Job description

The James A. and Susan K. Keller Fellowship in Philosophy is a two-year teaching fellowship intended for recent philosophy Ph.D.s (degree earned in the past 3 years) and for candidates who are ABD (within one year of completing the Ph.D.). The fellowship allows early-career philosophers to gain valuable teaching experience at a selective liberal arts college. In turn, fellows enhance the Wofford curriculum and the Philosophy Department with fresh perspectives and unique expertise.  

A strategic goal of the college is to increase and support diversity throughout the college community, and the Keller Fellowship aims to contribute to this goal. The search committee strongly encourages applications from all underrepresented groups, including persons with varied backgrounds, perspectives, and experience.  

Fellows teach three courses per term (typically two preps): two introductory-level courses (capped at 20 or 24) and one upper-level seminar (capped at 15). Fellows have no committee duties. They are full-time employees of the college and receive salary and employment benefits. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. As Visiting Professors/Instructors within the Wofford Philosophy Department, fellows have use of an office and a personal computer provided by the college. In addition, fellows may apply for support for travel to an academic conference (up to $1200/year).  

The fellowship begins in Fall 2020 and runs continuously for four 13-week semesters (fall and spring) with a six- to seven-week break between the fall and spring semesters. Fellows have no obligations to the college or the department during the four-week January term or over the summer.  

AOS: Open. AOC: Preference for one or more of: Philosophy of Race, Philosophy of Gender, Philosophy of Law, Philosophy of Mind, Political Philosophy, and Post-Colonial Philosophy.
