Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Denison University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position beginning in August 2022. The successful candidate will be an exemplary teacher, committed to active philosophical engagement with students, and a broadly trained philosopher with expertise in the philosophy of law. They will complement a small, but pluralistic department with a tradition of excellence both in undergraduate teaching in a liberal arts context and in active and rigorous scholarship. We are looking to diversify our faculty and curriculum without replicating current areas of departmental expertise. Candidates will teach a two-three course load across all levels of the curriculum and regularly at the introductory level. They will have opportunities to develop new courses in their areas of interest and collaborate with other departments and programs at Denison. Candidates are required to have by start date a Ph.D. in Philosophy. (ABD will be considered as Instructor until Ph.D. is attained). Evidence of excellent teaching at the undergraduate level is a necessary condition for appointment. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups in the profession are especially encouraged to apply.
