2 Jobs: Research Professor at UJ, 1 x permanent and 1 x fixed term

The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Johannesburg has advertised two Research Professorships, one fixed term until 30 April 2019 and one permanent. These positions are open across the humanities disciplines. Primary responsibilities are the publication of excellent research and the supervision of postgraduate students and postdoctoral research fellows. They carry no formal undergraduate teaching responsibilities, although willingness to give occasional lectures on specialised topics is appreciated. The successful candidate is likely to be able to demonstrate a willingness to mentor and supervise as well as a willingness to engage across disciplines. The closing date is 25 October 2015 and details for both jobs are available at http://jobs.uj.ac.za/


Philosophy of Medicine under contract with OUP
