POSITION DESCRIPTION

The Department of Philosophy (https://philosophy.ucsc.edu) at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a Full Professor (with tenure) in Philosophy. The area of specialization is open. Candidates are expected to conduct research, teach, contribute significantly to graduate education and mentorship, provide service to the campus and their profession, and be able to work with students, faculty and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds. Candidates with interest or experience in public philosophy are particularly encouraged to apply. The ability to teach in the history of philosophy is a plus but not a requirement. For information on UC Santa Cruz’s Center for Public Philosophy, see https://publicphilosophy.ucsc.edu/.

In addition, the successful candidate will serve as the next chair of the department; therefore, candidates with a history of successful administrative and leadership positions are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants must be willing to serve as Department Chair for a period of at least 3 years.

UC Santa Cruz values diversity, equity, and inclusion and is committed to hiring faculty who will work to support these values. UC Santa Cruz is a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) with a high proportion of first-generation students. We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing historically oppressed groups in higher education (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background) and who can clearly articulate participation in equity and diversity advancement efforts with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, and service towards building an equitable and scholarly environment. Activities promoting equity and inclusion at UC Santa Cruz will be recognized as important university service during the faculty promotion process. More information can be found: https://apo.ucsc.edu/diversity.html

The chosen candidate will be expected to sign a statement representing that they are not the subject of any ongoing investigation or disciplinary proceeding at their current academic institution or place of employment, nor have they in the past ten years been formally disciplined at any academic institution/place of employment. In the event the candidate cannot make this representation, they will be expected to disclose in writing to the hiring Dean the circumstances surrounding any formal discipline that they have received, as well as any current or ongoing investigation or disciplinary process of which they are the subject. (Note that discipline includes a negotiated settlement agreement to resolve a matter related to substantiated misconduct.)
