Job description

The Department of Philosophy seeks applications for a College Fellow in Philosophy. This appointment will be offered should funding become available (which will be settled by April 1). The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2020. The College Fellow will have teaching responsibilities, with 25 percent of the appointment reserved for the Fellow’s own research. Teaching duties will include three courses, and the Fellow may also advise and evaluate senior theses. The content, timing, and level of the courses the Fellow teaches will be determined in consultation between the Fellow and the Director of Undergraduate Studies. The department has particular needs in moral philosophy, political philosophy, and metaphysics. Candidates with competencies in any of these areas are encouraged to apply. The department is especially eager to expand its course offerings in non-traditional topics and issues in these broad areas.

The appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year, contingent on performance, position availability, curricular need, and divisional dean authorization.

Basic Qualifications: Doctorate or terminal degree in Philosophy or related discipline required by the expected start date and must have been received no earlier than 2016.

Additional Qualifications: Demonstrated strong commitment to teaching is desirable.
