How does the Philosophy department of City College, New York (part of the CUNY system) make two new tenure-track hires from an applicant pool of 637? Lou Marinoff tells all
to Inside Higher Ed
For the Teal Deer contingent, here are the search committee's four criteria in the order Marinoff lists them:
1) PhD from a prestigious institution. (He says "institution," not department.)
2) Research and publication record. (Oh, and may your interests be, well, interesting.)
3) Ability to teach undergraduates a broad array of topics. (Don't be narrow!)
4) Grantsmanship. (He says "administrative service," but what they really want to see is your fundraising potential.)
Well, folks? How do you think you're going to stack up?
Yeah. Ri~ght. >_<May the Force Be with You.
