The post-holder will work in close collaboration with Peter Sowerby Chair Professor Elselijn Kingma to develop and expand the Philosophy & Medicine Project in all areas: research, teaching and public outreach.
We are seeking an excellent philosopher with the desire and ability to develop and deliver new teaching, outreach and research in any area of Philosophy with impact, application or significance to medicine, nursing or midwifery. We particularly welcome candidates with relevant backgrounds in medicine, nursing, midwifery, or the health sciences. The successful candidate will be a supportive, effective and inspiring teacher of both medical and philosophy students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and will bring enthusiasm and a collaborative approach.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 2 years.
The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.
Skills, knowledge, and experience
How to Apply:
Applications need to be received by 27 June 2021. Please see here for full details of the post and how to apply. As part of their application, applicants should provide:
(1) a personal statement
(2) a CV, with a list of their publications
(3) the names and contact details for two referees
(4) a recent piece of research on a topic relevant to the post of no more than 5,000 words (this may be an indicated portion of a larger piece of work)
The Department will request references for longlisted candidates. Interviews of shortlisted candidates will take place online in July 2021, and we hope to inform the successful applicant toward the beginning of August 2021.
We especially encourage members of marginalized groups to apply in recognition of the underrepresentation in Philosophy and Medicine of members of certain marginalized groups, including ethnic minorities, women, persons with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and others, and the deficits this creates in Philosophical and medical research and governance.
