Position Summary

The Department of Philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is seeking to appoint a tenure-track faculty member – preferably an Assistant Professor, or an early-in rank Associate Professor — to begin July 1, 2020. This person would be a core faculty member in our thriving Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) Program and would be expected to contribute substantially to the PPE program. AOS: Open, with areas of specialization that might reasonably be seen as falling under the PPE umbrella (e.g. political philosophy, ethics, feminism, philosophy of race, philosophy of social science) are especially encouraged to apply. AOC: less an area of competence but still… a willingness and capacity to teach courses that cover aspects of political economy, public choice, and game theory is essential. Salary commensurate with qualifications. Applications from women and minorities are particularly welcome.
