Applications are invited for the Baier Chair in Early Modern Philosophy at the University of Otago.
Candidates should have demonstrated outstanding research and teaching strengths in Early Modern (17th and 18th century) Philosophy. As well as being actively engaged in research, the successful applicant will be expected to teach core undergraduate papers in Early Modern Philosophy and to supervise research students at honours and postgraduate levels in this area. Many current graduate students come from outside New Zealand and an appointment that will attract graduate students to Otago is valued.
The Philosophy Department lies squarely in the tradition of analytic philosophy, broadly construed. It was the highest ranked department in any discipline in New Zealand in the last two governmental Performance Based Research Funding assessments.
For more information on the Department, including papers taught and staff research interests, see:
