A fixed-term research and teaching appointment in Philosophy of Cognitive Science is available from 1 October 2009 for two years. This initiative is designed to provide an intensive and supported career development opportunity for an outstanding academic at an early stage of his or her career, and to promote equality of opportunity by helping to create a more diverse pool of potential candidates for future academic posts at Oxford or elsewhere. Applications for this post are especially welcome from women and ethnic minorities, who are under-represented among the University’s academic staff (section 38 of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 and section 48 of the Race Relations Act 1976 apply).
This Fellowship is offered by the Faculty of Philosophy. The successful candidate must have obtained his or her doctorate by 1 October 2009, and should not normally have completed it earlier than 1 October 2005. He or she will have a proven track record of research in the area of Philosophy of Cognitive Science, and will demonstrate potential for producing outstanding research in this area within the period of the Fellowship.
Postdoctoral Fellows are offered the opportunity to develop their expertise in both research and teaching. They will also have an academic mentor as well as a personalised career and professional development package, including the opportunity to undertake the University’s Postgraduate Diploma in Learning and Teaching.
