Job description

Governors State University (University Park, IL) is a minority-majority institution inviting applications for a full-time, one-year, non-tenure track Visiting Assistant Professor in Interdisciplinary Ethics, to begin in the Fall 2021 semester. This position is a 12-month contract with a teaching load of 27 credit hours (9 courses) over Fall 2021, Spring 2022, and Summer 2022. There is no required committee work. Depending on expertise, however, the successful candidate may be invited to participate in committees as appropriate and in support of their own professional development.

We seek a teacher-scholar who is committed to enhancing our culture of diversity, equity and inclusion and who will complement existing faculty strengths across our Interdisciplinary Studies and Philosophy programs. A successful candidate is a teacher/scholar with teaching and research expertise in interdisciplinary studies, cross-cultural ethics, healthcare ethics, interdisciplinary ethics, justice studies, and/or professional ethics. The candidate will teach core and elective courses for Interdisciplinary Studies majors and Philosophy minors. This position will also assist in delivering the general education courses, including First Year Seminar (an interdisciplinary humanities course) and/or Mastering College. The ability to teach logic and practical reasoning and/or contribute to our cross-disciplinary programs in Gender & Sexuality Studies, Global Studies, or Religious Studies is also preferred. We seek candidates with outstanding teaching skills, evidence of—or potential for—a distinguished record of scholarship as well as service to the institution, discipline, and/or community. Women, people of color, people with disabilities, and first-generation college graduates are especially encouraged to apply.

Governors State University is the only regional public comprehensive university in Chicago’s south suburban area, serving more than 5,500 students annually. Since its founding in 1969, GSU has offered accessible, high-value educational opportunities to a culturally diverse student body of first-generation students, returning adults, and veterans. With the lowest undergraduate tuition in Illinois, GSU offers accredited programs that have earned high praise from national accrediting agencies. In 2014, GSU accepted its inaugural class of first-year students as it transitioned from an upper-division and graduate institution into a regional comprehensive university with a state-of-the-art general education program. New faculty at GSU must demonstrate enthusiasm and ability to work with students at all levels, from first-year to graduate.
 
Through its strategic planning GSU emphasizes excellence, access, and innovation. Students benefit from the university’s academic quality, range of convenient class times, increasingly numerous hybrid and online offerings, and outstanding educational value. Our innovative lower-division program uses high-impact practices to foster student engagement with ethics, citizenship, and innovative thinking. Every first-year class is taught by a full-time faculty member to ensure that students have a strong foundation for their studies. GSU is a national leader in successful transfer of community college students to universities, and is leading through the Kresge-supported Dual Degree Program, with features such as tuition lock-in at GSU for academically eligible community college students who commit to earn an Associate Degree and attend college full-time. GSU offers a wide variety of master’s programs and several applied doctoral degrees in health, counseling fields, and Interdisciplinary Leadership.
 
GSU’s 750-acre campus encompasses the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park yet is conveniently located within easy reach of Chicago and surrounding communities with a wealth of cultural and natural attractions. The highly diverse region GSU serves has a number of high-performing schools and engaged communities as well as struggling urban, suburban, and rural communities. GSU serves as a public square, working to foster educational opportunities for all populations.

It is the policy of Governors State University, in its role as educator, employer, and purchaser of goods and services, to provide equal opportunity and affirmative action. Discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or veteran status is strictly prohibited.

Job description

Starting in October 2020 the Universität Hamburg, Germany, offers a new graduate program at the intersection of Economics, Philosophy and Political Science. The program is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

We are now offering further fellowships starting 01 March 2021.

The graduate program "Collective Decision-Making" offers very attractive conditions for undertaking doctoral research on a topic of major significance for democratic societies: decision-making by a group of individuals. Despite the significant role of collective decision-making, its study is generally considered a specialist sub-field of economic, social and behavioral sciences and insights into its workings are hardly ever shared across different disciplines. The graduate program aims to work towards unifying a fragmented field and at the same time generating new impetus for research in this area by integrating separate strands of theoretical and empirical research and methods in economics, philosophy and political science.

