The College of St. Scholastica Philosophy Department invites applications for a tenure-track position beginning September 2020 at the rank of Assistant Professor. Area of specialization is open, excluding Ancient and Medieval; area of competence should include Political Philosophy and History of Modern Philosophy. The department particularly welcomes applicants who, in addition to the areas of competence listed above, have interest working with interdisciplinary programs and expertise in any of the following areas: philosophy of medicine, philosophy of science, philosophy of technology, philosophy of law, or public philosophy. The successful candidate will contribute to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion at the College. Applications received by January 13 will receive full consideration.
The philosophy department is small (three members) and pluralistic, interested in an applicant who could help grow our major and teach a variety of courses while advancing their own research agenda and contributing to the department’s initiatives. Currently, these initiatives include increasing the visibility of the department’s expertise in ethics (creating a track in ethics, possibly an Ethics Bowl team, etc.), increasing its online course offerings, and positioning the program as an excellent pre-law major. The teaching load is 3/3 with standard non-teaching service and research expectations.
A completed Ph.D. in Philosophy, demonstrated excellence in teaching, and commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education are required.
