The Department of Philosophy (PHIL) and the Women’s & Gender Studies Program (WGST) at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte invite applications for an Assistant Professor position beginning August 15, 2024. The area of specialization (AOS) is feminist philosophy and/or philosophy of gender or sexuality, with a preference for non-ideal approaches and for research that is significantly grounded in philosophical traditions historically underrepresented in the field (e.g., feminist, queer/trans, Africana, Latin American / Latinx, Asian, Indigenous, disability studies, etc., including innovative applied and interdisciplinary work).
The area of teaching competence (AOC) is open but the department has teaching needs in epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and/or the history of philosophy. Most of the successful candidate’s classes would be cross-listed between PHIL and WGST. Workload for pre-tenure and for research intensive faculty is two courses per semester, at all levels from large general education classes to graduate seminars.
Candidates must (1) have a Ph.D. in Philosophy or a related discipline at the time of appointment; (2) provide evidence of scholarly activity appropriate for a tenure-track position in a philosophy department; and (3) provide evidence of the ability to teach and mentor a diverse student population at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Finalists will be asked to discuss how their teaching practices engage students of different ages, races, ethnicities, backgrounds, identities, and abilities, helping to remove barriers in order to ensure the success of all students regardless of their entry pathway into the university.
As an affirmative action, equal opportunity and an ADVANCE Institution, UNC Charlotte is committed to achieving excellence through cultural diversity. The university actively encourages applications and/or nominations of women, persons of color, veterans, and persons with disabilities. The candidate chosen for this position will be required to provide an official transcript of their highest earned degree and submit to a criminal background check.
