Job description

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Philosophy (AOS Open)

 The Philosophy Department at Purdue University, West Lafayette campus, invites applications for a three-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Philosophy (August 1, 2018 -- July 31, 2021).  We seek a philosopher of exceptional promise who will contribute to the excellence of our department. Candidates working in any area of philosophy are encouraged to apply. 

 The position will have a salary of $47,500 and provide an annual research allowance of $1,200.  The successful applicant will be expected to teach 2 courses per year (1-1 load) and will be given the opportunity (and funding) to organize a conference in the second or third year of their fellowship.  The postdoctoral fellow will work closely with a faculty mentor on an appropriate plan of research and professional development within the three-year time period of the fellowship.

 To be eligible for consideration, applicants must have received their Ph.D. between September 1, 2013 and June 30, 2018.

 Deadline for applications is December 30, 2017.

 Purdue University’s Department of Philosophy is committed to advancing diversity in all areas of faculty effort, including scholarship, instruction, and engagement.  Candidates should address at least one of these areas in their cover letter, indicating their past experiences, current interests or activities, and/or future goals to promote a climate that values diversity and inclusion.

 Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a writing sample (no longer than 25 pages), three letters of recommendation, a one-page research statement, and a teaching portfolio that includes evidence of teaching excellence.  The cover letter must specify the applicant’s choice of mentor within the department.  Applications will be via Academic Jobs Online (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo).  Please address questions to search committee chair Dr. Christopher Yeomans, cyeomans@purdue.edu.

 Please Note: This position is separate from the concurrent Medieval Postdoctoral Fellowship.  Applicants may not apply for both Fellowships.

 Purdue University is an EEO/AA employer. All individuals, including minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
