In 2004-2006 she was granted a Postdoctoral Fellowship in order to work on Simone de Beauvoir’s ethics, and she was also the Director of Research at the Ethics Programme. From 2006-2010 Pettersen was Associate Professor, and from 2011-2019 a full Professor of Philosophy at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas (UiO). From 2019 Pettersen is a professor at Center for Gender Research (UiO), and currently also Head of Studies.
