The Department of Philosophy at Lawrence University invites applications for the Postdoctoral Fellow of Philosophy and Uihlein Fellow of Ethics to begin in September 2019. The successful candidate must be able to teach courses in ethics (broadly construed) that will complement existing department strengths and contribute to interdisciplinary programs on campus.

We encourage applications from individuals who will help us create a more inclusive Lawrence by: (1) further diversifying the faculty; and/or (2) demonstrating experience with successful diversity-related initiatives, creative activity or research; and (3) showing interest in developing inclusive pedagogy to address the needs of a diverse student body.
