Fixed-term Stipendiary Lectureship (6 hours per week) in Philosophy 1 April 2018 – 31 July 2019
Hertford College proposes to appoint a Stipendiary Lecturer in Philosophy. The Lectureship is fixed-term for four academic terms from 1 April 2018 (or as soon as possible thereafter) to 31 July 2019. It can be held in conjunction with another similar appointment to the extent that this is compatible with the responsibilities of the Lectureship.
The Lecturer will be under the direction of Professor Peter Millican, Gilbert Ryle Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy. The overall tutorial teaching load will be an average of six hours per week (in pairs and small classes) over the four terms, though the load may vary, and is likely to be heaviest in Hilary (spring) term 2019, when Prof. Millican will be on leave.
The successful candidate will be capable of teaching Ethics, both to first years taking the Moral Philosophy course based on Mill’s Utilitarianism and to upper-year students taking the Ethics paper (usually as part of the PPE core). Other teaching will be arranged in coordination with Prof. Millican and Dr Nick Tasker, who is also a six-hour Stipendiary Lecturer (and will be deputising for Prof. Millican during Hilary term 2019). Philosophy teaching in the College covers first-year compulsory courses and upper-year choices for PPE (typically nine students per year) and Computer Science and Philosophy (typically five students per year), though the College also has a few students who combine Philosophy with Mathematics, Physics, and Modern Languages.
