Faculty Job

Webster Universitys Department of Religious Studies is searching for a full time replacement position for Spring semester 2013.  The successful candidate must be ABD by December 2012; a Ph.D. is preferred.  Applicants should be broadly trained in the study of world religions, preferably with a focus in Western religions or with religions in small-scale societies.  The department particularly encourages candidates with experience in on-line teaching to apply.

The successful candidate will be prepared to teach courses on approaches to the study of religions, as well as courses that may include surveys of world and Western religions and/or religions in small-scale societies.   The ability to teach courses of interest to areas of interdisciplinary studies at Webster University may be useful.

This is a one semester appointment with a maximum teaching load of 4 courses and an expectation that the candidate will participate in the work of the department by contributing time and expertise to departmental projects.

The Department of Religious Studies educates a select group of majors who pursue a variety of career tracks, and contributes heavily to the general education of undergraduate students throughout the University.  A significant component of the departments curriculum is on-line; including the first totally undergraduate on-line major in the College of Arts and Sciences, Religion and Global Society.

Applicants should forward: (1) a letter of interest which addresses the identified qualifications, (2) resume or curriculum vitae, and (3) a list of three references to be contacted. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

Please mail application materials to Faculty Search, Department of Religious Studies, Webster University, 470 E. Lockwood Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63119-3194.

Webster University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer, women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
