Job description

The Smith Institute for Political Economy and Philosophy at Chapman University seeks up to two two-year research associates (postdoctoral scholars), beginning in August 2019. Strong candidates in all areas will be considered. There is a preference for candidates with interests in the same areas as those of current members of the Faculty and, more generally, any candidate interested in pursuing work that cuts across disciplines of social sciences and humanities more broadly.

The Smith Institute houses scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, including philosophy, economics, and literature. Its mission is to reintegrate the study of the humanities and economics and to combine research and undergraduate education. Members of the institute are encouraged to pursue these aims by teaching innovative classes.

Research associates will be expected to teach one course per year. Candidates should have received their PhD (or equivalent) prior to beginning the position and should address in their cover letter how their research and teaching fit with the mission of the Smith Institute. We seek candidates with the ability to generate and publish research of the highest quality.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue on a rolling basis until March 1st, 2019 or until all positions are filled. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, writing sample, and three reference letters.

Inquiries can be submitted via email to smithinstituteoperations@gmail.com. Please use “Smith Institute Research Associate” in the email subject. Applications may be submitted via email to the same address, via the Chapman University website here.
