Job Description Summary

The Program for Leadership and Character at Wake Forest University seeks a visionary, collaborative, and committed scholar to be the Senior Research Scholar for the Educating Character Initiative (ECI), a nationwide initiative to equip U.S. colleges and universities to educate character and assess the impact of those efforts. The Senior Research Scholar will work closely with the Director of the Educating Character Initiative to develop and execute the evaluation, assessment, and research strategy for the ECI; manage research integration and evaluation across the various functions of ECI; design and coordinate cross-institutional research among ECI community members; and evaluate the short-term and longitudinal impact of the ECI on educating character in undergraduate institutions. The Senior Research Scholar will also design, execute, and publish empirical studies and reports; provide workshops and presentations to support scholars and practitioners; and offer individual assessment consultations to members of the ECI community. The Senior Research Scholar will supervise one Research Coordinator, two Research Fellows, and any research consultants, postdoctoral fellows, or student research assistants who join the effort. In the process, the Senior Research Scholar will work collaboratively with the ECI Director and Senior Scholar of Character in grantee and community stewardship and nurture a positive and productive team culture in ECI and the broader Program for Leadership and Character by working collaboratively, efficiently, and effectively towards common goals, missions, and visions. Given the scope of the role and the scale of the ECI’s efforts, the position offers a unique and exciting opportunity for a scholar to advance a robust scholarly agenda related to leadership and character development and assessment, contribute new ideas and evidence to the growing field of character education, and extend the impact of a major new initiative to promote character education within U.S. colleges and universities.

In the midst of rapid advances in science and technology, China  needs to promote and invest in humanities that are relevant and fully international. As a full capacity international institution of research and postgraduate education in philosophy, CASIP emphasizes interdisciplinary research between philosophy and science. CASIP aims to foster collaborative research projects between philosophy and science and promote innovative projects of foundational research in basic sciences and on philosophical, social,  and ethical issues in cutting- edge, interdisciplinary scientic research/areas. CASIP will be initially housed in the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS).

CASIP comprises five centers: The Center for Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics, the Center for Philosophy of Physical Sciences, the Center for Philosophy of Biological  Sciences, the Center for philosophy of Intelligence and Cognitive Science, the Center for Science and Values. Each center is headed by a leading expert in the area who directs teams of international researchers. The teams are in charge of research projects and train postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate students.

CASIP is currently located together with many of the CAS institutions in the northwest areas of central Beijing, the Zhongguancun area (it is close to where such major universities as the Beijing University and Tsinghua University are located).  UCAS is a major university in Chinese higher education.

AOS categories Epistemology
Philosophy of Mind
Philosophy of Cognitive Science
AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
Location Erlangen, Bavaria, Germany
Start date 01. August 2024
Job description

– Project SENSOR
A range of new interventions targetting our sensory experiences will soon become commonplace in our society: Virtual and augmented reality, scientific sensory tools, sensory prosthetics, stroboscopic stimulation, psychedelic substances, and so on. In this project, we will study these interventions to develop a better philosophical understanding of the sensory experiences these new interventions provide, but also of ordinary sensory experiences. We aim to fully understand the wide range of perceptual and epistemic benefits that these technologies may offer and the related dangers that they may pose. Project SENSOR will achieve this goal by examining three foundational issues in the philosophy of perception of sensory engineering: the nature of (1) illusion and hallucination, (2) direct and indirect perception, and (3) perceptual knowledge and epistemic risks in cases of sensory engineering. 

The SENSOR consortium has been funded by a joint DFG/AHRC-grant and brings together a team from the Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience, University of Glasgow (Derek Brown, Jack Lyons, Fiona Macpherson) with researchers from the Centre for Philosophy and AI Research, FAU Erlangen (Sascha Benjamin Fink + this advertised position). Several joint meetings and coordinated events of these groups are planned.

– Research Environment 
The Centre for Philosophy and AI Research (PAIR) was founded in 2022 with support from a prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Professorship for Vincent C. Müller at the Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU, est. 1743). In addition to the AvH Foundation, PAIR is funded by the University, and 3rd party research funding. Our vision is to help set the agenda in the philosophy and ethics of AI, through publications, events, structures, and visible activities. This research will generate intellectual progress that can have a deep impact towards a better society. Our work involves excellent people with a background in philosophy, cognitive sciences, neurosciences, social sciences and computer sciences. We offer an international, stimulating, supportive and pleasant research environment – situated in a lively and modern workplace in the centre of beautiful Erlangen. The working language at PAIR is English.

