ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY, Tempe, AZ (ASU JOB# 12144) The School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies invites applications for a full-time, tenure eligible Assistant Professor in Philosophy with an anticipated start date of August 2018. The successful candidate will be expected to: contribute to curriculum development; deliver instruction at the undergraduate, master's and doctoral levels; supervise honors, masters, and doctoral students; conduct research publishable in top-tier academic journals in the discipline; and participate in professional and university service.

As we are using it, 'applied moral, political, social, or legal philosophy' refers not only to the application of theories developed within moral, political, social, or legal philosophy to everyday problems or phenomena but also to the application of research produced by methods used in other disciplines in order to understand and address questions in moral, political, social, or legal philosophy (for example, experimental philosophy concerning issues in metaethics or normative ethics).

  • Demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching at the university level. 
  • Demonstrated potential for excellence in research. 
  • Area of Specialization (AOS) in applied moral, political, social, or legal philosophy, as broadly construed above. 
  • Ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses that complement the School’s existing PhD program and its focus on practical and applied philosophy. For related information, please see: https://shprs.clas.asu.edu/graduate/philosophy-0.
