Job Opening: Department of Philosophy, NYU Shanghai

Sent to the IPB by Jonardon Ganeri, who notes that “the position is genuinely open. Within the NYU global network, Taneli Kukkonen and I already work in non-western philosophy, and collaborative ties between the three campuses continue to be strengthened.”
