Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, in Be’er Sheva, Israel, seeks to appoint an outstanding philosopher to a tenure-track position, beginning October 2024.

The Department welcomes applications from candidates in all specializations and competencies but has particular research and teaching needs in Early Modern Philosophy.  We therefore especially welcome applications from outstanding candidates working in the history of philosophy from the 16th through the early 18th century

Positions at Ben-Gurion University traditionally begin at the Lecturer or Senior Lecturer rank, but this call for applications is also open to candidates of more senior rank.

The Department of Philosophy at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev sets the highest value on excellence in both teaching and research. We are a relatively small department, and all our members play an active role in administrative work and are expected to contribute to University governance. Faculty Members are expected to compete for external research funding, in which our Department has an excellent record.

Job responsibilities include teaching required and elective courses in the candidate’s area of specialization at both the B.A. and M.A. levels and general introductory courses in philosophy as well. Members are also expected to advise and mentor our undergraduate and graduate students at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels.

Qualifications: The language of instruction and departmental and university governance is Hebrew. Accordingly, candidates will be expected to be capable of teaching and working in Hebrew.

The position is open to all candidates who hold a Ph.D. in philosophy. Candidates must have a Ph.D  degree in hand by the application date.

For further details about the position, please contact the Department Chair, Andy German ([email protected]). Please address administrative queries to the Administrative Coordinator, Ms. Merav Ben-Shushan Zach ([email protected]).
