Lecturer in Philosophy

The Philosophy Department at Otago falls squarely within the analytic tradition, broadly construed, and we are seeking to appoint a philosopher with research and teaching interests in at least one of the following areas: metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of science or philosophy of mind.

The Department places a high priority on research informed teaching and is committed to assisting staff to achieve their individual research goals. The Department has been rated 1st among New Zealand philosophy departments and among the top two of New Zealand's highest performing research departments in all subjects in the last three national Performance Based Research Fund assessments (www.tec.govt.nz<http://www.tec.govt.nz>).

Candidates should have demonstrated strengths in teaching and research, and have completed or be about to complete a PhD degree. The successful applicant will be required to teach between two and a half and three papers per year or the equivalent at various levels, to supervise research at honours and postgraduate levels, to be actively engaged in research, and to carry out administrative duties.
