The area of competence (AOC) is open, but the department is especially interested in those with teaching competence in Gender Theory, History of Philosophy, Social/Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Law, and Logic.

We are looking for someone who has a broad pluralistic orientation that encompasses a variety of perspectives, which must include being well-versed in approaches from within the analytic tradition.

Expectations of teaching include introductory, middle-level, and advanced undergraduate courses, graduate teaching in the area of specialization, mentoring of graduate student research, and directing theses at the undergraduate and graduate level. The University of Oregon is on the academic quarter system, and the standard teaching load is presently five courses across three terms each year.

Undergraduate teaching experience, an appropriate record of research and publication, and a Ph.D. are required. Salary will be competitive depending on qualifications.

The Department is pluralistic, with an expansive view of the discipline, and provides an intellectual climate conducive to multidisciplinary scholarship. We encourage applications from candidates sharing this perspective. We also seek candidates with a commitment to working effectively with students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds.

The University of Oregon is located in Eugene, Oregon, 110 miles south of Portland and about an hour’s drive from the Pacific coast and the Cascade mountains.
