Position Description

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Washington invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Philosophy with AOS: History of Philosophy, and AOC: Ancient Greek Philosophy. This is a full-time, tenure eligible position with an anticipated start date of September 2022.  Tenure track faculty have an annual service period of nine months (Sept 16-June 15). All University of Washington faculty engage in research, teaching, and service.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop a robust research program that complements existing scholarship in the department; teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels; serve on dissertation committees and mentor graduate and undergraduate students; actively participate in service to the university, profession, and broader communities; and promote a diverse and inclusive community of faculty, staff, and students.

The UW Department of Philosophy is a vibrant community of philosophers committed to excellence in research and teaching. With an expansive vision and an outward focus, the department aspires to practice engaged philosophy, believing our discipline has vital contributions to offer all areas of inquiry. We aim to foster inclusive and interdisciplinary conversations in which philosophical tools and methods are brought to bear upon problems and topics of public interest. Individuals whose backgrounds and interests align with these commitments, including members of groups traditionally underrepresented in our field, are strongly encouraged to apply.

We invite you to learn more about the Department by visiting https://phil.washington.edu.


Applicants are required to have a Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in Philosophy, or a closely allied field, by the start of the appointment.  Applicants must provide evidence for excellence in research and teaching.

The successful candidate will conduct research focused on the history of philosophy and be prepared and qualified to teach ancient Greek philosophy at all undergraduate levels. The department is interested in research that is canon-expanding or will offer new perspectives on existing topics, including non-western traditions (such as African/Africana, African American, Buddhist, Chinese, Indian, Indigenous, Islamic and Arabic, Japanese, Latin American, and Tibetan philosophy), perspectives grounded in feminist philosophy or philosophy of race, and other projects contributing to a more inclusive history of philosophy.
