Job description

The Department of Philosophy invites applications for a Visiting Professorship in Russell and the History of Analytic Philosophy for 2021-2022. McMaster University houses the Bertrand Russell Research Centre and the Russell Archives, and is a central hub for research on Russell's philosophy. This Visiting Professorship is primarily intended for scholars whose research would benefit from access to the Archives for an extended period. Applications will be considered from established scholars as well as those at an earlier stage in their career who have a strong research project that would benefit from access to the Archives.  

The Visiting Professorship is tenable for either one or two semesters. The Visiting Professor’s duties include presenting at least one paper in the Philosophy Department's Speakers Series and teaching one fourth-year undergraduate course (open to graduate students) or a graduate course, preferably on the history of analytic philosophy (although a different topic may be agreed upon with the Chair of the Department of Philosophy). The stipend for teaching the course is up to $17,983.00, depending on rank, in accordance with the standard schedule for overload teaching.  Review of applications will commence on April 26, 2021.