We are searching for international talents who are interested in pushing the boundaries of knowledge. As a member of the graduate program you will be undertaking research at the Universität Hamburg, one of Germany's top 10 universities. You will be living in one of the most dynamic and international cities in Europe with one of the highest quality of life worldwide. We will offer you:

  • Excellent preparation for undertaking doctoral research in collective decision-making under the supervision of internationally recognized and networked faculty in Economics, Philosophy and Political Science.
  • A competitive salary (0.75 full-time-equivalent) with social security and healthcare contributions for three years.
  • Office space, equipment, research funding and generous travel grants for attending international conferences and workshops and for research visits.

Workload Full time
Vacancies 4
Location Antwerp, Belgium
Start date September 2021
Job description

The main criteria for all these positions are academic excellence as well as compatibility with Professor Nanay’s research and approach.  The postdocs will be part of Bence Nanay’s ERC-funded project as well as his larger research group (funded by ERC, FWO, FP7 CIG and BOF UA) and will work closely with Professor Nanay. So candidates are encouraged to familiarize themselves with his work before applying. The pay is (for US and UK standards) very generous. Postdoctoral researchers and PhD students in Belgium are public employees with very generous benefits. Professor Nanay’s research group has nine postdocs and six PhD students at the moment. 

For all of these positions, background in the empirical sciences is an advantage. Candidates may email nanay@berkeley.edu if they have doubts about whether their profile matches this call. Candidates must have a PhD degree in philosophy (PhD has to be officially awarded before the starting date, which is in September 2020). There are no teaching obligations.

Most (not all) of these positions, unlike some previous ones advertised, is on a very specific topic funded by the recently awarded ERC project on mental imagery and multimodal perception (more info on the project here: https://bencenanay.com/ERC.htm and on the general topic here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0010945217302277#:~:text=Multimodal%20mental%20imagery%20is%20normally,in%20the%20relevant%20sense%20modality. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to work on joint projects with Professor Nanay that are related to this topic. 

Some positions are more open - the only constraint is that the candidate’s research project should be a good match with Professor Nanay’s current interests.

Application type Email
Instructions
In the light of recent findings on implicit bias, the candidates are asked to send their application material fully anonymized: Please send an anonymized cv, an anonymized max 5000 word writing sample and an anonymized max 2–page outline of the fit between the candidate’s research and that of Professor Nanay’s (as well as potential joint projects/papers) to nanay@berkeley.edu and have two letters of reference (which obviously shouldn't be anonymized) sent to the same email address. Please write ‘Postdoc: Mind’ in the subject line. Deadline: December 15, 2020 Starting date of the positions: September 1, 2021 (not really negotiable)

The Global Priorities Institute (GPI) offers Research Fellowship openings for Senior Research Fellows.

You will conduct advanced research in philosophy. At least 50% of your time will be spent on topics directly relevant to the Global Priorities Institute’s research agenda, which you will help to set. The role requires no teaching load and only minor supervision responsibilities, although teaching may be arranged if the fellow would like to do so. The Global Priorities Institute is an interdisciplinary research centre, which aims to develop and promote rigorous, scientific approaches to the question of how appropriately motivated actors can do good more effectively. GPI formally sits within the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford University.

Applicants are required to have a PhD either in philosophy or in a closely related discipline (combined with equivalent experience and expertise in philosophy). Also essential are experience of independent research, outstanding academic ability, and an excellent publication record. Senior Research Fellows must also have the ability to independently plan and manage a research project. In addition, the Fellow must possess specialist knowledge of and a genuine interest in global priorities research.

This is a full-time position at the University of Oxford for a fixed term of four years, with a possibility of extension. Successful candidates may also choose to leave the position before the completion of four years at GPI, for example if they accept a faculty position at another university. Visa support is also available for successful applicants from overseas. We particularly encourage applications from women, black and ethnic minority candidates, as these groups are underrepresented in philosophy in general and at GPI in particular.

Salary will be between £41,526 – £49,553 p.a., depending on experience (Grade 8).

