Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Bilkent University invites applications for one full-time junior position. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in philosophy at the time of appointment. All candidates should have an active research agenda. Women are encouraged to apply. Although the AOS/AOC is open, we especially welcome applications from scholars who work in one or more of the following areas: Ancient Philosophy, Feminist Philosophy, History and Philosophy of Science, and Social and Political Philosophy.

The Department’s philosophical orientation is analytical, broadly understood.

The Department currently has 13 full-time members, of which ten are international faculty. The Department offers B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in philosophy.

Its faculty members come from 40 different countries, and the language of instruction across the university is English. The university offers a generous benefits package including on-campus housing, health insurance, and subsidized private school for faculty members' dependents in the K-12 levels leading to an IB degree.
