Claremont Lincoln University
Faculty in Religion and Politics
Claremont Lincoln University is desegregating theological education by creating a consortium of three founding institutions, the Claremont School of Theology, the Academy for Jewish Religion, CA, and Bayan Claremont, founded by the Islamic Center of Southern California. Claremont Lincoln will also have Jain, Buddhist and Hindu partner schools, with others still to be added. Professors and students combine the resources of religious traditions with "secular" fields of scholarship to develop solutions to significant global challenges. Faculty, staff, and students represent a rich religious, ethnic, and international diversity. Claremont Lincoln seeks a racially diverse, broadly representative faculty that is sensitive to cross-cultural issues. We are seeking a scholar who will work collegially with us as we continue to add programs and partners to this growing multi-religious university consortium.

Submissions by email strongly encouraged; use firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of apps will begin Nov. 1st. Position will remain open until filled..
