The University of Florida invites applications for a nine-month, non-tenure-accruing, time-limited appointment in Philosophy at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor, effective August 16, 2020.

The department invites applicants with specializations in early modern philosophy or political philosophy. The successful candidate will be expected to teach in both of those areas. The ability to teach feminist philosophy would also be an advantage.

The successful candidate will teach six courses in the academic year, three in each semester. Teaching in the Fall 2020 semester will include undergraduate classes in modern philosophy and political philosophy. Salary is competitive, commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package.

The Department is genuinely committed to creating an environment that affirms diversity across a variety of dimensions, including disability status, class, ethnicity/race, gender identity and expression. We particularly welcome applicants who can contribute to such an environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service. The university and the greater Gainesville community enjoy a diversity of cultural and social opportunities, including organizations that support the interests of people from varied backgrounds.
