The University of Chicago Law School seeks to appoint a Law and Philosophy Fellow for the academic year 2008-09. A Ph.D. in philosophy by time of appointment is expected, though in unusual cases a Ph.D. in a related discipline, or a J.D. accompanied by strong training in philosophy, will be considered. Applications also welcome from post-2003 doctorates. Law degree (J.D. or foreign equivalent) is helpful, but not required. The Fellow's research should intersect with issues of interest to legal scholars. Examples would include work on normative concepts such as equality and punishment; investigation of the philosophical dimensions of a substantive area of law, such as criminal law, constitutional law, sex equality, or property; research that bears on the legal dimensions of intention, proof, or agency; and work in jurisprudence. The Fellow will be expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School, pursue his or her research, and participate in teaching the Law and Philosophy Workshop or a seminar. Teaching duties are modest and will contribute to the Fellow's research. Salary 50K + benefits + superb research environment.
