The Faculty of Philosophy and the Blavatnik School of Government are seeking to appoint an Associate Professor (or Professor) in Philosophy, in association with a non-tutorial Fellowship at Brasenose College.

Candidates must demonstrate a research record in Philosophy of international standing appropriate to the stage of their career; and must have research interests in Ethics and AI, the ability to deliver excellent teaching, the ability to supervise graduate students, and a willingness to undertake administration and pastoral responsibilities on behalf of Brasenose College and of the University.
