Philosophy - Assistant Professor (tenure track)

The Department of Economics, Philosophy, and Political Science, Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus, invites applications for a tenure-track position in Philosophy at the rank of Assistant Professor. The area of specialization is open, with expected teaching needs in some combination of Ethics, Political Philosophy, Philosophy of the Social Sciences and Analytic Philosophy. The successful candidates will have a PhD in Philosophy and will become a member of the Department of Department of Economics, Philosophy, and Political Science (https://epp.ok.ubc.ca). The appointment is expected to start on July 1, 2020, or soon thereafter.

The successful candidate will have a demonstrable commitment to teaching excellence and a competitive record of scholarly contributions in the candidate's field of research, as well as the ability to establish a strong externally-funded research program. The successful candidate will have an opportunity to contribute to further development of the curriculum, to the supervision of undergraduate and graduate students, and to other service obligations to the University and community.

The Department of Economics, Philosophy, and Political Science is housed in the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences. The Faculty is undergoing a transition that will result in the formation of an autonomous Faculty of Science and an autonomous Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in 2020. The new Faculties will contain both discipline-based and interdisciplinary programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  Our collegial learning environment focuses on effective teaching, critical and creative scholarship, and the integration of scholarship and teaching.  We are committed to an ethos of local involvement, global engagement, and intercultural awareness and we provide a positive, inclusive, and mutually supportive working and learning environment for all our students, faculty, and staff.  To learn about the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Science, go to: http://www.ubc.ca/okanagan/ikbarberschool/welcome.html.
