Job description

The UNC Chapel Hill Department of Philosophy and the Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) Program are pleased to announce that we have secured funding to appoint one, and possibly two, non-tenure track Teaching Assistant Professors to begin July 1, 2024. Initial appointments will be for a term of 1 year with the possibility of renewal for two more years.

Area of study is in social and political philosophy, or another area directly connected to PPE. The successful candidate(s) will be expected to teach two undergraduate courses per semester and energetically participate in the PPE Program and its events. They will be joining an active, vigorous, and welcoming philosophical community. The Philosophy, Politics & Economics (PPE) Program is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary program at the University of North Carolina that focuses on the intersection of the three disciplines in its title, where concerns for efficiency and efficacy as well as commitments to rights, justice, and liberty, are applied to social and political institutions. The PPE Program houses the international Philosophy, Politics & Economics Society, provides a regular influx of faculty on multi-year non-tenure track positions (which the program then works to place), offers an undergraduate PPE Minor, and runs an active extra-curricular program.

The PPE Program is committed to integrating abstract work in philosophy, political science, and economics with an informed and practical understanding of social, economic, political, and moral problems. 

Minimum Education and Experience Requirements: 

PhD in Philosophy, Economics, Political Science, Public Policy, or closely related field

Preferred Education and Experience Requirements: 

PhD in social and political philosophy or another directly connected field to PPE
