Distinguished Visiting Professorial Fellowship

Distinguished Visiting Professorial Fellowship in International Ethics

The International Ethics Research Group (IERG), situated in the School of Humanities & Social Sciences (HASS) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Canberra, Australia, has recently created a Distinguished Visiting Professorial Fellowship. 

Expressions of Interest are sought from world-leading local and international Scholars who have made outstanding and internationally-recognised contributions in the broad area of International Ethics, for the distinguished position of Visiting Professorial Fellow in International Ethics. 

This extraordinary opportunity will provide a platform for developing strong collaborative research relationships and provide the Distinguished Fellow with the opportunity to be a part of the School’s vibrant inter-disciplinary research community. 

International Ethics is an increasingly prominent academic field of research that brings together scholars in the fields of International Relations, Political Theory and Moral Philosophy to address ethical questions in international politics. It is field in which UNSW Canberra has unique strength. Our proximity to the military and government, as well as our outstanding research record and our Canberra-wide research network (including ANU and UC) means that UNSW Canberra is unrivalled in Australia as a place to pursue research in this field.

The Opportunity

The Distinguished Visiting Fellow will be appointed for a negotiated period of up to three months during term time (March-November).  The host for the duration of the appointment will be the International Ethics Research Group (IERG), located within the School (HASS).

The Fellowship involves being a valued member of the School whilst;

-          engaging with research students,

-          engaging with members of IERG and the School,

-          participating in regular IERG activities,

-          delivering one or more public lectures.

We understand that this opportunity may not match with your busy schedule, and as such welcome expressions for future years (up to three years into the future).
