The UCLA Department of Philosophy is offering a one year (with the possibility of a one-year renewal) post-doctoral research fellowship to a recent Ph.D. in philosophy whose primary area of research lies in logic, language, or mind.

The fellow is required to teach two quarter-length courses in the first year and one quarter-length course in the second year of the fellowship; the fellow will also be asked to attend talks and conferences, and to participate actively in the philosophy department community.

The fellowship offers a competitive salary, small research stipend, and full benefits with a start date in the summer of 2020.
Typical candidates will have a doctorate in philosophy, and it must be granted prior to official start date. (e.g., if starting August 1, Ph.D. must be completed no later than July 31). Proof of degree completion is required prior to start of appointment.
One or two postdoctoral fellowships will be available depending on funding.
Please submit the following: 1) a writing sample in the candidate’s field of specialization; 2) a statement of research interests; 3) a statement describing their experience and approach to fostering diversity in the classroom and the profession; 4) CV; 5) three or more confidential letters of reference; 6) evidence of teaching effectiveness.
