Job description

The Marlboro Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies at Emerson College welcomes applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Philosophy. The appointment begins August 24, 2023 with a mandatory 2-day orientation August 24 & 25, 2023.

The Marlboro Institute is a vibrant and engaged community that houses an Interdisciplinary Studies Major, the General Education Perspectives Curriculum, Liberal Arts Minors, the Honors Program, and the Emerson Prison Initiative.

We seek candidates who can develop innovative and wide-ranging undergraduate courses that contribute to the Ethics and Values Perspective and the Philosophy Minor. Opportunities to contribute to the Honors Seminar and related minors and perspectives will reflect the candidates’ areas of interest and curricular needs.

Building on the Institute’s mission to connect the liberal arts with specialized fields in the College’s schools of arts and communication, strong preference will be given to candidates who can demonstrate how their work intersects with art and literature, culture and media.

Emerson College believes the pathway to achieving inclusive excellence and fostering a campus climate where everyone can thrive is only possible in an authentically inclusive, diverse, equitable, accessible, sustainable and socially just environment. As a community of storytellers, we continually strive to cultivate a community that draws upon the widest possible pool of talent to unify excellence and diversity while fully embracing individuals from varied backgrounds, cultures, races, identities, life experiences, perspectives, beliefs, and values.

Emerson College enrolls over 5,800 graduate and undergraduate students from all 50 states and more than 70 countries. Its main campus is located in the dynamic, multicultural city of Boston. The college also has campuses in Los Angeles and the Netherlands. Emerson’s commitment to inclusive excellence is supported by a range of resources such as the Office of Internationalization & Equity, the Social Justice Center, and the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning.
