Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
Location Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Job description
  • Full-time, Research appointment, five-year fixed-term
  • Based at ACU’s Melbourne Campus

Australian Catholic University’s (ACU) Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry (IRCI) seeks candidates of outstanding potential and demonstrated achievement with expertise in Autonomy, broadly conceived, to contribute to the five-year project, Redeeming Autonomy: Vulnerability and Rationality.

Successful applicants will join a vibrant research environment and work collegially and collaboratively to build their own research profile of high-quality publications, and contribute to team projects within their areas of specialisation and across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Research Fellows and Senior Research Fellows have a primary focus on research, but some teaching, especially of graduate students may be part of the role.

ACU’s IRCIis a research Institute which promotes collaborative research on religion and critical thought from multiple disciplinary perspectives, including philosophy, theology, history, and literature. It explores the inter-relationships between philosophy, religion and their cultural contexts, and contributes to contemporary theological, philosophical, social, and political debates.

The Redeeming Autonomy project seeks to make a strategic intervention in the academic and cultural debate around the concept of ‘autonomy’. The project has two principle dimensions, which it seeks to bring into a fruitful relationship: the conceptual and historical; and the contextual and applied. Applications are invited from candidates whose research addresses an aspect of one, or both, of these strands of the project.

ACU is an inclusive community that welcomes students and staff of all faiths and no faith. It enrols more than 35,000 students across seven campuses – Adelaide, Ballarat, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, North Sydney and Strathfield (Sydney). As valued members of our community, all staff members are expected to have an understanding of ACU’s mission and values and to demonstrate an active contribution to them.

Remuneration: Research Fellow salary starts at $98,407 + 17% employer superannuation contribution. Senior Research Fellow starts at $123,300 + 17% employer superannuation contribution. In addition, the roles attract a research allowance.

The DHPB project aims to expand the use of the tools of digital humanities – particularly textual analysis – to study the history and philosophy of the life sciences.

Basic Information of PKU and the Department

The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Peking University was founded in 1912, which marks the beginning of philosophy as an academic discipline in modern China. In 1995, the first-ever faculty of religious studies in China was launched at this same institution, and is administered together with the faculty of philosophy.

The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies is keen to maintain its balance in the growth of all of its sub-disciplines. It can claim abundant achievements in Chinese philosophy, Western philosophy, Marxist philosophy, religious studies, ethics, aesthetics, logic, philosophy of science, etc.. It also promotes the interdisciplinary dialogue between philosophy and other fields, with more than 10 research bodies affiliated, such as the newly established Center for Philosophy and the Future of Humanity, as well as the Peking University Berggruen Institute Research Center. The undergraduate program, while focusing on primary resources and philosophical theories, aims to inspire students to think independently within a broad horizon of the humanities. The Department has collaborated with other institutions of Peking University to establish a number of novel programs such as Philosophy, Politics and Economics, Classical Philology, Logos and Polis. The graduate program emphasizes training in critical thinking, the close reading of philosophical texts, and various research perspectives and methodologies. It subscribes to an international standard within the profession to prepare local young scholars to carry out independent research and to have their voices heard on the global stage.

The Department has been ranked No.1 in all the past national subject (in philosophy) evaluations organized by the Ministry of Education of China. It has been ranked top 50 in the QS World University Ranking by the subject of philosophy in the past years. In 2018, the Department also hosted the 24th World Congress of Philosophy in Beijing with more than 5000 participants.

 deadline for submission: 30.01.2019

start of recruitment :as soon as possible

reference number:31944

applications to:bewerbungen@uni-kassel.de

The German federal state of Hessen, the city of Kassel, the documenta and Fridericianum Museum gGmbh and the University of Kassel have agreed to pursue the development of a documenta Institute in Kassel, Germany, where the world art exhibition is staged every five years. The aim of this undertaking is to establish an independent scholarly institution of international renown that takes the history of the documenta and its ongoing present day continuation as the occasion and starting point for transdisciplinary research initiatives. Under the thematic frame of the "exhibition", understood as a means by which societies encounter and address themselves, the relationships between art and society, art and knowledge as well as between art and various economies shall be analysed and explored. The inventories of the documenta archiv will serve as an important foundation for the work of the documenta Institute and will be fully integrated into the new Institute. This facility should become a leading research institute and cultural meeting place for an international public as well as for citizens of the region in the periods between documenta exhibitions.

