The Center for Ethics and Public Affairs at the Murphy Institute at Tulane University invites applications for Visiting Research Professorships/resident Faculty Fellowships for the 2017-2018 academic year. All applications must apply via Interfolio. Application is free of charge for all applicants, whether they already have an Interfolio account or not, as long as the link is used.

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. 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. As Visiting Research Professors, they receive a salary of 65,000 USD and are eligible for Tulane University health insurance.


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. Full-time faculty at all ranks are invited to apply.

Application Instructions

Required application materials include the completed fellowship application form, curriculum vitae, project description with bibliography, scholarly paper, and two confidential letters of recommendation. Applicants must apply via Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/37091.

Applying for this position via Interfolio is free of charge. If you already have an Interfolio account, you should begin by clicking the link above, rather than logging in to your Interfolio account. For more information on how to apply via Interfolio, please see JobApplicant’s Guide to ByCommittee Faculty Search.

Tulane University is an equal employment opportunity/affirmative action/persons with disabilities/veterans employer committed to excellence through diversity. Tulane will not discriminate against individuals with disabilities or veterans. All eligible candidates are encouraged to apply.

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.
