Job description

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Northern Colorado seeks a colleague who has a strong commitment to general undergraduate teaching and interests that complement those of our existing faculty. Collectively, our current faculty is broadly trained in Western philosophy with strengths in ethics, metaphysics and epistemology, and the history of ancient, modern and recent continental thought. We are committed to diversifying our philosophical curriculum and to exploring philosophical claims embedded in other disciplines and human pursuits. Enthusiasm for undergraduate teaching and bringing the benefits of philosophy to non-majors and general audiences is essential; the ability to offer upper-division courses suitable for cross-listing with other departments is desirable. This is a tenure track position with a 3/3 or 60% teaching load (with 20% of time dedicated to undergraduate advising and professional/community service, and 20% dedicated to scholarship).The successful applicant must have PhD in hand prior to the start date.

Screening of applications will begin by September 15th and continue until the position is filled. For fullest consideration, applications must be received by November 1, 2016.

How to apply
