Assistant Professor of Philosophy

The Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) invites applications for a tenure-track position in philosophy, beginning Fall 2018. The appointment will be at the assistant professor level; however, exceptionally well-qualified applicants at higher levels may also be considered. Areas of specialization and competence are open; however, we are looking for candidates whose research is informed by the empirical or mathematical sciences. This includes areas traditionally within the philosophy of science, but it also includes research in other philosophical areas (e.g. ethics or political philosophy) that employs empirical or formal methods, or that draws on scientific research. We are seeking highly qualified candidates who are committed to a career in research and teaching. The term of an untenured initial appointment is four years and is contingent upon completion of the Ph.D. degree.

Interested candidates should apply electronically at: Applications should include a cover letter, research statement, CV, teaching statement, three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample. Candidates unable to apply electronically may send their application packet to: Chair, Philosophy Search, HSS 101-40 Caltech, Pasadena, CA 91125.

The deadline for applications is November 1, 2017.
