Elon University, Post-Doc in the Teaching of Philosophy
Oct 28, 2014 → Dec 19, 2014
Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Teaching of Philosophy.
Elon University invites applications for a 3-year, non-renewable Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Teaching of Philosophy, beginning mid-August 2015. AOS/AOC open. The Fellowship is designed as an intensive incubator of teaching skills and an engagement with teaching as a subject of philosophical reflection, systematic and venturesome experimentation, practice, and research. We seek a recent PhD (with degree granted no earlier than 2012; candidates must have degree in hand no later than June 1, 2015) whose teaching is organic to his or her philosophical life and who seeks to strengthen his or her already promising teaching skills in our energetic and collaborative department and university. Fellows teach a slightly reduced course load of five courses per year, all levels (including courses in Elon’s General Studies Program), participate in departmental activities (including bi-weekly pedagogy lunches), as well as offerings of Elon’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning.
Fellows enjoy university privileges of Assistant Professors, including eligibility to apply for most internal grants. With that support, we expect Fellows to further develop a research agenda in philosophy pedagogy while also pursuing scholarship in their areas of specialization. To apply, go to Elon, where you will be asked to submit: a letter addressing the goals of the Fellowship, CV, transcripts, a substantial statement of teaching philosophy and aspirations, summary of teaching/course evaluations, and three letters of recommendation. According to best practices for inclusive hiring, we ask that the teaching statement and c.v. are written for anonymous review (Please see our website for more detailed instructions). Given the nature of this position, the first round of application evaluations will focus heavily on the teaching statement. Elon is a dynamic private, co-educational, comprehensive institution that is a national model for actively engaging faculty and students in teaching and learning. To learn more about Elon, please visit the University web site at Elon. Elon University is an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse faculty, staff and student body and welcomes all applicants. Completed applications must be received by December 15, 2014 to receive full consideration.
