MOVING TO FRONT FROM APRIL 11: Unfortunately, there was some miscommunication with CUNY regarding this appointment. Professor Priest writes with the following clarification: "I have accepted a full time position at CUNY, starting in September 2009. However, I will not be moving there full time immediately. For the years 2009-10 and 2010-11 I will work half the year at CUNY and half the year at Melbourne. Both institutions have agreed to the appropriate leave to make this possible. I intend to maintain my position at St Andrews, but the appropriate arrangements for these two years still need to be negotiated."
Graham Priest (logic, philosophical logic) at the University of Melbourne has accepted appointment as Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, to start in September 2009. He will continue to be quarter-time at the Arche Center at the University of St. Andrews, but will be teaching both terms each year at CUNY.
UPDATE: Philosopher Matt Burstein writes: "Did CUNY both give him and not give him a contract?"
