Lecturer in Political Philosophy

Vacancy Reference: 058646

Salary: Grade, level, 7, £35,845 – £40,322 per annum

This post is full time (35 hours per week) and is offered on an open-ended basis.

The University of Glasgow is seeking to appoint a lecturer in political philosophy.  This is a permanent research and teaching position, roughly equivalent to assistant professor in North America.

The successful candidate will be a team-player with a developing research profile in political philosophy and capable of making a strong contribution to teaching and supervision at all levels. We have a particular interest in candidates whose research addresses global challenges, including racial and social justice, human rights, and climate change.

In addition, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to teach on a new interdisciplinary MSc in Global Human Rights, and to collaborate with the Scottish Council on Global Affairs, a new multi-institutional body hosted by the University of Glasgow in 2021-23. 

Philosophy has an illustrious history at Glasgow, where it has been taught since 1451 by such luminaries as Frances Hutcheson, Thomas Reid, and Adam Smith.  With this appointment, our friendly and vibrant community will include 20 permanent staff as well as postdocs, visiting researchers, and our numerous students.  Our student programmes cover all levels, including popular pre-honours courses, two large honours years, three separate MScs, and a successful doctoral programme.  Our research and teaching cover the full breadth of the discipline.

The University offers excellent support for research and public engagement activity, and it allocates time for lecturers to complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Practice.  Glasgow’s Early Career Development Programme provides one-to-one mentoring to help staff achieve timely promotion. 

The University aims to foster an inclusive climate and to ensure equality in our working, research, and learning and teaching environments. We strongly welcome applications from members of under-represented groups, including BAME colleagues and women. We endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation to promoting gender equality.

Start date: 1 September 2021 – 1 September 2022, subject to negotiation.

We strongly endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation in promoting gender equity. Applications are therefore particularly welcome from women and other under-represented groups.  In line with the commitments in the University of Glasgow’s Gaelic Language Plan, we also welcome and value skills in Gaelic language for anyone working within areas where key Gaelic services are delivered, in particular within the School of Humanities / Sgoil nan Daonnachdan and the College of Arts.
