Concordia: tenure-track position in philosophy of science

Concordia University (Montreal) seeks applications for a tenure-track position in philosophy of science. I have decided to post this ad here, even though they have a preference for someone working in the philosophy of biology.

The Department of Philosophy at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, invites applications for one tenure-track position with specialisation in philosophy of science. The Department is currently extending its graduate programs and research profile, which includes strengths in the history of philosophy of science and evolutionary epistemology. We are interested in candidates whose research links these two areas. A research concentration in the philosophy of biology may be an advantage.

Applications must consist of a cover letter, a current CV, copies of recent publications, a statement of teaching philosophy/interests, a statement of research achievements and plans, and evidence of teaching effectiveness. Candidates must also arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to:

Dr. David Morris, Chair, Department of Philosophy
Concordia University
1455 De Maisonneuve Blvd. West
Montreal, Quebec Canada H3G 1M8

Subject to budgetary approval, we anticipate filling this position, normally at the rank of Assistant Professor, for July 1, 2011. Candidates should have a PhD. Normal teaching load for an active researcher is 2/2. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. All applications should reach the Department no later than November 1, 2010. All inquiries should be directed to Dr. Morris ( For additional information, please visit our website at

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. Concordia University is committed to employment equity.
