University Lecturership in Philosophy of Mathematics (Lady Margaret Hall) 
in Association with a Tutorship and Official Fellowship in Philosophy


The Faculty of Philosophy and Lady Margaret Hall propose to appoint to a 
University Lecturership in Philosophy, in association with a Tutorship and 
Official Fellowship, with effect from 1 October 2013, or as soon as 
possible thereafter.


The Area of Specialisation for this post is Philosophy of Mathematics. The 
successful candidate must be able to provide research-led teaching and 
supervision in this area at all levels, undergraduate and graduate. 
Applications from candidates whose work complements the research and 
teaching of the Faculty will be especially welcome. The successful
candidate will also be expected to provide teaching for the College, in 
the form of tutorials, on a range of introductory (i.e., first-year) and 
advanced (i.e., second-year and beyond) Philosophy subjects for 
undergraduates. Candidates should refer to the further particulars for 
full details of the teaching requirements for this post.


Candidates should have received a doctorate by 1 October 2013, or at least 
have submitted a completed doctoral dissertation for examination by that 
date, but candidates who do not meet this requirement may be considered if 
they have attained a comparable level of publication. The successful 
candidate must demonstrate a research record of international standing 
appropriate to the stage of his or her career; the ability to deliver 
excellent tutorial teaching and to give lectures and classes; the ability 
to act as an examiner; the ability to supervise graduate students; and a 
willingness to undertake administration and pastoral responsibilities on 
behalf of both the College and the University.


The combined College and University salary for this post will be on a 
scale from 42,883 to 57,581 (as at 1 August 2012) per annum. Additional 
College allowances are available as set out in the further particulars. 
The postholder will have an office in Lady Margaret Hall.


Further particulars, including details of how to apply, are available 
here.


Applications must be submitted by email to jobs@philosophy.ox.ac.uk no 
later than 12.00 noon on 18 January 2013.
