Job description

The School of History, Philosophy, and Religion proposes to engage in a national search for a full-time (1.0 FTE), 9-month, fixed-term, Instructor to support the Philosophy Program. Reappointment is at the discretion of the Dean.

The successful candidate will teach multiple sections of PHL 443/543 “World Views and Environmental Values,” and teach other philosophy courses, including PHL 448 “Native American Philosophies.” Candidates would support our program and major by teaching both on-line and on-campus, and helping to develop other classes, as needed. We would expect the successful candidate to teach 11 courses per academic year.

“World Views and Environmental Values” is a “Baccalaureate Core” class, fulfilling the “Contemporary Global Issues” Synthesis requirement. This course engages many aspects of OSU’s Strategic Plan 4.0 (Transformation, Excellence and Impact). In confronting questions about how ecological sustainability and human flourishing can be successfully pursued, the class directly addresses the key areas of sustainable earth ecosystems and the intersection of environmental ethics with human health and well-being. The class’s international focus fits with OSU’s commitment to international collaboration, and to the university’s Diversity and Equity Initiative. We are proud in the Philosophy Program of our commitment to helping students become skilled critical thinkers, and “World Views and Environmental Values” is an especially valuable class for helping students learn to think and write clearly about complex issues.

90%: Teach 11 courses per academic year, both on campus and online

10%: Service to OSU, the College of Liberal Arts, and the School of History, Philosophy & Religion
