(Tenure-track) Assistant Professorship in Theoretical Philosophy, Vienna, AUSTRIA


 (philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, epistemology, metaphysics, 
and philosophical logic, as well as historical studies pertaining to these 

 The Department of Philosophy in the Faculty of Cultural and Social 
Sciences at the University of Salzburg seeks applications for a 
tenure-track position in theoretical philosophy. The appointment will be 
made within the Austrian A2 salary scheme, initial salary being at least ? 
56,485 per year. The starting date is 1 October 2014.

 The Department of Philosophy in Salzburg takes an analytic and 
interdisciplinary approach to philosophy. The theoretical philosophy unit 
will be led by Professor Christopher Gauker (presently at the University 
of Cincinnati). Charlotte Werndl (presently at the London School of 
Economics) has been appointed to the professorship for logic and 
philosophy of science. A third professor is expected to be appointed 
within the next few years. In affiliation with each of these positions, 
the department expects to add a tenure-track assistant professorship as 
well as a post-doctoral fellowship. The appointee will join a newly 
vibrant department. There will be invited speakers, longer-term visitors, 
conferences, and workshops.

 Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in philosophy by the start of the 
appointment. Interdisciplinary inclinations, publications in leading 
journals, and activity in the international philosophical community will 
be advantageous. The primary responsibilities of the appointee will be 
research and teaching in theoretical philosophy (philosophy of language, 
philosophy of mind, epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophical logic, as 
well as historical studies pertaining to these topics). The initial 
teaching load is four hours per semester before tenure and eight hours 
after tenure. The appointee will also be expected to supervise Ph.D. and 
Masters students, to initiate research projects and to assist in 

 The appointment is initially for six years. After between four and six 
years, the appointee will undergo a tenure review and, if successful, will 
be offered a tenured position as Associate Professor. (Professionally more 
advanced appointees may be considered for tenure even earlier.) 
Expectations for tenure will be agreed to informally prior to appointment 
and will be contractually agreed to immediately after the start of 
employment. For candidates coming from educational systems where a 
habilitation is normal, the completion of a habilitation within four years 
will be one of the normal expectations. Other arrangements can be 

 Written and spoken competence in English is required. Fluency in German is 
not mandatory at the time of application. However, the appointee will be 
expected to teach in German from the third year of the appointment 
onwards, and therefore prior familiarity with the German language will be 
an advantage. Masters and Ph.D. courses can be taught in English, but 
undergraduate courses are usually taught in German.

 The application should include a cover letter addressing the applicant?s 
academic background and research interests, a CV, a list of publications, 
a research plan, writing samples totaling no more than 20,000 words, a 
list of courses taught and evidence of teaching effectiveness (syllabi, 
teaching statement, summary course evaluations if available; no more than 
20 pages). Letters of recommendation should not be sent. On-line 
interviews are expected to take place in March 2014.

 Applications should be sent by surface or air mail, postmarked by February 
12, 2014, to: Univ.- Prof. Heinrich Schmidinger, Rektor, Universit?t 
Salzburg, Serviceeinrichtung Personal, Kapitelgasse 4, 5020 Salzburg, 
Austria.  Please include the job reference number GZ A 0007/1-2014 in your 

 The University of Salzburg and the Department of Philosophy especially 
encourage applications from women. Given equal qualification, female 
scholars will be preferred. Physically challenged individuals are also 
especially encouraged to apply.