To realise this concept, a call for applicants is being made for three professorships which will be established in addition to the documenta Professorship that already exists at the Kunsthochschule Kassel. These three positions will be located in the Faculty of the Humanities, the Faculty of Social Sciences, and the Faculty of Architecture, Urban Planning, Landscape Planning. For all of the professorships a further membership in the Kunsthochschule Kassel and involvement in the planned interdisciplinary Centre for Exhibition Studies at the University of Kassel is expected. These positions will also involve teaching responsibilities in the degree programmes of the respective faculties, work in the area of structured supervision of doctoral candidates, and involvement in university self-government. Experience in securing third-party grant funding is highly desirable.

 Persons from all academic disciplines with an international reputation resulting from outstanding research work as well as a readiness for transdisciplinary cooperation are being sought for these positions.  Relevant qualifications in addition to a doctoral degree and university teaching experience are post-doctoral thesis work or additional scholarly activities in the areas cited below in the respective position descriptions. Applicants will be expected to present a concept for innovative research and teaching in connection with the planned documenta Institute.

 The professorship involves research and teaching on the connections between contemporary art and society in the context of exhibitions. The main focus are questions of the public discourse on contemporary art, the scholarly reflection on art, the linguistic and communicative approaches to art, the aesthetic (literary, filmic, visual, etc.) engagement with art, as well the societal expectations with regard to contemporary art and the reception of art in the public sphere.  In addition, questions concerning the mediation of art in the public sphere (public programmes, art education, exhibition catalogues, art criticism, etc.) are subjects of research and teaching for this professorship. Particular attention is to be directed to perspectives pertaining to the humanities, to cultural studies and to art historical studies.

 Prof. Dr. Andreas Gardt, Department of German (Tel.: +49 (0)561/804-3327; gardt@uni-kassel.de) as well as Prof. Dr. Nora Sternfeld, Kunsthochschule Kassel (Tel.: +49 (0)151/684 04 568; nora.sternfeld@uni-kassel.de) are available to answer any questions that applicants for this position may have.

The employment and performance requirements apply pursuant to §§ 61, 62, 64 of the Higher Education Act of Hessen.

The Universität Kassel is highly interested in its employees’ professional satisfaction.

Bewerbungen an: bewerbungen@uni-kassel.de

Land Hessen, Stadt Kassel, documenta und Museum Fridericianum gGmbH und Universität Kassel haben sich auf den Aufbau eines documenta Instituts am Ort der alle fünf Jahre stattfindenden Weltkunstausstellung verständigt. Ziel ist es, eine unabhängige wissenschaftliche Einrichtung mit internationaler Sichtbarkeit zu etablieren, die die Geschichte und jeweils neue Gegenwart der documenta zum Anlass und Ausgangspunkt für transdisziplinäre Forschungsvorhaben nimmt. Unter der thematischen Klammer der „Ausstellung“ als einer Form der Selbstthematisierung von Gesellschaft sollen die Beziehungen zwischen Kunst und Gesellschaft, Kunst und Wissen sowie Kunst und Ökonomie analytisch erschlossen werden. Das documenta Institut basiert maßgeblich auf den Beständen des documenta archivs und integriert diese vollumfänglich. Es soll zu einem führenden Forschungsinstitut und kulturellen Begegnungsort zwischen den documenta Ausstellungen für ein internationales Publikum sowie für die Bürgerinnen und Bürger der Region werden.

Um diese inhaltliche Konzeption zu ermöglichen, werden neben einer bereits bestehenden, in der Kunsthochschule angesiedelten documenta Professur drei Professuren in den Fachbereichen Geistes- und Kulturwissenschaften, Gesellschaftswissenschaften und Architektur, Stadtplanung, Landschaftsplanung ausgeschrieben. Für alle Professuren wird eine Zweitmitgliedschaft in der Kunsthochschule und eine Mitwirkung im geplanten fachbereichsübergreifenden Zentrum für Ausstellungsstudien der Universität Kassel erwartet. Zu den Dienstaufgaben gehören weiterhin die Wahrnehmung von Lehraufgaben in den Studiengängen des jeweiligen Fachbereichs und der Kunsthochschule, die Mitarbeit im Bereich der strukturierten Doktorandenausbildung und die Mitwirkung in der akademischen Selbstverwaltung. Erfahrungen in der Einwerbung von Drittmitteln sind sehr erwünscht.

