The Department of Religious Studies at Colby College invites applications for a two-year faculty fellow in Christianity and American Religious Experience, beginning September 1, 2018. Each year the successful candidate will teach one introductory-level course in Modern Christianity and three additional courses in the candidate’s areas of interest. Applicants whose teaching and research interests include ritual/performance studies, or ethnicity/race studies, or gender studies are especially encouraged to apply. We welcome any specialty within those broad categories as long as the candidate’s expertise includes American religious experience. Applicants should demonstrate a strong commitment both to teaching undergraduates in a liberal arts setting and to scholarly research. The search committee is especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the campus community both inside and outside the classroom. Ph.D. preferred.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, statement of teaching philosophy and research interests, and a representative sample of current scholarship via Interfolio at the following link, https://apply.interfolio.com/48480.

Review of applications will begin February 22, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.
