We're looking for new Co-Directors!

Got an idea on how to do things better? Apply now! This is a great opportunity to help expand MAP on a national stage. MAP UK is nothing without its chapters, and you could be the one to support them through our programmes and reports. 

Like all MAP UK positions, this is a volunteer role usually undertaken by students in the UK who are interested in working together to make philosophy better. Previous co-directors have usually already had experience working with a MAP Chapter at their university, but this is not a requirement.

DEADLINE: Friday 24th April*

The role can involve the following:

  • Co-managing the UK chapter programme: promoting the establishment of new chapters; approving applications; providing support and advice to existing chapters

  • Co-managing the UK mentorship programme: promoting mentorship programme, applications from new mentors; and linking mentees with appropriate mentors

  • Co-managing online web-presence (website, social media) and external enquiries

  • Compiling information on chapter activities and advertising it where appropriate

  • Developing ongoing MAP UK projects

  • Co-editing the MAP UK Blog (

  • Developing any of your own project ideas for the UK region

  • Regularly liaising with fellow co-directors about all of the above

Please note that in order to be eligible to apply, you must be a student based in the UK.


But, we should note, it doesn’t matter how far along in your course you are. For example, one of the current co-directors joined last few months of her PhD, and she continues to work in the position as an early careers researcher.

We appreciate the labour that goes into these roles, and we’re grateful to all past, present and future co-directors for their efforts. We aim to do our best to minimise workloads by spreading out and sharing tasks so that no one person is overburdened.
