University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Dept. of Philosophy

Oct 22, 2010 Jan 03, 2011

The Philosophy Department at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte invites applications for an Assistant Professor, beginning August 15, 2011. The area of specialization is Philosophy of Law. The area of competence is Knowledge and Reality. In addition to the area of specialization, the successful candidate will teach one or more courses within a component of the undergraduate curriculum emphasizing theories of knowledge, language, and logic. Our department emphasizes applied philosophy and seeks a vital diversity within its faculty, curriculum, and philosophical perspectives. Charlotte's metropolitan area is rich in cultural and racial diversity (over 40% Hispanic/Latino and African-American) and our faculty strives to reflect and interact positively with that population.

Teaching load: two courses per semester, undergraduate and graduate. Teaching experience required; Ph.D. required; publication appropriate to rank. Research and service interests that enhance our ability to pursue external grants are desirable.

UNC Charlotte is a rapidly growing doctoral-level state university located in a thriving urban area with a student body of more than 25,000 and a full-time faculty of over 750. The department currently has 12 full-time and 7 part-time faculty, including one Distinguished Professor.

We offer a major, a Graduate Certificate in Applied Ethics, and an M.A. in Ethics and Applied Philosophy. Our M.A. is linked to a number of interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs on campus and we provide research ethics courses for many of them. So we have a strong tradition of interdisciplinary studies involving all seven of the University's colleges. We are closely affiliated with UNC Charlotte's Center for Professional and Applied Ethics, where the successful candidate is expected to be an active faculty associate.
