Queens University: National Scholars Program
Aug 08, 2008 → Oct 17, 2008
The Department of Philosophy of Queen's University invites applications from outstanding scholars for faculty appointments under the Queen's National Scholars Program. The Department has needs in the history of philosophy, especially Kant, but is eager to consider applications from excellent candidates in any area of Philosophy.
The QNS Program is a special university-wide competition in which units are invited to nominate candidates for appointment. Up to three positions will be available in the 2008-2009 competition. Two of these will be in the Humanities and Social Sciences and one will be in the Health Sciences, the Natural Sciences, or Engineering. Preference will be given to scholars to be appointed at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The goal of these appointments is to enrich teaching and research in newly developing fields of knowledge as well as in traditional disciplines. The main criterion of interest to the selection committee is academic excellence in both research and teaching. The University invites applications from all qualified individuals. Queen’s is committed to employment equity and diversity in the workplace and welcomes applications from women, visible minorities, aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity.
Appointments under this special program will be either tenure-track or special shorter term appointments in accordance with the Collective Agreement between the University and the Queen's University Faculty Association.
Each completed application should include a curriculum vitae, a statement of current and prospective research interests and a statement regarding teaching interests and experience. Applicants should also supply information concerning any interruptions in their academic careers.
