Job description

The Department is currently composed of five full-time philosophers who are dedicated to both teaching and scholarship. As a point of pride, we work to support junior faculty as they acclimate to their new surroundings. There are numerous opportunities for faculty to bring guest speakers to campus, and there are regular opportunities for research support (internal grants, etc.). We draw some of the best students at TCU to our majors and minor and those students have gone on to exceptional careers and programs of graduate study.

Candidates should demonstrate (1) promise of significant publication in AOS; (2) commitment to undergraduate teaching and recruitment of majors and minors, especially from underserved, underrepresented, or marginalized students; and (3) possess a Ph.D. by time of appointment.

Women and those from under-represented groups and traditions are strongly encouraged to apply. All application materials must be uploaded no later than December 1, 2022. Departmental representatives will conduct virtual interviews for the first round of the selection process. Finalists will be invited to campus for an in-person visit.

Apply for this job through jobs.tcu.edu and upload your complete electronic dossier, including a short letter of application, CV, short writing sample, evidence of teaching excellence, syllabi of pertinent courses taught, and a brief statement on diversity, equity, and inclusion as they pertain to your teaching, research, and/or academic career goals. Three letters of reference will be requested at a later time in the process from the three references you provide in the application. Your references will receive an email from TCU asking them to upload a LOR on your behalf.
