Job description

The Department of Philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences at Texas A&M University, College Station (http://philosophy.tamu.edu ) seeks qualified applicants for a Visiting Assistant Professor position.

This position is a two-year appointment for a 9-month, full-time, non-tenure track position to teach a 1:1 load. The salary for this position will be $50,000. The Department of Philosophy seeks highly qualified candidates with expertise in professional and applied ethics, normative ethics, and ethical theory. 

This position is designed to provide highly qualified candidates with the opportunity to conduct research that will advance professional ethics in engineering and related areas, to teach a moderate course load in Texas A&M's acclaimed undergraduate engineering ethics program (PHIL 482: Engineering and Ethics, equivalent to 1:1 course load), and to contribute to the organization of programming associated with the Bovay Endowed Chair, such as an annual Bovay workshop.


A Ph.D. in Philosophy is required. Preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers. This preference for scholars who have received their doctoral degrees in the past five years will help promote the areas of research and teaching supported by the Bovay endowment.
