Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out research and teaching in some areas at the interface of Philosophy and Religion, with a competence in and a passion for interdisciplinary teaching? Do you have an excellent research record and a potential for establishing an international reputation? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University? Would you like to join and contribute to the vibrant interdisciplinary School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science at the University of Leeds?

As a Lecturer, you will carry out research and teaching at the interface between philosophy, religion, and the liberal arts in a School that fully integrates philosophy, religion, and history of science.

You will be able to teach at all levels of our varied undergraduate programmes, and to provide dissertation supervision. You will also contribute to relevant MA programmes and supervise research students. You will have a PhD in Philosophy, Theology/Religious Studies or cognate discipline and relevant teaching experience. You will also contribute to the effective management of the School, Faculty and wider University.
