Job description

The Philosophy Department at Queens College, CUNY invites applications for a Doctoral Lecturer position beginning in the Fall semester of 2023. This position carries a 24-credit workload, equivalent to four courses each semester; it does not include a research commitment. Reappointment to a sixth year comes with a Certificate of Continuous Employment (equivalent to tenure). We seek candidates who are committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and identify with the educational mission of Queens College and the City University of New York.

The person appointed will teach introductory courses in Philosophy for the Philosophy Department and the Percy E. Sutton SEEK (Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge) program, and elective courses for Philosophy majors and minors. We are particularly interested in candidates with a background in teaching writing at the college level. The Department will consider candidates with any area of teaching competence, but will give preference to those whose strengths complement rather than duplicate the expertise of our teaching faculty and add to the diversity of our current course offerings. The successful applicant is expected to participate in the department’s advising and service responsibilities and to maintain a record of continuous professional development.

Launched in 1966, SEEK is designed to reach qualified equity-deserving high school graduates, who are supported from admission until graduation. Incoming freshmen start in the summer with an intensive college-prep experience. Incoming transfer students previously enrolled in any Higher Education Opportunity Programs (CD, SEEK, EOP, or HEOP) are also eligible for SEEK and receive all its additional services and benefits.


A Ph.D. in Philosophy by September 1, 2023, prior teaching experience, and evidence of teaching effectiveness in Philosophy are required. Experience in teaching writing at the college level is strongly preferred, as is teaching competence in areas of Philosophy that are currently not represented in the Department.
