University Lectureship, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Cambridge
 Vacancy Reference No: GV02340
 Salary: ?37,756 - ?47,787 per annum

 The Faculty of Philosophy is seeking to appoint a University Lecturer in 
Philosophy. The successful candidate will be outstanding in teaching and 
research and must be able to take up their appointment on 1st September 
2014. The post is based in central Cambridge.

 The successful candidate will contribute to the Faculty's research and 
teaching at graduate and undergraduate levels. No particular area of 
research in philosophy is specified for this job, but an ability to teach 
in one (or ideally more) of the following areas (listed here in 
alphabetical order) would be very welcome: aesthetics, epistemology, 
ethics, history of philosophy (from 1600), formal and philosophical logic, 
philosophy of science, and political philosophy.

 The post is permanent, subject to the satisfactory completion of a review 
of the initial probationary period of office. This review is intended to 
be constructive and non-competitive, and most post-holders in Cambridge 
complete it satisfactorily.

 Applications must be submitted by 15.00 hours GMT on Friday January 10
 2014, using the Faculty's online Job Applications system. This can be found
 on the following webpage, along with the further particulars and a link to
 the CHRIS 6 form:

 research plans, a CHRIS 6 form (Parts I and III only), two samples of
 recent work (not exceeding 20,000 words in total), and a covering letter
 including details of the elements of the Faculty's undergraduate syllabus
 which the applicant would be prepared to teach. The undergraduate syllabus
 can be found here:

 Using the Job Applications system, candidates need to submit automated
 requests to their three referees. References will need to be submitted
