GRINNELL COLLEGE – DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY (19TH & 20TH CENTURY CONTINENTAL PHILOSOPHY) – TENURE-TRACK POSITION (START FALL 2014)
GRINNELL COLLEGE. Tenure-track position in the Department of Philosophy (AOS: 19th and 20th Century Continental Philosophy; AOC: Open), starting Fall 2014. Assistant Professor (Ph.D.) preferred; Instructor (ABD) or Associate Professor possible. Grinnell College is a highly selective undergraduate liberal arts college; the Philosophy Department values the history of philosophy and is committed to representing both the Anglo-American and the Continental traditions of philosophy. The College’s curriculum is founded on a strong advising system and close student-faculty interaction, with few college-wide requirements beyond the completion of a major. The teaching schedule of five courses over two semesters will include an intermediate-level survey of 19th-century Continental philosophy, intermediate-level courses in 20th-century Continental philosophy, advanced seminars in the candidate’s area of specialization, and ahistorically oriented introduction to philosophy course; every few years one course will be Tutorial (a writing/critical thinking course for first-year students, oriented toward a special topic of the instructor’s choice).
In letters of application, candidates should discuss their interest in developing as a teacher and scholar in an undergraduate, liberal arts college that emphasizes close student-faculty interaction. They should also discuss how they might contribute to a college community that has diversity—of people, personal and educational experiences, and disciplinary perspectives—as one of its core values. To be assured of full consideration, all application materials should be received by November 15, 2013.
