Post Doctoral Fellowship, Stanford University, Philosophy and Literature Program


Stanford’s Philosophy and Literature Initiative seeks a two-year postdoctoral fellow who will contribute to the work of our Ph.D. Minor in Philosophy, Literature, and the Arts.  The fellow will be housed in the Philosophy Department.  Candidates with strengths in aesthetics are particularly welcome, but we will consider philosophers from any AOS or subfield who show strong research interests and teaching capacity (at both graduate and undergraduate levels) relevant to the interdisciplinary intersection of philosophy, literary studies, and arts criticism, broadly conceived. 

The appointment term is September 1, 2018-August 31, 2020.  Applicants must have completed all requirements for their Ph.D. by June 30, 2018.  Candidates must also be no more than 3 years from the awarding of their degree (i.e., Ph.D. should be September 2015 or later).

The application deadline is January 3, 2018 (5:00 pm Pacific Standard Time).
