Part Time Job (Oxford): Stipendiary Lectureship (10 Hours) in Philosophy
Oriel College seeks to appoint a Stipendiary Lecturer in Philosophy from 1 October 2020 to 30 September 2021, to cover for Dr Oliver Pooley’s sabbatical leave. Candidates should hold or be studying for a doctorate in a relevant field of Philosophy, and should be able to demonstrate relevant teaching experience and be equipped to undertake tutorial teaching and associated duties.
The person appointed will be expected to undertake teaching for an average of 10 weighted hours per week during term time to undergraduates at Oriel College (the college might decide to appoint to a reduced stint if it decides this is appropriate). The Lecturer must be able to teach, for first year papers: General Philosophy; Introduction to Logic; Intermediate Logic (“Elements of Deductive Logic”); and two or more of the following finals papers: Knowledge and Reality (102); Philosophy of Logic and Language (108); Philosophy of Physics (121); Philosophy of Science (124); and Philosophical Logic (127).
The Lecturer will assist with general administration, the pastoral care of undergraduates, Open Days, outreach activities, and will participate in the whole process of undergraduate admissions (interviews themselves and any relevant meetings before and after the interviews). If the Lecturer holds a doctorate, he or she will be expected to act as an advisor of some graduate students.
The basic stipend will be according to the Senior Tutors’ Committee recommended scale (currently £22,926 to £25,785 per annum, depending on experience). Contributory membership of USS (the Universities Superannuation Scheme) is also offered. The Lecturer will be entitled to free lunch and dinner in the Senior Common Room.
