Job description

The Department of Philosophy in the College of Arts and Science, University of Saskatchewan, invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Social and Political Philosophy at the level of Assistant Professor, to begin July 1, 2020.

The successful candidate will be productively engaged in research in social and political philosophy.  The faculty member will have teaching responsibilities at the undergraduate and graduate level:  a regular departmental teaching load of 12 credit units (4 courses) over the Fall and Winter terms, plus 3 credit units (1 course) at the graduate level every second year.  The successful candidate will also contribute to the Philosophy Department’s MA program, and the Certificate in Ethics, Justice and Law.  In addition, the position includes participation in administrative work commensurate with the rank of Assistant Professor. 

The College of Arts & Science offers a dynamic combination of programs in the humanities and fine arts, the social sciences and the sciences. There are over 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students in the College and 312 faculty, including 7 Canada Research Chairs. The College emphasizes student and faculty research, interdisciplinary programs, community outreach and international opportunities.

The University of Saskatchewan’s main campus is situated on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. The University of Saskatchewan is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a city with a diverse and thriving economic base, a vibrant arts community and a full range of leisure opportunities. The University has a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and scholarly activities and offers a full range of undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs to a student population of over 25,000.

Qualifications: Suitable candidates will have a completed doctoral degree in Philosophy at the time of appointment, specializing in Social and Political Philosophy.  The areas of competence are open, but the Department has teaching needs in ethics, feminist philosophy, history of philosophy, and the philosophy of law.  The Department is particularly interested in candidates who can teach both social philosophy and political philosophy.

We are looking for a colleague who will pursue a vigorous program of research, and also contribute to the intellectual and cultural life of the Department.  We welcome linkages to current areas of research strength within the Department.  Candidates demonstrating a capacity for excellence in teaching will be preferred.  Evidence that the candidate could constructively participate in the Department’s community outreach activities will be considered an asset.
