Additional summer teaching opportunities possible. We are interested in candidates in social and political philosophy in the Anglo-American tradition, with a preference for people with interests in applied philosophy and recent public controversies.

If renewed, the course load would be 2-2, consisting of two upper level and two lower-level courses.  Funding for travel to professional conferences is available on a case by case basis. The successful candidate would be joining a vital philosophical community in Chicago involving several nearby universities. Candidates must have completed all the requirements for the Ph.