Gesucht werden Personen aus allen akademischen Disziplinen mit internationaler Sichtbarkeit aufgrund herausragender Forschungsbeiträge sowie mit der Bereitschaft zu transdisziplinärer Forschungskooperation. Einstellungsvoraussetzungen sind neben der Promotion und universitärer Lehrerfahrung eine Habilitation oder zusätzliche wissenschaftliche Leistungen in den unten genannten Schwerpunkten der jeweiligen Ausschreibung. Von den Bewerberinnen und Bewerbern wird ein Konzept für innovative Forschung und Lehre mit Bezug zum geplanten documenta Institut erwartet.

Die Professur forscht und lehrt zu den Bezügen zwischen zeitgenössischer Kunst und Gesellschaft im Kontext von Ausstellungen. Im Vordergrund stehen Fragen der öffentlichen diskursiven, wissenschaftlich-reflexiven, sprachlich-kommunikativen und ästhetischen (literarischen, filmischen, visuellen usw.) Auseinandersetzung mit zeitgenössischer Kunst, der gesellschaftlichen Erwartungen an zeitgenössische Kunst sowie ihrer Rezeption. Auch Fragen der Vermittlung von Kunst in die gesellschaftliche Öffentlichkeit (Öffentliche Programme, Kunstvermittlung, Ausstellungskataloge, Kunstkritik usw.) sind Gegenstand von Forschung und Lehre der Professur. Die geistes-, kultur- und kunstwissenschaftliche Perspektive findet besondere Beachtung.

Für Rückfragen stehen Ihnen Prof. Dr. Andreas Gardt, Institut für Germanistik (Tel.: 0561/804-3327; gardt@uni-kassel.de) sowie Prof. Dr. Nora Sternfeld, Kunsthochschule Kassel (Tel.: 0151/684 04 568; nora.sternfeld@uni-kassel.de) zur Verfügung.

Es gelten die Einstellungsvoraussetzungen und die Leistungsanforderungen gemäß §§ 61, 62, 64 des Hessischen Hochschulgesetzes.

Die Universität Kassel ist in hohem Maße an der beruflichen Zufriedenheit ihrer Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter interessiert. Sie fördert daher mit ihrem Dual Career Service und ihrem Family Welcome Service die Vereinbarkeit von Partnerschaft und Familie mit der beruflichen Entwicklung. Es gehört zu den strategischen Zielen der Universität Kassel, den Anteil von Frauen in Forschung und Lehre deutlich zu steigern. Bewerbungen von Frauen sind deshalb besonders erwünscht. Schwerbehinderte Bewerber/-innen erhalten bei gleicher Eignung und Befähigung den Vorzug. Bewerbungen mit Lebenslauf, Zeugnissen, Urkunden, Liste der wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten, drei ausgewählten Publikationen, einem Verzeichnis der Lehrveranstaltungen und einem Lehr- und Forschungskonzept sind unter Angabe der Kennziffer gern auch in elektronischer Form an den Präsidenten der Universität Kassel, 34109 Kassel bzw. bewerbungen@uni-kassel.de, zu richten

Focusing on important works of philosophy, religion, literature, painting, and film drawn largely, but not exclusively, from the Western tradition, the SLE curriculum places particular emphasis on artists and intellectuals who brought new ways of thinking and new ways of creating into the world, often overthrowing prior traditions in the process. Students in the program draw connections between issues raised in the course and contemporary concerns about social justice, inequality, and identity politics - these connections and the resulting discussions about the legacy of the Western tradition, constitute a core aspect of the course and of the residential learning experience.

Instruction includes the following: three lectures each week, usually by Stanford faculty members; two weekly seminar meetings; ad hoc meetings between first year students and assigned upperclassmen who serve as their writing tutors; a weekly film or special event; and a considerable amount of informal interaction in the SLE dormitory environment.

