The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (http://www.itb.itu.edu.tr) is looking for well qualified candidates in the following areas:

Social Thought, Social Theory, Social Philosophy

AND/OR

Art and Politics, Philosophy of Art, Aesthetics

The number of vacancies is subject to funding. In accordance with Turkish law, these positions are open to foreign (non-Turkish) nationals only.

Faculty members in the department are expected to teach courses as part of the undergraduate program Humanities and Social Science as well as the MA Program in Political Studies, and the Ph.D. Program in Political and Social Thought (http://www.siyaset.itu.edu.tr/english/). Thesis supervision and committee work is also expected. The language of instruction is English, and the teaching load is 3/2. Salaries are standard for the public sector in Turkey. Research and Conference Travel funds are available.

Minimum requirements for an Assistant Professor position are a doctorate in the relevant field from an institution of international standing, teaching experience and a publication record that includes a minimum of one ISI/AHCI journal article.

Candidates should send a letter of application, indicating their availability to visit the department in the event that they are short-listed for a position, as well as attaching a CV and a writing sample (max 5000 words). The deadline for applications is open, but we would hope to short list candidates for interviews in Fall 2014. As the hiring procedures are lengthy, early application is recommended.

According to the standard procedures of public universities in Turkey, short-listed candidates should travel to the department at their own expense to give a research paper, in support of their application.

Istanbul Technical University (http://www.itu.edu.tr) (est. 1773) is one of the leading research universities in Turkey, with an increasing number of international faculty. ITU is part of the Erasmus program of student and faculty exchanges between European universities. ITU ranks high internationally and has connections with universities around the world. It is spread over a number of campuses throughout Istanbul. Istanbul is a major European and world city, with one of the richest histories of any city in the world, and one of the most beautiful locations in the world. The city has a rich and diverse culture in music, art, theatre, and a wealth of library collections and museums.

Application materials should be sent via email to Dr. Geoff Bove (geoffrey.bowe@gmail.com).
