Job description

The Philosophy Department at Bucknell University invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy to begin August 2022. The successful candidate will teach two sections of a topical introduction to philosophy course and an intermediate course each semester: Contemporary Ethical Theory (Fall ’22) and History of Modern (Spring ’23). The Department particularly welcomes applications from candidates whose research focuses on Modern Philosophy or those with experience teaching the History of Modern Philosophy, especially in ways that diversify the typical “canon.”

We seek a teacher-scholar with broad philosophical interests, an understanding of the task of teaching in an undergraduate liberal arts curriculum, and a commitment to diversity and inclusive pedagogy. Ph.D. or ABD status in Philosophy is required by the start of the appointment.

Candidates should submit (i) a letter of application, (ii) curriculum vitae, (iii) statement discussing their commitment to diversity and inclusive pedagogy, (iv) three letters of reference, and (v) evidence of ability to teach courses in the requested AOC (including sample syllabi for the relevant courses). All application materials, including letters of recommendation, must be submitted online at: www.bucknell.edu/jobs.

Review of applications will begin on February 28th, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. For more information, candidates may contact the chair of the search committee: Matthew Slater, Department of Philosophy, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, 17837; [email protected]
