Tenure-Track Faculty Position in ReligionDate Posted: 07/30/19
Wabash College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Biblical Studies, beginning July 1, 2020. We expect to hire at the Assistant Professor level, but are open to candidates at other ranks. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, New Testament, or a closely related field by the time appointment begins. The successful applicant will demonstrate a commitment to undergraduate teaching in the context of a residential, single-sex liberal arts college with a diverse student body.
Teaching load is three courses per semester. The successful candidate will teach introductory courses in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament, upper level electives in biblical studies, and method courses in the study of religion. The successful applicant should also demonstrate a willingness and capacity to teach in the College’s Freshman Tutorial program and the interdisciplinary freshman course Enduring Questions, as well as contribute to other curricular and interdisciplinary initiatives at the College.
Wabash offers a competitive salary, generously supports faculty research, and is committed to nurturing a community of teacher-scholars who challenge and encourage young men in their education. Wabash College also is home to several initiatives in religion funded by the Lilly Endowment, including the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion; Scroll: Wabash Institute of Theology for Youth; and the Wabash Pastoral Leadership Program.
At the time of application, please be prepared to submit your letter of interest, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, unofficial undergraduate and graduate transcripts (official transcripts will be required upon hire), and email addresses for three persons who will submit confidential letters of recommendation. In their application materials, candidates should describe their research interests and agenda and articulate the ways their approach to biblical studies relates to and is appropriate in an independent liberal arts college setting. For full consideration, applications should be received by October 1. Please direct questions to Derek Nelson, chair of the Religion Department, at 765-361-6274 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
