St Catherine’s College proposes to appoint a six-hour Stipendiary Lecturer in Philosophy, with effect from 1 October 2018. The Lecturership will be for one year whilst Professor Philipp Koralus is on sabbatical leave.

The Lecturer will be expected to teach six weighted hours a week averaged over the three terms (twenty-four weeks) of the academic teaching year (the College operates a weighting system whereby hours spent teaching groups larger than one person count for more than one hour). College teaching is in small groups (usually two or three students). The post-holder will be required to teach both of the following Preliminary Examinations subjects (first-year courses): General Philosophy and Moral Philosophy; and three or more Final Honour School (i.e. second year and above) papers, including Philosophy of Mind or Philosophy of Cognitive Science: details of these can be found at

In addition, the post-holder will be expected to act as the Director of Studies for Philosophy, playing a full role in the running of Philosophy in the College, including arranging tuition, participating in the admissions process, setting and marking College examinations, and taking a role in the pastoral care of undergraduates. Informal enquiries about the tutorial teaching requirements may be made to Professor Philipp Koralus (email:
