Tenure-track appointment in Philosophy

The Department is seeking an outstanding historian of philosophy, engaged in innovative and potentially ground-breaking research within the timespan from the Early Modern period to the Enlightenment, into the 19th century (ca. 1500-1900) — a historian whose research will advance departmental work in the intersection of philosophy of the sciences, philosophy of values, and/or philosophy of human identity and difference. The Department has a special interest in hiring someone specializing in the philosophy of Kant. AOS must include Kant, or a figure or topic within this timespan; AOC is open. We are seeking a scholar who complements our research expertise, which extends across a spectrum of work in analytic philosophy, history of philosophy, and continental philosophy; and a strong teacher who will contribute to our teaching strengths, be active in our graduate program, and be capable of developing and renewing our curriculum.

Applications should consist of:

  1. a cover letter,
  2. a current CV,
  3. a statement of research achievements and plans,
  4. a statement of teaching philosophy/interests,
  5. evidence of teaching effectiveness, and 
  6. copies of recent publications. 

These are to be combined in one PDF, in that order, with the subject line “2018 History Hire Application.” All applications will receive an e-mail confirmation. Three letters of reference are to be sent electronically, via third party dossier services such as InterFolio, or directly from referees. 

Applications are to be sent to:
