THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO LAW SCHOOL. The University of Chicago Law School seeks a Law and Philosophy Fellow, appointed with the rank of Lecturer, for the academic year 2017-18. This is a twelve month appointment and is expected to begin July 1, 2017. A Ph.D. in philosophy by time of appointment is expected, though in unusual cases a Ph.D. in a related discipline, or a J.D. accompanied by strong training in philosophy, will be considered. Applications welcome from new or recent PhDs or tenure-stream faculty interested in spending a year at the Law School. The Fellow will co-teach the Law & Philosophy Workshop with Martha Nussbaum on "Environment and Animal Rights" (including, e.g., philosophical discussions of the moral status of nonhuman animals and the philosophical basis for claims involving them, the ethics of climate change, the ethical basis for valuing ecosystems, and the upshot of all of this for both domestic and international law). AOS: any parts of moral and political philosophy related to the workshop themes; AOC: open. The Workshop will meet about 12-14 times over the course of the academic year, with two initial meetings with students only, and then 10-12 times to discuss papers by invited speakers. The Fellow will also be expected to supervise student papers, and to contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School, as well as pursue his or her research. Salary $55K + benefits + superb research environment.
