Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Skidmore College invites applications for a two-year Visiting Assistant Professor beginning in Fall 2019. The department has needs in both ethics and feminist philosophy—candidates should have AOS in either ethics or feminist philosophy (or both) with an AOC in the other. The teaching expectation will be 18 credit hours per year, divided among five courses (a 3-2 load). Ph.D. in philosophy is desired, although strong ABD applicants will be considered.

Candidates should submit all materials online, including a cover letter, a current CV, graduate transcripts, evidence of effective teaching, a sample syllabus for a course in ethics and a course in feminist philosophy, a writing sample, and three letters of reference. Review of applications will begin May 27, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.

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 active engagement with philosophical texts, with the histories and traditions of human thought, and with current issues of deep significance. The department welcomes a variety of philosophical traditions and approaches. For more information about the department, please visit our website at: http://www.skidmore.edu/philosophy.
