New Appointments in Philosophy
By S. Matthew Liao

The American Philosophical Association and the PhilPapers Foundation are pleased to announce New Appointments in Philosophy, a new service through PhilJobs: Jobs for Philosophers. This database of new appointments in philosophy departments worldwide will allow standardized collection of demographic and other data about appointments in philosophy. It will also provide a way to systematically disseminate news of recent appointments.

The service is now available at the following URL: http://philjobs.org/appointments/

The website provides users with a list of new appointments, in reverse chronological order by submission. Users can also display appointments in various categories: senior/tenured, junior/untenured, fellowships, and others. The site also provides RSS feeds for each of these categories and a search engine.
