Job description


Bentley University, Waltham, MA seeks an outstanding scholar whose research includes a demonstrable focus on the Philosophy of Race and/or Gender. We welcome scholars who combine this focus with interests in other core areas of philosophy, such as Ethics or Metaphysics and Epistemology. This is a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level. Start date: Fall 2022. Standard load for research-active tenure-track faculty is four undergraduate courses per year, together with expectations of scholarly productivity and departmental and university service. AOS: Open, with a demonstrable focus on issues of race and/or gender. AOC: Open. Bentley University is a leader in the fusion of business and arts & sciences education, information technology, and business ethics; the department welcomes candidates whose research and teaching builds on these strengths. While the department strives to offer a wide range of philosophy courses, most Bentley students major in a business discipline; the ideal candidate will thrive in this environment. 

As guided by our Academic Affairs Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Strategic Plan, Bentley University seeks to enhance our faculty capacity in the scholarship, pedagogy, and engagement related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. To achieve that, we are hiring a cohort of new faculty in multiple academic departments and disciplines with expertise in DEI. This position is intended to be part of our DEI faculty cohort, which will enrich our DEI expertise across Business and the Liberal Arts & Sciences.
