The Department of Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Chicago invites applications for a “Bridge to the Faculty” postdoctoral research associate position, to begin August 16, 2020. The position is open as to the area of philosophical research.

Purpose: Bridge to the Faculty is a new postdoctoral program designed to recruit scholars with the goal of transitioning them to faculty members after two years. Successful postdocs will have the opportunity to transition to faculty starting in the 2022-2023 academic year. This recruitment initiative aims to attract and retain promising scholars to UIC as well as help make our faculty more diverse and inclusive. Postdocs will participate in a mentoring experience, with the opportunity to meet other postdocs in the program and faculty through the Diverse Faculty Learning Community (Office of Diversity and the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs). 

The Bridge to the Faculty position is funded by the Chancellor’s Office, and administered through the Office of the Provost.

 

Eligibility: Doctoral candidates working in any area of philosophy.  PhD must be no earlier than August 15, 2016 and must be received by August 16, 2020. 

Context: Located in the heart of one of the most vibrant cities in the United States, UIC is a comprehensive urban public research (R1) university with a diverse student body and a strong tradition of support for difference and equality. Part of the University of Illinois land grant higher education system, UIC is among the nation’s top five most diverse campuses; it is designated as a Minority Serving Institution (MSI), an Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI), and a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). UIC’s undergraduate population is currently 26.4% Hispanic, 23.1% Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander, 7.9% Black, 35.8% White, 9.3% International, and 4.3% other/unknown. 53% of UIC’s students are low income, and 36% are Pell eligible. 

UIC’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Philosophy are committed to a diverse and inclusive faculty and student body.

Successful candidates must be committed to working with a diverse student body. Postdocs will teach one class each year (these may include both undergraduate and graduate students), and participate in program activities. The position is designed to encourage scholarly publications.
