Senior Lecturer in Philosophy – University of the West of England, Bristol

The successful applicant will be working in the Philosophy team within the Department of Health and Social Sciences at UWE.

The ethos of philosophy at UWE is non-partisan and problem-focused in its approach to teaching and research. We have particular strengths in European Philosophy (broadly conceived) and specifically 19th and 20th Century German philosophy, 20th Century French philosophy, phenomenology, philosophy of nature, and philosophy of technology. We stress the importance of history of philosophy (including ancient philosophy) in understanding the development of philosophical problems. We welcome candidates who broadly fit into this context.

While there are no essential specialist requirements, desirable areas of competence might include ancient philosophy, and also there is a focus within our Department and Faculty on health and human flourishing (broadly conceived and including global health) and biotechnology. Where appropriate it would be helpful to highlight competence in these areas; they are by no means essential, however.

We are extremely proud of the excellent experience that our students have studying with us. Our programme scores 100% for overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey in most years, and came 4th in the Guardian league table for 2015. In order to sustain this level of excellence, we place a very high priority on our teaching and on developing strong relationships with our students.
