Professorship in Philosophy of Science, Shanghai, CHINA


Professor of Philosophy of Science
New York University -NYU Shanghai

New York University Shanghai invites applications for a tenured or tenure 
track appointment with area of specialization in the philosophy of science 
or the history and philosophy of science. Candidates should hold the Ph.D. 
at the time of application. To ensure full consideration, applications 
should be submitted by October 1, 2013; applications received after that 
date may be reviewed until the position is filled. The expected starting 
date is August 1, 2014.

NYU Shanghai is the first Sino-US higher education joint venture to grant 
a degree that is accredited in the US as well as in China. A research 
university with liberal arts and sciences at its core, it resides in one 
of the world's great cities, which is also a vibrant intellectual 
community (http://shanghai.nyu.edu/). NYU Shanghai will recruit scholars 
who are committed to our global vision of transformative teaching and 
innovative research.

New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, 
with three degree granting campuses - New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi - 
complemented by 12 additional academic centers across five continents. 
Faculty and students circulate within the network in pursuit of common 
research interests and cross-cultural, interdisciplinary endeavors, both 
local and global.

The terms of employment in NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. 
institutions. Faculty may also spend time at NYU New York and other sites 
of the global network, engaging in both research and teaching 
opportunities. Tenure/tenure-track faculty will also be affiliated with 
the New York University Department of Philosophy and/or with other 
suitable academic units at NYU New York.

To apply, candidates should submit in PDF format a cover letter, 
curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, one or 
two writings samples, and the names and addresses of at least three 
references (for senior-level candidates) or at least three letters of 
recommendations (for junior-level candidates). Please visit our website at 
the Apply button below for additional instructions and other information 
on how to apply. If you have any questions, please e-mail