PAIR currently has 13 members: The director (Vincent C. Müller), a director of research (Sascha Benjamin Fink), 4 post-doc research fellows, 4 PhD students, 2 post-docs associated with funded projects (BMBF-PsychedELSI and DFG-PhiMiSci), 1 admin, visiting fellows, and affiliated FAU faculty. 

For more information, visit https://www.pair.fau.eu

Beyond PAIR, the postdoc will cooperate with the SENSOR group in Glasgow during regular meetings.

– Tasks
The major focus of this position (75%) will be research on the topics of project SENSOR (see link below). What matters to us is your contribution to intellectual progress in SENSOR-related research, plus contributions to the team overall. Academic excellence is assumed, as are teamwork, an international outlook, and fluent English. 

A minor part (25%) will be helping Sascha Benjamin Fink with managerial tasks, e.g. organising project SENSOR, coordinating with the Glasgow team and DFG, organising workshops and conferences, and supporting Fink's work at PAIR. As most administration works in German, proficiency in German is considered a plus, but is not mandatory.

There are no teaching duties associated with this position. The post-doc is expected to be mostly working on-site at PAIR in Erlangen.

– Benefits 
Salary at level TV-L E13, full-time (currently ca. €50-73000/year, before tax, depending on experience). The employment includes social security benefits, health insurance (1/2 employer, 1/2 employee), pension, sick pay, etc. There is funding for travel to conferences and for the organisation of events.

Starting date: 01.08.2024 (negotiable)

The appointment is initially for 33 months. Employment beyond that will depend on the funding situation by then. Part-time employment is a possibility if needed to allow family-care. 

Everyone deserves to feel at home at our university. In its pursuit of academic excellence, FAU is committed to equality of opportunity and to a proactive and inclusive approach, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture and values diversity. FAU is a family-friendly employer.

– Requirements
PhD in a relevant field, ideally by the time of appointment. A track record of work in the philosophy of perception, philosophy of psychedelics, epistemic risks or philosophy of AI is desirable.

We do not require that applicants already have a visa & work permit for the EU/Germany.

– Procedure
Applications via e-mail to [email protected], with subject line "SENSOR", with a single PDF that includes:
• A motivation letter (max. 2 pages) 

• CV (with publications, if applicable)

• Writing sample of what the candidate considers their best work

Position Description Summary:

The University Honors Program (UHP) at the George Washington University (GW) seeks a one (1) semester Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) to teach three (3) sections of the first-year seminar, “Origins and Evolution of Modern Thought,” in Fall 2024. Applicants will have broad training in the history of Philosophy and experience with both Western and Eastern intellectual traditions. This is a one-semester appointment, without the possibility of reappointment.

Specific Duties and Responsibilities:

The successful candidate will be required to teach three (3) sections of HONR 1015: “Origins and Evolution of Modern Thought.” This is a 4-credit course for first-year UHP students. Each section is capped at 16 students. The course immerses students in an exploration of significant exemplars, milestones, and developments of human thought, studying foundational ideas and texts of the ancient world in the Fall (moving to modernity in the Spring). There is much flexibility within the specific topic of each section, provided the course engages students in critical thinking by discussing and debating fundamental and enduring questions of the human condition. Course descriptions from previous semesters can be found on this website (under “Past Course Descriptions”). The seminar is discussion-based, not lecture-based.  It serves as UHP students’ first-year writing course and thus incorporates writing instruction, drafting, and peer review. The exact teaching schedule will be fairly flexible, based on program needs and instructor preference. The seminar meets twice a week for 75 minutes plus one additional 50-minute "writing lab." All sections are taught on GW’s Mount Vernon Campus in Washington, DC. Instructors are expected to challenge our excellent students while also providing a supportive and caring environment in which every member of our diverse student body feels welcome.

AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
Location Reykjavík, Capital Region, Iceland
Start date 1 September 2024
Job description

This is a two-year postdoctoral position in philosophy of language and philosophy of mind. The position is part of a three-year project funded by the Icelandic Research Fund. The Project Leader is Elmar Unnsteinsson (University of Iceland and University College Dublin) and Principal Investigator is Daniel W. Harris (CUNY Graduate Center and Hunter College). 

The title of the project is "Genre and Conversation" and its major task is to develop a theory of basic differences between conversation types. The project has a very broad scope and provides considerable freedom and independence for the postdoctoral fellow to pursue new and interesting research within contemporary philosophy of language and mind. Candidates are encouraged to use the Statement of Research Intent to describe in a generic way the questions and issues they would be most interested to pursue and explain how this builds on earlier projects. The main focus need not be on how those questions and issues are related to the themes of the project.

