Assistant Professor Tenure Track Faculty in Philosophy

Position Description:

The Philosophy Department at Carnegie Mellon University seeks applications for a full-time, tenure-track, appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning Fall 2024. The department seeks candidates whose research interfaces significantly with that of CMU’s Institute for Complex Social Dynamics. While  Areas of Specialization/Areas of Competence are open, candidates who work in philosophy of science, decision and game theory, social epistemology, or social and political philosophy are especially encouraged to apply. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. 

The Department of Philosophy strongly supports interdisciplinary and collaborative research, and we encourage individuals from diverse intellectual and scientific backgrounds to apply. The successful candidate may have a PhD from any discipline, but must show significant engagement with philosophy. The standard teaching load is 3.5 courses per year over 2 semesters, both undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as other non-teaching responsibilities.

Carnegie Mellon is committed to increasing the diversity of its community on a range of intellectual and cultural dimensions. We welcome faculty applicants who will contribute to this diversity through their teaching and service. We seek to meet the needs of dual-career couples and we are a member of the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) that assists with dual-career searches. Carnegie Mellon University makes every effort to provide physical and programmatic access to individuals with disabilities. If you require an accommodation to participate in any part of the employment process, please contact Equal Opportunity Services by emailing [email protected] or calling 412-268-3930.
