Pitzer College seeks applicants for a tenure-track position in Philosophy at the level of assistant professor.

In addition to teaching philosophy courses, the candidate would be expected to regularly teach a writing-intensive seminar for first-year students. For the successful applicant with the relevant interests, affiliations are possible with the intercollegiate departments of Environmental Analysis, Media Studies, Africana Studies, Asian American Studies, Chican@/Latin@ Studies, Data Science, and/or the Intercollegiate Feminist Center for Teaching, Research, and Engagement.

Pitzer College has a strong institutional commitment to diversity and strongly encourages candidates from underrepresented groups. We favor candidates who can contribute to the College's distinctive educational objectives, which promote interdisciplinary perspectives, intercultural understanding, and a concern with social justice and the ethical implications of knowledge and action. Pitzer College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.

A complete application will include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, selected evidence of excellence in teaching, a research statement, writing sample, and three letters of recommendation. Candidates should also submit a statement in which they address how their cultural, experiential, and/or academic background contributes to the understanding of diversity at the college.

The deadline for applications is October 9, 2023.
