Job description

Assistant Teaching Professor of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy & Religion within the College of Arts and Letters at The University of Tampa invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure-track position as Assistant Teaching Professor of Philosophy beginning in August 2023. This position is eligible for promotion.

The University of Tampa is a medium-sized, comprehensive, residentially-based private institution of more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The University is ideally situated on a beautiful 110-acre campus next to the Hillsborough River, adjacent to Tampa's dynamic central business district, which is a growing, vibrant, diverse metropolitan area. UT reflects this vibrancy; with 24 consecutive years of enrollment growth UT boasts 260 student organizations, a multicultural student body from 50 states and more than 100 countries, and "Top Tier" ranking in U.S. News & World Report.

The teaching load is 4 courses (16 credit hours) per semester at the introductory undergraduate level. The area of specialization (AOS) is ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS AND/OR ENVIRONMENTAL PHILOSOPHY. The area of concentration (AOC) is OPEN.

The successful candidate must be able to teach an intro-level undergraduate Environmental Ethics course, a variety of additional intro-level philosophy courses, and a general-education philosophy/humanities course with the theme “Making Sense of the Local and the Global” that is part of a scaffolded, general-education curriculum co-managed by an interdisciplinary committee of colleagues outside of the department. A demonstrated ability to do interdisciplinary work that engages with environmental science and/or public policy issues related to sustainability and the environment would be very welcome, as would an ability to teach in some of the following specific areas: philosophy of science, philosophy of mind/cognitive science, metaphysics, business ethics, introductory logic, critical thinking, ancient Greek philosophy, modern philosophy (i.e., metaphysics and epistemology from Descartes through Kant). Other responsibilities include maintaining currency in the fields of scholarship related to teaching duties, supporting students, assisting with ongoing outcomes assessment procedures, and doing additional professional service in support of the department, college, and university. Ph.D. in Philosophy must be in hand no later than August 15, 2023. Teaching experience is required.

We are looking for a colleague who is committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching, who is skilled at teaching general-education courses in ways that excite students while introducing them to meaningful philosophical inquiry, and who is able to attract a diverse group of students to become philosophy majors.

To be assured of full consideration, submit all materials by November 1, 2022, but please note that applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.

Please be prepared to attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and research sample.
