Millsaps College, Religious Studies department, announces a one-year Teaching Fellowship in Christian Studies beginning August 2013 for a postdoctoral or ABD scholar-teacher. The teaching load of four courses for the year will allow the recipient to strengthen teaching skills while also working on professional publications.
The Fellow will be expected to engage actively in the intellectual life of the college and department and will have opportunities to participate in teaching colloquia and writing workshops and to be part of a collegial department.
Specialization should be in some area(s) of Christian Studies; secondary areas of interest may include Gender or Women's Studies or other areas. Courses will be taught in the departmental curriculum and Humanities core. Teaching experience is a plus, and ability to engage undergraduates vital.
The College offers a competitive salary including health and other benefits, a travel and research stipend of $2,000, and reimbursement for moving expenses. Employment will be contingent on complete background verification.
