desirable.  

Candidates will hold a doctorate in philosophy and will be expected to show a commitment to outstanding teaching at all levels, from first-year undergraduate teaching to postgraduate supervision. Candidates should also have some familiarity with grant seeking processes in relation to research councils and other sources.  

Informal enquiries about this post may be directed either to the Head of Department, Dr Simon Prosser (sjp7@st-andrews.ac.uk), or to Professor Jessica Brown (jab30@st-andrews.ac.uk).  

The Department of Philosophy is committed to providing an open, equitable, and inclusive work environment, which is free from bullying and harassment and welcoming to all. The School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies has received the Athena Swan bronze award.  

Applications are particularly welcome from women, people from the Black, Asian, Minority or Ethnic (BAME) community and other protected characteristics who are under-represented in Academic posts at the University.  

The University of St Andrews is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all, as demonstrated through its work on the Gender and Race Equality Charters, its Athena SWAN award for women in science, its HR Excellence in Research Award, and its signing of the LGBT Charter: see  http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/.  

Closing Date: 18th December 2020
