The Department of Philosophy at Stanford University seeks applicants for an appointment in “core” areas, including Language, Mind, Metaphysics, and Epistemology (we draw your attention also to parallel searches in Ethics and in Logic). This is an entry-level, tenure-line search; the position will be at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in a related field by the time of employment and will be expected to teach and advise students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and to lead a robust research program. The term of appointment is expected to begin on September 1, 2024.

All candidates should apply through Stanford Faculty Positions and submit through that system evidence of your abilities and accomplishments, including:

  • a cover letter; 
  • a curriculum vitae (including a publication list); 
  • a teaching statement of no more than one single-spaced page; 
  • a research statement of no more than three single-spaced pages; 
  • one or two scholarly publications and/or well-developed papers.

Also, please arrange for 3-5 letters of reference to be submitted through the online system.

The Philosophy Department, School of Humanities and Sciences and Stanford University value faculty who will help foster an inclusive academic environment for colleagues, students, and staff with a wide range of backgrounds, identities, and outlooks. Candidates may choose to include as part of their research and teaching statements a brief discussion about how their work and experience will further these ideals. Additional information about Stanford's IDEAL initiative may be found here: https://ideal.stanford.edu/about-ideal/diversity-statement.

The salary range for this position is $105,000 – $116,041, for academic year 2024–25.
