Job description


The Philosophy Department at Stanford invites applications for an open rank, tenure track position for scholars who study race in American society. This search is part of a university-wide initiative in which Stanford seeks to hire as many as 10 strong researchers who study the significance of race in American society, including the nature and persistence of racial inequality and its consequences. Appointments may be made in the following schools and departments: Stanford Law School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford Graduate School of Education, and the following departments within the School of Humanities and Sciences: Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, History, and Religious Studies. Rank is open, although a majority of the appointments are expected to be made at the assistant professor level. At the senior level, we are particularly interested in candidates with an active program of research in progress and outstanding records of achievement in developing or using innovative approaches in the broad areas of their discipline. A strong commitment to excellent teaching is essential.

The Department of Philosophy seeks candidates from any area of philosophy whose work will illuminate issues related to race in America. Such areas include, but are not limited to, Philosophy of Race and Racism, Africana Philosophy, Latinx Philosophy, Indigenous Philosophy, Critical Race Theory, Social and Political Philosophy, and Philosophy of Law.

Applicants will be expected to teach four courses per year at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and perform the usual non-teaching duties. PhD prior to the appointment start date of 9/1/2021 is required. Please direct questions to Allison Freshwaters at [email protected].

Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2020 and will continue until all of the positions are filled. Senior candidates are invited to apply online via https://apply.interfolio.com/78736, with a cover letter describing academic background and teaching experience, a curriculum vitae, samples of recent scholarship and a research statement of no more than three pages. Junior candidates should apply online via https://apply.interfolio.com/78734 and arrange to have at least three letters of reference submitted directly online by October 15, 2020.
