Job description

Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Lewis & Clark College

Located in Portland, Oregon, Lewis & Clark College is a small liberal arts college with 2100 undergraduates. We invite applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in the Department of Philosophy. A Ph.D. or terminal degree is required at the time of appointment in Fall 2024. Preferred research areas may include Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Mind, or Epistemology with teaching fields including Philosophy of Technology (Data Ethics), Biomedical Ethics, Feminist Philosophy, or Non-Western Philosophy. We will consider other areas that complement the expertise of our current faculty.

The Department of Philosophy offers courses that span western philosophy, non-western philosophy, 19th century philosophy, continental philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and the philosophies of religion, science, and law. Our three tenured faculty members teach courses that serve our 40 majors and contribute to a variety of programs including Environmental Studies, Data Science, Neuroscience, Health Studies, and CORE. Our students participate in research mentored by faculty and present this work at a variety of professional conferences. Ours is a vibrant intellectual community, with monthly colloquia and a student-led yearly Philosophy Extravaganza event.

We invite applicants to join this supportive, creative, and collaborative community of scholar-teachers as we prepare students for meaningful careers, civic engagement, and lifelong discovery. Together we seek a just and sustainable society, both locally and globally. We seek candidates who wish to become excellent teachers and scholars at an undergraduate institution and whose varied experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds can contribute to a diverse and inclusive community of critical thinkers. Our faculty typically teach five courses per academic year, including participation in the College’s general education program, and advise and mentor students with varied backgrounds from across the US and around the globe. The college provides a paid pre-tenure junior sabbatical, mentoring, and professional development support.

A complete application must include a cover letter which describes your interest in joining Lewis & Clark College, your research interests, your teaching philosophy, your preparation to teach students from diverse backgrounds, and a description of the ways you can contribute to a culture of equity and inclusion on our campus. We also require a curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, a sample of scholarship (which may be work in progress), graduate transcripts, and three letters of recommendation (uploaded separately by your recommenders). Materials may be addressed to Dr. Joel A. Martinez and must be submitted via Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/131313. Click “Apply” to create your free account. Review of applications will begin on October 23 and continue until the position is filled. Lewis & Clark College will conduct a background check at the time an offer is made.
