The Department of Philosophy at the University of South Alabama invites applications for a full-time (9 month), tenure-track assistant professor position in philosophy, starting August 15, 2018. ABD candidates will be considered, but an earned Ph.D. in philosophy or a closely related field is required at the time of appointment.  The area of specialization is open, but the department does seek candidates who can contribute to the minor in Philosophy and Medicine or to either the department’s concentration in Classics or its concentration in Religion. Applications are to be uploaded at Academicjobsonline.org and should include the following: (1) a cover letter that briefly addresses the applicant’s suitability for teaching courses in the desired AOCs; (2) a writing sample; (3) CV; (4) brief statement of teaching philosophy; (5) evidence of teaching effectiveness; (6) three letters of reference uploaded by the referees or appropriate placement office/dossier service; and, (7) transcripts (copies are acceptable initially but candidates invited for on-campus interviews will have to request official transcripts be sent to the Chair of the Search Committee by all colleges/universities the candidates have attended).

Questions about the position may be directed to Prof. Allan Hillman, hillman@southalabama.edu. Review of applications begins April 10, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.
