The Roger Mudd Center for Ethics welcomes applications for the 2017-2019 Mudd Center for Ethics Postdoctoral Fellowship. The successful candidate will be someone with normative research interests in moral or political philosophy, and whose work is relevant to ethical issues arising in public or professional life.

The successful candidate will be someone who has completed his or her Ph.D. by June of 2017, and who is no more than three years from the awarding of his or her degree (i.e., June of 2014) (though exceptions to this rule may be made in unusual circumstances). The appointment will be for two years, beginning on July 1, 2017 and ending on June 30, 2019.

Postdoctoral fellows will be expected to teach three undergraduate courses during the year, typically including a 100-level course in the fall, an upper-division course in the winter, and a third course in the fall, winter, or spring (chosen in consultation with the Director). We are currently in the process of developing and proposing a new undergraduate Minor in Ethics in Public and Professional Life, to which the postdoctoral fellow’s teaching would be expected to contribute. In addition, the Mudd Ethics Fellow will be expected to participate actively in Mudd Center activities and event planning, to interact with and advise undergraduates affiliated with the Mudd Center, and to help foster an interdisciplinary ethics community across the College of Liberal Arts, the Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics, and the School of Law.
