As a Lecturer, you will carry out research and teaching in at least one of the areas of Theoretical Philosophy (including philosophy of language, formal logic, philosophy of logic, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mind and action, philosophy of science). Other things being equal, preference will be given to candidates whose areas of specialisation or competence include philosophy of gender, race, disability, or other dimension of diversity. We hope to appoint someone who can both contribute to the traditional theoretical curriculum and also help the School move forward with the development of its teaching and/or research profile in one or more of these areas. Amongst the specialisms included within Theoretical Philosophy, we may additionally give preference to candidates able to contribute to the teaching of intermediate/advanced logic and/or philosophy of language.

You will be able to teach at all levels of our varied undergraduate programmes, and to provide dissertation supervision. You will also contribute to relevant MA programmes and supervise research students. The role additionally involves making a contribution to the effective management of the School, Faculty and wider University. 

You will have a PhD in Philosophy or cognate discipline and relevant teaching experience. You will have an excellent research record and a potential for establishing an international reputation.
