UNIVERSITY OF UTAH, SALT LAKE CITY, UT – ASSISTANT PROFESSOR: The Department of Philosophy seeks to hire a tenure-track Assistant Professor to begin Fall 2018. We are seeking applicants with an AoS in Applied Ethics. “Applied ethics” here is broadly construed to include work in philosophy of science, philosophy of medicine, bioethics, research ethics, socially engaged philosophy of science, philosophy of race, research reproducibility/replicability, or other related areas. Our ideal candidate will become an active member of the School of Medicine’s Division of Medical Ethics and Humanities, a long-standing and important partner of the Department of Philosophy. Teaching load for tenure track faculty at the University of Utah is two courses per semester and includes a mix of undergraduate and graduate teaching. Given teaching needs associated with the Department’s goal of developing a new ‘Philosophy of Science’ major, candidates capable of teaching research ethics are particu!
 larly attractive.

The Department values its top-ranking in terms of percent of women appointed in tenure line positions (see: women-in-philosophy.org), and is committed to pursuing the benefits that such inclusiveness can bring to philosophical inquiry and the classroom. We enthusiastically welcome applications from candidates who share these values, and who possess a strong commitment to improving access to higher education for historically underrepresented students and can help the Department recruit these students as Philosophy Majors. Information pertaining to these issues should be included in your cover letter.

Applicants should provide a CV; cover letter; research statement; teaching statement; writing sample; and at least three letters of recommendation. Review of files will begin November 1.
