Job description

The Comparative Liberal Studies (CLS) Program at Habib University invites applications for open rank faculty positions in Philosophy. Successful candidates will teach courses and help shape academic pathways at the undergraduate level. Depending on credentials and experience, candidates will be considered at the Lecturer, Assistant Professor or Associate Professor ranks as appropriate. For Lecturers the annual teaching load is 6 three- or four-credit courses and for Assistant and Associate Professors the annual teaching load is 5 three- or four-credit courses. While the program is flexible in terms of specific areas of specialization, we particularly seek candidates who have been trained in one or more of the following areas: History of Continental Philosophy, Comparative Philosophy, Philosophy of Marx, Postcolonial Philosophy and/or Global Philosophies. In addition to being a committed scholar-mentor in a student-centered undergraduate liberal arts institution, the successful candidate is expected to be an active participant in strengthening philosophy curricula and the Comparative Liberal Studies program. Faculty should also anticipate helping to support the Habib Liberal Core.

Located in the world’s third largest city - Pakistan’s highly affordable, bustling, diverse and dynamic artistic, commercial and intellectual capital of Karachi, Habib University opened its award-winning modern campus in fall 2014 as Pakistan’s first university of liberal arts and sciences devoted exclusively to undergraduate education. Classes are typically under 25 students - allowing close interaction between students and faculty. The University prides itself both on its needs-blind admissions policy – assuring access to all qualified students - and the quality and dedication of its increasingly diverse international faculty - over 93% of whom hold advanced degrees from leading global institutions. The University also enjoys close connections with several prominent institutions of higher education in the U.S., including the Claremont Colleges, Stanford, UC Berkeley, the University of Michigan and Texas A&M. An innovation in Pakistani higher education, Habib University is also among a handful of global institutions actively rethinking what defines the liberal arts and sciences in the 21st Century.