The department of philosophy at Lingnan University, which is one of the strongest in analytic philosophy in Asia, is interested in supporting applications for the prestigious Hong Kong PhD Fellowships/Studentships (HKPFS). The department is especially strong in philosophy of science, philosophical logic, metaphysics and aesthetics, and also has several members with expertise in other areas and fields such as personal identity, ethics, metaethics, epistemology, and Chinese philosophy. In 2020-21, each Fellowship awardee will be provided with a monthly stipend of HK$26,600/around US$3,450 (subject to annual review) and a conference/research-related travel allowance of up to HK$13,300 per year (subject to annual review), for a maximum period of 3 years. Also, the first-year tuition fee of HKPFS awardees will be waived (*HK$42,100 for the 2020-21 academic year); and the same rate of monthly stipend and conference and/or research-related sponsorships will be given to HKPFS awardee in his/her fourth year of study, if applicable. Those with first class undergraduate degrees and/or (predicted) distinctions in their MA/MPhil degrees are especially encouraged to apply. Over the past four years, a good number of applicants we have supported have secured these fellowships. The official deadline for the HKPFS is the 1st of December, but prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the department by email earlier.

You can find out more about Lingnan's philosophy department at http://www.ln.edu.hk/philoso/, and the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship scheme at http://cerg1.ugc.edu.hk/hkpfs/index.html. 

Applicants interested in pursuing postgraduate studies (in this case, PhD and MPhil) at our department may also apply to the University directly from 2 November 2020 to 22 January 2021. These applications will not go through the government funding agency (UGC) but will be evaluated exclusively by our department. Normally, full-time PhD students will be awarded Postgraduate Studentships. In 2020-21, the full monthly stipend is HK$18,090 (amount subject to annual review). We also have a popular and excellent research-based 2-year MPhil Philosophy programme. Applicants may apply for admission to our MPhil programmes directly from 2 November 2020 to 22 January 2021. Full-time MPhil students will also be awarded Postgraduate Studentships. In 2020-21, the full monthly stipend is HK$17,830 (amount subject to annual review).

Applicants are strongly encouraged to include a writing sample in their application.

The department is more likely to accept research proposals in areas where there is existing faculty expertise and interest. Prospective applicants are advised to visit the department website for more information on faculty interests and research areas.

Full-time tenured position at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor
Stephen Jarislowsky Chair in Technology and Human Nature
Department of Philosophy
Faculty of Arts
McGill University

The Faculty of Arts at McGill University invites applications for the position of Stephen Jarislowsky Research Chair in Human Nature and Technology. This is a full-time tenured appointment made at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor in the Department of Philosophy.

We welcome applications from scholars who are making ground-breaking contributions to philosophical thinking about technology and its implications for the human being and for society. We are looking for a scholar with a deep understanding of technology at the cutting edge of cultural change, and a concern for the profound implications of those technologies for human life. We welcome applications from a wide range of research profiles, investigating areas such as (but not limited to): digital democracy; algorithmic bias and justice; transformations in the nature of human intelligence, embodiment, and selfhood; the ethics of big data; human enhancement; technology and gender. The successful applicant will be expected to maintain an outstanding program of research, to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to supervise undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. The normal teaching load will be three courses per year. The Chair will develop some of their own courses, targeting students in various disciplines and Faculties across the University. The Chair will also be an effective and dynamic mentor, and contribute to service in the department and University.

The Chair is a key piece of a planned expansion of the interdisciplinary study of the human, moral, and political significance of technological innovation to be organized and carried out under the framework of the Yan P. Lin Centre for the Study of Freedom and Global Orders in the Ancient and Modern Worlds. This will involve building research and training collaborations within the University to encourage inquiry into the meaning and consequences of technological innovation. It will involve developing a program of events and public outreach on these themes, and building collaborations with those engaged in technological innovation outside the university, particularly with stakeholders in the growing computer technology industry in Montreal.

