The Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method seeks applications for an Assistant Professorship in Philosophy, to start September 2019.
The Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method seeks to appoint an Assistant Professor. The successful candidate will contribute to the intellectual life of the School through conducting and publishing outstanding quality research, engaging in high quality teaching as instructed by the Head of Department, and participating in the School and wider Department activities.
This appointment is due to commence on 2 September 2019 at a salary of no less than £54,984 per annum (pay award pending).
Candidates must have expertise and research interests in Philosophy. Area of research specialisation is open, except that candidates must be willing and able to make a research-led contribution to the teaching of Philosophy courses related to public policy in the MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy and the BSc in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Philosophy and public policy need not, however, be the main focus of one’s research, and teaching obligations will not necessarily be exclusively focussed in this area.
You will have a track record or trajectory of internationally excellent publications and proven ability or potential to publish in top journals or with leading book publishers in Philosophy. You will also have a clear, well developed and viable strategy for future outstanding research that has the potential to result in world-leading publications. You will have, or be near completion of, a PhD in Philosophy or related field by the post start date. In addition, you will have a proven commitment to excellent teaching and to fostering a positive learning environment for students, as evidenced by feedback from students and colleagues regarding teaching quality.
