Job description

LOYOLA MARYMOUNT UNIVERSITY, Los Angeles, California. Assistant or Associate Professor, tenure-track, beginning Fall 2020. 2/2, 2/3 courseload over two years. Undergraduate and M.A.-level teaching. AOS: Continental Philosophy. AOC: Existentialism and/or Phenomenology. The department already has strengths in contemporary French philosophy. Ph.D. prior to appointment strongly preferred. Salary competitive.

As a pluralistic department, we value and respect a range of philosophical approaches. Because philosophy is integral to a Catholic university and therefore central to LMU’s Jesuit and Marymount-inspired mission of the encouragement of learning, the education of the whole person, the service of faith and the promotion of justice, we seek professionally outstanding applicants who will contribute to the Catholic tradition of philosophical inquiry. The department is also particularly interested in candidates willing and able to teach courses crosslisted with one or more of LMU’s interdisciplinary programs. University service and engagement are expected of all faculty at LMU.

Loyola Marymount University, a Carnegie classified R2 institution in the mainstream of American Catholic higher education, seeks qualified applicants who value its mission and share its commitment to inclusive excellence, the education of the whole person, and the building of a just society. LMU is an equal opportunity employer. Women, persons of color, LGBTQ and gender-nonconforming individuals, people living with disabilities, and others with diverse life experiences and beliefs are encouraged to apply. (Visit www.lmu.edu for more information.)

Submit dossier through the LMU Human Resources online application portal (http://jobs.lmu.edu), including (1) a letter of application, which should address the candidate’s perspective on both philosophical pluralism and the Catholic intellectual tradition as they animate teaching, scholarship, and collegial life in a department, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) evidence of teaching effectiveness, and (4) a writing sample not to exceed 25 pages. Additionally, three confidential letters of recommendation should be sent to Dr. Brad Elliott Stone, Search Committee Chair, by email at LMUPhilosophy@lmu.edu. Complete applications must be received by November 1, 2019. Pre-arranged interviews by video call will be conducted no later than December 13, 2019.
