Faculty Fellowships 2018-2019

October 10, 2018

The Center for Ethics and Public Affairs at the Murphy Institute at Tulane University invites applications for three Visiting Research Professorships/Faculty Fellowships for the 2019-2020 academic year.

These fellowships are available to support outstanding faculty whose teaching and research focus on ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of law, moral psychology, agency and responsibility,  political theory, or questions of moral choice in areas such as, but not restricted to, business, government, law, economics, and medicine.

While fellows will participate in conferences and seminars organized by the Murphy Institute, they will be expected to devote most of their time to conducting their own research. Faculty Fellows are normally appointed as Visiting Research Professors, receive a salary of $65,000, and are eligible for Tulane faculty benefits, including health insurance.

The application deadline is December 30, 2018.

Qualifications

Applicants should hold a doctorate or equivalent research degree in philosophy, political theory, or a related discipline at the time of application. Applicants should also have a full-time college or university appointment at the time of application. Faculty Fellowships are open to full-time faculty at all ranks.

Application Instructions

Required application materials include a cover letter, a  curriculum vitae, a project description of approximately 1500 words accompanied by one-page bibliography, a scholarly paper, and two confidential letters of recommendation.

Applicants should submit their materials via Interfolio.  We expect to post the  Interfolio link for applications by Friday, October 17, 2018.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), the Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
