The Department of Philosophical Ethics and Political Philosophy is part of the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University. The faculty is a compact and ambitious organisation. It has eight departments, 160 staff, and over 1,000 students. Our educational programme includes high-quality courses in both in-depth disciplinary fields of study and interdisciplinary and interfaculty studies. The faculty has innovative education and research programmes with a strong focus on current social issues. The Department makes an essential contribution to the Faculty’s teaching and is also very active in service teaching at other faculties of Radboud University. Our research is conducted at the newly opened Radboud Center for Philosophy and Society (RCPS). The RCPS positions itself at the intersection of philosophy and society. It draws on multiple philosophical traditions within ethics and political philosophy, as well as other disciplines, to address societal challenges. Research lines include democracy and contestation, the ethics and politics of digitalisation, integrity and healthcare, critical philosophy of race, and environmental ethics.
The Department works very closely with iHub, Radboud University’s interdisciplinary hub for digitalisation and society. iHub brings together researchers from various disciplines, including philosophy, computer science, law, science and technology studies, history, anthropology, organisational studies and linguistics, who focus on the promotion of public values in digital society. iHub’s research areas include AI and inclusive societies, the ‘Googlisation of health’ and other sphere transgressions, privacy and human rights, online manipulation and the future of work. iHub also includes a lab for the development of value-driven prototypes.Our faculty is committed to equal opportunities for all. We stand for an inclusive community and believe that diversity contributes to the quality of teaching and research. We therefore particularly welcome employees from different backgrounds, whose perspectives and alternative ways of thinking may contribute to the diversity of our faculty.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
