ECNU grad programs, job openings, and Intercultural Center

I pass on this message from Paul D’Ambrosio of East China Normal University, concerning ECNU’s English-language MA and PhD programs; job openings at ECNU, and their new Intercultural Center.

Firstly, I would like to remind everyone about our English-language MA and PhD programs at ECNU. One of the unique features of our program is that students in our classes are split, about 50-50, Chinese and foreign. This makes for an exceptional teaching environment.

Adjunct Lecturer needed at Fairfield

This is of interest only to those in the New York/New England area. I’m on an administrative rotation with a reduced teaching load so my department needs someone to teach the Confucianism course this coming Fall. It’s about 20-25 students. A suitably experienced candidate might also be able to pick up a general introduction to philosophy course as well (also 20-25 students). There may also be another course in Spring 2013 — a course called “Asian Philosophies.” And, fyi, I do have another year on the rotation after next year so we’ll likely need someone then as well…

Postdoc in Asian Philosophy at Melbourne

Laura Schroeter of the philosophy department at Melbourne (and fellow Univ. of Michigan doctoral program alum!) writes that their one-year postdoc position is still open for applications (deadline is June 17) and they encourage qualified specialists in Asian Philosophy to apply. According to Laura, “The position involves teaching an Asian phil survey course (probably around 40 students) and a small 4th year undergrad seminar (5-15 students), and runs from July 2012-July 2013. It’s funded through some research money of Graham Priest’s, and Graham may want some minor admin help. But basically it’s a low-teaching postdoc position.  We’re mainly interested in getting someone who’s good to talk philosophy with.” So, if you’re within something like a 5-year period since you’ve finished your doctoral degree, consider applying to spend a year in Australia with some good philosophers. Below are the particulars for application, as they appeared in the Jobs for Philosophers ad.
