2005-2006 Job Market

Hey all--
It is instructive to look at JFP, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and the independent jobs for philosophers post. Each of these posts can let you figure out what the trend is in hirinings. Some of the interesting things to notice this year over last year is the increase in jobs in the following areas: Philosophy of Science, Metaphysics, Epistemology, Philosophy of Language, and History of Analytic Philosophy. Jobs in this area were low last year compared to: Applied ethics (esp. Bioethics and Business ethics), Ethical Theory, Meta-ethics, Social-Political Philosophy, and other (as I like to call it). So, get on the game and check the JFP against last years so you are aware of the projection trend.
