Job: UNC Charlotte

Below is a job announcement from UNC Charlotte.  They asked that I post this here and encourage our members to consider applying.  It seems that they are open to someone who has been out a few years or even someone who has been recently tenured.  The announcement below is also found in Jobs for Philosophers.

40, *41. UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHARLOTTE, NC The Philosophy Department invites applications for an Assistant/Associate Professor, beginning August 2009. The area of specialization is open, but we have particular needs in Ancient Philosophy, Ethics/Applied Ethics, non-Western philosophy, or some combination of these areas. Teaching load: two courses per semester, undergraduate and graduate. Teaching experience appropriate to rank; Ph.D. required; publication appropriate to rank. Research and service interests that enhance our ability to pursue external grants are desirable.

UNC Charlotte is a rapidly growing doctoral-level state university located in a thriving urban area with a student body of more than 22,000 and a full-time faculty of over 750. The department currently has 13 full-time and 7 part-time faculty, including two Distinguished Professors. We offer a traditional and applied major, a Graduate Certificate in Applied Ethics, and an M.A. in Ethics and Applied Philosophy. Our M.A. is linked to a number of interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs on campus and we provide research ethics courses for many of them. So we have a strong tradition of interdisciplinary studies involving all seven of the University’s colleges. We are closely affiliated with UNC Charlotte’s Center for Professional and Applied Ethics, where the successful candidate is expected to be an active faculty associate.
