The position, which is full-time, is for approximately 11 months, with start date August 1, 2022 (or according to agreement).
The position involves teaching at introductory and possibly also advanced level. The teaching, at most five courses during the academic year 2022-2023, can be within any of the department’s subject areas (practical philosophy, theoretical philosophy and aesthetics).

Among courses that the successful applicant might teach are courses in ethics, political philosophy, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of science, and analytic aesthetics.
To be qualified for appointment applicants must hold a PhD in philosophy or aesthetics, or have achieved equivalent scientific competence. The successful candidate must also have pedagogical training, or in some other way have acquired equivalent competence, and they must have the scientific competence, pedagogical ability and professional competence needed to carry out the tasks associated with the position.