Accordingly, the University particularly welcomes applications from scholars with a record of institutional leadership, the ability to make substantial contributions to some aspect of this interdisciplinary initiative, and the potential to act as an effective leader.

Nominees for the Chair must: be establishing themselves as outstanding and innovative world-class researchers whose accomplishments promise a major impact in their fields; have emerging or established reputations as international leaders in their fields; propose an original, innovative research program of the highest quality; attract, develop and retain excellent trainees, students and future researchers; and be prepared to establish connections with innovators of new technologies. Training or experience in an appropriate technical field is a significant advantage, as is an established record of institutional leadership and of research, training, and grant collaboration with scholars working in appropriate technical fields.

The position start date is August 1, 2021.

Applications should include:

  • a cover letter;
  • a one-page statement of vision for the Chair;
  • a current curriculum vitae;
  • a research dossier comprising a statement of research interests and a sample of academic writing (article-length);
  • evidence of excellence in teaching and excellent mentoring skills (maximum 10 pages total);
  • and three letters of reference. 

Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2020, and continue until the position is filled. Please apply online at McGill’s Career website.

Inquiries may be sent to the Search Committee Chair, Professor Hasana Sharp, at hasana.sharp@mcgill.ca.

For more information about the Department of Philosophy and the Yan P. Lin Centre, please visit our websites at: https://www.mcgill.ca/philosophy/ and https://www.mcgill.ca/lin-centre/.

McGill University is Canada’s most international university, with an outstanding record of scholarship in many fields. The main campus of the University is located in the centre of Montreal, a vibrant multicultural city in the French-speaking province of Québec. The language of instruction at McGill is English, but knowledge of French is an asset. The Department of Philosophy is diverse in its areas of research excellence and respectful of this diversity. We encourage applications from individuals who can contribute to this pluralism, who engage in conversations across traditional boundaries, and who can complement our existing research strengths.

Commitment to Equity and Diversity 

McGill University is committed to equity and diversity within its community and values academic rigour and excellence. We welcome and encourage applications from racialized persons/visible minorities, women, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, as well as from all qualified candidates with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities.

At McGill, research that reflects diverse intellectual traditions, methodologies, and modes of dissemination and translation is valued and encouraged. Candidates are invited to demonstrate their research impact both within and across academic disciplines and in other sectors, such as government, communities, or industry. 

McGill further recognizes and fairly considers the impact of leaves (e.g., family care or health-related) that may contribute to career interruptions or slowdowns. Candidates are encouraged to signal any leave that affected productivity, or that may have had an effect on their career path. This information will be considered to ensure the equitable assessment of the candidate’s record. 

McGill implements an employment equity program and encourages members of designated equity groups to self-identify. It further seeks to ensure the equitable treatment and full inclusion of persons with disabilities by striving for the implementation of universal design principles transversally, across all facets of the University community, and through accommodation policies and procedures. Persons with disabilities who anticipate needing accommodations for any part of the application process may contact, in confidence, this email or phone at 514-398-2477.

Location Gothenburg, Västra Götaland, Sweden
Job description

Doctoral position in Theoretical Philosophy

The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 49 000 students and 6 400 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.

The Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science (FLoV) at the Faculty of Humanities has around 100 employees and a teaching volume of about 350 full-year students. It hosts several major international research projects, and educates philosophers, linguists, language technologists, theorists of science, historians of philosophy, philologists and teachers in philosophy on undergraduate, advanced, and graduate levels.

Like most Swedish philosophy Departments, we distinguish between practical and theoretical philosophy, with courses taught separately and given separate degrees. Theoretical philosophy is usually taken to comprise at least the following subjects: epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind. In Gothenburg, most of these areas are represented in the research we do. To learn more about our subject, its researchers, and our research, please visit our website at here.

Subject area

Theoretical philosophy

Specific subject description

Theoretical Philosophy examines the nature of mind and (external) reality (metaphysics and the philosophy of mind), our knowledge of that reality (epistemology), as well as different ways of representing, and reasoning with, that knowledge in language and thought (philosophy of language and logic). Research within Theoretical Philosophy at the University of Gothenburg covers more or less all of these areas.  For more information about our subject, supervisor-capacity, etc., please visit our webpage here, or contact professor Anna-Sofia Maurin (contact details, below). Please note that the research done at this Department is in analytical philosophy, sometimes with a strong emphasis on historical perspectives.

