Wesleyan University (CT) - TT Assistant Professor of Letters (Aesthetics; Continental Philosophy - 17-19th c.; Contemporary Theory)Edit

Area of specialization: aesthetics; continental philosophy

Area of competence: history of philosophy (17th-19th centuries); philosophy of art; philosophy of history; familiarity with contemporary theory

Wesleyan University’s College of Letters invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Letters beginning July 1, 2017. The College of Letters is an interdisciplinary major in predominantly European literature, history, and philosophy. Team teaching of material from all three disciplines over the period from antiquity to the present is required. Broad literary and historical interests are thus essential. Expertise in a foreign language of European origin is required. The teaching load is 2/2. Additional duties include advising and mentoring students, carrying on a program of research, and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university level. Wesleyan is a highly selective liberal arts college that values both scholarship and teaching very highly, has a strong, diverse undergraduate student body, and offers a generous sabbatical program and competitive salaries and benefits.

We seek a scholar specializing in aesthetics in the continental tradition of philosophy and who can also teach the history of philosophy from the 17th-19th centuries. The candidate should show interest in bridging the conceptual and the concrete through familiarity with actual objects of aesthetic experience. Candidates must be committed to contributing to the design and teaching of an interdisciplinary curriculum in the humanities. A Ph.D. in Philosophy or relevant field that is complete or very near completion is expected by the time of appointment.

To apply, visit http://careers.wesleyan.edu/postings/5624. A complete application includes a cover letter, curriculum vitae, the email addresses of three referees from whom we will obtain confidential letters of recommendation, a thesis abstract, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and a chapter-length writing sample. As part of the teaching statement (or cover letter), we invite you to describe your cultural competencies and experiences engaging a diverse student body. Applications should be submitted online at http://careers.wesleyan.edu/postings/5624.

Applications received by November 18, 2016 are assured full consideration.
