The Department of Religion, Philosophy, and Classics at Wright State University is seeking to hire a Lecturer in Philosophy.

The initial teaching load will be 8 courses over 2 semesters (4-4), with a possible reduction to 7 courses in subsequent years. The faculty will be expected to teach 2-3 sections of “Ethics for Professional Responsibility” each semester, with the remainder of the load being in the faculty’s area(s) of competence. Departmental and University service also expected. Summer teaching for additional compensation may be available during compressed six-week summer sessions.
