The Faculty of Philosophy intends to appoint a Departmental Lecturer in Logic and the Philosophy of Mathematics to cover the teaching and other duties of a permanent postholder during a period of externally-funded research leave. The post is fixed-term for 21 months, beginning 1 January 2020. The post will be associated with Wadham College.

The successful candidate should normally have received the degree of PhD or DPhil by 1 January 2020, or at least have submitted a completed doctoral dissertation for examination by that date, but candidates who do not meet this requirement may be considered, if they have attained a comparable level through their publications.
