The Department of Philosophy at Tufts University is seeking a part-time lecturer to teach a course in Feminist Philosophy in the Fall of 2024. The course will meet twice a week, each time for 75 minutes. The instructor of the course is also expected to be available to the students outside of class, at least two hours a week. The aim of the course is to introduce the students to key concepts, ideas, debates, and texts in Feminist Philosophy, as well as to the historical development of the field, while at the same time relating those issues to the students’ own experiences.  

ABD or PhD in Philosophy required, with evidence of serious interest in Feminist Philosophy. Teaching experience and evidence of successful teaching are also required.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To receive full consideration applicants should apply by April 1, 2024. 

Please address questions via e-mail, using the subject line “Feminist Philosophy Search,” to department administrator Jaouad Elkamouss: [email protected].
