Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
Location Bedford Park, South Australia, Australia
Job description
Associate Professor - Research Academic, Continental Philosophy

The Position

The Associate Professor will undertake research in Continental Philosophy aligned with one of the College’s Research Themes. The position will provide leadership and vision in this key area of research of the College.

Particular activities include setting the strategic research goals for the program, expanding the research program through the attraction of external funding and establishing its reputation on an international scale in alignment with the strategic directions of the College and University.

The University

Flinders University is a globally focused, locally engaged institution with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research.

Flinders is ranked the number one South Australian university for teaching quality, learning engagement and student support. 90% of our assessed research has been ranked at or above world standard.  Flinders’ commitment to making a positive impact is reflected in our strategic plan Making a Difference: the 2025 Agenda.

To achieve the University’s 2025 Agenda the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences is looking to appoint outstanding academics across a range of discipline areas and levels of seniority.

The College

The College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences enjoys a well-justified reputation for excellence in teaching and research.

Encompassing teaching and research activities within languages, culture and communication, social sciences, performing and creative arts, and history and archaeology, we aim to bring together high profile interdisciplinary and disciplinary projects dedicated to major cultural, environmental, geographical, historical and social challenges of our time.

Humanities at Flinders

With research activity currently ranked as ‘above world standard’, historians and archaeologists at Flinders University investigate the recent and the much more distant past. Australian and South Australian history are key areas of focus, particularly war studies, humanitarianism and migration history. The College is home to the 2017 and 2018 South Australian Historian of the Year.

In English literature, Flinders staff have excelled in publications relating to the Early Modern period, producing works dealing with satire and the history of emotions. Modern and contemporary English literature are also areas of interest. Flinders researchers make substantial contributions to research in feminist criticism, to the study of comic and satirical modes of expression, and to new forms of literary communication, including digital and visual.

Flinders is continuing to enforce its strength in philosophy, particularly in analytical and continental areas. Focus lies in moral and political philosophy, where research also strengthens activities in other disciplines in the College, such as indigenous studies, women’s studies and sociology.

If you’re excited by change, if you have a passion for excellence and innovation, and if you want to work in an organisation dedicated to student success and outstanding research, this is your opportunity to make an impact.

Salary: About 250,000 RMB for the Assistant Professor Position and about 350,000 RMB for the Associate Professor Position.

It is long and burdensome for both sides, so the recommended candidate should expect to spend much time and effort going through the process with us. People who are unwilling or unable to go through this process should not apply.

CHI Fellow and Visiting Lecturer (Fixed term)
Job category Junior faculty / Fixed term
AOS Open
AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 5
Location Amherst, Massachusetts, United States
Start date September 1, 2019
Job description

The Center for Humanistic Inquiry (CHI) at Amherst College seeks scholars from across the disciplines for full-time, two-year appointments as CHI Fellows and visiting lecturers.  In colloquy with one another and the Amherst faculty, CHI Fellows will explore the theme of “Home.” We invite applications from scholars whose research takes up some aspect of our theme (described in more detail below) from a humanistic perspective.  Within the last decade, Amherst College has profoundly transformed its student body in terms of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race, and nationality.  Today, nearly one-quarter of Amherst’s students are Pell grant recipients; 45 percent of our students identify as domestic students of color; and 10 percent of our students are international students. 

Fellows will have offices in the center and are expected to be fully in residence during the 2019–2021 academic years and to participate in seminars, conferences, and other programming organized to explore our theme.  A Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree is required.  Fellows will also teach at least one course during the period of the fellowship. These fellowships include an annual salary of $50,000 and, in addition, an annual $2,500 allowance for professional travel and research support and additional support for moving expenses.

Candidates are asked to submit electronically to https://apply.interfolio.com/58708 a cover letter that addresses the connection between the candidate’s scholarship and the center’s theme, a CV, a research statement, a writing sample, and three confidential letters of recommendation addressed to Professor Martha M. Umphrey, director, Center for Humanistic Inquiry, Amherst College.  Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2019, and continue until the positions are filled. Applications received by this date will be assured of full consideration. 

The college is committed to enriching its educational experience and its culture through the diversity of its faculty, administration, and staff. Amherst College is an equal opportunity employer and encourages women, persons of color, and persons with disabilities to apply.

Home

Across time and space and culture, there has been perhaps no more resonant an idea than that of “home.”  Both material and affective, home is a space of origin and dwelling, set apart from spheres of promiscuous public interaction and of emptiness.  To have a home is to be more than housed:  it is to be given an identity, to feel belonging, to find refuge, to constitute private or domestic life, to gather people and material objects, and to generate memory.  By contrast, to be without a home is to be outside of or excluded from that centering and protective space, to feel estrangement or abandonment, to wander detached from place, or perhaps from another perspective to take on a new and cosmopolitan identity, self-willed and multivalent. 

