The Department of Philosophy at Hamilton College invites applications for a one year leave replacement at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2018. We seek candidates to teach in:

AOS: Open

AOC: Introductory Symbolic Logic and History of Modern Philosophy

We seek candidates who can demonstrate their experience in teaching or working with diverse student populations. Your cover letter should address the ways in which you would advance the College's goal of building a diverse educational environment. For candidates’ information, the College recently instituted a Social, Structural, and Institutional Hierarchies requirement students must take in their concentrations which requires that:

            …students gain an understanding of structural and institutional hierarchies based on one or more of the social categories of race, class, gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexuality, age, and abilities/disabilities. The requirement should encourage students to think critically about accomplishments, experiences, and representations of various social groups in the United States and/or other countries.

The teaching load for this position is five courses.

We will consider ABD candidates provided the Ph.D. is expected by the July 1, 2018 appointment.

Candidates should submit a letter of application, CV, and teaching materials, and arrange for three letters of references to be submitted via Interfolio at apply.interfolio.com/46968.
