Gezocht: Universitair Docent Continentale Filosofie (20-8, Tilburg)
The Philosophy Department at Tilburg University seeks to appoint an outstanding continental philosopher at the level of Assistant Professor (Dutch: Universitair Docent).
Alongside principal teaching responsibilities, successful candidates will be expected to grow their good reputation in research and participate in valorization activities. The position involves a substantive teaching task, with courses to be taught at both Bachelor and Master levels. An important portion of these tasks involves teaching philosophy classes to large groups of non-philosophy students (at Bachelor level). Teaching responsibilities and (small) service or management tasks will constitute 60-65 percent of the position workload, which, depending on the size of the groups, comes to 4-5 courses per year. The candidates are expected to acquire a University Teaching Qualification (Dutch: BKO). Given the Department’s overall teaching needs, societal embeddedness and responsibilities, being able to speak Dutch at native speaking level is a strict requirement. Teaching responsibilities require the successful candidate to have an excellent command of the English language. It is welcomed if the candidate is prepared to move to (the vicinity of) Tilburg.
Profile of the candidates
Area of Specialization (AoS): continental philosophy
Given the overall needs of the department in teaching and research, we seek to appoint a candidate whose research interests are firmly embedded in, or at least lean towards the so-called ‘continental tradition’. Candidates can have expertise in anything ranging from modern to contemporary continental philosophy. It speaks for the candidates if they are interested in non-mainstream domains (e.g., feminist philosophy) while also having an openness to what other disciplines can contribute to philosophy. The ability and willingness to communicate about one’s research to people outside one’s own specialization or philosophical orientation is crucial.
Area of Competence (AoC): social philosophy and ethics.
The successful candidate will teach on their own AoS in our MA and BA program. The successful candidate will also teach courses in social philosophy and (business) ethics, both in the Philosophy BA and in service teaching (i.e. philosophy courses for students in other BA programs).
