Job description

The Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) Program in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is seeking to appoint a tenure-track faculty member –an Assistant Professor, or an early-in-rank Associate Professor — to serve as a core faculty member in our thriving Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Program and to take a leading role in developing and expanding the PPE Program.   The position will begin on July 1, 2023.  The successful candidate will likely have a primary appointment in the Philosophy Department, which houses the PPE Program and the PPE Society, although appointment in either Political Science or Public Policy is a possibility, depending on the candidate’s qualifications.

AOS: Areas of specialization that fall under the umbrella of PPE  (e.g., political philosophy, ethics and public policy, feminism, philosophy of race, philosophy of social science, rational choice theory) and active research interests in PPE. AOC: Less an area of competence but still a requisite qualification: a willingness and capacity to teach courses that cover aspects of political economy, public choice, and game theory. Salary commensurate with qualifications. Normal responsibilities include a standard 2-2 teaching load, graduate student supervision, committee work, and active support and engagement with PPE-related undergraduate extracurricular activities.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.

The December 1, 2022 review of applications date is a soft date. Applications received by that date will get full consideration. We will try to give the same consideration for applications that received after December 1, 2022, but we cannot guarantee it. We will continue our review of applications until the position is filled.

Your application should include:

a cover letter that speaks explicitly and substantively to your interests in and ability to contribute to a Philosophy, Politics and Economics Program,
a curriculum vitae,
a writing sample,
a description of your research,
evidence of teaching quality,
a sample syllabus,
• The names, titles, affiliations, and email addresses of those who are writing letters of recommendation for you (three are required, six are permitted). Recommenders identified by the applicant will be contacted via email with instructions for uploading their letters of support. Alternatively, applicants may list Interfolio as a reference and the application system will solicit recommendations directly from Interfolio. Please see the Interfolio information about Online Application Delivery. Finally, applicants may also and instead list the email address of a Graduate Coordinator willing to upload their confidential references instead of the referring faculty.
