Job description

The Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley seeks applications for an Assistant Professor (tenure track) position, with an expected start date of July 1, 2023. Job responsibilities include teaching 4 courses/year at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and conducting thesis supervision.

This appointment in philosophy is made in the context of a new interdisciplinary initiative at the University of California, Berkeley whose goal is Understanding (Non)Citizenships. Although applicants to this position will be appointed in philosophy, we seek candidates whose research speaks to and advances the goals of the “Understanding (Non)Citizenship” initiative at the University of California, Berkeley, which aims to hire an interdisciplinary cluster of faculty on this topic over two years. The cluster tackles three overarching themes: issues of justice, fairness and equality as related to (non)citizenship; the determinants and content of (non)citizenship; and the consequences of (non)citizenship. The cluster considers citizenship broadly, as a legal, social and cultural status that combines civil, political and social rights with a sense of identity, encompassing those who lack formal citizenship but also those who experience “second-class” citizenship through differential rights and treatment. Fully understanding (non)citizenship requires an interdisciplinary approach: claims for citizenship and equality are invariably normative, while the consequences and drivers of (non)citizenship must be studied empirically to understand change and effects. For this reason, this innovative cluster of faculty hiring will bring together diverse units in the social sciences, humanities and professional schools across UC-Berkeley. Faculty hired through the Understanding (Non)Citizenship cluster will hold positions in Philosophy, Political Science, Public Policy, Sociology and Law. In 2022-23, the University seeks applicants for an Assistant Professor position in Philosophy and a tenured (Associate or Full Professor) position in Political Science.

Minimum Basic Qualifications: PhD (or equivalent international degree), or enrolled in PhD or equivalent international degree-granting program at the time of application.

Preferred Qualifications: PhD (or equivalent international degree) by the start date of the position.
