We wish to appoint a two year, fixed term Lecturer in Philosophy within the Department of Philosophy, which forms part of the School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies. The successful candidate will teach Contemporary Epistemology and Philosophy of Language to an advanced level, and must therefore be able to demonstrate expertise in these areas.

Candidates will hold a doctorate in philosophy at the time of appointment and will be expected to show a commitment to outstanding teaching at all levels, from first-year undergraduate teaching to supervision of master’s degree dissertations.
