Faculty of Arts

Department of Philosophy


As part of its strategy of supporting research leave, the Department of Philosophy is seeking to appoint a temporary Lecturer for one year, beginning 1 September 2009. The post arises in the first instance out of the need to cover the study leave of members of staff. The lectureship covers undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and supervision in the following area:

History and Philosophy of Science (particularly history and philosophy of technology)

For this appointment you will have a PhD (awarded or nearing completion) in an appropriate area of History and Philosophy of Science, relevant experience of teaching within the discipline and will be developing a publication profile appropriate for submission in the next REF exercise.

You will also be able to demonstrate effective teaching skills and a range of delivery techniques and assessment methods.
