Lecturer in Religion, 1 Year Renewable Contract
The Religion Department at Carthage College seeks a lecturer who will develop and teach courses in religious ethics and spirituality. This is a one year contract position starting fall 2018 with the option of one additional year renewal. Candidates with a Ph.D. are preferred for this position, and a master’s degree is required.
In addition to teaching Understandings of Religion, a broad introduction to religion that is one of the College’s general education requirements, the lecturer will be expected to develop courses that address the underlying paradigms of religious ethics and spirituality. It is expected that the courses taught will be international, trans-traditional, and/or multi-paradigmatic, and courses that engage American religious change, particularly the growth of the “Nones.” The multiple possible worldviews could include not only established world religions, but also feminist, eco-friendly, neo-Pagan, or queer content and methods.
Interested candidates should submit an application as a single PDF document including a detailed letter summarizing how the candidate’s qualifications address the expectations of the position, a current curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, and three professional references with contact information to the “Resume Upload” section.
Review of applications will begin on Feb. 22, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled. If you have any questions or you’d like to submit additional documents, please email email@example.com.
