We seek an assistant (tenure-track) or early associate (tenured) professor specializing in virtue theory, broadly conceived. Area of competence is open.

The successful candidate will be a central member of a vibrant intellectual community that prizes the ability to converse across philosophical traditions and sub-disciplines and values interdisciplinary engagement. We are especially interested in applications from qualified candidates who are committed to practicing philosophy in an inclusive and cooperative mode, while achieving rigor and excellence in their research and teaching.
