Department

UNH COLA Philosophy

Summary of Position

The Department of Philosophy at the University of New Hampshire seeks a full-time assistant professor to begin in fall 2023. The successful candidate will have the expertise to teach courses in the history of modern philosophy. Being able to teach courses in the areas of race and/or gender, or in the history and philosophy of science will be beneficial, too. The candidate will contribute their expertise in teaching undergraduates, they are expected to be actively involved in ongoing research, and they will provide service to the department, the university, and the philosophy profession. The standard teaching load is two courses per semester. The candidate will be teaching philosophy to undergraduates, so it is especially important that they are invested and interested in teaching philosophy to young people who are new to the discipline.
The University of New Hampshire and our Department believe that a faculty, student, and staff community comprised of people with different identities: gender, class, ethnic affiliation, sexual orientation, disability, race, and religious affiliation among others, is central to our goal of creating an academically and socially robust campus community where all members can thrive. This position is open to all qualified candidates. We encourage those who identify as members of groups that have historically been under-represented in the academy to apply.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, teaching statement, and three confidential letters of reference, one of which should address the applicant’s teaching experience, teaching portfolio, a diversity statement, and a sample of written work in the area of specialization.

Please submit materials by December 1, 2022.
