We are a pluralistic department with special strengths in Africana philosophy, philosophy of law, normative ethics, and bioethics. Applicants must have a strong record of research, teaching, and professional service commensurate with the rank of associate or full professor and evidence of effective communication and organizational skills. Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest, a current curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three to five references.
