Job description

Position No. 6273. The Department of Philosophy at Southern Methodist University invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor appointment beginning Fall/August 2024. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Philosophy or a related discipline at the time of the appointment. AOS and AOC open, but with a preference for ethics (including applied ethics), social and political philosophy, philosophy of race, and related subfields (broadly construed). The position is part of a cluster hire in urban research, which aims to address some of the challenges and opportunities of cities in the 21st Century. The department has a particular need for philosophy courses covering topics like the following: immigration, poverty and economic justice, race and racism, racial justice, environmental justice, public health, housing equity, policing, technology and surveillance, community engagement, or culture and aesthetics of the city.

The successful candidate must show potential to publish at a high level as well as promise in teaching at the undergraduate level. The teaching load is 2-2. Salary, benefits and research support will be competitive.

The Department of Philosophy is committed to increasing the diversity of the department and the campus community and strongly encourages applications from members of groups that continue to be underrepresented in academia and the field of Philosophy. SMU is academically secular and welcomes faculty and students from all backgrounds. SMU is committed to protecting tenure and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus. As a private institution, SMU is exempt from recent state laws weakening public academic institutions. More information about the philosophy department can be found at: http://www.smu.edu/dedman/academics/departments/philosophy. All inquiries about the position can be directed to Assoc. Prof. Philippe Chuard, [email protected].

Applications should be submitted through interfolio: http://apply.interfolio.com/128556 and should include a research statement, documentation of teaching interests and experience, curriculum vitae, writing sample, and at least three letters of reference. Review of applications will begin November 1 2023, but the committee will continue to accept applications until the position is filled. Hiring is contingent upon the satisfactory completion of a background check.  

SMU will not discriminate in any program or activity on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity and expression. The Executive Director for Access and Equity/Title IX Coordinator is designated to handle inquiries regarding nondiscrimination policies and may be reached at the Perkins Administration Building, Room 204, 6425 Boaz Lane, Dallas, TX 75205, 214-768-3601, [email protected].

As one of eight tenure-line positions associated with Southern Methodist University’s faculty cluster in urban research, this position offers opportunities for rich interdisciplinary connections among new and existing SMU faculty. The cluster fosters research on cities and urbanization from local and global perspectives. SMU’s location in Dallas, the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country, is an ideal setting for studying the opportunities and inequities that individuals, groups, and communities confront as they navigate and shape urban life.
