MOVING TO FRONT (originally posted February 8)
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 2008 (or thereafter). (For schools outside the US, please list new Lecturers who are on presumptively permanent appointments--not temporary lecturers.) Like last 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 (fictional):
John Smith (Chicago) hired by Kenyon College. AOS: 19th-Century Philosophy. Previously Visiting Assistant Professor at Marquette University.
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
