The Center for Ethics and Public Affairs at the Murphy Institute at Tulane University invites applications for three Visiting Research Professorships/Faculty Fellowships for the 2018-2019 academic year.
These fellowships are available to support outstanding faculty whose teaching and research focus on ethics, political philosophy, and political theory, or questions of moral choice in areas such as, but not restricted to, business, government, law, economics, and medicine.
While fellows will participate in conferences and seminars organized by the Murphy Institute, they will be expected to devote most of their time to conducting their own research. Faculty Fellows are normally appointed as Visiting Research Professors, receive a salary of $65,000, and are eligible for Tulane faculty benefits, including health insurance.
The application deadline is December 31, 2017.
Applicants should hold a doctorate or equivalent research degree in philosophy, political theory, or a related discipline at the time of application. Applicants should also have a full-time college or university appointment at the time of application. Faculty Fellowships are open to full-time faculty at all ranks.
Applicants must apply via Interfolio. Applying for this position is free for all applicants, whether they have previously used Interfolio or not.
Required application materials include the curriculum vitae, a project description of approximately 1500 words accompanied by a bibliography, a scholarly paper, and two confidential letters of recommendation.
