The Philosophy Department at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia is excited to announce that it is hiring a full time faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.

AOS: History of Modern Philosophy (17th & 18th century) AOC: Open

The department is especially interested in those whose work in the history of modern philosophy relates to ethics and/or aesthetics as well as those who can teach courses for a wide audience (that is, interdisciplinary and general education courses for non-philosophy majors as well as for philosophy majors).

Responsibilities: For the first year, this person’s teaching load will be 2/2 and it could increase to 4 or 5 courses per year thereafter, depending on the needs of the Department. In general, this person will teach introductory and advanced undergraduate philosophy courses, graduate seminars, and general education courses designed for wider audiences.

Research Funding: New assistant professors at Universidad de los Andes are eligible for a start-up research fund for the first three years.

Requirements for the position: Ph.D. in Philosophy required (in hand before the conclusion of January 2022). Teaching experience in a wide variety of courses strongly preferred. 

Start date: January 2022.

Language of Instruction: The language of instruction is Spanish, and the successful candidate will be expected to teach in that language from the beginning.

Statement of Inclusion:  The Philosophy Department at Universidad de los Andes is deeply committed to creating a diverse and pluralistic department and we strongly encourage women and other members of under-represented groups who support and can contribute to that mission to apply.

How to Apply: The application must include: a letter of application, a current CV, a writing sample, two letters of recommendation, and two sample syllabi, one for an advanced seminar in philosophy and one for an introductory philosophy course designed for students in other fields. Please email all application materials to [email protected]. Letters of recommendation should be sent directly from your references to the same email address.  All materials should be received by September 30, 2021.
