Position Summary: The Department of Philosophy in the School of History, Philosophy and Religion invites applications for one or more fixed-term, non-tenure-track, full/part-time Instructor positions to teach on a term by term basis for the 2014-2015 academic year. Some of these appointments may be renewed or transition to an instructional position on an annual basis at the discretion of the Director.

Instructors may be needed to teach on campus or ecampus courses in the following areas: World Religions, World Views & Environmental Values, Logic, and may include other areas of philosophy and religious studies.

The School of History, Philosophy, and Religion offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in History and Philosophy. The School also offers four unique certificate programs allowing students to tailor their education to fit their needs. The certificates offered are in Applied Ethics, Medical Humanities, Peace Studies, and Religion and Culture.

History and Philosophy may also be used as a major and/or minor in the Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (MAIS) degree program, or as a minor in other graduate programs.

The Department of Philosophy's emphasis on Engaged Philosophy offers alternatives to the ways we currently understand ourselves and our relationship with nature within a technologically complex global economy. To support that effort, the Department sponsors such programs as The Spring Creek Project that focuses on the links between environmental philosophy, literature, and culture.

The Hundere Endowed Chair of Religion and Culture that initiates and sponsors numerous programs that provide alternative understandings of historical and contemporary religious and spiritual policymakers and leaders in resource management, on the impact of economic growth, and traditions of social progress on the environment; and Philosophy's annual IDEAS MATTER Public Lecture Series, provides an ongoing forum for the discussion of citizenship in the new century.
