The Center for Ethics and Public Affairs encourages teaching and research on ethics, moral and political philosophy, and ethical issues in public life and the professions. Its resident Fellowships support outstanding teachers and scholars who wish to develop their ability to address pressing questions in these fields.
The Center for Ethics and Public Affairs at the Murphy Institute at Tulane University invites applications for residential Faculty Fellowships for the 2014-2015 academic year, and has extended the application deadline to February 15, 2014.
These fellowships are available to support outstanding faculty whose teaching and research focus on ethics, political philosophy, political theory, or questions of moral choice in areas such as, but not restricted to, business, government, law, economics, and medicine. Faculty Fellows are appointed as Visiting Research Professors, receive a salary of 60,000 USD, and are eligible for Tulane faculty benefits (including health insurance). Tulane University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
Required application materials include the completed fellowship application form, curriculum vitae, project description with bibliography, scholarly paper, and 2 reference letters.
Applicants must submit their materials via Academic Jobs Online website https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/3128 .
Fellows contribute to, and participate in, a twice monthly Center for Ethics and Public Affairs Faculty Seminar and have the opportunity to participate wide variety of academic events both at Tulane and the Murphy Institute. Most of their time, however, is devoted to their own research and writing.
Fellows are selected by external reviewers and members of the Center’s Faculty Committee. Applicants are judged on the basis of the quality of achievements in their field of specialization and ability to benefit from work in the Center, the contributions they are likely to make in the future through teaching and writing, and the probable significance of their proposed research and its relevance to the purpose of the Center. Applicants should hold a doctorate in philosophy, political science, political theory, or political economy (or a related discipline), or a professional, terminal degree in a field such business, law, or medicine, at the time of application. Applicants should also have a full-time college or university appointment at the time of application. Preference will be given to applicants at an early stage of their careers, normally no more than ten years from the terminal degree in their field. Center Faculty Fellowships are open to all faculty regardless of citizenship.
