Wyoming Catholic College is seeking a philosopher who would enjoy teaching non-majors in a highly interdisciplinary environment. The ideal candidate will not only have a Ph.D. in philosophy and be rooted in the Thomistic-Aristotelian tradition, but will also have an active interest in the philosophy of mathematics and natural science and be attentive to the philosophical implications of those fields. The ideal candidate would be conversant with higher level mathematics and be able to effectively engage key texts in scientific literature, while also having an ability to speak to non-scientists about science in a clear and exciting way, and possessing a background in the liberal arts. The ideal candidate will be familiar with WCC’s integrated curriculum, would enjoy teaching any class within WCC’s philosophy track and would be interested in teaching or co-teaching courses in WCC’s science and math sequence, at some future date. Given the integrated nature of the curriculum at WCC (where all students must take all courses), it is imperative that the prospective faculty member be willing to engage colleagues across the various curricular tracks and cultivate a genuine interest in all aspects of the curriculum.
The applicant should read and agree with the vision and mission of Wyoming Catholic College as articulated in the Philosophical Vision Statement and the Catalog. The letter of intent should communicate the applicant’s interest in teaching in accord with the vision outlined in those documents.
Faculty are typically required to teach a course load of 12 hours per week, to direct one or more theses, and to assist in some administrative duties. Faculty at WCC are committed to teaching and serving students as their first and foremost responsibility. Salary and benefits are competitive.
Wyoming Catholic College welcomes applications for this position regardless of the applicant’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability. A letter of intent, curriculum vitae, the response essay, and three names of academic reference (letters will be requested at a later date) should be sent to the Academic Dean, Kyle Washut, Wyoming Catholic College, 306 Main St., Lander, WY 82520, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will begin reviewing applications this fall. For full consideration, please submit an application before December of 2020.
