Assistant Professor, Tenure-Track. The Philosophy Department of Elon University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in philosophy, beginning mid-August 2023. Elon University is an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse faculty, staff, and student body and welcomes all applicants. We seek a candidate, Ph.D. in hand or with a defense date firmly set, whose teaching is integral to their philosophical life and who would expand, complement and enrich the Philosophy Department’s areas of expertise and long-standing focus on innovative, engaged, praxis-oriented and relationship rich pedagogies. We view and structure our department around a vision of teaching as a shared, collective, on-going enterprise. For more on our teaching practices, see our description of departmental signature pedagogies. AOS: Political Philosophy. AOC: Open. Candidates should be eager to teach in our Philosophy, Politics, and Economics minor. We seek a candidate who:
· thinks of teaching and learning as inherently political activities and organizes the experience of the classroom as such;
· uses engaged/civic pedagogies (inside and/or outside the classroom) to meet learning goals; and
· whose research agenda and pedagogical practices are informed by critical intellectual and practical resources, including but not limited to those developed in the context of non-western philosophies, activism, social movements (including those centering indigenous and diasporic rights, embodied cognition, bodily autonomy, abolitionism, and others), and radical philosophy.
Teaching responsibilities include 6 classes per year, typically including 4 introductory level classes and 2 upper level classes, as well as courses in Elon’s Core Curriculum and at least one course in the PPE minor. Candidates who have experience working with a diverse range of people, and who can contribute to the climate of inclusivity are encouraged to identify their experiences in their cover letter.
