Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Philosophy and African American Studies

The Departments of Philosophy (http://philosophy.la.psu.edu) and African American Studies (http://afam.la.psu.edu) at the Pennsylvania State University invite applications for an open rank position (tenured or tenure-track). AOS: Critical Philosophy of Race and/or Africana Philosophy. AOC: Open. Preference will be given to candidates whose work will augment the Philosophy Department's longstanding strength in continental philosophy and its specialties in critical philosophy of race and feminist philosophy, all of which are approached through attention to the history of philosophy. The successful candidate will join an African American Studies department that is interdisciplinary and diasporic in orientation with strengths in 20th and 21st century history, Africana religions, racial formation and cultural theory.

The successful candidate would help contribute to the thriving intellectual communities in Philosophy and African American Studies, including our dual-title PhD program in Philosophy and African American and Diaspora Studies. The expectation is that the tenure line (majority of the appointment) would be in Philosophy with a partial appointment in African American Studies. The percentage of the appointment in African American Studies may be negotiated. Teaching load: 2 courses per semester.

Applications must be submitted electronically at http://apptrkr.com/1252359. All applications should include a cv (including names of at least three referees), letter of application, and statement of current research. Applications at the rank of assistant professor must also include a writing sample, teaching portfolio (sample syllabi and student evaluations), and at least three letters of recommendation. Confidential letters of recommendation should be sent directly to Fergie Macedo at fum77@psu.edu. Review of applications will begin on August 15, 2018, but the position will remain open until filled. The start date for the position is August 2019. Candidates must hold a PhD by the date of appointment. Inquiries may be directed to Professor Kathryn Sophia Belle, chair of the search committee, at kathrynbelle@psu.edu.

We encourage applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds. Employment will require successful completion of background check(s) in accordance with University policies.
