Leaving UC Riverside for Australian National University in July

I have accepted ANU's offer of a Professor position in Philosophy. I will be leaving UC Riverside in July. I have spent 14 years at UCR and all my life since age 7 in California. I have fond feelings for the department and the region, but my family and I are excited to be moving forward to a new adventure!

The Splintered Mind will chug along as usual, though there may be a few slow patches during the period of transition.

Best of luck to you and your family Eric! (I'm just glad ANU didn't grab you when I was attending UCR).

A big giant congrats to you! If one is to go under, this is the way to do it!!

Congratulations to you and your family... It's too bad that I'll just miss you at Riverside, but I certainly understand why you accepted the offer. Good luck!

Congrats! Canberra is an idyllic place for philosophers (and, for that matter, so is Aussie overall). Are you going to be teaching any undergrad courses?

Congratulations! I would have loved to do some X-Phi with you if I somehow miraculously got into grad school.

Thanks, everyone! Belated reply to Anon Apr. 21: Yes, I will be teaching one undergrad course per term. I'm especially looking forward to doing Phil of Mind there, where I can introduce the undergrads to some of the famous ANU philosophers on the syllabus!
