Job description

The School of Philosophy, Linguistics and Science Studies at Tel-Aviv University is seeking applications for a tenure-track position in the Excellence Program in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) beginning October 2024.

We welcome applicants with demonstrable excellent research and teaching capabilities and experience in at least two of the PPE core disciplines. In particular, we are interested in applicants specializing in the philosophy of economics, philosophy of law, or philosophy of social science. While we are open to diverse methods and areas of interest, an advantage will be given to candidates who are proficient in empirical analysis as well as theoretical scholarship and to scholars who can engage in cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Applicants should be capable of teaching some classes of the PPE core. They should be open to collaboration with experts from other fields and areas of interest, and enthusiastic about research and teaching that defy strict disciplinary boundaries.

The successful candidates must hold a Ph.D. from the beginning of employment.

Salary and employment conditions will conform to Tel Aviv University regulations. The appointment procedure will be carried out according to the rules and regulations of Tel-Aviv University authorities and is subject to the approval of the University authorities. 

Candidates who proceed to the second stage of evaluation will be asked to have three reference letters sent directly from the senior scholars to the above address.

The Faculty of Humanities at Tel Aviv University is interested in increasing diversity, broadly defined, and in recruiting new faculty members representing a diverse multicultural society. The position is open to all candidates. The appointment will be based on the candidate’s qualifications and the needs of the Department of Philosophy. The Department, the School of Philosophy, Linguistics and Science, the Faculty of Humanities and Tel Aviv University are not obligated to appoint any of the candidates who apply for this position.
