Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Rice University seeks applicants in an open rank search in the areas of Epistemology, Ethics or Philosophy of Science. The appointment may be at the rank of assistant professor (on the tenure-track), associate professor (with tenure), or full professor. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Philosophy by July 1, 2024, and will be expected to teach and advise students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Rice University has a semester-based teaching schedule with a 2-2 teaching load. The University expects faculty members to maintain an active program of scholarly research and publication and to contribute service to the Department, University, and profession.

Review of applications will start November 15, 2023 and the position will close on December 31, 2023. Application materials must include a letter of application, CV, teaching statement, research statement, 3 letters of recommendation, diversity statement, and a writing sample of approximately twenty to thirty pages. Applications must be submitted online via Interfolio. Finalists will also be asked for teaching evaluations (if available).

Finalists for this position will demonstrate a high level of research engagement and productivity, but the department is especially interested in applicants who are interested in engaging with work in other disciplines. Members of groups traditionally underrepresented in academic philosophy are particularly encouraged to apply.
