I thought it might be of interest to post some information about jobs in medieval philosophy. Nate Bulthuis, a Cornell graduate student who’s finishing a dissertation on propositions in Walter Burley, has kindly shared with me his list. The annotations are his.

[Three jobs originally listed here have now been deleted. It turns out they were for last year! Thanks to Sydney Penner for catching this.]

It’s interesting to note that there are no jobs listed from Europe. Are there really no jobs? Is it the wrong time of year? Or are the jobs not being advertised internationally?

    Bob and Nate: is the Notre Dame job the Mellon Fellowship in the Medieval Institute or have they advertised an actual teaching position?
