Job description

THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO LAW SCHOOL. The University of Chicago Law School seeks a Law and Philosophy Fellow, appointed with the rank of Lecturer, for the academic year 2014-15. A Ph.D. in philosophy by time of appointment is expected, though in unusual cases a Ph.D. in a related discipline, or a J.D. accompanied by strong training in philosophy, will be considered. Applications welcome from new or recent PhDs or tenure-stream faculty interested in spending a year at the Law School. AOS: Any area of philosophy that intersects with issues of interest to legal scholars. AOC: Any area of philosophy (such as moral, political or legal philosophy) that will enable the Fellow to co-teach the Law and Philosophy Workshop with Brian Leiter on topics in political and legal philosophy (likely candidates are free speech and its critics, or issues in general jurisprudence).  The Workshop will meet about a dozen times over the course of the academic year to discuss work by invited speakers. The Fellow will also be expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School, as well as pursue his or her research. Salary $55K + benefits + superb research environment.
