He has taught at the University of Regina (Campion College) and Dickenson College for one year each, then Howard University for 6 years, before moving to the University of Guelph for 19 years, and finally to Duquesne in 2014.

Lampert has published three books (on Husserl, Deleuze, and Philosophy of Time) plus one edited book, as well as many articles and book chapters. Many of these papers involve Hegel, but he has also written on Fichte, Heidegger, Bergson, Gadamer, Derrida, Marion, Badiou, and other figures. He frequently works in areas related to the philosophy of time, in relation to a variety of philosophical schools, primarily (but not exclusively) in Continental Philosophy. Currently, he is working on a new book tentatively called Decisions and Futures.

I addition, he is interested in African and Ancient Egyptian philosophies, as well as philosophical interests in film (particularly special effects editing) and music (particularly serial and spectral music).
