Lecturer in Philosophy

University of Leeds

Lecturer in Philosophy or Religion, and Liberal Arts

Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out research and teaching at the interface of Philosophy, Religion, and Liberal Arts? Do you have an excellent research record and a potential for establishing an international reputation? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University? Would you like to join and to contribute to the vibrant interdisciplinary School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science at the University of Leeds?

As a Lecturer, you will carry out research and teaching in areas that overlap between Philosophy, Religion, and Liberal Arts in a School that fully integrates philosophy, religion, and history of science. You will bring a demonstrable commitment to promoting diversity, equality and inclusion in your academic practice, and we welcome especially applications from candidates who will contribute to our efforts to diversify our curricula and research.

We have the following particular teaching needs: the delivery, and diversification of, core modules in the interdisciplinary Liberal Arts degree programme (); continental philosophy (especially existentialism); and philosophy of race/race theory. You will teach at all levels of our varied undergraduate programmes, provide dissertation supervision, contribute to appropriate MA programmes, and supervise research students. All of this teaching could be deliverable from the broad perspective of either philosophy or religious studies/theology.

This position includes within it a specific administrative/managerial role: you will be a crucial part of the team providing effective management of the Liberal Arts programme (in addition to taking on any other appropriate administrative duties within School, Faculty and wider University.) You will have a PhD (or be very close to completing a PhD) in Philosophy, Theology/Religious Studies or a cognate discipline, and you will have relevant teaching experience.