The project targets foundational questions in planning theory, the semantics-pragmatics interface, and the relation between philosophy of language or mind and philosophy of action. The capacity to recognize and navigate basic genres of conversation is postulated as a component of normal pragmatic competence.

The postdoc will work with Elmar Unnsteinsson and will be an employee of the University of Iceland. The postdoc will also be a Visiting Scholar at University College Dublin and have many opportunities to participate in events or seminars organized in New York. The project is based on a network of collaborators whose core is defined by Reykjavík, Dublin, and New York. Other official participants are Ethan Nowak, Henry Schiller, Jessica Keiser, Sam Berstler, Nat Hansen, and Sarah Fisher.

The application should include:

  • An academic CV
  • A statement of research intent (up to 500 words)
  • A sample of academic writing (e.g., an article or chapter)
  • Certificates of academic degrees
  • Two or three letters of recommendation with contact information (please ask each referee to email their letter to [email protected])
Requirements:
  • A doctoral degree completed within 5 years from the beginning of the fellowship (extensions of eligibility window will be considered for career breaks relating to illnesses, maternity or paternity leaves and other related events).
  • Excellent English skills both spoken and written.
  • Research background relating to the research focus of the project such as philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, linguistics, and cognitive science is desirable.

Wages according to the current collective agreement by the Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs and Félag háskólakennara.

For further information please contact Elmar Unnsteinsson, [email protected], or Eiríkur Smári Sigurðsson, Director of Research, School of Humanities, [email protected].

All applications will be answered and applicants will be informed about the appointment when a decision has been made. We may request more information to help us assess your application. Applications may be valid for six months.

About Binghamton University:

Binghamton University is a world-class institution that unites more than 130 broadly interdisciplinary educational programs with some of the most vibrant research in the nation. Our unique character - shaped by outstanding academics, facilities and community life - promotes extraordinary student success.

Binghamton merges rigorous academics, distinguished faculty and state-of-the-art facilities to engage and challenge its 17,000 students. The high-achieving Binghamton student body also represents a great diversity of life experiences, from first-generation college students to international students. These classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.

Position Description:

The Philosophy Department at Binghamton University, State University of New York, is seeking applicants for a PRODiG+ Postdoctoral Fellowship. The Fellowship is for two academic years, with a teaching obligation of one course per academic year in the area of the Fellow's research, and comes with a highly competitive compensation package. The area of research specialization is Social and Political Philosophy. The Philosophy Department will strongly support the Fellow's research with the goal of converting their position to a tenure-track assistant professorship at the conclusion of the fellowship. The standard teaching load for tenured and tenure-track faculty in the Philosophy Department is 2/2. 

The Fellowship is part of the SUNY PRODiG+ initiative that focuses on two goals: (1) increasing the number and share of excellent diverse faculty committed to advancing the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion; and (2) strengthening the pipeline for retention and support of these faculty. Eligible candidates must demonstrate personal, academic, and/or work experience engaging diversity, equity, and inclusion and/or a commitment to facilitating and enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts in the campus community. Such experience may include, but is not limited to, an academic/scholarly track record focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion; work, volunteer/unpaid/community service; or related experience/expertise in serving underserved or vulnerable areas and/or populations. Also, candidates must be eligible to work in the United States without a visa sponsorship, and have a Ph.D. in Philosophy or related discipline from an accredited institution completed prior to the start date. 

The Fellow will join a vibrant intellectual environment. The Philosophy Department is home to the graduate program in Social, Political, Ethical, and Legal Philosophy (SPEL). SPEL is distinctive in supporting a diverse scholarly community engaged with value theory from multiple (including non-western) historical traditions as well as from a variety of contemporary approaches. The Fellow will be welcome to participate in colloquia, reading groups, and other department and graduate program activities, will have opportunity to interact with graduate students, and will be actively supported by department faculty, many of whom are likely to have partly overlapping research interests.

The Fellowship begins at the start of the 2024 Fall semester. To apply, please submit a letter of application, a detailed curriculum vitae that identifies three professional references, a note indicating eligibility according to the above requirements, and a writing sample. Applications should be submitted through the link below. After an initial review of these application materials, selected candidates will be asked to submit additional materials such as a teaching dossier, and to have letters from their references submitted. Initial interviews of selected applicants will take place via Zoom, and finalists will be invited for on-campus interviews.

