Lecturer in Applied and Inter-Disciplinary Ethics University of Leeds Faculty of Arts, Humanities & Cultures United Kingdom

Lecturer in Applied and Inter-Disciplinary Ethics



Are you an academic with a strong grounding in ethics who is committed to fostering the development of ethical understanding and reasoning skills, both inside and outside academia? Do you have experience of University teaching in a range of formats including face to face and online? Would you like to be part of a team making a major impact through innovation in ethics learning and teaching, research and consultancy?  


You will be drawing on high quality philosophical and inter-disciplinary research to design and develop high quality inter-disciplinary applied ethics teaching for students both at the University of Leeds and in the University of Leeds Joint School with Southwest Jiaotong University (SWJTU) in China. Liaising with academics across the University you will develop and deliver applied and inter-disciplinary ethics teaching across programmes of study in a range of disciplines (for example, engineering, business, dentistry). You will work with colleagues in IDEA to develop and deliver teaching materials for the Centre’s Masters programmes and for professional development activities in consultancy and training. 


The role involves the development and delivery of high quality teaching (online and campus based) both as part of the Centre’s own MA programmes (in Biomedical and Healthcare Ethics and in Applied and Professional Ethics), and in sessions and modules integrated within programmes of study in a range of disciplines across the University. You will have the ability to motivate, challenge and inspire students from a range of discipline, professional and cultural backgrounds. You will have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work with a wide range of people. 


You will also pursue a programme of philosophical research, both individual and, where appropriate collaborative, thereby enhancing the IDEA Centre’s international profile for research excellence in applied and inter-disciplinary ethics. In addition you will actively contribute to the impact of the CETL’s research through your part in our professional ethics consultancy.
