Job description

The program in Philosophy, Politics, Economics, and Law (PPEL) at the University of Richmond invites applications for a one-year visiting lecturer in Philosophy, Politics, Economics, and Law, to begin August 2019. The successful candidate for this non-tenure track position will teach core PPEL courses that are required of all majors, such as: Theory and Public Policy; Law and Social Order; and Rational Choice and Political Theory. The teaching load is seven courses for the academic year. Completion of PhD (in Philosophy, Political Science, or Economics, or in an interdisciplinary field involving those subjects) is expected prior to appointment.

The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With nearly 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and 92% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “to live lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a global and pluralistic society.”

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information on the program in Philosophy, Politics, Economics, and Law, see https://ppel.richmond.edu/ .

Applicants should apply online at http://jobs.richmond.edu and submit the following materials: a brief cover letter; a statement of teaching interests, experience, and philosophy, as well as evidence of commitment to inclusive pedagogy; a current curriculum vitae; copies of graduate transcripts. Please provide the names and contact information for three references who will receive an email requesting them to submit their recommendation letters to the University's Human Resources department at URHR@richmond.edu. One of these references must be able to speak to the candidate’s record of or potential for excellence in teaching.
