Performs teaching, research and guidance duties in area(s) of expertise. Shares responsibility for committee and department assignments including administrative, supervisory, and other functions.


The Graduate Center, CUNY is the focal point for advanced teaching and research at The City University of New York (CUNY), the nation's largest urban public university. With over 35 doctoral and master’s programs of the highest caliber, the Graduate Center fosters pioneering research and scholarship in the arts and sciences and prepares students for careers in universities and the private, nonprofit, and government sectors. The Graduate Center’s commitment to research and scholarship for the public good is exemplified by its more than 30 centers, institutes, and initiatives, including its Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC), a 200,000 square-foot facility in upper Manhattan, designed to promote collaboration among scientists in five areas of global research and innovation: nanoscience, photonics, structural biology, neuroscience, and environmental sciences.

The Graduate Center (GC) benefits from highly ambitious and diverse students and alumni—who in turn teach hundreds of thousands of undergraduates every year. Through its public programs, the Graduate Center enhances New York City’s intellectual and cultural life.

The M.A./Ph.D. Program in Philosophy seeks a Professor of Philosophy in the area of philosophy of science, where that is broadly construed to include any philosopher who engages seriously with the natural and social sciences.

We expect to appoint at the rank of Professor, although an appointment at the level of Associate Professor will be considered for an exceptional candidate. It may be possible to obtain the designation of Distinguished Professor for this position.

The position includes teaching, research, and advising responsibilities in the areas of expertise. The incumbent will be involved in various departmental activities including administrative and supervisory matters. The position will begin in fall 2019.

Duties include but are not limited to:

  • Teaching Philosophy courses in areas related to the sciences.

  • Mentoring doctoral students and serving on students’ dissertation committees.

  • Organizing and participate in GC events that bring together philosophers and scientists with a wider educated public.

  • Participating in the public-facing presentation of science and the philosophy of science at the GC.


Ph.D. degree in area(s) of experience or equivalent. Also required are the ability to teach successfully, demonstrated scholarship or achievement, and ability to cooperate with others for the good of the institution.

A preferred candidate should have:

  • Ph.D. in Philosophy.

  • Experience at mentoring students.

  • An active research agenda and a distinguished publication record.

  • Commitment to graduate teaching and a genuine interest in serving the GC community.
