Job description

Bard College is a world leader in bringing liberal arts education to students from diverse backgrounds, including students from underserved and oppressed groups. Located in the Hudson Valley two hours north of New York City, Bard has established a reputation for excellence in undergraduate teaching, outstanding programs in the arts, and innovative educational programs such as the Bard Prison Initiative and the Clemente Course in the Humanities. We invite applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in Philosophy, beginning in the fall of 2019.

 The area of specialization is open, but we are particularly interested in the areas of philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, non-western philosophy, and feminism. Our institutional goals and values lead us to seek candidates who are passionate teachers excited to share their love of philosophy with a diverse student body. Our program nurtures and encourages broad, pluralistic thinkers who value the history of philosophy, dialogue between philosophical traditions, and connections between philosophy and other disciplines. Successful candidates will also be innovative researchers who are responsive to major challenges facing the field of philosophy today and creative community members whose service to the college will help us to advance our civic mission. The academic life of the college focuses on undergraduate teaching in small, intensive seminars; creative general education programs that build communities of liberal learning among diverse student populations; innovative collaborations between faculty in teaching and research across disciplines; and close, extended mentoring relationships between faculty and students, culminating in Bard’s senior project, a year-long independent research project completed by all graduates. Candidates must hold a Ph.D or be within a year of its completion.
