Bertrand Russell Visiting Professorship
The Department of Philosophy invites applications for a Visiting Professorship in Russell and the History of Early Analytic Philosophy for 2018-2019. McMaster University houses the Bertrand Russell Archives and the Bertrand Russell Research Centre, and it is one of the leading centres for research on Russell's philosophy. This Visiting Professorship is primarily intended for established scholars whose research would benefit from access to the Bertrand Russell Archives for an extended period. However, applications will also be considered from scholars at an earlier stage in their career who have a strong research project that would benefit from access to the archives.
The Visiting Professorship is tenable for either one or two semesters. The Visiting Professor’s duties include presenting at least one paper in the Philosophy Department's Speakers Series and teaching one fourth-year undergraduate course also open to graduates, preferably on the history of analytic philosophy (although a different topic may be agreed upon with the Chair of the Department of Philosophy).The stipend for teaching the course is up to $17,197.00, depending on rank, in accordance with the standard schedule for overload teaching. It is expected that successful applicants will be on research leave from their home university during the term of their Visiting Professorship and thus can rely on their regular leave salary for their main financial support. Review of applications will commence on April 15, 2018.
