The Center for Ethics at the Murphy Institute at Tulane University invites applications for three Faculty Fellowships/Visiting Research Professorships for the 2024-2025 academic year. These fellowships are available to support outstanding faculty whose teaching and research focus on ethics; political and social philosophy; moral psychology, agency and responsibility; philosophy of law; political theory; or questions of moral choice in areas such as (but not restricted to) business, government, law, economics, public health and medicine.

While fellows will participate in seminars, lectures, and conferences organized by the Murphy Institute, they will be expected to devote most of their time to conducting their research.  

Faculty Fellows are appointed as Visiting Research Professors at Tulane University’s Murphy Institute, receive a salary of $70,000, and are eligible for faculty benefits, including medical insurance. Faculty Fellows enjoy the use of private faculty offices and receive assistance from the Murphy Institute staff and graduate assistants. The Murphy Institute’s Center for Ethics is one of the most active in the country, hosting fourteen guest speakers and sponsoring several international conferences each year. 



Applicants must hold a doctorate in philosophy, political theory, law, political economy, economics, public health, or a related discipline at the time of application. Applicants must also hold a full-time college or university appointment at the time of application. Faculty Fellowships are open to full-time faculty at all ranks.
