Job description

The PhilosophyDepartment at Oberlin College invites applications for a full-time non-continuing faculty position in the College of Arts and Sciences. Appointment to this position will be for a term of two semesters, beginning Fall 2024, and will carry the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor.

Founded in 1833, Oberlin is a private four-year, selective liberal arts college near Cleveland, Ohio and is also home to an outstanding Conservatory of Music. Together, the two divisions enroll approximately 2900 students. Oberlin College was the first college in the US to make interracial education and co-education central to its mission. The College continues to view a diverse, equitable and inclusive educational environment as essential to the excellence of its academic program. Among liberal arts colleges, Oberlin is a national leader in successfully placing graduates into PhD programs.

The Philosophy Department has a long history of producing some of the finest academic philosophers in the country. Graduates of our program enter some of the country’s best graduate schools, including Rutgers, Berkeley, MIT, Cornell, Stanford, Yale, the University of Pittsburgh, and the University of Michigan. We have also been holding the now-biennial Oberlin Colloquium in Philosophy since 1960. For more information about the department, see our departmental webpages.   Among the qualifications required for appointment is the Ph.D. degree (in hand or expected by August 2024). Candidates must demonstrate interest and potential excellence in undergraduate teaching. Successful teaching experience at the college level is desirable. Oberlin College is committed to student and faculty diversity, equity and inclusion. The incumbent will bring understanding of or experience working with underrepresented and diverse academic populations. Oberlin is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the excellence and diversity of the academic community through their research, teaching, and service. Oberlin recruits, employs, trains, compensates, and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran’s status, and/or other protected status as required by applicable law.   Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2024, and will continue until the position is filled. Completed applications received by the March 1 deadline will be guaranteed full consideration. Questions about the position can be addressed to: Todd Ganson, Chair of Philosophy, at [email protected].
