Seton Hall University is hiring a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Philosophy to begin in the Fall 2024. AOS in Bioethics. AOC is open. This faculty member will teach a range of undergraduate courses in bioethics, medical ethics, and medical humanities and have opportunity to advise students and develop curricular and extra curricular programming in applied ethics and medical humanities.

Teaching, scholarship, and service.

The faculty member will be expected to serve at least a three-year term as director of our Medical Humanities program https://www.shu.edu/academics/minor-in-medical-humanities.html.
