Job description

The Princeton University Philosophy Department and the University Center for Human Values invite applications for a Visiting Research Scholar position for Fall 2024. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Philosophy or Religious Studies (or related fields) and a strong record of research and teaching excellence. The appointment is expected to extend from September 1, 2024, through December 31, 2024.

The candidate will be expected to devote the academic term to research, discussion, and scholarly collaboration on topics relevant to Lara Buchak and Andrew Chignell's project "Philosophy, Religion, and Existential Commitment in Society" (PRECIS). This is a new initiative of the Princeton Project in Philosophy and Religion (pppr.princeton.edu). No teaching is involved, but the selected candidate would be asked to lead an informal undergraduate reading group and give an undergraduate-accessible talk at some point during the term. The individual will be expected to reside in or around Princeton or demonstrate to the program's satisfaction the ability to be on campus daily. They will have an office in the Center for Culture, Society, and Religion and also participate in some regular events there.
