Candidates are required to have by start date a Ph.D. in Philosophy. (ABD will be considered as Instructor until Ph.D. is attained). Evidence of excellent teaching at the undergraduate level is a necessary condition for appointment. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups in the profession are especially encouraged to apply.

Dossiers should include a letter of application addressing the candidate’s potential contributions to the mission of the department (no longer than 2 pages), CV, three letters of recommendation, graduate school transcripts, evidence of successful teaching, and a writing sample. For information about the department, see  Applications should be submitted to:  Review of applications will begin November 1st. Position open until filled.
