Job description

The Hope College Philosophy Department invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level to begin in August 2018.  The area of specialization is open, but with a strong preference for someone with teaching and research interests in at least one of the following areas: Ancient/Medieval Philosophy, Ethics, or Philosophy of Mind.  We also have a preference for hiring individuals with ability to teach courses that include global perspectives and cross traditional disciplinary and divisional boundaries.  Examples of such courses would include those treating philosophical issues in Ecology, Economics, Sustainability, Technology, Race, and Gender, but the possibilities are not to be understood as limited to the courses listed.

Ph.D. in hand preferred by start of the appointment. Interdisciplinary teaching experience preferred. An active research agenda is expected, and willingness to work collaboratively with students on candidate's research is highly desirable. Strong candidates should demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence and to the character and goals of a liberal arts college with a Christian perspective.

Hope College is a four-year liberal arts college where academic excellence and vibrant Christian faith join together in a supportive and welcoming community. Hope offers an academically rigorous, co-educational and residential education to 3,200 undergraduate students from more than 40 states and 45 countries. Affiliated with the Reformed Church in America since its founding in 1866, Hope College is known for its invitational ecumenical Christian atmosphere, friendly campus community, and well-balanced academic and co-curricular offerings. Hope's beautiful campus is located just steps from award-winning downtown Holland, Michigan and less than seven miles from Lake Michigan.
