Carleton College, Department of Religion, seeks qualified candidates to fill a one-year leave replacement position in Christian Studies, with a particular emphasis on gender, to begin Sept. 1, 2012. While candidates’ fields may include History of Christianity, Theology/Religious Thought, Biblical Studies, or Sociology/Anthropology of Religion, we seek those whose research or teaching competencies substantively engage gender as a category of analysis in Christian Studies.
Candidates should a) have experience in teaching, b) be skilled at relating both classical and contemporary Christian materials to their various historical and cultural settings, and c) situate their work within the broader theoretical and methodological concerns of the field of religious studies. We seek applicants who are committed to teaching a diverse student body in a religiously-unaffiliated, highly selective, liberal arts environment. While we will consider ABD candidates, it is preferred that the Ph.D. be in hand by Sept. 1, 2012. Women and members of minority groups are especially encouraged to apply. Carleton College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, status with regard to public assistance, disability, or age in providing employment or access to its educational facilities and activities. The expected teaching load for this position is five courses distributed over a three-term academic year. Benefits apply.
