Temporary Lecturer in Philosophy

01 Feb 2013 2:54 AM | Anonymous

The Faculty of Philosophy is seeking to appoint a Temporary Lecturer in Philosophy from 1st October 2013. The limit of tenure is nine months, ending on 30th June 2014 to provide cover resulting from Dr Angela Breitenbach's award of a Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship.

The salary will be £37,382 pa (pro rata for the period of tenure). This vacancy presents an excellent opportunity particularly for an early career scholar to gain teaching experience and research support within a prestigious philosophy department. The Lectureship will be based in central Cambridge.

Research specialty may be in any area of Philosophy, but history of philosophy or aesthetics would be an advantage. Ability to teach at undergraduate level in one or more of the following areas is essential: Modern Philosophy (including Hume and Kant), and Aesthetics. There may also be opportunities to teach in other areas. Applicants must already either have a PhD or expect to have had their PhD viva in a relevant subject area by 30th September 2013. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to participate in College teaching for additional remuneration.

The person appointed will be required to give 40 lectures, to supervise MPhil and PhD students, to examine at both undergraduate and graduate level, and to contribute to the Faculty's work in research.

Applications must be submitted by 12:00 hours GMT (midday) on 1st March 2013 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: http://www.phil.cam.ac.uk/job_apps_online/

Applicants must upload a curriculum vitae (including a list of publications), a one-page statement of research interests and future 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.

Using the Job Applications system, candidates need to submit automated requests to their two referees. References will need to be submitted using the Job Applications system by the application deadline. The application system also includes the option to submit a candidate's whole dossier as a PDF (up to 8Mb).
