Junior Faculty Fellowship in Ethics

Published on

Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business seeks applications for a Junior Faculty Fellowship in Ethics. As part of its mission to advance scholarship and the teaching of ethics in universities and professional schools, McDonough School of Business’s Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics offers Junior Faculty Fellowships in Ethics to new PhDs or recent PhDs in non-tenure track positions who wish to pursue a career teaching and researching applied ethics. The fellowship is a two-year term position.

We have at least one such opening for the 2019-2021 academic years. These fellowships are designed to provide the training and experience essential to becoming successful university-level teachers of applied ethics. GISME Junior Fellows teach two sections of an ethics course per year at MSB (or, with approval, in the philosophy department) and receive the support of Georgetown’s ethics faculty to produce quality scholarship during their time in residence. Fellows also participate in GISME’s academic symposia and its ongoing project to develop innovative tools and techniques to improve the teaching of applied and professional ethics. Fellows are required to produce at least one article of publishable quality during the term of the fellowship.

The fellowship is open to recent PhDs in normative disciplines such as philosophy, political science, and public policy, as well as to recent law graduates who hold a PhD in a cognate field. Compensation is highly competitive. Appointment is for the period August 1, 2019-July 31, 2021. Please send only a CV or resume and a cover letter describing one’s teaching and research interests to https://apply.interfolio.com/57730.

Deadline for applications is February 15, 2019.