Research Fellow (Fixed term)
Job category Postdoc or similar / Fixed term
AOS The Logic and Rationality of Imagination; What if…? Knowing by imagining (WIKI)
AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 1
Location St Andrews, United Kingdom
Start date 1st January 2025.
Job description

£37,099 - £40,251 per annum

Applications are sought for a Research Fellow (postdoc) to work with Principal Investigator (PI) Prof. Franz Berto, conducting research at the Arché Research Centre at the Department of Philosophy.

The postdoc will work in a 4-year project funded by the Leverhulme Trust, starting on 1st January 2025, and entitled ‘What if…? Knowing by imagining (WIKI). The Logic and Rationality of Imagination’. This will be a four-year, full time research job.

Here follows a short description of the WIKI project:

‘What if?'-counterfactual questions are of momentous importance for scientific explanations (‘Would we see that particle track if the atom was ionized?’), to ascertain responsibilities (‘Would he have hit the brakes, had he not been distracted?’), to choose what to do (‘Would I get to the other side if I jumped the stream?’). We address them by imagining that a hypothetical situation obtains and wondering what would follow. But how can imagination give us knowledge of reality, if it's free departure from reality?

WIKI will apply in the philosophy of imagination tools from formal epistemology, in particular epistemic and probabilistic logic, to address this issue. If we start by taking counterfactual imagination as a kind of simulated belief revision, we can then analyze it using formal theories of belief revision, in qualitative (focusing on full, all-or-nothing belief) and quantitative clothing (focusing on credences/degrees of belief). In three interrelated subprojects, WIKI will (1) develop a logic and formal epistemology of imagination as suppositional thinking, (2) apply them to analyse the workings of scientific thought experiments, and (3) compare them to empirical results from the psychology of reasoning, to provide an account of how we can become better hypothetical reasoners.

The post is available for 48 months starting on 1st January 2025.

Employees of the University have access to a wide range of staff benefits including:

  • Annual leave of 34 days, plus 5 public holidays
  • Membership of the USS Pension Scheme with generous employer contributions
  • A hybrid working environment, including partial homeworking where appropriate and a range of family friendly policies
  • Staff discount scheme for local and national goods and services
  • Free staff parking, employee Carshare and Cycle to Work Schemes and subsidised local bus travel
  • Subsidised sports membership, reduced tuition fees on degree programmes for staff/children of staff, access to library facilities, salary sacrifice scheme and a range of wellbeing initiatives

For further details on the project and inquiries, contact the PI Franz Berto ( [email protected] ). 

Applications are particularly welcome from women, people from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community, and other protected characteristics who are under-represented in research posts at the University.  

Equality, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of the St Andrews experience.  We strive to create a fair and inclusive culture demonstrated through our commitment to diversity awards (Athena Swan, Carer Positive, LGBT Charter and Race Charters). We celebrate diversity by promoting profiles of BAME, LGBTIQ+ staff and supporting networks including the Staff BAME Network; Staff with Disabilities Network; Staff LGBTIQ+ Network; and the Staff Parents & Carers Network.  Full details available online: https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/

 Closing Date: 30 April 2024.

Job Talk and Interview Dates [online/links to be provided]:  June 10 and June 11, 2024.

Visiting Assistant Professor and Faculty Fellow in Native and Indigenous Studies

Hamilton College invites applications for a two-year visiting faculty fellow in Native and Indigenous Studies with the possibility of a one-year extension, beginning July 1, 2024. We welcome applications from early career candidates who will have a PhD, MFA, or other terminal degree in hand by the start date of the appointment. Hamilton College places the highest value on undergraduate teaching; consequently, we seek teacher-scholars who can demonstrate a capacity in their supporting materials for excellent teaching and who have a commitment to working effectively with a student population that is broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion. We encourage and welcome applications from members of groups traditionally underrepresented in the faculties of higher education institutions.

This position requires vision, initiative, and a desire to join a Hamilton community eager to incorporate Native and Indigenous issues throughout the curriculum and to build a Native and Indigenous Studies program. This initiative will draw curricular and thematic connections across departments, areas, and faculty and enhance the presence of Native and Indigenous Studies on campus, and provide more formal connections between faculty and the Wellin Museum of Art where several exhibits in the past 10 years have focused on the relationship of Indigenous Studies within a liberal arts education.  Equally important, the initiative also aspires to develop and strengthen the relationship between the College, the Oneida Indian Nation, and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy through shared programing and community connections.

