University of Oxford
Grade 7: £29,249 – £31,020 per annum
A two-year research and teaching appointment in Philosophy of Psychiatry: Mind, Value, and Mental Health is available for an outstanding academic at an early stage of his or her career. The successful candidate will be expected to take up appointment between 1 September 2012 and 1 January 2013.
Eligible candidates must hold a masters degree and either have completed a PhD or, for candidates in national education systems where the PhD does not apply, be a candidate for the appropriate doctoral examination; be at an early stage of an academic career, and if holding a doctorate have completed it within the past four years (from 1 October 2012), excluding justified career breaks. Candidates who already hold a permanent academic appointment will not be considered.
The successful candidate will be expected to pursue and publish the results of independent research in philosophy of psychiatry broadly conceived; undertake on average 2-3 hours of teaching each week during term time, for the University or a college; and play a pivotal or leading role in Faculty initiatives in the area of philosophy of psychiatry. He or she will be provided with office space in the Humanities Divisional Office in the Radcliffe Infirmary Main Building in the centre of Oxford.
