University of Chicago

Assistant Professor, Tenure-Track

AOS: Open

AOC: Open

Assistant Professor of Philosophy, first or second term.  Position will begin July 1, 2019. All requirements for the doctoral degree in Philosophy or related field must be completed by the start of the appointment.

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.

Successful candidates will be appointed either as assistant professor, or as a provost postdoctoral fellow with an initial two-year faculty appointment at the rank of Instructor. This initial period is intended to serve in lieu of a postdoctoral appointment for the same period, during which Provost Fellows will teach one class per year. Instructors will ordinarily be promoted to Assistant Professor at the end of their initial term. Assistant Professors have a minimum teaching load of four courses/year over three quarters, graduate and undergraduate levels, and usual dissertation, committee, and advising responsibilities.

Required elements of the dossier are: cover letter, CV, dissertation abstract, research statement, writing sample, teaching statement, teaching evaluations, syllabi, and three letters of reference.  Optional elements are an additional writing sample and additional letters of reference.  All items EXCEPT letters of reference may only be submitted via the Academic Careers website (https:// academiccareers.uchicago.edu) for posting #03856.

Letters of reference must be submitted by your referees by one of the following methods:

(1) through the Academic Careers website (strongly preferred); (2) by email to: philosophy_searches@lists.uchicago.edu with the subject heading OPEN JUNIOR SEARCH; or (3) by mail to Open Junior Search Committee Chair, Department of Philosophy, 1115 E. 58th St., Chicago, IL 60637.

 No applications or dossier materials will be accepted after October 15, 2018.

Questions may be sent through the Academic Careers website or philosophy_searches@lists.uchicago.edu with the subject heading OPEN JUNIOR SEARCH. 

Position contingent upon budgetary approval.
