The Department of Philosophy, University of Dallas, invites applications for the position of Affiliate Assistant Professor. The appointment is for one year, with possibility of renewal for up to two additional years depending on need. AOS: Open. AOC: Open.

 

The primary responsibility of the successful applicant will be to teach the department’s three contributions to the university’s integrated core curriculum: Philosophy and the Ethical Life, The Human Person, and Philosophy of Being. The core curriculum is the central means by which the university pursues wisdom, truth, and virtue as the proper ends of education, within the context of the Catholic intellectual tradition. Applicants should therefore demonstrate their aptitude and eagerness to contribute to the liberal education of undergraduate students and to the integration of faith and reason as ways of seeking wisdom.

 

In addition to the core curriculum, the successful candidate will contribute to the department’s upper-level course offerings. Applicants with the competence to teach our history course “From Modern to Postmodern Philosophy” are encouraged to indicate this competence as part of their application, but this is not required.

 

Applicants must have a doctorate in philosophy or, at minimum, complete all requirements for the doctoral degree prior the beginning of employment: August 18, 2021.

Applicants should submit a letter of application, evidence of excellent teaching, a complete curriculum vitae, names and contact information for three persons willing to provide letters of recommendation, and unofficial transcripts showing titles of graduate courses taken and highest degree earned. If the transcript does not indicate full course titles, these should be supplied separately. Review of applications will begin on May 1, 2021, and will continue until the position is filled.

 

Questions may be directed to the department chair, Dr. Christopher Mirus, at mirus@udallas.edu.