Through the various activities of this fellowship and with the creation of a Native and Indigenous Studies program, our hope is that Hamilton students will be able to: identify the relationship between colonial and decolonized approaches to knowledge creation and understanding; critically analyze materials and their contexts to draw connections between the past, present, and future; identify disciplinary practice and the creation of social, structural, and institutional hierarchies; and be able to conduct their own interdisciplinary research with a focus on Native and Indigenous lifeways.

Fellowship Terms

The salary range for this position will be $74,400-76,900 plus $5,000 per year for research expenses in addition to at least one conference trip. The College also provides health insurance benefits, relocation subsidy and college housing eligibility, and academic support including office space and a computer.

During the period of residence at Hamilton, in collaboration with each other, fellows will propose, develop, and each offer three courses per academic year. The visiting faculty fellows will also undertake initiative-related work, which includes:

(i) work with the initiative to create programming and bring speakers to campus,

(ii) help organize a symposium and campus-wide events,

(iii) participate in campus discussions to build a Native and Indigenous Studies program,

(iv) collaborate in foundation grant writing to support the initiative as appropriate

(v) work with other departments or the Wellin Museum of Art to create curricula or courses that support Native and Indigenous Studies

(vi) guest teach or guest lecture in courses as needed/requested

(vii) work on collaborative projects between the Oneida Indian Nation and the College when appropriate to their field of expertise

Qualifications

We seek candidates whose work engages with any one or more of the following thematic areas, particularly in ways centered in the American Northeast and/or the region’s hemispheric and global connections.

■ Cultural Expression and Performance: oral history, communication, and transmitting generational knowledge as performing or studio arts. Areas of emphasis could include literature, creative writing, visual studies, art history, dance, theater, studio art, and/or music, with a focus on communicating generational knowledge within and between Indigenous Peoples, and with external audiences.

■ Environmental Indigenous Studies: climate change, environmental ethics, political action, ethnobotany, climate justice, and tribal governance.

■ Identity and Indigenous Traditions: gender, sexuality, and feminism, ethics, critical sovereignty, and queer theory.

■ Indigeneity and Policy: Federal Law and Policy, land acknowledgement and representation, Indigenous histories and philosophies, and Institutional and Social Geography in the study of place.

■ Indigenous Health: traditional medicine, population-specific vulnerabilities (addiction, diabetes), healthcare discrepancies, mental health, spirituality, conceptualizations of the mind.

■ Indigenous Ways of Knowing: Placemaking and local knowledge, metaphysics, intersection of indigenous knowledge and scientific understandings, museums, heritage display, curatorial practice, and material culture studies.

■ Languages: Native North American language and communicative norms as well as global indigenous cultural and language revitalization efforts: Indigenous Language Revitalization, Indigenous Oral Traditions, Indigenous Cultural Revitalization Movements.

Application Instructions

Applications should be submitted http://apply.interfolio.com/137015 and should include:

■ a cover letter with a description of your research and teaching interests/experience;

■ a CV;

■ a one- to two-page statement describing your work in community engagement;

■ a 500-word statement explaining why this fellowship would be significant to your professional life; and

■ Names of three professional references (letters will be requested for finalists).

Review of applications will begin on January 20, 2024 and will remain open until the position is filled. As this is an expressly interdisciplinary initiative, we encourage interested candidates to identify at least two academic units from those listed below with which they might affiliate and/or offer courses.

Participating departments and programs:

●       American Studies

Job description

Just Transformations Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Pennsylvania State University is in its third year of a 3.1-million-dollar grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support its Just Transformations Initiative. This grant allows the University to expand existing programs and develop new initiatives focused on Black studies, racial justice, and diversifying academic communities and pipelines. The College of the Liberal Arts (https://la.psu.edu/) seeks applications from scholars who wish to advance their research or expand their digital and public-facing scholarship.

Up to six Postdoctoral Fellowships will be available for the 2024-25 Academic year. These are one-year, term appointments from the date of hire with a possibility for renewal.

We seek applicants who have a deep and demonstrated commitment to diversity in the academy whose research also focuses on the consequences of racial inequities, barriers to racial equality, and democratic social change and transformation. Scholars from historically underrepresented racial minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

As Just Transformations Postdocs, fellows will identify a department or research center/institute (as detailed below) with which to affiliate. Please indicate your preferred affiliation in the opening lines of your cover letter and provide any additional materials that may be required for consideration, as described below. Postdocs affiliated with a Center will also have the opportunity to become affiliated with a department.

Just Transformations Postdocs will enjoy the support of the College of the Liberal Arts’ Office of Digital Pedagogy and Scholarship team (including the Initiative’s Digital Liberal Arts Designer) and will have access to advanced training in digital methods as appropriate to their scholarly projects. No teaching responsibilities are required for these fellowships; however, teaching opportunities may be made available if the scholar wishes to pursue them.

Departments and research centers available for the Just Transformations Postdocs to affiliate with include:

Center for Black Digital Research/#DigBlk Fellow Affiliation: The Center for Black Digital Research (#DigBlk) is a public-facing research center that is committed to bringing the histories of nineteenth-century Black organizing to digital life through collaborative scholarship and project-based research. The Center is home to the award-winning Colored Conventions Project, Douglass Day, and the Black Women’s Organizing Archive. Postdocs who join #DigBlk will work with an interdisciplinary, cross-institutional team of 25-30 members who meet regularly on collaborative research projects that include digital archive-building, exhibit-making, crowd-sourced transcription projects, community-arts partnerships, and scholarly and digital editions. Applicants for #DigBlk are encouraged to explain their interests and experience in working on team-based, archive-building projects that use digital methods to introduce new scholarly and public audiences to the history of Black organizing in the long nineteenth century.

Humanities Institute Affiliation: The Humanities Institute is dedicated to supporting research and teaching in the humanities that is shaped by a collaborative spirit and is alert to how humanities scholarship is crucial for broader conversations about pressing social issues. Several initiatives housed in the Institute are grounded in this mission, including organizing lectures, conferences, and workshops; a “public humanities initiative” for students and faculty whose humanities work connects to socially important questions (including the production of a televised documentary series); and support for collaborative research groups. Just Transformations Postdoctoral Fellows will be invited to participate in events, activities, or initiatives that resonate with their research interests.

Departmental affiliation: Departmental affiliations are available with the departments of African American Studies, English, History, and Philosophy.

More information on the Just Transformations Initiative can be found at https://www.psu.edu/news/research/story/mellon-foundation-awards-31-million-broad-diversity-education-initiative/

Applicants should have their Ph.D. in hand by August 2024. Applications should include (1) a cover letter indicating what department, Center, or Institute you seek affiliation/placement with, (2) a CV, (3) contact information for two references, and (4) a letter describing your work; how you would contribute to the goals of the Just Transformations Initiative and the Department, Center, or Institute you are seeking to join; and how your participation in this project would further your professional development.

Successful applicants will be distinguished by their scholarly excellence, commitment to social justice research and work, and by how their interests align with those of the Department, Center, or Institute that they become affiliated with, along with its values and mission. In addition, successful candidates must either have demonstrated a commitment to building an inclusive, equitable, and diverse campus community, or describe one or more ways they would envision doing so, given the opportunity.

It is expected that the Postdoctoral Fellows will work at Penn State’s University Park, Pennsylvania, campus for the full academic year and contribute to the Just Transformations Initiative by participating in the intellectual life of the campus, working with faculty and students, attending symposia and events, and contributing to Just Transformations or affiliated Center/Department meetings and discussions.

Embedded EthiCS Postdoctoral Fellowship in Philosophy (Fixed term)
Job category Postdoc or similar / Fixed term
AOS Open
AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 4
Location Allston, Massachusetts, United States
Start date July 1, 2024
Job description

The Harvard Program for Embedded EthiCS invites applications for one or more fellowships based in the Philosophy Department beginning July 1, 2024, pending funding and program needs. The fellowships will be for a maximum of three years, with the second and third years contingent on program funding and a yearly satisfactory review. The postdoctoral fellows will be expected to spend 50% of their time working with the Embedded EthiCS program (including teaching, mentoring, and engagement activities) and 50% of their time on their own independent research. 

Harvard’s Embedded EthiCS is a collaborative, multidisciplinary pedagogical program that embeds the teaching of ethics directly into the computer science curriculum by creating and teaching ethics modules for courses across the CS curriculum. For details about this exciting program, please see ourwebsite. The postdoctoral fellows will have responsibility for: 

  • teaching modules in the program, 

  • participating in a Teaching Lab that develops ethics modules, 

  • coaching less experienced Fellows or Teaching Assistants, 

  • advising an undergraduate senior thesis related to the fellows’ areas of expertise, 

  • participating in engagement activities with other programs around Harvard and the greater Boston area, and 

  • serving as liaison with other groups developing computing ethics education programs around the globe. 

