Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Skidmore College invites applications for a two-year Visiting Assistant Professor (for sabbatical replacement), beginning in Fall 2019. AOS: Open; AOC: Asian Philosophy. Our department has strengths in Ancient Philosophy, Early Modern Philosophy, Late Modern European and American Philosophy, and Aesthetics, and so preference will be given to candidates who have teaching abilities in other areas. The teaching expectation will be 18 credit hours per year, divided among five courses (a 3-2 load). Ph.D. in philosophy is expected at time of appointment, although ABDs will be considered provided they anticipate completing the Ph.D. before Fall 2019.

Candidates should submit all materials online by February 18, 2019, including a cover letter, a current CV, graduate transcripts, evidence of effective teaching, a sample syllabus for a course in Asian philosophy (any topic or level), a writing sample, and three letters of reference.

We encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups as well as individuals who have experience working with diverse student populations and who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching, scholarship, and service.

The Department of Philosophy at Skidmore emphasizes the history of philosophy, innovative scholarship, and the lively teaching of primary texts. Also highly valued are a commitment to the goals of liberal arts education and an enthusiasm for interdisciplinary approaches to teaching and research. For more information about the department, please visit our website at: http://www.skidmore.edu/philosophy.

Skidmore’s faculty are devoted to the instruction and mentoring of approximately 2,500 undergraduate students, with 22% students of color and 11% international students.