The SLE Lecturer is a full-time position that involves leading the two weekly seminars (with the same group of about fifteen students in both), attending all of the lectures, commenting on up to three papers each term (both in writing and in one-to-one meetings with the students) , and assuming some administrative tasks. They are also expected to have general participation in the life of the program and the residence in which the program is embedded (although SLE Lecturers do not live in the residence, they are fully participating members of the residential experience). A SLE Lecturer may be called upon to deliver at least one lecture to the class. They work closely as a team with the Director of the Program (a Stanford faculty member), the upper-class tutors assigned to their seminars, and partly with participating Stanford faculty.

Qualifications

Candidates should have a Ph.D. (filed no later than June 30, 2019), a strong record of humanities scholarship and evidence of teaching excellence.

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?

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.

Job description

The Digital Life Initiative (DLI) is accepting applications for postdoctoral fellows whose work aligns with DLI’s focus on societal perspectives on digital technologies, focusing on key ethical and political issues, such as privacy, accountability, access, security, and fairness. We welcome applicants from a range of disciplines including computer and information sciences, law, philosophy, data science, media studies, public policy, and social science whose work is concerned with ethics, politics, and quality of life.

Fellows will work with Professor Helen Nissenbaum, Director of the Digital Life Initiative. Depending on areas of specialization and mutual interest, fellows will have opportunities to collaborate with other DLI Affiliated Faculty (including Deborah Estrin, James Grimmelmann, Tom Ristenpart, and Vitaly Shmatikov) and with researchers at other U.S. and international research institutions. This is a one-year position with possibility of renewal.

Qualifications

Eligible candidates will have received their PhD within the past three years. We welcome applications from graduating PhD students and junior faculty seeking postdoctoral positions. Law or MD graduates or ABDs with strong backgrounds or work experience in related fields are also eligible to apply.

Fellows are expected to pursue original research in their respective areas and participate in their research community within Cornell Tech. We welcome both solo and collaborative projects, which can be guided by ongoing DLI projects.

Fellows are expected to reside in the New York City area and participate actively in the intellectual life of Cornell Tech and the Digital Life Initiative. In addition, Fellows may enhance DLI activities in various ways, e.g., by arranging or helping to arrange workshops, conferences, or seminars. Details of such engagement are fluid and depend on Fellows’ interests and institutional need.

About the Digital Life Initiative

Embedded within the progressive teaching mission of Cornell Tech on Roosevelt Island in New York City, the Digital Life Initiative was launched in 2017 to analyze the societal tensions arising from existing and emergent digital technologies.

The School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers University is pleased to announce the availability of a postdoctoral fellowship in philosophy of religion, specifically to engage the bearing of empirical sciences on topics in philosophy of religion. For example, fellows may be engaged in researching one or more of the following: what contemporary psychology implies about the taxonomy of religious experiences, what research in cognitive science of religion suggests about the origins of religious experiences, what force fine-tuning arguments have under various assumptions about God's freedom or constraints in creation, or what implications the theory of relativity has for the temporality/timelessness of God. This fellowship is not intended to support research in political or social philosophy, philosophy of law, or applied ethics (where applied ethics includes but is not limited to bioethics, medical ethics, ethics of technology use, and business ethics).

Fellows will be appointed in the Department of Philosophy in association with Rutgers Center for the Philosophy of Religion (RCPR). The primary responsibility of a Fellow will be to conduct research on their project.  Fellows will also be responsible for teaching one course per year. These courses will focus on topics in science-engaged philosophy of religion. In addition, fellows will be expected to work with the RCPR leadership to organize a two-day workshop in science-engaged philosophy of religion in late spring, 2020. They will also be expected to lead the RCPR reading group through a semester of study on topics in science-engaged philosophy of religion. Finally, they will generally be expected to participate in conferences, workshops, and seminars sponsored by the RCPR. Fellows will be appointed for two years. Appointments will be effective September 1, 2019. Fellows will receive a stipend of $62,000 annually; they will also receive Rutgers University health benefits. Fellows must have earned a Ph.D. in philosophy between October, 2014 and June 2019. 

Applications consisting of a CV, a research proposal, a writing sample, and three references should be submitted electronically at https://jobs.rutgers.edu/postings/80103.

