Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) will be hiring one to two program manager(s) to help run MAP International’s new inter-campus peer mentorship program in its Beta phase. MAP is a collection of students in philosophy departments that aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. It is currently composed of over 160 chapters worldwide and continues to grow and expand.
The role of program managers is largely to facilitate the success of the MAP peer mentorship program. Each program manager is in charge of no more than 50 graduate student participants in the program. Program managers do not directly participate in the individual peer mentorship groups. The duration of the position is 6 months, with the start date of around March 1, 2021. The estimated workload is about 20 hours for the entire position. Responsibilities include:
Program managers receive a modest honorarium for their work. Half of the honorarium will be dispersed at the start of the position, and the other half at the end. You’re encouraged to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the current rate.
Criteria for applying:
We especially encourage Black, Indigenous, and people of color to apply to these positions. We also encourage undergraduates and master’s students who are considering further education in philosophy to apply, as this position will provide you with the opportunity to get to know the community of philosophy graduate students.
Submit a short statement of interest (1 page) and a short CV (fewer than 2 pages) as a single PDF by February 15, 2021, to email@example.com with the subject line ‘MAP Application.’
