The Department of Philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences at Loyola University Chicago (LUC) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor,

As part of a University-wide, multi-year hiring initiative designed to diversify the faculty, the department seeks applicants with expertise in bioethics with an emphasis on
racial and gender disparities in health. As an urban-based Department of Philosophy dedicated to mentoring a diverse student body, many of whom come from under-represented
and under-served populations, we especially encourage applications from candidates from under-represented groups. We also encourage applications from scholars committed to
interdisciplinarity (i.e., working with colleagues across different subfields and disciplines) and the successful pursuit of external grants.
The successful candidate will be joining a department with more than 33 full-time faculty members, over 123 majors, 77 minors, and 155 Bioethics Minors.
We also have MA and PhD graduate programs. For more information about the department, please visit its
