The Johns Hopkins Department of Philosophy seeks two or more philosophers of outstanding international reputation (if senior) or outstanding promise (if junior) to fill positions at the rank of tenured Professor, tenured Associate Professor, or (beginning or advanced) tenure-track Assistant Professor. Applications are welcomed and encouraged in all areas of specialization.
William H. Miller's transformative $75 million pledge to the Philosophy Department reflects his lifelong appreciation of the discipline, and his gift seeks to establish the Johns Hopkins Philosophy Department as one of the world's leading departments. These additions will continue a major expansion of the Department, resulting in at least nine new positions during the next several years.
The Department is conducting a broad and inclusive search and is committed to identifying candidates who through their research, teaching, and service will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.
Applications may be submitted through Interfolio at <https://apply.interfolio.com/54124>.
Applications for a tenured position should include a cover letter or research statement, a CV, and a teaching statement. They should not include letters of recommendation; nor should the CV list references.
Applications for a tenure-track position should include a cover letter, CV, dissertation abstract or research statement, a writing sample, a teaching dossier including a teaching statement and further evidence of teaching experience, and three confidential letters of recommendation.
The search will remain open until the positions are filled; however, in order to receive full consideration in the first round, applications should reach the department by October 26, 2020. Any questions about the search process should be directed to Alicia Burley at <email@example.com>.
