Job description

The Philosophy Department at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia seeks a candidate with a serious research interest in Philosophy of Religion. While an AOS in Philosophy of Religion, with associated dissertation and course work, is a sufficient condition for eligibility, applicants with an AOS in Epistemology, Metaphysics, or Medieval Philosophy (including Aquinas) are also eligible, given evidence of course work, publications, or other indicators of research interest relevant to teaching and developing courses in the Faith and Reason area of our core curriculum. The candidate must have a writing sample that addresses epistemological or metaphysical issues in Philosophy of Religion. 

In addition, candidates must also be prepared to teach our core course PHL 154 Moral Foundations and will have opportunities to teach other philosophy courses in both our general education program and philosophy major. Opportunities for teaching in honors and service-learning programs exist.  Our faculty typically have 3 to 4 course preparations per year with a 3:3 yearly academic load.  

It is essential that the candidate demonstrate a commitment to undergraduate teaching, and the ability to contribute to the mission of a Jesuit Catholic University in a deliberately diverse department.  Women and members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.  

Strong evidence of Ph.D. completion by August 15, 2018 is required. The salary is competitive. 

For full consideration, on-line applications should be completed by November 27, 2017.   See the Department’s website for further information:  http://www.sju.edu/int/academics/cas/philosophy/

Saint Joseph’s University is a private, Catholic, and Jesuit institution and, as stated above, expects members of its community to be knowledgeable about its mission and to make a positive contribution to that mission.
