Job description

The Department of Arts, Languages, & Philosophy at Missouri University of Science and Technology invites applications for a tenure-track position in philosophy at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin in August 2019. The successful candidate will teach undergraduate-level philosophy courses, contribute to strengthening our department's philosophy program, maintain an active research program, and fully engage in the life of our diverse, multidisciplinary department. The typical teaching load will be three three-credit courses per semester, some of which may be delivered online. Candidates should have an area of specialization in applied ethics: the department is open to approaches to these topics from diverse perspectives and traditions. Candidates should be competent to teach a variety of courses in this area, and the department has specific teaching needs in business ethics, engineering ethics, bioethics, social ethics, and environmental ethics. Candidates should be willing to engage actively with S&T’s new Center for Science, Technology, and Society.

Missouri S&T is one of the nation’s leading research universities with 98 degree programs in 39 disciplines.  Founded in 1870 as one of the first technological Institution west of the Mississippi.  Located about 100 miles west of St. Louis in the multicultural community of Rolla, Missouri S&T is an accessible, safe, and friendly campus surrounded by Ozarks scenery.  Missouri S&T offers degrees in engineering, the sciences, liberal arts, humanities and business, with master’s and PhD programs available in many of the science and engineering programs and master’s degrees in biological sciences, business administration and technical communication.  With nearly 9,000 students enrolled online and on campus, Missouri S&T is big enough to accommodate a diverse population, but small enough for individuals to stand out.  Missouri S&T seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples.
