Lectureship in Philosophy of Mind, York (U.K.)

http://www.york.ac.uk/depts/phil/
Contact: Tom Stoneham, tom.stoneham@york.ac.uk

The Department of Philosophy at the University of York seeks to appoint four full-time, permanent Lecturers in Philosophy from 1st October 2011 in the areas of Philosophy of Mind, Ethics and History of Philosophy. The successful candidates will be expected to teach undergraduates and postgraduates, to recruit and supervise research students, to assist in the administration of the Department, to conduct original research and to take an active role in the research culture of the Department.

The Department is particularly interested in candidates with active research projects in any of the following areas: Intentionality, Conscious States (especially Perception, Imagination, Emotions), Metaphysics of Mind, Practical Reason (including Rational Choice theory), Moral Psychology, and the History of Philosophy in the 19th and 20th centuries (including the Kantian and phenomenological traditions). However, we also welcome applications from candidates whose research complements any other existing area of expertise. The Department does not encourage over-specialization and we will be looking for candidates who can demonstrate complementary areas of competence such as Metaphysics or Aesthetics.

Due to its current gender imbalance, the Department particularly encourages applications from suitably qualified women.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Tom Stoneham (Head of Department), by telephone (+44-1904-433258) or email (tom.stoneham@york.ac.uk).

Further particulars are available from the Department's homepage:
