Position Summary The Department of Philosophy and Classics at the University of Regina invites applications for a two-year term position in philosophy at the rank of Assistant Professor.

The anticipated date of commencement is 1 July 2019.

The successful candidate's responsibilities will include teaching five philosophy courses each year. Among these will be Introduction to Philosophy, Critical Thinking, and Knowledge and Reality. Ability to teach a wide range of courses in the context of a small department is an asset. We would particularly value candidates who could teach courses in ancient philosophy, 20th Century Analytic philosophy, epistemology, or metaphysics. Although the Department already has fairly good strengths in value theory and applied ethics, being able to teach courses in these areas would also be an asset.
Requirements The successful candidate will have a PhD in philosophy, or ABD with a firm completion date. Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated excellence in teaching at the university level.
