Job description

The Department of History, Philosophy, and Religion at Hastings College welcomes applications for a one-year Post-Doctoral Fellow in Philosophy. Funded by an NEH grant to promote Humanities Teaching and Learning Resources and Curriculum Development, the position entails teaching two courses per semester and contributing to the design of interdisciplinary minors (in Democracy and Citizenship and Medical Humanities) and a proposed B.Phil degree, working with other humanities faculty. 


The ideal candidate will hold a Ph.D. in Philosophy (or be ABD) and have demonstrated successful teaching experience and a commitment to undergraduate teaching in the humanities and in the liberal arts tradition. Specialization is open, with the demonstrated ability to teach introductory courses in Philosophy and Ethics, and the ability to contribute to curriculum design in Democracy and Citizenship and/or Medical Humanities and/or an undergraduate B.Phil degree. The position is ideal for soon-to-be or recently awarded Ph.Ds who wish to gain further experience in teaching and curriculum design at a small liberal arts college. 

Diversity Statement

Understanding that historical inequities have prevented all students from the rewards and opportunities in higher education, Hastings College is committed to wide-ranging diversity, equity, and inclusion in its campus community. It is expected that incoming faculty are ready to engage our diverse students from a perspective of mutual asset-based respect.

The College 

Founded in 1882, Hastings College is an independent, coeducational, historically Presbyterian but non-sectarian, national liberal arts college with an enrollment of about 950 students. The student/faculty ratio is 15/1. The median ACT composite of entering students is about 23.

The Department

The Department of History, Philosophy, and Religion offers majors in History and in Philosophy and Religion and provides many service courses for Hastings College’s general curriculum. 

Modified Block Schedule

In the 2019-2020 academic year, Hastings College implemented a new, modified block schedule. Intensive courses are offered in 2-week and 7-week blocks. This post-doctoral fellow will teach one course in each 7-week block (i.e., two courses per semester).
