The Philosophy Department at Reed College invites applications for a one-year position as Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Humanities beginning August 7, 2020. In addition to teaching one course in philosophy each semester, the appointee will teach one year-long section in Reed’s writing-intensive Humanities course (reed.edu/humanities/hum110/).  Teaching duties may include advising year-long senior theses. We expect the Ph.D. to be in hand, or very near completion, by the start of the appointment.  Reed College is a small, distinguished undergraduate institution committed to excellence in teaching and scholarship with a strong liberal arts curriculum. 

Applications should include

  • a CV

  • three letters of recommendation

  • a cover letter addressing how your teaching, scholarship, mentorship, and/or community service might support the commitment to diversity and inclusion articulated in the College’s diversity statement (http://www.reed.edu/diversity/).  Reed believes that cultural and intellectual pluralism are essential to the excellence of our academic program. An Equal Opportunity Employer, Reed encourages applications from underrepresented groups.

If available, applicants are encouraged to include evidence of excellence in teaching or potential for such excellence, such as a statement of teaching philosophy, student evaluations, and/or syllabi. Please submit application materials through Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/74062.
