        Subject: 3 year LTA job at Dalhousie in Ethics and Computing

Hi Folks,

This is a pretty niche-y area, so please circulate to all possible
candidates and any plausible list. We’ve just extended the original

The Department of Philosophy at Dalhousie University invites
applications from junior academics for an early-career, 3-year Limited
Term Appointment, effective July 1, 2021. This position is subject to
budgetary approval. Areas of specialization/competence: Ethics and
Computer Science.

The successful applicant will teach at introductory, intermediate and
advanced undergraduate/ graduate levels, with the possibility of some
limited graduate student supervision and committee work. Excellence in
teaching and research is required. A record of publication will be an
asset. Applicants must hold (or be about to receive) a Ph.D. in
Philosophy. Salary will depend upon qualifications and experience, in
accordance with the Dalhousie Faculty Association collective agreement.
The course load will be 3 and 3, with the possibility of course-release
for management of large, first-year classes.

Courses to be taught will include at least one section per year of
Philosophy 2490/Computer Science 3101 (Social, Ethical and Professional
Issues in Computing Science) and one other class in Philosophy, as well
as multiple sections of first-year Humanities classes in Computer
Science. Assignment of some Humanities teaching in other STEM
disciplines is possible. Preference will be given to candidates who
display the ability to convey the direct relevance and importance of
Ethics and other areas of Philosophy for hands-on work in Computer Science
