Job description

The Wabash College Department of Philosophy invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor to begin July 1, 2022.  The initial appointment is for one-year with possibility of one-year renewal depending on the needs and circumstances of the college. We are looking for someone who can teach ethics and either ancient philosophy or philosophy of commerce, a course that focuses on primary texts and important concepts in political economy and its critiques. In addition, an ability to teach feminist philosophy or philosophy of race will be considered an asset. The teaching load of 3 /3 will consist of an ethics course each semester, with the opportunity to teach upper division courses. We provide mentoring in teaching and research for visiting faculty as well as support for conducting research. We are particularly interested in candidates who are committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching, have an appreciation for the broad intellectual community of an excellent liberal arts college, and have experience working with diverse undergraduate student populations.

Many students, staff, and faculty find the close-knit community of the residential college one of the most rewarding aspects of their time here.
