The Department of Philosophy is seeking to appoint a full-time Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Global Ethics (start date September 2013 or as near as possible after). The successful candidate will be the Deputy Director of the Centre for the Study of Global Ethics and will work with Professor Heather Widdows, the Director of the Centre to develop and promote the Centre with regard to research, policy work and teaching. Accordingly the successful candidate must have a willingness and enthusiasm for multidisciplinary work – particularly with regard to research grants and teaching – and also a desire to influence policy and practice and to work with policy-makers, practitioners and activists to this end. We are looking for someone who is not only an excellent philosopher but also has a strong interest in pro-active work in the real world (influencing policy, policy makers, activism, outreach, etc.). We want someone not only to push the boundaries of knowledge, but also someone to use their platform as Deputy Director of the Centre for the Study of Global Ethics to influence relevant policy and practice.
The successful candidate is likely to specialise in applied ethics, moral philosophy, or political philosophy. However, as long as their area of research falls within Philosophy (understood as submittable to the philosophy sub-panel in the REF) they are eligible to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching in the Department, and in particular we are seeking to appoint a candidate who can teach in the areas of bioethics, global justice and human rights, as well as contribute to ethics teaching in the core Philosophy undergraduate degree. The candidate will be expected to be involved in examining within the department and play their part in administration and innovation as required.
Informal enquiries about the position may be made to Dr Iain Law, Head of the Philosophy Department (firstname.lastname@example.org).