Job assignments

The successful candidate’s main responsibilities will be to write a doctoral dissertation, and to complete obligatory course work. He or she may also undertake a limited amount of teaching, administration, or research not directly connected to her or his dissertation topic. Such duties extend the position accordingly.

The successful candidate is expected to spend his or her time primarily in Gothenburg and to regularly participate in departmental activities, especially the weekly research seminar in theoretical philosophy.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the position, the applicant must meet both general and specific entry requirements. The general entry requirements for third-cycle (doctoral) programs are:

  1. a second-cycle (advanced level) qualification/degree, or
  2. at least 240 higher education (HE) credits for courses of which at least 60 HE credits are awarded in the second-cycle, or
  3. equivalent training either in Sweden or abroad.

Admission to the third-cycle program in Theoretical Philosophy also requires:

  1. 30 higher education credits in Theoretical Philosophy as a second-cycle subject, at least 15 of which must be from a degree project or equivalent knowledge, 
  2. the type(s) of language skills (Swedish or English) needed to be able to benefit from compulsory parts of the course and to be able to actively participate in seminars and similar activities.

Location Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Start date Between 1 October 2020 and 1 March 2021.
Job description

Cross-appointed in Dalhousie’s Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and its Department of Philosophy, successful candidates will investigate applications of the theory of evolution (broadly construed) and develop new understandings of mutualisms, multi-species symbioses and communities. We are specifically interested in extensions of Darwinian approaches that embrace persistence, niche construction, Hull’s replicator/interactor framework, evolutionary individuality, process ontology, lineage concepts and cooperation, from holobionts to biogeochemical cycles and the biosphere. This work will be supported by funds made available through the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative. Supervision will be by W. Ford Doolittle (ford@dal.ca), who is PI on this project, and fellows will interact with an existing team comprising two philosophers, a population biologist, and a computational modeler. One goal would be a deeper evolutionary understanding of the rapidly accumulating databases resulting from marine microbial metagenomic research, and familiarity with methods for analyzing and modeling such data would be an asset, but not a requirement.

A PhD in Philosophy or the History and Philosophy of Science or Science and Technology Studies with a focus on evolutionary biology is essential and some background in molecular biology, genetics or environmental genomics is desirable. While the fellows will ultimately be expected to move to Nova Scotia, there is the possibility that the current global public health crisis makes moving to Canada effectively impossible until after the start of employment, which can be any time during the five-months beginning 1 October, 2020. Canadians and non-Canadians will be considered. Consideration of candidates will begin on 21 September 2020, and the positions will remain open until filled.

Dalhousie University is committed to fostering a collegial culture grounded in diversity and inclusiveness. The university encourages applications from Indigenous persons, persons with a disability, racially visible persons, women, persons of a minority sexual orientation and/or gender identity, and all candidates who would contribute to the diversity of our community.

Hong Kong Postdoctoral Fellowship (Fixed term)
Job category Postdoc or similar / Fixed term
AOS Open
AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
Location Tuen Mun, Hong Kong
Start date Flexible; between March and December 2021
Job description

We are looking for excellent philosophers to nominate for a Hong Kong Research Grants Council Postdoctoral Fellowship competition. The fellowships last for 36 months, with an initial annual salary of 405,330 HKD (~ 52,000 USD) and research and travel allowance of 12,880 HKD (plus the opportunity to apply for additional research funds if desired). The posts are research based with no or minimal teaching duties (depending on the specific rank of the hire, no more than 1 or 2 courses per academic year by mutual agreement).

