Assistant/Associate Tenure Track, Philosophy of Law at McMaster University - Canada

The Department of Philosophy at McMaster University seeks to hire a philosopher of law at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, Tenure Track. The department will also consider social or political philosophers whose research forefronts law and legal institutions. We understand philosophy of law broadly to include not only general jurisprudence but also philosophical work focused on particular areas of law, including, but not limited to: constitutional law, criminal law, contract law, discrimination law, human rights law, international law, labor law, property law, and tort law. We are especially interested in scholars with expertise in feminist jurisprudence, Indigenous law, or the law as it relates to race. The normal teaching load in the Philosophy Department is 2 courses per term (4 per academic year), plus graduate supervision.

The successful applicant must demonstrate a record of excellence in teaching and research and a willingness and ability to: (1) contribute actively to the Department’s undergraduate program in Justice, Political Philosophy and Law; (2) supervise MA and PhD graduate students; (3) help build and sustain McMaster’s existing institutional connections through the Ontario Legal Philosophy Partnership, as well as its already strong working relationships with nearby law schools, and; (4) support the collegial atmosphere and intellectual life of the department. The successful applicant must have or be very near completion of a doctorate in philosophy or subject matter directly related to the position (e.g., law with a specialization in philosophy or political science with a specialization in political theory) by the time of the appointment.
