Jobs for Kantians (JFK)

Over the summer of 2011, we began circulating information about job-related opportunities in the field of Kantian studies.  The idea was received enthusiastically by many of our members, particularly those experiencing the brutal nature of the job market or with fresh memories of it.  We decided to have a special page in our website posting academic opportunities in areas of specialization that NAKS members would be expected to have. Although this information is generally available in the APA’s Jobs for Philosophers and other professional publications, we thought it would be mutually beneficial for job-seekers and prospective employers to have a special venue for it in our website, where they could reach scholars precisely with the expertise they are looking for. To make this project successful, we need the collaboration of our members. If your department is looking for a candidate who specializes in areas related to Kantian studies, please send the information to Rachel Zuckert, r-zuckert@northwestern.edu. We will make sure it reaches fellow Kantians.
