Professorship & Position as Department Chair in Philosophy, Charlotte NC (U.S.A.)

Chair, Department of Philosophy, UNC Charlotte


 The Department of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at
 Charlotte seeks an outstanding senior scholar as Department Chair.
 The area of teaching and research is open.  Candidates must have: 1) a
 doctoral degree in philosophy; 2) an academic record appropriate for
 appointment with tenure in a Philosophy Department; and 3) a
 commitment to promote diversity as a value in the department, college
 and university.  While formal administrative experience is preferred,
 applications from candidates whose work experience has prepared them
 to do administrative work will be welcomed.  Credentials appropriate
 for appointment at the level of Full Professor are preferred, and a
 record of success in securing extramural funding is highly desirable.

 The Department offers a major and minor, a Graduate Certificate in
 Applied Ethics, and an M.A. in Ethics and Applied Philosophy.  Our
 department has connections to other units across the university, both
 at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and we are closely
 affiliated with UNC Charlotte's Center for Professional and Applied
 Ethics, with which the Chair will be expected to collaborate regularly
 for campus events and initiatives. The Department is committed to an
 intertraditional approach to philosophy, growth in the major and
 graduate programs, and strong practical and engaged research.  The
 ideal Chair will embrace and augment those commitments. (For more
 information on the Department, including its vision for
 intertraditionality, see our website:
