Job description

he Princeton University Center for Human Values invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Moral Philosophy for a position starting in September 2024.  

The researcher's duties will include making progress on their own research projects, teaching the equivalent of one course each year, and actively participating in the intellectual community of the University Center for Human Values.  The teaching will likely involve running a senior thesis seminar rather than teaching a traditional course, subject to approval of Princeton's Dean of the Faculty.  The postdoc will be expected to participate in a year-long research seminar for visiting fellows and Center faculty, as well as a year-long seminar for the Center's cohort of Postdoctoral Associates.  (Each of these seminars meets roughly every other week.)  The postdoc will also be expected to regularly attend some of the talks, panels, and conferences sponsored by the Center.

The University Center for Human Values has a strong record of placing our Postdoctoral Researchers in excellent tenure-track academic jobs.  Some recent postdocs can be seen by clicking here.


Applications are welcome from candidates who have or expect to have a Ph.D. by the start date of their appointment, normally beginning September 1, 2024. Applicants should not have more than two years of postdoctoral experience by the date of appointment. Applicants should have a serious research specialization in Moral Philosophy.  We understand Moral Philosophy broadly to include specific ethical questions, moral theory, and meta-ethics, but not to include political philosophy.  
Applications will be evaluated on the basis of the applicant's previous accomplishments and the promise of the proposed research project in moral philosophy. 
Term of Appointment 

The term of the appointment is one year, normally beginning September 1, 2024, with the possibility of renewal for up to one additional year pending satisfactory performance. Appointment will be made to the rank of Postdoctoral Research Associate.  Princeton University offers competitive salary and employee benefits.
