Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Temple University invites applications for a one-year Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship to support the development of early career scholars from diverse backgrounds with particular attention to historically underrepresented groups on the professorial faculties of colleges and universities in the United States.  This year we seek application from scholars who show promise in the area of Philosophy of Race.  The position will complement and extend department strengths in Social and Political Philosophy and Feminist Philosophy, as well as strengths in other Departments in the College of Liberal Arts. The successful applicant will contribute intellectually to the Department and College with collaborative or individual research projects, and teach one course (in either the Fall or the Spring Semester) in their areas of interest.

The Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship is a just-created, competitive program whose goal is to increase the diversity of the community of scholars devoted to academic research at Temple University.

The Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship is non-renewable.  The award includes a salary of $50,000, full Temple University employee benefits, a research/travel fund of $3,000, and a one-time $2,000 moving allowance.  The postdoctoral fellow will teach one course during the year of appointment and will meet regularly with other postdocs and faculty in the department and college through participation in seminars, colloquia, teaching circles, etc.  The appointment will be effective August 1st, 2018
