Position: Assistant Professor in Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy at Regis College invites applications for a tenure track position in Philosophy at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning August 1, 2018.

Area(s) of Specialization and Area(s) of Competence are open. However, the department seeks candidates who have a passion for undergraduate teaching and for academic advising; are interested in and familiar with integrative and experiential learning methods; and are interested in and familiar with Jesuit education. In addition to a passion for teaching and mentoring, and familiarity with diverse teaching practices, successful candidates can teach a wide variety of undergraduate courses and can contribute to a range of department obligations.

The standard teaching load (4:3 or 3:3) each semester includes the introductory philosophy course (PL 270), an upper-level philosophy course, and a core course (either the freshman writing seminar or an integrative core course). In addition to teaching, academic advising is an important part of a faculty member’s workload. Successful candidates have experience with advising; experience advising minority and first-generation students is preferred. Candidates also should have an active research agenda. While Regis values research (and a record of sustained scholarship is required for tenure), a commitment to good teaching and advising is essential.

About the Department

The Regis University philosophy department is housed in Regis College, a college which serves primarily traditional-age undergraduates. Students from across the university take philosophy courses, and all undergraduates in four of the colleges are required to take one introductory philosophy (PL 270) course as a core requirement. The philosophy department offers a major in Philosophy and two minors, one in Philosophy, and one in Ethics, Politics, and Society.

Through its course offerings, the philosophy department serves the needs of departments and programs, including: Peace and Justice Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Environmental Studies, History and Politics, Religious Studies, and the Philosophy of Law program.

All members of the philosophy department teach at least one section of Philosophical Explorations (PL 270) every semester, with 25-30 students enrolled. The course is designed to help students engage with the Jesuit question “How ought we to live?” In addition to teaching critical thinking and analytical writing, the course teaches critical reading, reflection on one’s work, and practices of discernment. While historical texts are used, the emphasis is on learning how to do close reading of a text and how to engage deeply with a thinker on a question that has contemporary significance, rather than on learning a survey of ideas from a range of canonical thinkers. Successful candidates will demonstrate familiarity with teaching critical reading and close textual engagement along with teaching the critical thinking and analytical writing that is typical in an introductory course.

The philosophy department contributes significantly to the three cores in Regis College. Information about the three cores can be found here:

http://www.regis.edu/RC/Academics/Core-Studies.aspx

Applicants should specifically address the ways in which they would be able to contribute to each core. Additionally, applicants should highlight any teacher training they have received which involves teaching writing.

The philosophy department is committed to integrative learning, service learning, and various forms of experiential and community-based learning. Integrative learning, as emphasized in the integrative core, involves integrating theory and praxis, academia with the community, mind and heart, action and reflection, and knowledge and approaches from different disciplines. Service learning, when done successfully, involves ongoing weekly service that is deeply integrated into the course curriculum. Successful candidates will have experience with at least some of these innovative teaching pedagogies. Applicants should highlight any teacher training they have received which involves innovative teaching pedagogies such as these.

More information about the Regis University philosophy department can be found here:

http://www.regis.edu/philosophy

About Regis College

Regis College, one of the five colleges in Regis University in Denver, Colorado, is a Jesuit liberal arts institution in the Catholic tradition with a primary emphasis on excellence in undergraduate teaching and cura personalis. Education at Regis University is centered around Jesuit values and is guided by pursuit of the question “How ought we to live?” More information about Jesuit values and the Jesuit mission of Regis University can be found here:

http://www.regis.edu/About-Regis-University/JesuitEducated/Key-Jesuit-Va...

The philosophy department is committed to Regis University’s Jesuit mission and integrates aspects of the Jesuit mission into much of what it does. Applicants should demonstrate an interest and ability to engage the Catholic intellectual tradition and Jesuit liberal arts educational mission substantively in their teaching.

In accordance with its Jesuit Catholic mission, Regis University is committed to maintaining a humane atmosphere in which the civil rights of every individual are recognized and respected. At Regis the word diversity conveys our commitment to create and maintain an inclusive community where people of different religions, gender, sexual orientation, races, classes, and any other social distinctions can thrive in a learning environment characterized by mutual respect and the pursuit of justice. Within this context, we encourage application from historically underrepresented groups and seek applicants who demonstrate a commitment to the university's mission.

How to apply:

Candidates must have a Ph.D. by August 1, 2018.

To apply, please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and statement of teaching philosophy. Please do not send recommendation letters, academic transcripts, or writing sample unless specifically requested.

Only applications received by October 15 will receive full consideration. Semi-finalists will be contacted by the end of December and asked to submit further application materials and a statement in response to the Regis University mission.
