Job description

The Department of History, Anthropology, and Philosophy at Augusta University invites applications for a tenure-track, Assistant Professor of Philosophy. While the AOS is open, we are primarily interested in candidates working in fields that can extend biomedical concerns beyond the confines of the hospital, in order to address the wider dimensions of health care, such as those affecting persons who are marginalized or disenfranchised or otherwise underserved because of location, race, class, gender, religion, culture, and so on.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. and a strong commitment to research and teaching. Teaching responsibilities will include both undergraduate and graduate courses in Biomedical Ethics and introductory-level philosophy courses in the Core Curriculum. There will also be opportunities to develop upper-level courses for the Philosophy minor. Standard duties will include teaching three courses a semester, advising and mentoring students, maintaining a strong program of scholarship, and providing service to the Department, College, and University.

This position is vital to our growing Graduate Certificate in Bioethics (which draws students from many fields, including Nursing and Medicine); the BA in Health, Society, and Policy; and the Undergraduate Certificate in Health Humanities. The successful candidate will be encouraged to pursue opportunities with other units such as (but not limited to): the pastoral care team at Augusta University Hospital, the Institute for Public and Preventative Health, the Center for Bioethics and Health Policy, faculty members in the Medical and Nursing Colleges, residents, and medical and nursing graduate students.

In addition to offering an undergraduate BA in Anthropology and History, the Department houses concentrations in Public History and Secondary Education teaching, as well as minor in Philosophy and certificates in Museum Studies, Asian Studies, Health Humanities, and Bioethics. We are located on the beautiful and historic Summerville campus.

Responsibilities include teaching existing courses and crafting new courses in the field; holding office hours, providing timely grading and student feedback; adhering to all academic policies of the University; maintenance of a high-quality research program; and publication of peer-reviewed scholarship
