Job description

I am pleased to share with you the 2021 call for applications for the University of Missouri’s Preparing Future Faculty – Faculty Diversity (PFFFD) Postdoctoral Program. The PFFFD program is designed to develop scholars for tenure-track faculty positions. Applicants should demonstrate how they can contribute to faculty diversity, such as through membership in a group that is historically underrepresented or through other experience. Postdoctoral positions are typically for two years and provide research, teaching, and professional development opportunities. 

The Philosophy Department invites applicants with an area of specialization in either ethics or epistemology.

General questions about the PFFFD program can be directed to Dr. Behm-Morawitz, Associate Dean of the Graduate School (postdoc@Missouri.edu). If you have any questions about applying to our research area, specifically, I am happy to answer your questions.