Job description

The Institute for Freedom and Community (IFC) and the Philosophy Department at St. Olaf College invite applications for a two-year Post Doctoral Fellowship, beginning on August 15, 2019 and concluding on August 14, 2021. In this first run of the fellows program the Fellow will be housed within the Philosophy Department and will contribute jointly to the Philosophy Department and to the core activities of the IFC.  Post-Doctoral Fellows will teach 3 courses per year, pursue their own scholarly research, participate in various IFC-sponsored events on campus, and contribute through their teaching and scholarly activities to intellectual diversity and substantial student engagement with American public affairs on campus. 

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.

The Department of Health Policy and Administration (HPA) and the Rock Ethics Institute (REI) at The Pennsylvania State University invite applicants for a tenured faculty position at the Associate or Full Professor level. 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.

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. Our goal is to empower a broadly diverse generation to become leaders and scholars who promote human health, development and quality of life throughout the lifespan. Successful applicants will join a growing, multidisciplinary faculty and will be expected to conduct research, teach, and advise students in doctoral, master's, and/or bachelor's degree programs. Compensation is competitive as are non-salary elements of the compensation package, and the position itself is a fully funded, “hard-money” position, with support from both HPA and the REI. Penn State has excellent support services available to faculty members and the College of Health and Human Development and the College of Liberal Arts are committed to providing the necessary resources critical to helping the successful candidate further his or her research prominence. The Department of Health Policy and Administration (http://www.hhdev.psu.edu/hpa/hpa-highlights) is an academic unit of the College of Health and Human Development. HPA offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, residential and online Master of Health Administration (M.H.A.) degrees, a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Health Policy and Administration, and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree.

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.

Area of Specialization (AOS): Ethics and philosophy of computing. Area of Competence (AOC): Ethical theory.

The teaching load averages 12 units per quarter with correspondingly reasonable research/scholarship and service expectations and with a significant reduction in course load in the first one to two years to help establish an active program of research and professional development. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Initial appointment is for two years, subject to renewal. 

Required Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in philosophy. Candidates nearing completion of the doctorate (ABD) may be considered, but must provide proof that the doctorate is complete prior to the start of appointment. 
  • Demonstrated qualifications in computer-related ethics. Please include a sample syllabus. 
  • Demonstrated effectiveness in college or university-level teaching and evidence of scholarly and/or creative achievement. 
  • Ability to teach additional courses in theoretical ethics and other areas of philosophy. 

Preferred Qualifications: 

  • Experience with external grant writing and administration. 
  • Experience with collaborative projects. 
  • Experience in developing new, innovative courses. 
  • Experience in computer science. 


TO APPLY: Interested applicants should complete the online faculty application at http://WWW.CALPOLYJOBS.ORG and submit it to Requisition #105015. Please upload the following required materials as part of the electronic application: 1) cover letter; 2) current vitae; 3) transcript copy; 4) a Statement of Diversity and Inclusion describing past experience and contributions to diversity and inclusion efforts, and a description of how you will demonstrate a commitment in these areas in teaching, research, and/or service at Cal Poly (upload under Other); 5) teaching portfolio and evidence of teaching effectiveness including a) course syllabi and b) student evaluations; and an example(s) of 6) scholarship or creative work. In the cover letter, the applicant should also address the feasibility of conducting a research program within the context of a primarily teaching-oriented undergraduate program. Applicants must also be prepared to provide names and email addresses for a minimum of three professional references when completing the online application. Cal Poly will directly solicit letters from the individuals listed by applicants. A transcript copy may be attached to the application or sent to the address listed for Requisition #105015.

DEPARTMENT NAME

School of Arts & Sciences (Jean King)

DIVISION NAME

Worcester Polytechnic Institute - WPI

JOB DESCRIPTION SUMMARY

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) invites applications for the position of Head of the Department of Humanities and Arts (HUA). The new Department Head will have leadership skills that will support the ongoing efforts of the HUA faculty. By building on the Department's existing strengths and facilitating new opportunities in both scholarship and teaching, the Department Head will enhance the reputation of the department both locally and globally. WPI is committed to building a multi-cultural and otherwise diverse educational community, with an active focus on diversifying the faculty, staff, and students.