While nomination is no guarantee of a fellowship, nominated candidates have a strong chance in the competition: last year Lingnan Philosophy had two successful applications, and the overall success rate for all nominated candidates is over 50%. More information can be found here: https://www.ugc.edu.hk/eng/rgc/funding_opport/pdfs/index.html

Eligible candidates must either (a) have obtained / been conferred a PhD degree or an equivalent qualification on or after 1 January 2017, or (b) will complete the requirement of a PhD degree or an equivalent qualification by 31 August 2021. The latter condition is strict, so it is essential that candidates without a PhD currently in hand are able to confirm that they will have completed all of the requirements for their degree (including having defended their dissertation / thesis) by the indicated date.

Candidates working in any area of philosophy are welcome to apply. Because of the way the process works, candidates with interests aligned with existing members of the department are more likely to be successful. A list of staff members and their interests can be found on our webpage: https://www.ln.edu.hk/philoso/?page_id=9.

Applicants should (a) email a CV and writing sample to Daniel Waxman (danielwaxman@ln.edu.hk) with subject line "Postdoctoral Fellowship Application", and (b) arrange to have two letters of reference sent to the same email address. Shortlisted candidates will additionally be asked to submit a research proposal; applicants who have such a document already prepared are welcome to submit it with their initial application. NB no cover letter is required. The deadline for applications is 21 September 2020 (with some flexibility for letters of reference arriving later). Interviews will be conducted soon afterwards, with nominations to be decided by 5 October 2020 and final fellowship results announced in March 2021.

Please feel free to email Daniel Waxman (danielwaxman@ln.edu.hk) with any questions or for further information.

About Philosophy at Lingnan: The Department of Philosophy at Lingnan University is one of the best in Asia. It has particular research strengths in aesthetics, ethics, philosophy of science, Chinese philosophy, logic and philosophy of mathematics, and metaphysics.

ACLS Mission and Overview 

Formed a century ago, the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is a nonprofit federation of 75 scholarly organizations.  As the leading representative of American scholarship in the humanities and related social sciences, ACLS holds a core belief that knowledge is a public good. As such, ACLS strives to promote the circulation of humanistic knowledge throughout society. In addition to stewarding and representing its member organizations, ACLS employs its $146 million endowment and $38 million annual operating budget to support scholarship in the humanities and social sciences and to advocate for its central role in the twenty-first century.

This year, ACLS issued its first-ever strategic plan, which outlines four strategic priorities: encouraging scholars and scholarship to be responsive to diverse audiences; strengthening relationships among our core constituencies within the academy and our partners beyond the academy; lifting the public profile of humanistic knowledge; and empowering staff and partners to work responsibly and inclusively.

Overview of Department

The US Programs team runs an evolving set of programs that respond to issues in scholarship and higher education by supporting humanities scholars at different career stages and at a variety of higher education institutions.

Its curriculum educates students in Asian and Western intellectual traditions as well as current scientific thought. A student body of 1000 undergraduates from over 60 countries engages with more than 100 outstanding faculty from around the world through small classes and hands-on research. Students and faculty also have access to the wider resources of two world-leading research universities.

The College invites applications for an endowed chair in Comparative Religious Studies, at the rank of tenured Professor.

Applicants should have a relevant PhD and demonstrate an outstanding track record for their career stage. A clear ability and passion for undergraduate education is essential.

Additional details about the position:

The Yap Kim Hao Chair of Comparative Religious Studies is an important post from which to develop the comparative study of religion in Singapore and South-East Asia. The vision of the chair, inspired by Rev. Yap Kim Hao, is one of developing comparative religious studies within the academic purview of Yale-NUS College while promoting intellectual values of pluralism, diversity, tolerance, and the search for truth. The person appointed to this chair will have expertise in one or more religious traditions, function within contemporary discourses of Religious Studies and the Social Sciences about the nature of comparative religion, articulate a vision for the field into the future, and be committed to exploring the relevance of religion in contemporary society.

The person appointed will be expected to have an extremely strong record of research and academic publications with a clear trajectory and research program into the future.

