Job Description

With our institutional mission to transform lives, the Department of Philosophy in the College of arts & Sciences, University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) is seeking a collaborative and curious colleague who is open to the diverse perspectives and strengths of our faculty and student body for an Assistant Professor position. Our successful candidate will have proven strengths in the traditional areas of academic activity.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach a variety of undergraduate and/or graduate courses across our curriculum.  Additionally, you will be expected to support the success of a diverse student body at the undergraduate level, and actively contribute to the M.A. in Philosophy program.  The normal teaching load for research-active faculty is 2/2 - two courses per semester for two 16-week semesters.

You will also be expected to conduct research and serve the Department, College, University and/or profession.


The successful candidate must have completed their PhD in Philosophy or equivalent by the start date of the appointment.

Candidates will be evaluated on their strong record of research, demonstrable through existing publications in leading academic journals and a research pipeline. Areas of specialization include ethics and applied ethics, with a slight preference for bioethics. Additionally, the University of Missouri System has recently launched a strategic initiative on precision health (https://precisionhealth.missouri.edu/). The ability to produce research that contributes to this strategic initiative would be an asset.
