Job Opportunity: Teaching Fellow in Applied and Inter-Disciplinary Ethics
For this role we seek: 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.
The IDEA Centre is an internationally recognised Centre for inter-disciplinary applied and professional ethics, within the School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science. For this role we seek: 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; and someone who would like to be part of a team making a major impact both across the University and at the interface between higher education and the professional world.
You will design and develop high quality inter-disciplinary applied ethics teaching for students across the University of Leeds. 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, medicine, engineering, business, chemistry, dentistry, computer science and AI). You will also 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.
To explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact Dr Elizabeth Ellis, Acting Director, IDEA Centre.
The closing date for this opportunity is Sunday 6 November 2022.
