The Department of Philosophy, Religion, and Classics at Butler University seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor whose area of specialization is contemporary social and political philosophy and ethics, and whose scholarly interests involve critical reflection on social justice and diversity, and applied ethics.

In addition to the undergraduate philosophy program, candidates would be expected to regularly teach courses in Butler’s First Year Seminar and/or Global and Historical Studies programs (parts of Butler’s core curriculum), and to contribute to one or more of the college’s interdisciplinary programs: International Studies; Gender, Women’s, and Sexuality Studies; Peace and Conflict Studies; and Science, Technology, and Environmental Studies. The candidate will also be expected to help lead the department’s Ethics minor. The successful candidate will display clear indications of being a program builder with an interest in helping grow the number of Philosophy/Ethics majors and minors, and will demonstrate an inspiring enthusiasm for undergraduate teaching. Teaching load is 3/3. Candidates should expect to complete their PhD by August 1st, 2018.
