The Department of Philosophy in St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at St. John’s University (New York) is seeking applicants for a full-time tenure track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor, to begin in fall 2018.

St. John's University (www.stjohns.edu), founded in 1870, is a Catholic and Vincentian university that prepares students for personal and professional success in today’s global society. The Princeton Review and other top rankings consistently recognize the University’s outstanding academics, diverse student body, dynamic internship and volunteer opportunities, focus on student life, and diverse study abroad offerings. Our quality springs from an institutional vision of excellence and service. Students come from nearly 50 states and 127 countries to pursue more than 100 associate, bachelor’s, master's, and doctoral degrees in the arts, humanities, business, education, law, pharmacy, the sciences, and specialized professional programs. The University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and 12 other major academic and professional associations. St. John’s has three New York City campuses; a Graduate Center in Hauppauge, NY; international campuses in Rome, Italy, and Paris, France; and study abroad locations in Seville, Spain, and around the world. The University's Division I athletic program offers 17 men's and women's programs in the Big East Conference.

St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the cornerstone and oldest division of St. John’s University. The College offers three undergraduate degrees: the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Fine Arts. Although the College has always emphasized the liberal arts tradition, we offer more than thirty majors and forty minors in the arts and sciences, business, and education. The college’s graduate division provides numerous programs leading to master’s and doctorate degrees. St. John’s College serves approximately 3300 undergraduate and graduate students. Faculty in the College also teach the majority of courses in the University’s core curriculum whose courses are taken by every St. John’s University undergraduate student regardless of college/school or major.

The Department of Philosophy comprises 20 full-time and 30 part-time professors on our two NYC campuses, Queens and Staten Island. We are dedicated to the highest standards of undergraduate education, currently with three required courses in the University Core Curriculum—Philosophy of the Human Person, Ethics, and Metaphysics. We currently have more than 100 majors and minors. Recently we have begun to develop combined programs that could lead to the availability of some graduate courses.


Description of Responsibilities:

This is a full-time, tenure-track position on the Queens campus starting September 2018. The normal teaching load is 3/3 with a possibility of one course reduction per semester for those engaged in intensive research. All full-time faculty members are expected to fulfill the usual committee and advisement responsibilities.


Candidates should have a PhD in Philosophy at the time of appointment, evidence of teaching excellence, and a program of scholarly research. AOS: Political Philosophy; AOC: Philosophy of Race and Gender, or Eastern Philosophy.  An especially attractive strength would be an ability to work at the intersection of philosophy, politics, and economics.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Submit your letter of interest, CV, and the names of three references. For full consideration please submit materials by January 15, 2018.

Letters of recommendation, teaching dossier, a writing sample, and other materials will be requested later.