The person appointed to this position will be expected to:

  • contribute to the educational vision of Yale-NUS College, by working equally between the Common Curriculum (which includes a component of Historical Immersion) and any one or more of the College majors;
  • conduct research in comparative religious studies, with strong interest in the co-existence of religions in the contemporary world, whether specific to South-East Asia or globally;
  • deploy expertise in the primary languages and texts of the religion that has been the main focus of his or her research along with the ability to synthesize knowledge from a wide range of disciplines, and be able to operate at both the level of textual research or fieldwork and the trans-civilizational level of comparative studies;
  • be prepared to work with religious communities in Singapore to develop the cultural and social relevance of comparative religious studies both in the local and the wider context;
  • be responsible to the Director of Humanities in respect of teaching allocation;
  • be committed to teaching 4 courses annually (singly or as part of a team), spread over two semesters. 

The appointee will be expected to begin duties in time for the start of the 2021-2022 academic year (i.e. from 1 July 2021). 

Faculty receive internationally competitive salaries and start-up grants as well as a yearly travel and research allowance. They are able to access additional funding from Yale-NUS, the National University of Singapore, and Singapore’s Ministry of Education. Most faculty qualify for highly subsidized faculty housing. Yale-NUS College is located in Singapore, a multicultural city of six million at the heart of a vibrant region.

2021-22 Mahindra Humanities Center Postdoctoral Fellowship (Fixed term)
Job category Postdoc or similar / Fixed term
AOS Open
AOC Migration and the Humanities
Workload Full time
Vacancies 6
Location Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States
Start date September 2021
Job description

The Mahindra Humanities Center invites applications for one-year postdoctoral fellowships in connection with the Center’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation seminar on the topic of migration and the humanities.

Migration plays as critical a role in the moral imagination of the humanities as it does in shaping the activist vision of humanitarianism and human rights. Too often, the humanities are summoned merely as witnesses whose primary aesthetic and moral values lie in their illustrative powers of empathy and evocation. Yet the intellectual formation of the humanities—their very conception of the nature of meaning, knowledge, and morals—is deeply resonant with the displacement of values and the revision of norms that shape narratives of migrant lives.

We welcome applications from scholars in all fields whose work innovatively engages with migration and the humanities. In addition to pursuing their own research projects, fellows will be core participants in the bi-weekly seminar meetings for both academic terms of the fellowship. Other participants will include faculty and graduate students from Harvard and other universities in the region, and occasional visiting speakers.

Fellows will receive stipends of $65,000, medical insurance, additional research support of $2,500, and (for those not already in residence in Greater Boston) $1,500 in moving expenses. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Harvard for the term of the fellowship.

Applicants for 2021-22 fellowships must have received a doctorate or terminal degree in or after May 2018. Applicants without a doctorate or terminal degree must demonstrate that they have completed all requirements for a terminal degree (i.e. dissertation defense) by August 1, 2021. International scholars outside the United States are appointed under either the J-1 visa (Research Scholar status) or F-1 OPT (Optional Practical Training), depending on their circumstances. If awarded a fellowship, the term of appointment is September 1, 2021-August 31, 2022. The Mahindra Center reserves the right to cancel awards if the recipient is unable to meet these conditions of completion and visa status. 

The application deadline for applicants to submit their materials is November 6, 2020. The deadline for receipt of letters of recommendation is November 20, 2020.

In addition to biographical and professional information, applicants are asked to submit:


1. A curriculum vitae.

2. A statement of the research project (1,000-3,000 words) that provides a detailed description of what the applicant proposes to do during the fellowship year.

3. One chapter- or article-length writing sample (no longer than 40 pages).

4. Names and contact information of three referees, who will be asked by a system-generated email to upload a letter of recommendation once the candidate’s application has been submitted. Three letters of recommendation are required, and the application is considered complete only when three letters have been received. Recommendations may be those included in the applicant’s placement dossier, but they must specifically address the proposed research project. Letters should be uploaded to the electronic application. The deadline for receipt of letters is November 20, 2020.

