Hood College seeks applicants for the Sophia M. Libman National Endowment for the Humanities Professor with a disciplinary focus in philosophy and an interdisciplinary focus in ethics. The Libman Professor will come to Hood for a visiting, three-year appointment, teaching a reduced course load (1/2 in the first year, 2/2 in the remaining years) and planning and managing the yearly NEH Center for the Humanities Colloquium, a series of public and educational events organized around a particular interdisciplinary theme each year. Preference will be given to candidates whose teaching and scholarly interests include more than one of the following: theoretical and applied ethics, social justice issues, social and political philosophy, philosophy and law, and philosophy of race and/or gender.
The Sophia M. Libman Professorship is an ideal position for a beginning scholar whose interdisciplinary interests include a strong commitment to the humanities and teaching. The Libman Professor’s rank and salary are equivalent to those of a beginning assistant professor. Employment begins in August 2020; the PhD must be completed by that time.
We seek candidates with interest and experience in developing new courses on contemporary philosophical topics and issues, as well as courses that connect philosophy to other academic disciplines. We will not be considering candidates whose primary focus is in metaphysics, epistemology, or logic. Additionally, since the department already has sufficient coverage in biomedical ethics, preference will be given to candidates who can teach in other applied ethical fields.
The Libman Professor will teach one or more introductory courses in philosophy, as well as philosophy and interdisciplinary courses in the candidate’s own specialties. The successful candidate may also have the opportunity to teach courses in Hood’s Honors Program as well as to contribute to Hood’s graduate program in the Humanities by teaching an occasional graduate course. However, the majority of courses taught will be offered at the undergraduate level.
