Job description

Description of Department/Program:

The mission of the CWCTP is to explore the culture, languages and ideas of the Western tradition, ranging from antiquity to modern society. The Center is especially concerned with the values that emerge from that tradition, and their ongoing role in the institutions of the United States. Integral to this mission is the Center’s commitment to fostering research, debate and dialogue on the fundamental issues of our time – moral, political and economic. Our aim is to promote a lively and balanced conversation that respects both conservative and liberal ideals, thus fostering the full diversity of political, economic and philosophical perspectives on the CU Boulder campus. 

Overview of Job Duties:

The Center for Western Civilization, Thought & Policy invites applications to join our new, interdisciplinary community of Scholars in Residence. For this position we are accepting applications for PhD philosophers in the values area, with a special interest in scholars whose research focuses significantly in the area of applied normative philosophy broadly understood to include work on practical issues in moral, social, political, and legal philosophy. Applicants may be junior candidates or senior scholars.  Selections will be made on the basis of candidates’ relevance to our theme for the year, “Freedom and Security”, as well as on their ability to promote the larger mission of the CWCTP, as described above. 

The CWCTP Scholar in Residence is a one-year, non-tenure-track, Scholar-in-Residence appointment. An extended letter of interest should describe in some detail the candidate’s fit with one or both parts of the Center’s theme of “Freedom and Security”, and with the Center’s larger mission, and it should also describe a research or intellectual project to be accomplished over the course of the year.

The letter should articulate the intellectual significance of this project, the sort of tangible results that will be achieved by the end of the appointment, and how those results can contribute to the Center, the Department of Philosophy, the Philosophy Department’s Center for Values and Social Policy, and the broader university community.  In addition, applications should include a CV and list of at least three references.

Scholars in Residence should expect to teach one to two courses or otherwise engage the learning mission of the University. They will participate regularly in the extended community of the Center, the Department of Philosophy, and the Center for Values and Social Policy, through attendance at lectures, engagement with students, and participation in the academic life of the University.