JOB DESCRIPTION

The Head of the Humanities and Arts Department is responsible for the academic operations of the department, professional development of the HUA faculty, and for maintaining the high quality of the department's programs, facilities, and reputation. The HUA Department delivers exceptional teaching both in the classroom and at off-campus project sites while enhancing the institute's prestige and visibility via scholarly publications and creative activities. The Department consists of more than 50 full-time faculty in the disciplines of art, art and architectural history, English (including literature, creative writing, rhetoric and writing, and drama/theatre), modern languages (Arabic, Chinese, English for non-native speakers, German, and Spanish), history, international and global studies, music, and philosophy/religion. Every WPI undergraduate completes a sequence of six courses in the humanities or arts as part of WPI's Humanities & Arts general education requirement, culminating in a final project on a theme of the student's choice. The HUA Requirement is part of WPI's nearly 50-year-old undergraduate curriculum—the WPI Plan—which was revolutionary when launched in 1970 and continues to be a national model for the integration of the humanities and arts with STEM fields. All HUA faculty participate in student project advising, often advising interdisciplinary projects with colleagues in technical fields.

The HUA department offers undergraduate degree programs including a B.S. in Humanities & Arts with concentrations in various disciplines, and degrees in Interactive Media & Game Development, International & Global Studies, Liberal Arts & Engineering, and Professional Writing. The Department also offers minors in Chinese studies, drama/theatre, English, German, history, international and global studies, media arts, music, philosophy and religion, Spanish, writing and rhetoric, and others by petition.

Founded in 1865, WPI is one of the nation's first technological universities. A highly selective private university located within an hour of Boston, WPI is consistently ranked among the top 70 research institutions by US News & World Report. The university is home to an innovative and intensive project-based curriculum that empowers students with the knowledge and skills to address real-world problems around the globe. WPI is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive campus community for faculty, staff, and students, where all community members feel a connected sense of belonging. The campus is located close to many of Worcester's major cultural attractions, including the American Antiquarian Society, the Worcester Art Museum, WICN radio, local theater, poetry venues, and several major music performance halls. HUA faculty routinely advise student projects sponsored by these and other cultural institutions.

The successful applicant will have a doctorate or equivalent terminal degree in one of the disciplines listed above and demonstrated abilities in transdisciplinary academic program development and leadership, as well as excellent interpersonal skills. They will have a strong commitment to fostering diversity in all areas of academic life inside and outside of the Department: teaching, scholarship, and service, and as a Department Head, leadership. The new Department Head will also be expected to maintain scholarly activity at a level adequate to the rank of full professor in their respective discipline; however, one does not have to be a full professor at the time of application.

Applications should include a detailed (1) curriculum vitae, (2) vision statement for the department - articulating both immediate and long-term goals, plan for obtaining those goals, and a statement about the applicant's leadership style, and (4) statement of teaching interests, and (5) statement of research interests. WPI is committed to recruiting, retaining, and working with diverse student and campus community populations; thus, applicants should describe in their materials how their scholarship, teaching, service, and/or leadership style contribute to diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning and working environments. Applicants should also submit a list of five professional references, at least one addressing leadership experience, who will be available to write on their behalf. Applications from underrepresented minorities in the humanities and arts are especially encouraged to apply. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.

Job Summary

The Weinberg Institute for Cognitive Science in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan seeks applicants for a new full-time (100%) academic year Lecturer position.  The position will start as early as January 1, 2019, but not later than September 1, 2019, pending final authorization. This is a non-tenure track position, with a university-year nine-month appointment from September 1 through May 31 each year, with salary paid over a 12-month period, and benefits-eligible. The initial appointment will be for three academic years, contingent upon satisfactory performance, need and available funding.  The Institute expects that, for the suitable candidate, this will be a long-term position extending beyond the initial appointment.

Responsibilities

The new Lecturer appointed in the Weinberg Institute for Cognitive Science will help support the instructional and administrative demands of the Cognitive Science major by (a) teaching the gateway course Introduction to Cognitive Science (COGSCI200) at least once per year; (b) providing additional upper division course offerings in at least one of the four tracks of the undergraduate major (Computation and Cognition, Decision and Cognition, Language and Cognition, or Philosophy and Cognition);  and (c) providing administrative oversight of advising and student enrichment activities.

