Faculty Job

Claremont Lincoln University

Faculty in Religion and Politics

Claremont Lincoln University invites applications for a full-time, five year renewable contract position, rank open, in Religion and Politics. We seek a scholar who can address issues related to religion and politics from within the context of ethics, philosophy, political science, or area studies. The recently founded Claremont Lincoln University is at the center of a new consortium of professional graduate schools for the training of religious scholars and practitioners of a variety of religious and non-religious viewpoints. Claremont Lincoln functions as a consortium of schools and centers that includes Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Jain, and Hindu partners. Thus, both interdisciplinary and inter-religious competency is a necessary prerequisite for any successful job candidate.Responsibilities include graduate teaching (four courses per year) and advising in M.A and Ph.D. programs in the existing Religion, Ethics, and Society doctoral concentration and an anticipated doctoral concentration in Religion and Politics. Candidates prepared to engage in online teaching are preferred. We seek excellence in teaching and scholarship, collegiality, and professional/religious/social engagement. Possibilities currently exist to collaborate with Claremont Graduate University doctoral programs. Rank and salary will be determined by qualifications and experience. Completed Ph.D. and teaching experience are preferable.
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.
