Job Opportunities
Philosophy Faculty- University of Mary

The University of Mary in Bismarck, ND invites applications for two full-time faculty positions, one in metaphysics and one in ethics to begin Fall 2023. AOS and rank are open.

All faculty are expected to demonstrate a willingness to support and advance the Christian, Catholic, and Benedictine mission and identity of the University of Mary (see https://www.umary.edu/about/mission-identity).

Metaphysics

At the University of Mary, Metaphysics is a required course for both our philosophy majors and minors.  The philosophy program seeks a philosopher to teach this course regularly with energy, rigor, depth, scope, and wisdom.

We welcome the opportunity to work with a philosopher whose specialty lies outside metaphysics.  However, the AOC is firmly within metaphysics, since our need is for someone who will relish teaching this course.  Other desirable characteristics include expertise in philosophy of science or other STEM fields, expertise on the relations between faith and reason, or competence in medieval philosophy or some other historical area.

Ethics

At the University of Mary, Ethics is a required course for all students.  We are looking for a philosopher who can offer a transformative ethics course that is grounded in the Aristotelian-Thomistic tradition.  By “transformative,” we mean a course that provides students with resources for becoming good and living well, as these terms are understood by the Aristotelian-Thomistic tradition. The philosophy program seeks a philosopher who will enjoy teaching this course regularly.

Nevertheless, given the need for a rigorous and attractive approach to ethics, we are looking for at least a strong AOC in ethics.  Other desirable characteristics include expertise on the relations between faith and reason or competence in political philosophy.

Qualifications and Requirements Include:

  • Ph.D. in Philosophy by time of employment
  • Ability to teach Introduction to Philosophy, Ethics, and Philosophy of the Human Person for the University’s Core Curriculum
  • Commitment to supporting formation outside the classroom
  • Upholds and supports the Christian, Catholic, Benedictine mission of the University of Mary
  • Supports the ongoing implementation of Ex Corde Ecclesiae, the apostolic constitution on Catholic colleges and universities
  • Builds a culture of ready and earnest hospitality in the School of Arts and Sciences and throughout the university, in accord with Saint Benedict’s admonition that all be received as Christ

The University of Mary is a private, Christian, Catholic, Benedictine university that welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds. Infusing Benedictine values throughout the educational experience, Mary offers distinguished, professionally-focused academic programs enlivened by the liberal arts, global and civic service, robust internships, and mentoring by respected faculty. As one of the most affordable private universities in the nation, Mary offers exceptional educational value as well as outstanding scholarship and financial aid opportunities.