Yet home and homelessness are also constituted from the outside – constructed through policy, imbued with ideology, and elaborated aesthetically in relation to other times and traditions.  Authorities construct and destroy homes; institutions proclaim their economic and moral value; designers imagine their utopic possibilities.  What is home’s force or energy as a thing and an idea?  How is home imagined, deployed, and conjured as an object of desire?  How is home simultaneously a mechanism of protection and of exclusion?  Who can have a home, and what are the conditions of its possibility?  How has the home evolved historically and manifested differently across cultures?  What is home’s relation to language and identity, exile and migration?

Professor of Instruction of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy & Religion within the College of Arts and Letters at The University of Tampa invites applications for a non-tenure-track, full-time Instructional Faculty position (Professor of Instruction) beginning in August 2019.   

The University of Tampa is a medium-sized, comprehensive, residentially based private institution of 9,200 undergraduate and graduate students. The University is ideally situated on a beautiful 110-acre campus next to the Hillsborough River, adjacent to Tampa’s dynamic central business district, which is a growing, vibrant, diverse metropolitan area. UT reflects this vibrancy; with 22 consecutive years of enrollment growth UT boasts 260 student organizations, a multicultural student body from 50 states and 140 countries and “Top Tier” ranking in U.S. News and World Report.

Teaching load is 4 courses (16 credit hours) per semester at the introductory undergraduate level. The Area of Specialization (AOS) is Open. However, either the Area of Specialization or the Area of Competence must include Africana Philosophy and/or Philosophy of Race (both broadly construed). Willingness to develop competence to teach either or both of the following undergraduate courses is highly desirable:  an intro-level World Religions course (run under a Religion/Religious Studies course designation) and an intro-level Modern Philosophy (i.e., 17th and 18th-century Western philosophy from Descartes through Kant with an emphasis on metaphsyics and epistemology) course. In addition, depending upon the needs of the department, the successful candidate will teach Introduction to Philosophy and may be permitted to teach additional intro-level courses that focus upon diverse perspectives in philosophy.

The department is committed to rigorous undergraduate teaching that introduces students to an inclusive vision of philosophy encompassing classic figures and texts, contemporary debates (both within and outside of academia), and a wide range of voices and perspectives, including many that have traditionally been marginalized. 

Teaching experience is preferred.  Ph.D. in Philosophy must be in hand no later than August 15, 2019.  The successful candidate will be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching, skilled at attracting a diverse group of students to become interested in philosophy and become philosophy majors, have a broad background in philosophy, and have teaching competencies that complement those of the existing faculty in the department.  Other responsibilities include holding regular office hours, student advising, assisting with ongoing outcomes assessment procedures, and additional professional service in support of the department, college, and university.

The Department of Philosophy & Religion offers a B.A. degree in Philosophy and a Philosophy minor. Its many activities include the preparation and coaching of a successful Ethics College Bowl team and an active Philosophy Club.

To be assured of full consideration, submit all materials  by January 4th, 2019, but please note that applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.

For details and to apply visit www.ut.edu/jobs   

Applicants should be prepared to attach a cover letter, a current curriculum vita (including at least 3 professional references), teaching portfolio, including a teaching statement and evidence of teaching effectiveness.

The University delivers challenging and high-quality educational experiences to a diverse group of learners.

We seek candidates with primary specialization in areas of philosophy that have a substantial bearing on contemporary American public affairs, including social/political philosophy, history of social/political ideas, philosophy of social science/economics, or relevant areas of ethics. We are particularly interested in applicants who will contribute to the Philosophy Department’s commitment to increasing access and opportunities for populations that are currently under-represented in the field.  In their letters of application, candidates should address their potential to contribute to the diversity of people and perspectives at the College.

Each year, candidates will teach the fall semester of the year-long IFC-sponsored Public Affairs Conversation. The fall semester looks at the evolution of contested ideals in American politics (e.g. freedom and equality) through the history of the republic, and engages a range of contemporary normative perspectives that provide the foundation for contemporary debates. The spring semester integrates normative and empirical analysis of a range of contemporary public policy issues.  In both semesters, the program is supplemented by co-curricular activities and events. In addition to teaching the fall semester of the Public Affairs Conversation each year, candidates will also teach two courses per year in the Philosophy Department that will contribute to the IFC’s mission of supporting intellectually diverse critical engagement on campus.

Established at St. Olaf in 2015, The Institute for Freedom and Community (https://institute.stolaf.edu/) is an inter-disciplinary organization which seeks to promote free inquiry and meaningful debate of important American political and social issues across ideological divisions. By exploring diverse ideas about politics, markets, and society, The IFC aims to challenge presuppositions, question easy answers, and foster constructive dialogue among those with differing values and contending points of view.

The Philosophy Department comprises nine faculty who teach and research across a broad range of the discipline.  The Department prides itself both on its devotion to teaching and its robust research environment.  The Department hosts a lively joint colloquium series with Carleton College (also in Northfield), an annual retreat with an internationally distinguished philosopher, and its annual Belgum Lecture series.

