Applications are invited for a full-time Career Development Fellow to teach and help lead course modules for the Masters in Practical Ethics, and carry out associated duties, including syllabus preparation and assisting with student admissions.

The successful candidate will be someone with a doctorate in philosophy with specialisation in practical ethics, or other relevant area of moral philosophy. Also essential are excellent teaching skills and relevant experience in teaching ethics and sufficient subject knowledge to develop course materials; excellent research skills in practical ethics and an outstanding research record.

Interviews are likely to take place during the week commencing 15 August 2022.
