The Center for Ethics and Public Affairs at the Murphy Institute at Tulane University invites applications for three Visiting Research Professorships/Faculty Fellowships for the 2016-2017 academic year.  Deadline for applications is December 1, 2015.

These fellowships are available to support outstanding faculty whose teaching and research focus on ethics, political philosophy, and political theory, or questions of moral choice in areas such as, but not restricted to, business, government, law, economics, and medicine.

While fellows will participate in conferences and seminars organized by the Murphy Institute, they will be expected to devote most of their time to conducting their own research.   Faculty Fellows are normally appointed as Visiting Research Professors.  As Visiting Research Professors, they receive a salary of 65,000 USD and are eligible for Tulane University health insurance.

For more information, please visit our web site or contact Margaret Keenan at or 504.862.3236.


Applicants should hold a doctorate or equivalent research degree in philosophy, political theory, or a related discipline at the time of application.  Applicants should also have a full-time college or university appointment at the time of application.  Faculty Fellowships are open to full-time faculty at all ranks.

Application Instructions:

All applicants must apply via Interfolio.
Applying via Interfolio is free of charge for all applicants.

The application deadline is  December 1, 2015.
