Assistant Professor of Philosophy

The Hope College Philosophy Department invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level to begin in August 2018.  The area of specialization is open, but with a strong preference for Ancient and/or Medieval Philosophy.  We also have a preference for hiring individuals with ability to teach courses that include global perspectives and cross traditional disciplinary and divisional boundaries.  Examples of such courses would include those treating philosophical issues in Ecology, Economics, Sustainability, Technology, Race, and Gender, but the possibilities are not to be understood as limited to the courses listed.  Candidates must be prepared to teach General Education offerings, including interdisciplinary humanities courses, first­-year seminar, and/or senior seminar. 

Ph.D. in hand preferred by start of the appointment. Interdisciplinary teaching experience preferred. An active research agenda is expected, and willingness to work collaboratively with students on candidate's research is highly desirable. Strong candidates should demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence and to the character and goals of a liberal arts college with a Christian perspective.
