Job description

About the role. UCL is looking to make a permanent appointment in engaged philosophy, related to health or public policy. The successful candidate will be keenly interested in how excellent philosophy can make a difference in the world.

The appointment will be at Lecturer level (£50,084–£58,895) or Associate Professor level (£63,921–£69,414; both figures include London Allowance).

The successful candidate will teach up to four full modules each academic year. This is a new role, which will allow the department to build a greater strategic focus in engaged and policy related philosophy, including contributing to a new MA Philosophy, Public Policy and Social Change. 

About you. You will hold a PhD in Philosophy and be able to demonstrate clear evidence of excellence in engaged philosophical research related to health or public policy.

You will demonstrate the potential to produce research impact of outstanding reach and significance and will have experience of teaching, supervision and administration in a higher education setting.

As London’s Global University, we are committed to equality of opportunity, to being fair and inclusive, and to being a place where all belong. We therefore particularly encourage applications from candidates whose backgrounds are typically underrepresented in Philosophy.

About us. UCL's Department of Philosophy is one of the leading departments in the UK. In the 2021 REF, 60% of our overall profile received the top grade (4*), the highest of any UK philosophy department.

We offer several undergraduate degree programmes. Undergraduate first- and second-year modules largely involve a weekly one-hour lecture plus a one-hour seminar; third-year modules usually consist of a weekly two-hour seminar. We offer a taught master’s programme, and a prestigious research master’s and PhD. Master’s-level modules usually consist of a weekly two-hour seminar.
