Job description

The University of Virginia's program in Political Philosophy, Policy & Law (PPL) invites applications for one, possibly two, full-time DeOlazarra Fellows for the academic year beginning August 2017, with the possibility to renew for a second academic year. Renewals are subject to availability of funding and satisfactory performance. Compensation will take the form of salary and benefits. Applicants must specialize in contemporary political theory/philosophy, particularly as it applies to the evaluation of important issues in public policy. A background in jurisprudence or legal theory is also desirable. PPL is a selective interdisciplinary undergraduate major in which fourth year students develop substantial research projects in the context of a capstone seminar. The fellow will preside over this seminar during the spring semester as well as teach one fall semester course in his or her area of interest. Applicants must be on track to receive a Ph.D. in Political Science or a related field by May 2017 and must hold a PhD by June 15, 2017. Candidates must combine strong research potential with commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching.

To apply, please complete a Candidate Profile online through Jobs@ UVA (https://jobs.virginia.edu), and electronically attach the following: a current CV, cover letter, statement of teaching, unofficial transcript and writing sample. Search on posting 0620670.

Priority consideration will be given to applications received by May 20, 2017; however, the position will remain open until filled.
