The American Philosophical Association and the PhilPapers Foundation are pleased to announce a new partnership that will offer significant benefits to both APA members and the philosophical community at large.

Beginning this August, the APA’s Jobs for Philosophers, which has been the premier source for professional jobs in philosophy for more than four decades, will merge with PhilJobs, the PhilPapers Foundation’s respected and widely used philosophy jobs website, to become PhilJobs: Jobs for Philosophers (PhilJobs: JFP). By bringing together the excellent PhilJobs software platform with JFP’s established presence and the APA’s protections for job candidates such as its nondiscrimination policy, this partnership will create an online source for jobs in philosophy that is both comprehensive and user-friendly and gives job seekers confidence in fairness and equity in the hiring process. Further, this new combined service will be tailored to both US and international job listings, making it the go-to site for those seeking professional employment in philosophy as well as for hiring institutions.

PhilJobs: Jobs for Philosophers will be free of charge for all job seekers, and job advertisements will be available at competitive rates on a sliding fee scale to appeal to all types of institutions and hiring searches. Further, PhilJobs: JFP aims to expand to provide additional services for both job seekers and hiring departments in future years. As of July 1, 2013, Jobs for Philosophers will be freely accessible to job seekers in anticipation of the transition to PhilJobs: JFP.

The APA’s partnership with the PhilPapers Foundation will also extend to other initiatives. The APA will provide financial support for foundation projects including PhilPapers, a comprehensive directory of online philosophical articles and books by academic philosophers, and PhilPeople, an interactive, crowd-sourced, open directory of philosophers. The APA’s contribution will enable the PhilPapers Foundation to continue to maintain and expand its services for the community while evolving toward a sustainable funding model for the future.

We look forward to launching this new service in a matter of weeks and to working closely with the PhilPapers Foundation to develop new and valuable services for APA members and the philosophy profession as a whole.

All the best,
