Vassar College Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Love and Human Agency

     Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, NY.  The Department of Philosophy at Vassar College invites applications for a one-year Post-Doctoral Fellowship, to begin in July, 2013. 

     Vassar College is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, and is strongly and actively committed to diversity within its community. Applications from members of historically underrepresented groups are especially encouraged. 

     AOS: Moral psychology, ethics, philosophy of mind, or philosophy of action. The successful candidate will participate in an interdisciplinary project on Love and Human Agency, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, and is expected: to carry out substantial research on our theme of understanding love, caring, and their roles in rationality, morality, and/or agency; to participate in an interdisciplinary summer retreat in July, 2013; to teach two courses (1/1); and to lead an interdisciplinary faculty reading group. (For details, see http://www.loveandhumanagency.org.)

     Salary: $56,250, plus research and travel support. Ph.D. after Jan. 1, 2008 or successful dissertation defense by July 1, 2013 required, and candidates cannot have served as a postdoc for more than four years elsewhere.  To apply, please visit http://employment.vassar.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=51392 to link to the posting for this position, and upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, writing sample, description of future research (including a brief description of how that research fits the themes of the project), evidence of teaching ability, and the names and email addresses of three references who will be solicited for emailed letters of recommendation.   We will review applications until the position is filled, but applications received by December 1st, 2012 will be guaranteed full consideration.
