Job description

The Philosophy Department of Elon University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor, beginning mid-August 2018. Elon University is an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse faculty, staff, and student body and welcomes all applicants. We seek a candidate, Ph.D. in hand (or with a defense date set), whose teaching is organic to their philosophical life and would complement and enrich the Philosophy Department’s areas of expertise and long-standing focus on innovative, engaged, praxis-oriented pedagogy. For more on our teaching practices, see our description of departmental signature pedagogies. AOS or very strong AOC: Environmental Philosophy (very broadly construed—we are open to a wide diversity of approaches, and would be particularly interested in human/non-human relations; race, poverty and the environment; environmental humanities; environmental activism; ecofeminism and ecocriticism; and philosophy of nature). Teaching responsibility will include 6 classes per year, typically including 4 introductory level classes and 2 upper level classes (one or both within Environmental Philosophy), and will include some courses in Elon’s General Studies program. Elon is a dynamic private, co-educational, comprehensive institution that is a national model for actively engaging faculty and students in teaching and learning in a liberal arts based residential campus. To learn more about Elon, please visit us as www.elon.edu. Please submit 1. a cover letter (which should include a statement of how you will help foster diversity and diverse learning within the department), 2. a C.V., 3. graduate transcripts, 4. a substantial statement of teaching philosophy and aspirations, 5. a research statement, 6. a summary of teaching/course evaluations, 7. two recent syllabi, 8. three letters of recommendation, 9. a writing sample, and 10. the names and numbers of three current or former students who can act as references to philosophyjob@elon.edu. According to best practices for inclusive hiring, we ask that the cover letter, teaching statement, research statement, and C.V. be prepared for anonymous review (see our website for more detailed instructions on anonymizing process). The first round of application evaluations will focus exclusively on the cover letter, teaching statement, research statement, and C.V. Applications are due by December 15, 2017. If you have questions, please email Stephen Bloch-Schulman, the chair of the search committee (sschulman@elon.edu).
