Bertrand Russell Visiting Professorship, Hamilton ON (Canada)

The Department of Philosophy at McMaster University invites applications for a Visiting Professorship in Russell and the History of Early Analytic Philosophy. McMaster University, which houses the Bertrand Russell Archives and the Bertrand Russell Research Centre, is one of the leading centres for research on Russell's philosophy.

The Visiting Professorships, one of which will be available each year, are intended for established scholars whose research would be benefited by access to the Bertrand Russell Archives for an extended period. They are tenable for either one or two semesters, and involve the obligation to present at least one paper in the Philosophy Department's Speakers Series and teach one fourth year undergraduate course also open to graduates, preferably on the history of analytic philosophy (although a different topic may be agreed upon with the Chair of the Department of Philosophy), while undertaking research in the Russell Archives.

The closing date for applications for 2013-14 is April 30, 2013. For more information, see http://www.mcmaster.ca/vpacademic/Bertrand_RussellVP.html or contact Dr. Sandra Lapointe, tel: 905-525-9140, ext. 24312.
