Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Lawrence University invites applications for the Postdoctoral Fellow of Philosophy and Uihlein Fellow of Ethics to begin in September 2019. The successful candidate must be able to teach courses in ethics (broadly construed) that will complement existing department strengths and contribute to interdisciplinary programs on campus.  In particular, the candidate must be able to contribute to Lawrence’s interdisciplinary program in Biomedical Ethics by teaching Introduction to Biomedical Ethics and Advanced Biomedical Ethics.  The candidate will also be expected to contribute to Lawrence’s Freshman Studies Program. The initial appointment is for two years with a reduced teaching load. Instead of the usual six courses per year on a 10-week term system (2 courses each term), the fellow will teach three courses in the first year and four in the second (at least one course per term) to provide time to pursue research and develop excellence in undergraduate teaching.

We encourage applications from individuals who will help us create a more inclusive Lawrence by: (1) further diversifying the faculty; and/or (2) demonstrating experience with successful diversity-related initiatives, creative activity or research; and (3) showing interest in developing inclusive pedagogy to address the needs of a diverse student body. See http://www.lawrence.edu/admissions/about for more information about Lawrence and its surrounding community, including the New North Regional Guide which lists resources that promote diversity in the community.

Applicants must complete all requirements for the Ph.D. prior to September 1, 2019 and no earlier than September 1, 2014. Please include a letter of application, CV, sample of writing, evidence of excellence in teaching, a statement on your experience related to addressing issues of diversity and inclusion in an academic setting and ways that you could contribute to these efforts at Lawrence, and letters of recommendation. Materials must be submitted by May 10th.