Dean of the Division of Arts & Humanities in the College of Letters and Science (Tenured, continuing or permanent)
Job category Senior faculty / Tenured, continuing or permanent
AOS Open
AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
Location Berkeley, California, United States
Job description

The University of California, Berkeley, seeks a collaborative leader, accomplished scholar, and persuasive advocate for the arts and humanities to serve as the next Dean of the Arts & Humanities Division in the College of Letters & Science.

UC Berkeley is internationally renowned for its comprehensive research excellence and for the opportunities it affords students of all backgrounds.  The Berkeley campus is home to more than 31,000 undergraduates and 11,000 graduate students.  It has over 1,500 ladder-rank faculty across 14 schools and colleges.  Located near San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the campus sits at the epicenter of imagination and invention.

Faculty and students in the Arts & Humanities Division of the College of Letters & Science explore the human experience across an exceptionally broad range of subjects.  With 31 undergraduate majors and 22 graduate programs in 19 departments, the Division offers students opportunities to study and make art; learn about a wide range of civilizations, languages, literatures, and cultures; and explore ideas in philosophy, rhetoric, religion, and history.  The Division prides itself on the way it integrates the practice and study of the arts, and it offers the broadest range of languages taught at any university in the country.

UC Berkeley is ranked among the top four universities in the world for its programs in the arts and humanities, which prepare students for citizenship in a rapidly changing world and for leadership in fields that value skillful communication, critical and creative thinking, and cross-cultural knowledge.  More fundamentally, the Division brings faculty and students together to pursue questions about how human beings can lead meaningful lives. In annual surveys of student satisfaction, the programs in the Division are consistently rated the best at Berkeley.

Berkeley seeks a Dean committed to supporting the Division’s array of exceptional departments, disciplines, and academic cultures.  The next Dean will work with faculty to articulate a vision for the contributions the Division will make to Berkeley’s fulfillment of its public mission. The Dean will advocate persuasively for the Division’s programs both within and beyond the campus community. The Dean will manage resources thoughtfully and will work with campus partners, alumni, donors, and foundations to increase philanthropic support for the Division’s faculty, programs, and students.  The Dean will be committed to building a community whose members advance equity, diversity, and inclusion.  As the leader of a Division within the College of Letters & Science — the largest by far of the campus’s colleges — the new Dean will have the opportunity to collaborate on college-wide initiatives with Deans of the Divisions of biological sciences, mathematical and physical sciences, social sciences, and undergraduate studies.

The successful candidate must have an earned terminal degree by the time of application in a discipline within the arts or humanities and will have a record of scholarship or creative achievement that merits a tenured appointment at Berkeley with the rank of full professor.  The Dean will have experience as an academic leader, for example, as a department chair, institute director, or academic administrator, and will have participated in the processes of faculty appointment and promotion.  The Dean will have a record of advancing institutional equity, diversity, and inclusion.  The Dean will have experience with alumni and donor relations or have clear potential for strength in those areas. The successful candidate will understand the distinctive character and mission of a public university and will have a record of fruitful collaborative efforts to build consensus.

A full leadership profile is available at www.wittkieffer.com. Applicants must submit a CV, preferably with a letter of interest, via WittKieffer’s candidate portal or by email. Applicants must also apply directly to UC Berkeley at https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/JPF02636. For fullest consideration, materials should be received by August 31, 2020. Confidential nominations, inquiries and applications can be directed to Suzanne Teer, Philip Tang, and Alejandra Gillette-Teran at BerkeleyArtsandHumanities@wittkieffer.com.

The University of California, Berkeley, is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of diversity. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.

The University has a deep institutional commitment to public service and engagement with the world, as indicated by the motto Pro Humanitate (for humanity), which encourages students to develop the qualities of human character needed to serve humanity. With the aim to educate the whole person, the University has established an innovative Program for Leadership and Character that plans creative, liberal arts-based programming to help students develop the virtues of character needed to lead in an increasingly complex world. The Program is based on cutting-edge academic research on leadership and character, including research conducted by Wake Forest faculty in philosophy and psychology who are leading experts on the study of character. The program has established a partnership with the Oxford Character Project and has been profiled as a model for how universities can educate character.
