The department already has strengths in political philosophy, ancient philosophy, 19th century German philosophy, and 20th century continental philosophy. The successful candidate will join Xavier faculty in the 500-year-old Jesuit Catholic tradition of academic excellence in the liberal arts serving a diverse population of students.

Research and service are expected and supported. For further information about PHIL 100 and PHIL 200, please visit our departmental website:  www.xavier.edu/philosophy-department.
