The Department of Philosophy at Mount Allison University invites applications for a twelve-month position as McCain Post-Doctoral Fellow.
Candidates should have or be near completion of a PhD in Philosophy. Candidates should also demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate
teaching and a promising research profile. The teaching requirement is two undergraduate courses per term.
