The Philosophy Department at Durham University is a centre for world-leading research in a wide range of fields, with four main research clusters: ‘Aesthetics, Ethics and Politics’; ‘History of Philosophy’; ‘Mind, Language and Metaphysics’ and ‘Science, Medicine and Society’. We are searching for one outstanding researcher and teacher in any area of philosophy, who would complement and enhance one or more of these research clusters. 

The Department has been ranked as one of the top 50 philosophy departments in the world by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019. It is home to the ‘Centre for Humanities Engaging Science and Society’ (CHESS), and has strong links with several interdisciplinary research centres such as the ‘Centre for the Ethics of Cultural Heritage’ and the ‘Centre for Ancient and Medieval Philosophy’. At postgraduate and undergraduate level, students can choose from a wide range of topics spanning the whole discipline of philosophy. The Department has one of the largest PhD programmes in the UK, and many of our students go on to pursue highly successful academic careers.