Instructional duties

The position requires teaching three courses per year. At least one course will be Introduction to Cognitive Science, the interdisciplinary gateway course for the Cognitive Science major (COGSCI200), either alone or as co-teacher with one other existing faculty.  The other two courses will be upper-level undergraduate offerings that help to meet curricular needs in one or more of the four tracks of the major.  


Administrative duties

The position involves approximately 13–16 hours per week of administrative activities.  More specifically, these activities will encompass at least the following four areas of responsibility: (i) oversight of peer academic advising; (ii) oversight of the creation and execution of student-enrichment activities focused on academic, intellectual, and career development; (iii) some academic and career advising; and (iv) oversight of the communication and administration of Institute-funded opportunities for cognitive science majors.   All of these responsibilities will be carried out with guidance from and in coordination with the Institute Director, the Institute Chief Administrator, the Institute Undergraduate Committee, and the communications and events staff.

Required Qualifications

We expect that a successful applicant will hold a PhD in Cognitive Science or one of the related core disciplines (e.g. Computer Science, Linguistics, Psychology, Philosophy). The applicant must have interdisciplinary teaching interests and experience, evidenced by interests and experience that span at least two of the core disciplines. The applicant must also be capable of contributing to the upper division offerings in one or more of the four tracks of the Cognitive Science major.

Demonstrated excellence in teaching and engagement with diverse student populations will be an important criterion in our selection process.  We expect that the applicant will be a visible and engaged faculty member in the Institute.

Desired Qualifications

We are especially interested in applicants who can teach large lecture courses in Cognitive Science as well as upper division courses or seminars that will contribute to at least one of the four tracks of the Cognitive Science major.

Job description

The University Center for Human Values (UCHV) and the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) at Princeton University invite applications for a postdoctoral research associate or more senior position working at the intersection of ethics and global change to contribute to the Climate Futures Initiative in Science, Values, and Policy (CFI) – a jointly supported research program. Our aim is to support a scholar whose research agenda focuses on the ethical dimensions of climate change, informed by knowledge of climate science and policy.  Applicants trained in moral and political philosophy, political theory, normative economics, and related areas are encouraged to apply.

The incumbent will be expected to be an active contributor to CFI and, in concert with the program’s faculty leadership and steering committee, will play a central role in planning the group’s activities. He/she will be encouraged to participate in the UCHV and PEI communities and will have responsibility for contributing the equivalent of one course each year to the undergraduate or graduate programs of the Institute or University Center. This contribution may be fulfilled by teaching a course on a topic related to the ethical issues of global change, subject to the needs of the Institute and University Center, sufficient enrollment and approval by the Dean of the Faculty, or other forms of service as suggested by the Institute or University Center.    

For more information on the Climate Futures Initiative, see http://scholar.princeton.edu/cfi/home.  

Qualifications

To be eligible, an applicant must have completed his/her Ph.D.  The applicant’s dissertation need not be specifically in the ethics of climate change, but persons applying to this position will be expected to demonstrate relevant background and commitment to working on a research project in the focal area during their time at Princeton.

Applications will be evaluated on the basis of previous accomplishments, the promise of the proposed research in ethics, climate science, and policy, and the likelihood that the project will be enhanced by being carried out in an interdisciplinary environment. The capacity to contribute to the University’s teaching program may also be taken into account.

Term of Appointment

The term of appointment is one year, normally beginning September 1, 2019, with the expectation of renewal for an additional year contingent upon satisfactory performance. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to be in residence for the duration of his/her appointment. This is a full-time position.  As such, the individual accepting this position may not be employed by another institution during the term of his/her appointment at Princeton.

How to Apply

Applications for this position must be submitted online and include the following materials:

 1.  A current curriculum vitae;

2.   A research proposal (not to exceed 1,500 words) conforming to the expectations stated above. Please identify a statement of research plans and its connection to the focal area described for this position. Also, please indicate a title for the research project at the beginning of the proposal;

3.   A scholarly paper or dissertation chapter (not to exceed 12,000 words) representative of your scholarly achievement or potential; and

4.   Contact information for two referees, each of whom will be asked to comment specifically on your qualifications for the proposed research project. Referees will be contacted directly by email with instructions for uploading letters of reference.

