Job posting: Middle Eastern Philosophy in Sussex

leave a comment »

I thought the following add might be of interest to some of you:

As part of a significant investment in the study of the Middle East, the University of Sussex wishes to appoint a promising scholar to a Lectureship in Philosophy.

The precise area of specialization is open. However, applications are especially welcome from scholars working on the history of one or more Middle Eastern philosophical traditions; or political philosophers exploring issues such as national and/or ethnic identity; legitimacy of government; theories of rights; theories of democracy; the nature of citizenship; just war theory; legal theory with an emphasis on international or interstate relations.

The individual we seek will possess a profile of high quality published work; clear plans for future research; demonstrable excellence as a teacher; and an entrepreneurial attitude to generating research grant income.

He or she will join a friendly, intellectually invigorating department, committed to dialogue across philosophical traditions. We seek a colleague who will contribute fully to the life of the department and enjoy interacting with our highly engaged and intellectually able student community.
