Two Postdoctoral Fellowships in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, Virginia Tech

The Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) at Virginia Tech, housed in the Department of Philosophy, seeks two Postdoctoral Fellows in any area of PPE, however with a strong preference for the philosophy of the social sciences (in particular the philosophy of economics) and/or the history of moral, political, and economic thought.

The successful candidates will have a promising interdisciplinary research agenda that allows collaboration with the program’s core faculty. The Fellows are expected to teach one course per semester and participate actively in the PPE Program. A Ph.D. in Philosophy (or closely related fields) is required at the time of appointment. The initial appointments are made for one year, but the positions are renewable for up to three years (depending on funding and satisfactory performance). The starting date for the positions is August 10, 2017, pending final budgetary approval.
