Job description

The University of Cincinnati (UC) seeks to fill a full-time staff position to serve as Executive Director of the Philosophy of Science Association (PSA) and Program Director for the UC Center for Public Engagement with Science. We invite applications from candidates with an interest in nonprofit leadership, budgets and fundraising, and philosophy of science. Experience in these areas is desired but not required, as is an advanced degree in philosophy or another discipline in the humanities or sciences. Minimum degree requirement is a Bachelor’s degree.

Approximately three-quarters of the job (or 0.75 FTE) is dedicated to serving as Executive Director (ED) of the PSA. The ED is the executive leader and public face of the PSA, responsible for overseeing the organization’s administration, programs, and strategic planning. The ED works closely with the President, Governing Board, and PSA committees to develop and implement initiatives that further the mission of the organization, such as public outreach, expanding and diversifying the membership, and fundraising. Key responsibilities include managing business office operations, including the website and member communications, facilitating board meetings, serving as the principal liaison with the editors and publisher of the journal Philosophy of Science, and above all ensuring the successful functioning of PSA biennial conferences.

The remaining one-quarter (or 0.25 FTE) is dedicated to serving as Program Director for the UC Center for Public Engagement with Science. This Center is an interdisciplinary initiative to expand and enrich the interface between science and the public to benefit all stakeholders. The Program Director will serve on the Center's leadership team, managing organizational matters, budget and fundraising, and performing other activities congruent with PSA ED responsibilities.

This is a continuing, twelve-month appointment with an annual salary of $60,000 and benefits. Start date is negotiable with the aim of October 19, 2020.

If you have any questions about the position, don’t hesitate to contact any member of the search committee: Angela Potochnik (Chair of search committee & Director of Center for Public Engagement with Science), Jessica Pfeifer (current PSA Executive Director), Alison Wylie (PSA President).