All materials must be submitted online by March 1, 2019, 11:59 P.M. EST. We cannot accept application materials by any other method. Letters of reference are to be submitted by end of business day on March 1, 2019. Decisions will be announced by June 1, 2019.

Vacancies 1
Location Eugene, Oregon, United States
Start date Fall 2019
Job description

The University of Oregon’s Department of Philosophy and Presidential Initiative in Data Science invite applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level with a specialization in Data/Information Ethics, to begin in fall 2019. The Philosophy Department construes ethics in a broad sense as pertaining to a wide range of moral, social, and cultural issues arising in connection with burgeoning data technologies. Competitive applicants will be capable of outstanding research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

The position will be located in the Philosophy Department (philosophy.uoregon.edu) with potential affiliations with other campus units (and a possibility for a split appointment depending on the research trajectory of the successful candidate). The Philosophy Department is a diverse and growing unit with an expansive view of the discipline, a broad understanding of the multiple theoretical traditions that constitute philosophical work, an intellectual climate conducive to interdisciplinary work, a commitment to engaged scholarship, and a strong commitment to faculty and graduate student diversity.
This search is one of nearly a dozen associated with the Presidential Initiative in Data Science (provost.uoregon.edu/data-science).  This initiative is focused on the development of advanced computational and quantitative tools and training programs for gathering and analyzing large amounts of data and associated metadata, as well as interpreting and communicating the findings and social and ethical implications of data science research.  It will spur intentional growth in research and education, using big data and cutting-edge analytics across the entire campus. We are building a cross-disciplinary data science program on a foundation of strong interdisciplinary research and innovative education at a liberal arts research university. We seek scholars prepared to contribute to the program’s growth through excellence in a specific academic focus, as well as through interdisciplinary collaborations across data science writ large. Data Science is supported by the university’s multi-million-dollar investment in the recently launched Talapas supercomputing cluster (hpcf.uoregon.edu). The Data Science Initiative will also have synergies with the newly-launched Knight Campus for Accelerating Impact (accelerate.uoregon.edu).

Minimum Requirements: AOS in Data/Information Ethics; record of research excellence with evidence of publication trajectory in AOS; evidence of commitment to collaborative intellectual inquiry with data science researchers; Ph.D. by time of appointment required; Ph.D. in Philosophy preferred (but applicants with a strong philosophical background from any relevant discipline are encouraged to apply). Salary is competitive. 

Required Application Materials: letter of application, c.v., research statement, writing sample of up to 20 pages focused on the area of specialization, teaching statement, sample syllabi for up to three relevant courses, and three to five letters of reference. Applications accepted until October 21, 2018 6:00 p.m. PST.

Expectations for interdisciplinary collaboration associated with this position are informed by a university goal of furthering ethical inquiry in research contexts developing next-generation data science techniques and methodologies. Competitive applicants will be both successful collaborators and interdisciplinary thinkers. Potential clusters of collaboration include but are not limited to the following areas of data science research: machine learning and artificial intelligence, data-driven analysis (and related “Big Data” and unstructured data research), predictive analytics, bioinformatics, measurement and psychometrics, assessment (in multiple disciplinary contexts), human-computer interaction, and dataveillance/privacy. Specific contexts for research and teaching collaboration in the data sciences include the UO Presidential Initiative in Data Science (provost.uoregon.edu/data-science), the UO Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact (around.uoregon.edu/accelerate), and numerous departments and centers across campus.

Research expectations include publication, conference presentation, collaborative interdisciplinary inquiry with the goal of joint grant applications and co-authored publications, and other impactful research.

Teaching expectations include graduate teaching (including data ethics curriculum geared to graduate students across a range of disciplines), undergraduate teaching from introductory to advanced levels (including standard philosophy courses and undergraduate-specific data ethics curriculum), and mentoring and thesis advisement at graduate and undergraduate levels. UO is on the academic quarter system and the standard teaching load in the Philosophy Department is five courses across three terms per year, with numerous opportunities for course-load reductions.

The University of Oregon is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty and strongly encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups. Applicants are encouraged to include in their cover letter a statement about how they will further this goal.