The fellows will have a faculty advisor in the Department of Philosophy and are encouraged to participate in the full range of Department activities. The fellows are also encouraged to participate in the many efforts at Harvard to address the social impact of technology through our program’s ties with Harvard’s Center for Research in Computation and Society; Harvard’s Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Ethics; and Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society (among many others). 

We seek applicants who are enthusiastic about working with computer scientists to develop ethics modules for their courses and who are passionate about building a more ethical and responsible computing ecosystem. They need not have computer science experience themselves, but they should be eager to engage with computer science experts, even if that requires engaging with technical material. They must demonstrate competence to teach ethics, but ethics need not be their area of specialization. Successful candidates will have significant teaching experience, ideally including experience with cross-disciplinary research or teaching, and enthusiasm about developing ethics pedagogy. 

Applicants must have completed all the requirements for a doctorate in Philosophy or related discipline by June 30, 2024. The term of the fellowship is July 1, 2024-June 30, 2025, with the possibility of renewal (see above).

We strongly encourage applications from women and underrepresented groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university's research and teaching missions. Salary is extremely competitive. 

Please submit the following materials by January 7, 2024

  • Cover letter stating your background and interest in the Embedded EthiCS program

  • CV 

  • Teaching statement

  • Teaching portfolio (teaching chart listing courses taught in reverse chronological order; representative syllabi; teaching evaluations, ideally accompanied by a chart or table summarizing the quantitative data on main questions; list of undergraduates for whom you have been primary advisor, if applicable)

  • Research statement 

  • Recent writing sample (no more than 10,000 words) 

  • 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 at least three letters have been received. Please notify your referees to expect a request for their letter of recommendation. 

If you have questions about the Embedded EthiCS program or the application process, please contact us at [email protected]

Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Job description

Prof. E. J. Green, Miller Associate Professor of Philosophy with secondary appointment in Psychological and Brain Sciences, together with the Foundations of Mind Group at Johns Hopkins University, invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Foundations of Mind for a target start date of Sept 1, 2024.

The Foundations of Mind Group is a vibrant interdisciplinary group, connecting faculty, post-docs, and graduate students across the university who are interested in theoretical questions about the mind-brain. Its core faculty are appointed in the Departments of Philosophy, Psychological and Brain Sciences, Cognitive Science (including Linguistics), as well as the Zanvyl Krieger Mind-Brain Institute. The group collaborates, co-teaches, co-advises, organizes reading groups, and sponsors talks and other events. Collaborations among group members have recently appeared in journals such as Mind & Language, The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Science, Psychological Review, Linguistics and Philosophy, and Analysis. Recent Foundations of Mind postdocs have published in Philosophy of Science, The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, and Mind & Language, among other venues.  Current members include Professors Steven Gross, Chaz Firestone, Barbara Landau, Ian Phillips, Elanor Taylor, Lisa Feigenson, Shari Liu, Michael McCloskey, Hanna Pickard, Justin Bledin, Jonathan Flombaum, Paul Smolensky, Christopher Fetsch, Marina Bedny, Ed Connor, Christopher Krupenye, Kyle Rawlins, Howard Egeth, and Justin Halberda.

While a PhD in philosophy is preferred, applicants from other fields (e.g., psychology, cognitive science, or neuroscience) with significant philosophical interests will also be considered. Their research agenda should address topics related to the interests of Prof. Green and/or other members of the group. The research should combine perspectives from more than one of the group’s constituent disciplines, and should yield publications that embody this interdisciplinary perspective.

The ideal candidate will also help to organize workshops on topics at the intersection of philosophy and the mind-brain sciences. The candidate will have opportunities to collaborate with Prof. Green and other members of the group. Although teaching is not required, the candidate will have the opportunity to teach (or co-teach) one course during each year of the Fellowship.

The Johns Hopkins University is committed to equal opportunity for its faculty, staff, and students. To that end, the university does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, marital status, pregnancy, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, veteran status or other legally protected characteristic. The university is committed to providing qualified individuals access to all academic and employment programs, benefits and activities on the basis of demonstrated ability, performance and merit without regard to personal factors that are irrelevant to the program involved.

Qualifications
Applications are welcome from candidates who will have their PhD by Sept 1, 2024. Applications will be evaluated based on the applicant’s previous accomplishments, the promise of their proposed research project, and the applicant’s ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the Foundations of Mind group at both an individual and collective level.

