Position Description
The Department of Philosophy at Dartmouth College invites applications for a two-year residential postdoctoral fellowship, beginning July 1, 2024. We seek qualified candidates specializing in Philosophy of Race, African-American Philosophy, or Africana Philosophy. We construe Philosophy of Race broadly to include relevant work in epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language, social and political philosophy, history of philosophy, and other subfields. In addition to conducting research, the fellow will teach two courses per year. Applicants will be evaluated based on their promise for excellence in research and teaching, and potential for contributing to Dartmouth’s philosophical and intellectual community. Dartmouth runs on a quarter system, and the fellow will be expected to be in residence during three 10-week terms per academic year. The department will provide research support and mentorship.

The Department of Philosophy and Dartmouth are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. Dartmouth recently launched a new initiative, Toward Equity, that embraces shared definitions of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as a foundation for our success in institutional transformation. The specific efforts of the Philosophy department are highlighted on our website. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds and with different identities and attributes. Applicants should provide a statement that addresses how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This statement will be evaluated as part of the selection process.

PhD in Philosophy or a closely related field, or ABD with degree expected by September 1, 2024.
