The Department of Philosophy at Mount Allison University invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in philosophy. Candidates should possess, or be nearing completion of, a PhD in philosophy and have a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and to research. While a specialization in the history and philosophy of science is preferred, along with a grounding in the full tradition of the history of philosophy, flexibility in teaching a variety of undergraduate courses will be expected. For example, the successful candidate will teach introductory philosophy, upper-level courses in the history of philosophy, and one or more of metaphysics, logic, environmental philosophy, philosophy of law and philosophy of mind.
The appointment will be made at the rank of Lecturer or Assistant Professor and will commence July 1, 2010, subject to budgetary approval. A letter of application with curriculum vitae, transcript, three letters of reference,
teaching dossier and samples of writing should be sent to:
