Job description

Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy- The Lyon College Religion and Philosophy Program invites applications for a tenure-track appointment of Assistant Professor of Philosophy beginning fall of 2023. Applicants must have a familiarity with and strong commitment to the liberal arts as well as a record of scholarly activity that would continue at Lyon College and, preferably, involve undergraduates. Specialization is open, but preference will be given to candidates with interdisciplinary background and interests, who are capable of teaching philosophy courses addressing gender, race, class, sexual orientation, from the perspective of western and non-western philosophical traditions. As part of a small Religion and Philosophy program, the philosophy professor will be teaching introductory courses that meet core liberal arts requirements in religion and philosophy (such as World Philosophies and World Religions) as well as upper-level courses in philosophy for the Religion and Philosophy major. The teaching load is seven courses per academic year. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. and evidence of prior teaching experience. 

Lyon College is a private, selective liberal arts college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). It is located in Batesville, Arkansas, a safe and historic town of 11,000 that serves as commercial, medical, social, and governmental hub for an eight-county area and named by USAToday as the best city to live in in Arkansas. The College currently enrolls almost 500 undergraduate students from 29 states and 14 foreign countries. Entering freshmen have an average high school GPA of 3.7. Interested candidates should send a CV, statement of teaching philosophy, statement of research interests, copies of transcripts, and the names and contact information of at least three references to Human Resources, 2300 Highland Road, Batesville, AR 72501 or electronically. For full consideration, application materials must be received by November 29, 2022. To learn more about Lyon College go to www.lyon.edu.
