Full-time Lecturer in Philosophy

Case Western Reserve University seeks candidates for a Full-time Lecturer who will be housed in the Department of Philosophy to begin with the 2018-19 academic year. Candidates with research and teaching backgrounds in ethics from any discipline may apply. Designated as a Beamer-Schneider SAGES Fellow in Ethics, the lecturer will lead interdisciplinary, discussion-based, writing-intensive, seminar-style courses that contribute to students’ ethical formation and understanding of the history and practice of ethics. The lecturer will also lead a year-long, monthly professional development series on how to incorporate ethical learning into any SAGES class for SAGES faculty and instructors. Finally, the lecturer will assist the Beamer-Schneider Professorship in the coordination of its various Ethics Table activities (http://philosophy.case.edu/beamer-schneider-professorship/ethics-table/).

The SAGES Program, Seminar Approach to General Education and Scholarship (http://sages.case.edu/), has created this lectureship in association with the Beamer-Schneider Professorship in Ethics (http://philosophy.case.edu/beamer-schneider-professorship/). Candidates should become familiar with both programs and explain in their cover letter how their research and teaching align with the missions of both. In addition, candidates should explain how they might construct the professional development series.

Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D. by May 2018 and a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching. The research specialization of the candidate should be in ethics, with a good grasp of the history of ethics. The teaching load is 3/2. Initial appointment is for one academic year, with possible reappointment for up to two additional one-year periods.

Application materials (a letter of interest, a CV, and contact information for three references) should be submitted electronically to beamer-schneider2018@case.edu. To be assured of full consideration, candidates should submit their materials by January 30, 2018, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.
