There is a competitive application process for this Summer Program, and we will accept 10 students. Transportation to and from Northeastern, as well as room and board are provided. A modest stipend is awarded to each participant.
By participating in this supportive program, undergraduates study logic in an inclusive setting and learn that there is a place for them in the field and that they have something valuable to offer the discipline.

The University of South Florida announces its annual philosophy graduate student conference, “Resistance and Love After Foundationalism”. We invite papers on the topics of resistance, love, and friendship, departing from the foundationalism of the Modern period. We intend to discuss the possibility, conditions for the possibility, or desirability of such a departure. We hope for papers from traditions that are post-foundationalist, non-foundationalist, or otherwise alternative to foundationalism. However, the theme is to be interpreted broadly and pluralistically, and interdisciplinary papers are welcome. We encourage submissions from scholars in minority and marginalized groups.

The College would like this postdoctoral position to address some of the larger issues and politics facing the United States today. As a result, we especially invite applications from scholars who work either on the philosophy of race or on the political economy of race, gender, and class, particularly in relation to urban politics.

The Fellow will receive mentorship from faculty affiliated with the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies and an appropriate College department. The Center for Interdisciplinary Studies encourages and supports innovative teaching and scholarship that reaches across academic fields and methods. Several academic programs are part of the Center including Africana Studies; Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies; Latin American and Latino Studies; and Peace and Conflict Studies. Other interdisciplinary minors and majors in fields as diverse as Neuroscience and Architectural Studies are also administered through the Center.

The full-time fellowship offers a competitive salary and full benefits as well as conference travel support and a $2000 faculty development account to support scholarship. Renewal for the second year will be contingent on a successful first-year review.
Candidates must demonstrate commitment to undergraduate teaching as well as promise of scholarly achievement. The successful candidate must have earned the doctorate by August 2018.
Please submit a cover letter addressing the position requirements listed above, curriculum vitae, statement on teaching, transcripts, and three confidential letters of recommendation.
