Durham University - Modern Languages

With an outstanding reputation for excellence in teaching, research and the employability of our students, the Department of Philosophy is one of the UK’s best. Our distinctive research environment encourages a diversity of interests and approaches - spanning Anglo-American, ‘Continental’, and non-Western philosophy - and benefits from an exceptionally high level of funding and collaboration. With interests in applied and professional ethics, you will enjoy an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the further development of outstanding research and excellent teaching. An impressive philosopher, your research (and research-led teaching) will complement and enhance the activities of our ‘Aesthetics, Ethics and Politics’ cluster.

Youll need:

  • A good first-degree, complemented by a PhD in Philosophy (either completed, or currently in progress).
  • The ability to produce world-class research, including a research plan which supports the activities of the department.
  • Proof that you have contributed to research groups, mentoring early career researchers.
  • The confidence to supervise PhD students.
  • To be willing to develop successful research project proposals, with the scope to secure funding or generate income.
  • Experience of delivering high-quality teaching in lectures and smaller study groups, with the ability to attain fellowship of the HEA.
  • Confident leadership and communication skills, with the willingness to work collaboratively as part of a team.

If you haven’t specifically met the above criteria but have recently completed or are concluding your PhD and feel you have the skills needed to do so, then you are invited to apply for the role at grade 7.
