Job description

LOYOLA MARYMOUNT UNIVERSITY, Los Angeles, California. Visiting Assistant Professor, 2020-21. 3 classes/semester (1 or 2 preps). AOS: Open. AOC: Open. Teaching responsibilities principally in core courses: Philosophical Inquiry (philosophical anthropology, metaphysics, and epistemology) and Ethics, with a primarily historical approach.

The Department of Philosophy at Loyola Marymount University invites applications for two one-year, Visiting Assistant Professor positions to begin August 15, 2020. These are full-time, nine-month, non-tenure-track positions. Ph.D. in Philosophy prior to appointment strongly preferred, advanced ABD considered. Applicants should have a demonstrated commitment to quality undergraduate liberal arts teaching. As a pluralistic department, we value and respect a range of philosophical approaches. Because philosophy is integral to a Catholic university and therefore central to LMU’s Jesuit and Marymount-inspired mission of the encouragement of learning, the education of the whole person, the service of faith and the promotion of justice, we seek professionally outstanding applicants who will contribute to the Catholic tradition of philosophical inquiry.

Loyola Marymount University, a Carnegie classified R2 institution in the mainstream of American Catholic higher education, seeks qualified applicants who value its mission and share its commitment to inclusive excellence, the education of the whole person, and the building of a just society. LMU is an equal opportunity employer. Women, persons of color, LGBTQ and gender-nonconforming individuals, people living with disabilities, and others with diverse life experiences and beliefs are encouraged to apply.