St. Olaf College is an academically rigorous, nationally ranked liberal arts college of the Lutheran Church (ELCA).  The College’s Lutheran heritage is defined by a commitment to use the gifts of reason, creativity, and empathy to their fullest; to live in community with all people; to steward carefully the resources on which we depend; and to respond in good will to the needs of neighbor and planet.  Academic staff at St. Olaf have complete academic freedom and there are no doctrinal requirements for teaching or research.  St. Olaf College is an equal employment opportunity and voluntary affirmative action employer.  The College is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community.  The College is located in Northfield, Minnesota, 45 minutes south of Minneapolis/St. Paul, a vibrant and culturally rich metropolitan area. It is home to approximately 3,000 students and 800 faculty and staff. To provide a safe and secure educational environment, St. Olaf College verifies the accuracy of all credentials presented by applicants and conducts a criminal background check on every new hire.

We seek a leading scholar with a national reputation at the intersection of ethics and health who will contribute substantially to an interdisciplinary Ethics and Health Initiative, and whose work is dedicated to examining areas relevant to HPA through the lens of formal, ethical frameworks and ethical theory. The successful candidate may apply quantitative, qualitative, mixed-methods, and normative approaches to the analysis of ethical issues within HPA's primary interest areas, including, but not limited to, health services, health policy, population health, health outcomes, economics, or management. The successful candidate will join a vibrant community of scholars dedicated to improving health services and the health of populations through research, teaching, and service. Competitive applicants will have a doctoral degree and a demonstrated ability to conduct research in a multi-disciplinary setting, including a track record for securing external research funding and demonstrated ability to work collaboratively with diverse communities. HPA and the REI both embrace diversity, equity and inclusion as core values in their missions and visions.

The successful candidate will hold a 50% appointment in the Rock Ethics Institute (http://rockethics.psu.edu/) as one of a transformative series of tenure-track appointments designed to ensure that Penn State becomes a leader in ethics-informed interdisciplinary research and the integration of ethical literacy throughout the University curriculum. Located in the College of the Liberal Arts, the REI currently has 13 tenured or tenure-track faculty shared with 8 colleges across the University, with authorization to expand to 18 tenured or tenure-track faculty over the next four years. The Rock Ethics Institute seeks candidates who will be effective in working on and leading interdisciplinary teams that embed ethical analysis into research projects and who have experience and interest in integrating ethics into undergraduate and graduate curricula. Faculty who are hired will receive a one-course release for the first five years for enhancing existing ethics research and curricular initiatives as well as building new initiatives and programs aligned with the Institute's mission.

The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is inviting applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships. At least one Fellowship, the total number depending on budgetary considerations, will be offered in areas of research supported by the Institute (including applied ethics, foundations of physics, philosophy of neuroscience, general philosophy of science, and philosophy of biology), contingent upon funding.

An additional fellowship, in Philosophy of Cosmology, is also open at this time. Please see details on that separate call for applications here.

The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is situated in one of Canada’s leading departments of philosophy. It brings together philosophers and scientists to work on problems of social significance. Ongoing research focuses on a variety of philosophical problems arising in contemporary physics, biology, cognitive neuroscience, and medical science.

DESCRIPTION:

Each Postdoctoral Fellowship has a one-year term with the possibility of renewal for a second year, assuming agreement by both parties, and sufficient funding. The Fellow will have an office within the Rotman Institute. She or he will be required to involve themselves fully in the research life of the Institute by conducting research leading to peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations, and by participating in conferences, research groups, reading groups, and outreach activities.

Candidates must have had a PhD in Philosophy conferred within five years of the start of the Fellowship. All PhD requirements must be completed by the starting date of this Postdoctoral Fellowship, typically July 1, 2019. The stipend is $40,500 CAD. Additionally, the Fellow will be provided a research allowance.

Postdoctoral Fellows at the Rotman Institute have gone on to great things. Alida Liberman was awarded the Young Ethicist Prize for best paper by a non-tenured philosopher at the Rocky Mountain Ethics Congress just after her term at the Rotman Institute (August, 2016). Her paper, “Wrongness, Responsibility, and Conscientious Refusal in Health Care.”, was the first applied ethics paper to win the prize in the 9 years that the conference has been going. Rachael Brown (Postdoc in the Institute 2013-2014) won the Sir Karl Popper Prize for 2014, for the best paper appearing in the British Journal for the Philosophy of Science. Kerry McKenzie (2013-14) was hired as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at UC San Diego after her Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Rotman Institute. Learn about all our former fellows on our alumni page.

Review of applications will begin on December 17, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.

Applicants should have fluent oral and written communication skills in English. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. Western University is committed to employment equity and welcomes applications from all qualified women and men, including visible minorities, aboriginal people and persons with disabilities.
