We have a particular interest in candidates who can teach Philosophy of Science courses at the introductory and upper-division undergraduate levels). Teaching duties will be introductory and upper-level undergraduate courses. Job duties will also include service work and advising and mentoring of students.

Requirements include PhD in Philosophy at the time of appointment. The candidate also should be willing to support the mission of LUC and the goals of a Jesuit Catholic Education.

Applicants should submit to www.careers.luc.edu (1) a current Curriculum Vitae; (2) a statement on teaching experience; and (3) a statement addressing past or potential contributions to mentoring a diverse student body through research, teaching, and other channels and engaging a diverse community through scholarship and service.
