Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, invites applications for a limited-term appointment:

AOS: Logic; this position would involve teaching introductory symbolic logic, introductory philosophy, and a prepared online course in critical thinking.

Together, initial appointments and subsequent reappointments may not exceed 36 months or a span of three consecutive years. They are normally at the rank of Lecturer or Assistant Professor, beginning August 1, 2019 and ending May 31, 2020. Successful candidates will normally be expected to teach three courses per semester.

All inquiries should be directed in the first instance to the Assistant to the Chair in the Department of Philosophy, at philosophy.chairassistant@concordia.ca. Review of applications will begin as they are received and will continue until the required position has been filled. All applications should be received by the department no later than April 22, 2019.
