University College


The College proposes to appoint a fixed-term stipendiary Lecturer in Philosophy for two years from 1 October 2001, during Dr Ian Rumfitt's leave as holder of a Philip Leverhulme Prize. The Lecturer will be required to teach an average of twelve hours a week averaged over three terms. He or she will also be required to take a full part in the administration of the subject, including admissions.

The Lecturer must be able to teach at least two of the main first-year subjects in the Philosophy paper for PPE (Descartes' Meditations, Mill's Utilitarianism, Elementary Formal Logic); and at least two of the main second-year subjects (History of Philosophy from Descartes to Kant, Knowledge and Reality, Ethics); and to contribute to the teaching of some Finals options. (Alternatively, he or she could teach Plato's Meno and Euthyphro for Mods and Plato's Republic and Aristotle's Ethics for Finals, together with some of the areas of modern philosophy listed above.)

The salary will be on the scale £15,794 to £19,482. The Lecturer will have a teaching room in College and will be entitled to common table.

Applications, including a curriculum vitae, the names and addresses of three referees, and a statement of which of the areas listed above the applicant is able to teach, should be sent to the Senior Tutor, University College, Oxford, OX1 4BH, by 7 June 2001. Candidates should ask their referees to write direct to the Senior Tutor, or to e-mail their references (college.office@univ.ox.ac.uk), by that date. Interviews will be held in the week beginning 18 June 2001.

University College is an equal opportunities employer.
