Job No: 496680
Position Type: full-time
Location: Lewisburg, PA
Categories: Religious Studies

The Department of Religious Studies at Bucknell University invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) in Christianity, to begin August 2021. Teaching load is six courses for the academic year, three per semester. Teaching responsibilities include RELI 100: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; RELI 212: Christianity; RELI 252: New Testament and Christian Origins; and other courses in the candidate's area of expertise. A Ph.D. by the start date is preferred, but an ABD will be considered.

The Department of Religious Studies at Bucknell serves majors and minors pursuing the academic study of religion, as well as a large number of students from across the university. The ideal candidate will be a teacher-scholar with an interest in interdisciplinary approaches to the study of Christianity, and with a demonstrated commitment to supporting diversity and the liberal arts mission.

We seek a teacher-scholar who has a demonstrated commitment to diversity and high impact educational practices (writing intensive courses, interdisciplinary courses, global learning, etc.) that would appeal to a broad university audience. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education. We invite candidates to explain how issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion are brought into their teaching, scholarship, and/or service in their application materials.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, C.V., statement of teaching philosophy, and a sample syllabus for a course on Christianity. Applicants who pass the initial stage of review will be asked to provide two letters of recommendation. For additional information and to apply, please visit Bucknell's career site: Applications will only be accepted online. Questions should be directed to Professor Stuart Young, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies ([email protected]). Review of applications will begin two weeks after posting date and continue until the position is filled.

The Religious Studies Department is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion; candidates should address their relevant experience and expertise in these areas in their application materials.
