Lecturer in Philosophy
Durham University - Arts & Humanities
Salary: 30424 - 44607 (Grade 7/8)

This is a non-fixed-term, full-time lectureship, tenable from 1 October 
2013. The successful applicant will have a PhD or equivalent, some strong 
publications, and clear research plans. Her/his principal research 
interests will be in one or more of the following: Ethics; Philosophy of 
Mind and/or Language; Metaphysics. She/he will be able to provide high 
quality teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level. There is 
considerable flexibility concerning the areas of teaching to be covered. 
However, we have teaching needs in the following: Ethics; Political 
Philosophy; Philosophy of Mind and Language; Kant. The ability to teach in 
one or more of these areas may be an advantage. The successful applicant 
will also take on some administrative responsibilities, and will be 
expected to contribute to the lively research culture of the department.

We offer flexible working conditions to accommodate the needs of parents 
with young children. We are also very happy to consider applications for 
part-time employment and job-sharing.

We are a pluralistic and friendly department, which accommodates work in 
'analytic', 'Continental' and non-Western philosophical traditions. 
Current research by our staff and postgraduate students spans a notably 
diverse range of philosophical, historical and interdisciplinary topics. 
It is focused around the activities of five research groups/clusters:

. Aesthetics
. Applied Phenomenology
. Ethics
. History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine
. Mind, Language and Metaphysics

We are keen to appoint an excellent early-career philosopher, whose 
research will complement and enhance the activities of our 'Ethics' and/or 
our 'Mind, Language and Metaphysics' clusters.

The successful candidate must be in a position to take up the appointment 
on 1st October 2013.

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority 
ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in the 
University.
