AOS: Open

AOC: Open

Associate Professor of Philosophy or Full Professor of Philosophy.  Position will begin July 1, 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

We seek a candidate with an ambitious research agenda yielding active and innovative scholarship, as well as a record of excellence in teaching. The department will seriously consider excellent candidates specializing in any area, but we particularly encourage applications from specialists in Ancient Philosophy (non-ethics areas only), and Philosophy of Mind/Philosophy of Psychology.

A goal of the search is to increase the diversity of the faculty in the Department, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups that are historically underrepresented in the disciplines noted above, such as women, black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian or Alaskan Native.

Minimum teaching load of four courses/year over three quarters, graduate and undergraduate levels; usual dissertation, committee, and advising responsibilities.

Referees may be asked to submit recommendations for the candidate at a later stage in the process. Please do not ask them to submit letters until requested to do so by the search committee. The committee may also request further information or publications from select candidates as the search proceeds.
