Job description

THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO LAW SCHOOL. The University of Chicago Law School seeks a Law and Philosophy Fellow, appointed with the rank of Lecturer, for the academic year 2020-21. This is a twelve-month appointment and is expected to begin July 1, 2020. A Ph.D. in philosophy by time of appointment is expected, though in unusual cases a Ph.D. in a related discipline, or a J.D. accompanied by strong training in philosophy, will be considered. Applications welcome from new or recent PhDs or tenure-stream faculty interested in spending a year at the Law School. The Fellow will co-teach the Law & Philosophy Workshop with Brian Leiter on the theme of “New Directions in Political Philosophy,” which will focus on political realism, the debate about ideal vs. non-ideal theory, and, more generally, reactions to the Rawlsian hegemony in Anglophone philosophical work of the past fifty years.   AOS:  Political philosophy, with knowledge of Workshop themes essential; AOC:  open.  Visiting speakers will be prominent scholars working on these issues.  The Workshop with visiting speakers will meet roughly 8-10 times over the course of the year, but there will be initial sessions devoted to discussing Rawls’s work with enrolled students and occasional preparatory sessions for students prior to some visiting speakers.  The Fellow will also be asked to supervise student papers, and to contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School, as well as pursue his or her research. Salary $60K + benefits + superb research environment.  To be considered a candidate for this position you must apply on-line through the University website at apply.interfolio.com/71893 by January 24, 2020. Resume, cover letter, writing sample, reference contact information and research statement should be submitted electronically on the web site at the time of application. Three confidential letters of recommendation should be mailed to Mr. Joe Pellettiere at The University of Chicago Law School, 1111 E. 60th St., Chicago, IL 60637 with a postmark not later than January 24, 2020.

We seek a diverse pool of applicants who wish to join an academic community that places the highest value on rigorous inquiry and encourages a diversity of perspectives, experiences, groups of individuals, and ideas to inform and stimulate intellectual challenge, engagement, and exchange.
