Job description

The Philosophy Department at Binghamton University, State University of New York, is seeking applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Feminist Social and Political Philosophy. Eligible candidates may work primarily in the Anglo-American or Continental tradition, but it is desirable that the candidate be comfortable with both. Research and teaching strengths in related areas of social ontology, social epistemology, disability studies, gender and sexuality studies, and/or critical race theory are also desirable.

The successful candidate will be expected to play an active role in the department’s graduate program in Social, Political, Ethical, and Legal Philosophy (SPEL). SPEL is distinctive in supporting a diverse scholarly community engaged with value theory from multiple (including non-western) historical traditions as well as from a variety of contemporary approaches. Excellence in research and an appreciation of pluralism in philosophical inquiry are essential. The successful candidate will teach graduate seminars, supervise teaching assistants, serve on thesis and dissertation committees, direct graduate-level work, participate in department colloquia, and the like.

The teaching load for the position is 2/2. Part of this teaching will be in support of Binghamton University’s large Philosophy, Politics, and Law major. This will involve developing upper-level seminars and teaching lecture courses that are broadly in line with the candidate’s teaching interests and competence.  Candidates who have an interest in doing so may be affiliated with Binghamton University’s program in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and/or participate in the Kaschak Institute for Social Justice for Women and Girls.

The Philosophy Department is committed to equity and inclusion and is working to increase diversity amongst its faculty. Members of groups historically underrepresented in the field and those from non-traditional backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Additionally, evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion through research, teaching, and/or service will be valued. Binghamton University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.

Candidates should possess a Ph.D. in philosophy by August 15, 2023. To apply, please submit a letter of application, a detailed curriculum vitae that indicates three professional references, and a writing sample.  After an initial review of these application materials, selected candidates will be asked to submit additional materials such as a teaching dossier, and to have letters from their references submitted. Selected finalists will be invited for on-campus interviews in early 2023.

 Applications received by November 1, 2022, will receive full consideration.
