The Yale University Department of Philosophy has a possible opening for a one-course one-semester visitor for the Spring of 2011. The ideal applicant would be in a position to teach a mid-sized (75-100 student) lecture course in Philosophy of Physics, though we may consider applications from candidates who are prepared to teach a similarly-sized lecture course in another area in Philosophy of Science or MEML that would complement our other curricular offerings. The course is currently scheduled to meet on MW 1:30-2:20, but the time/days could be altered if necessary.
Applicants MUST have a PhD in Philosophy (with defense no later than January 2011), and documented evidence of success in teaching.
Interested applicants should, at this time, send ONLY the following materials:
(1) a brief cover letter
(2) an academic CV that includes the names of 3 references
All materials should be sent to with the words “Visiting Lectureship” in the subject line. Review of applications will begin on August 9.
