Stipendiary Lecturership in Philosophy – closing date 25 September

In addition, with Professor Philipp Koralus, the post-holder will be expected to play a full role in the running of Philosophy in the College, including arranging tuition in Philosophy, participating in the admissions process, setting and marking College examinations, and taking a role in the pastoral care of undergraduates.
