Moving to Front:
The JFP ad in hardcopy is mistaken in two ways (the JFP online ad should be corrected soon). The teaching load is 2/2 first year and standardly 3/2 thereafter, subject to negotiation. Second the rank is associate or near-associate professor.
Some readers of The Prosblogion might be interested in a tenured/tenure-track position in the Department of Philosophy and Classics at UT-San Antonio. The AOS is Analytic Epistemology and the rank is Associate or near-Associate professor. The advertisement is posted here. Please let me know if you have any questions about it.

    Being international doesn’t interestingly diminish your odds. We have two international staff and in recent years three.

  • What about the visa aspect? Would that be a disadvantage if one was up against other applicants who were american citizens?
    My husband stopped applying for US positions because he thought the fact an institution would have to petition for him to get a visa would mean he wouldn’t stand a chance if there were any competent US applicants.
    The problem is that in New Zealand, where all the Universities are State owned, there are not many Philosophy vacancies and we are finding New Zealand harder and harder to live in.
