In the near future, the process of digitisation will change our society even more radically, and will assume an even greater significance. There is a steady increase in the influence of algorithms on governmental and professional decisions. Transport, communication, privacy, health, safety and warfare have already undergone a thorough transformation. The ethical standards surrounding all these issues are under pressure, and must in some cases be invented anew. As a member of the Practical Philosophy chair, you, our new Assistant Professor of Applied Ethics, will be involved in education and research, as well as in administrative duties at the levels of the faculty and the chair. You will teach ethics at all levels of the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes at our own and at other faculties, and also supervise students doing internships or Master’s theses.

In addition to teaching, you will be involved in educational development at both faculty and programme levels. Moreover, you will be actively involved in research at the Center for Contemporary European Philosophy (CCEP), in particular into ethical issues surrounding the above-mentioned issues, and contribute to the acquisition of externally financed research projects.

- you demonstrably have a thorough knowledge of the historical and contemporary discussions in philosophical ethics;

- you are preferably in possession of the University Teaching Qualification (BKO) or are willing to obtain such a qualification within two years;

- you either already have an excellent knowledge of Dutch, or else you are capable of achieving C2 level within two years;
- your verbal and written English skills are either at the C2 level, or else you are capable of achieving that level within two years.


the salary is dependent on your level of previous education and the amount of work experience and will lie somewhere between €3,475 and €5,405 based on a 38-hour working week (salary scale 11 or 12)
- duration of contract: 1 year, with the possibility of extension
- depending on your CV, we will offer you a tenure track with the possibility of extension after 2 or 4 years
