The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE) invites applications and nominations of persons to serve as its Executive Director. APPE welcomes applications by candidates from a variety of backgrounds, including scholars, teachers, professionals, and non-profit administrators. The successful candidate will have a demonstrated interest in ethics, an aptitude for non-profit administration, broad intellectual curiosity, and enthusiasm for convening scholars and practitioners across many fields of practical and professional ethics.
The Executive Director’s primary responsibilities will be to APPE, but the Director will also provide limited service to DePauw University. Duties at DePauw will vary depending on the candidate’s relevant academic and/or professional background. Someone with an academic background might contribute by teaching 1-2 courses annually; someone with a professional background might teach 1-2 skills-oriented courses as a professor of practice, or contribute to the co-curricular life at DePauw University by conducting a series of workshops.
As part of the Association’s arrangement with DePauw University, the Executive Director will be eligible for all DePauw University employee benefits. This is a non-tenure-track position and salary will be commensurate with experience. The Association’s offices are located at the Prindle Institute for Ethics. The Executive Director will report to the Association’s Executive Board and to the Director of the Prindle Institute for ethics with respect to those functions relevant to DePauw service.
Application materials should include a letter of application, describing the applicant’s interests, background, and administrative experience/aptitude; a curriculum vitae or resumé; and the names of three references. Review of applications will begin May 1 and continue until the position is filled, though applications received by May 15 will receive greater consideration. Applicants should be prepared to assume the directorship on or before July 1, 2021.
