Philosophy Jobs – In North America

The Philosopher’s Cocoon has a breakdown on the tenure track jobs this year (via Peter at Error).  Given that I work in a different ‘market’, where ‘continuing’ (we don’t talk about tenure here) jobs are usually within reach only several years after your PhD, it seems strange to measure things by a gold standard that is only appropriate to some. It looks like putting your eggs in one basket – both demoralisng, and not very accurate. But maybe I’m just ignorant about the US system.

What is interesting here is the breakdown by specialty. As Hansel would say: Ethics – so hot right now.