Terms of Appointment
The position is anticipated to begin on Sept 1, 2024. It is expected to be a 2-year position, assuming satisfactory performance in the first year. In some circumstances, renewal for a third year may be possible. The position is fully funded. Applicants are expected to be in residence for the duration of the appointment and they may not be employed by another institution during that term. Johns Hopkins offers competitive salary and employee benefits.

Job description

George Mason University seeks to hire a postdoctoral teaching fellow in continental philosophy with a specialization in Phenomenology, including an ability to teach one or more of such figures as Husserl, Heidegger, Levinas or Merleau-Ponty. We welcome applications from candidates who undertake phenomenological analysis of pressing issues of social, political, or global concern, as well as those engaged in critical phenomenology or pursuing phenomenology as it has been taken up in nonwestern traditions. An ability to teach Ancient Philosophy at undergraduate level would be of interest. The standard teaching load for this position is 2:2.

The position offers the opportunity to undertake postdoctoral research while developing a multifaceted teaching portfolio. The successful candidate will be assigned a selected set of mentors, to offer support in research, teaching, and professional development; will have access to professional development funds; and will be part of an interdisciplinary cohort of postdoctoral fellows supported by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. They will have opportunities to engage with colleagues in other departments and programs in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, including through George Mason’s Center for Humanities Research, and will have access to faculty mentors with expertise in public philosophy, including members of the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy.

Responsibilities

The successful candidate will: 

  • Develop a robust research agenda and produce outstanding scholarship in continental philosophy with a particular emphasis on phenomenology, including interdisciplinary approaches where appropriate.
  • Teach at undergraduate and graduate level to include courses in phenomenology that encompass both key historical figures and recent developments. As examples, we welcome syllabi that introduce students to the ways in which phenomenology has been taken up in nonwestern traditions or in Meso- and Latin American philosophy; or that foreground  the value of phenomenological methods for the critical analysis of social, political and global issues, such as for instance the environment, disability, carcerality, borderlands, race, gender and sexuality.
  • Develop a multi-faceted teaching portfolio with the support of faculty mentors.
  • Engage in professional development in collaboration with faculty mentors and participate in the Postdoctoral Fellows Workshop Series hosted by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
  • Undertake selected mentoring of student research at undergraduate and graduate levels.

Required Qualifications:

  • Doctoral degree in Philosophy: applicants must have completed the successful defense of their dissertation (or equivalent) by the time of appointment and received their doctorate within 5 years of the start date of August 2024.
  • A research trajectory commensurate with an early career researcher in Philosophy, with a specialization in phenomenology.

Location Crawfordsville, Indiana, United States
Start date July 1, 2024
Job description

Wabash College, a liberal arts college for men located in Crawfordsville, Indiana, seeks applicants to fill two types of visiting positions. First, a Post-doctoral Scholar-in-Residence to be housed in the Stephenson Institute for Classical Liberalism. Second, a senior-level Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence, also to be housed in the Stephenson Institute for Classical Liberalism.

The Post-doctoral Scholar-in-Residencies are residential fellowships that support full-time research and publication efforts. The duration of the appointment is one academic year with the possibility of renewal for a second-year term.

The Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence is also a residential appointment to support full-time research and publication efforts, ideally during sabbatical leave from the candidate’s home institution. The duration of the appointment is one academic year, but single semester appointments are also possible on a case-by-case basis.

The disciplinary field, project design, and research approach for both types of positions are open. Successful applicants will have an interest in engaging with our students and participating in the intellectual life of the College and Institute during the fellowship. Applicants will propose a project that contributes to one or more of the subject areas and research topics of particular interest to the Stephenson Institute’s mission:

  • The institutional and cultural conditions of individual rights and legal equality
  • Free inquiry, free expression, free speech, and the market-place of ideas
  • The relationship(s) between market economies and government intervention
  • The role of personal responsibility in a free society
  • Comparative and historical investigations of differing property rights regimes
  • Comparative political economy and comparative political philosophy

Applicants are invited in their proposals to offer other ideas for how they might contribute to the Institute’s programming and areas of student engagement. While the primary focus of the position is research, any Scholar-in-Residence will also contribute to campus conversations via participation in Institute programming. There are no formal teaching expectations, but candidates who desire to teach a course should indicate that interest in their materials. A teaching placement is at the discretion of the relevant academic department.

Preferred start date is July 1, 2024. This position provides salary, benefits, office space, relocation costs, and a generous fund to support research, travel, and related needs. Salary will be commensurate with relevant experience and academic field.
