WORCESTER STATE UNIVERSITY is a vibrant public university located in the residential west side of Worcester, Massachusetts, the second largest city in New England and home to 38,000 college students at more than a dozen colleges and universities. Situated on a compact 58-acre campus, the University offers 50 undergraduate and graduate academic programs to more than 6,400 students annually. The Princeton Review ranks us as one of the 75 "Best Value" public colleges in the country, as well as a "Best in the Northeast" college.


The Worcester State University Department of Philosophy invites applications for a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor to begin September 1, 2020.

The successful applicant will be well prepared to teach some combination of Introduction to Philosophy, Critical Thinking, and Ethics, and will demonstrate a critical and inclusive pedagogy for each course.

About teaching in the Philosophy Department at Worcester State University:

We are a small, pluralist, collegial department that strives to offer a wide range of philosophy courses to the entire university community. We share a commitment to realizing critical pedagogical practices in all of our courses. We strive to be generalists in teaching philosophy even as many of us conduct active research programs in specialized, often interdisciplinary, areas, and we support each other in these pursuits. The department plays a significant role in campus and community activism and in the creation and growth of interdisciplinary programming campus-wide: members regularly teach and take leadership roles in Ethnic Studies, Women's Studies, and Liberal Studies. 


Ph.D. in hand by August 31, 2020. The successful applicant will demonstrate strong teaching skills, an active research program, and the ability to engage with a diverse community of state university undergraduates. Four/four course load with the possibility of one online course per semester. 


Salary and rank commensurate with education and experience. 

Worcester State University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer which seeks to reflect the diversity of its community.
