Tenure-track hiring by Philosophy Departments, 2005-06
MOVING TO THE FRONT (originally posted March 12)
It's that time of year again...I am opening comments on this thread for people to post news about junior, tenure-track hires in philosophy departments, i.e., hires made during this year of new assistant professors who will be starting in fall 2005. This year, you may also post information about post-doc appointments, since there are an increasing number of those in philosophy, many quite attractive. No anonymous posts will be allowed. The candidates themselves, dissertation advisors, placement directors, department chairs, or faculty members involved with the hiring or the placement of the candidate may all post information. No hearsay, however: you must have first-hand knowledge of the placement. (Please e-mail me about any errors.)
The format of the postings should be as follows: candidate's name (name of PhD-granting school) hired by [name of school]. AOS: ________; any prior positions (e.g., a postdoc, a lectureship, a visiting asst prof position). In the case of a post-doc, it should say not 'hired by' but 'post-doc at' [name of school].
Here's an example of which I have first-hand knowledge:
Jessica Berry (Texas) hired by Georgia State University. AOS: 19th-Century Philosophy; previously Assistant Professor of Philosophy (tenure-track), University of North Carolina at Wilmington and Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy, College of William & Mary. (GSU gets credit for quick updating of its web site!)
Remember: tenure-track jobs and postdocs only. I'll move this thread to the front at various intervals until it looks like the hiring season has wound down. Please post only once; postings should appear within 24 hours.
