Reed College seeks applications for a one-year visiting position in Religion and Humanities at the Assistant Professor level for the 2012-13 academic year, to commence August 2012. We seek outstanding, critically self-reflective candidates from all areas of Religious Studies and would especially invite applications from candidates with a specialization in the history and practices of Islam. Experience teaching and advising student research projects on a wide range of topics in religious studies is highly desirable.
Reed College is a selective liberal arts institution with a commitment to high standards of scholarship and teaching excellence in a conference setting. The appointee will be expected to teach the equivalent of five one semester courses over the academic year, and this may include teaching the team-taught Humanities 110 course required of all first-year students. The position also involves supervising year-long senior thesis projects.
While a PhD is preferred, candidates who are ABD in Religion will also be considered for appointment. The Religion Department is using Interfolio to collect faculty job applications electronically. Through Interfolio, please submit a cover letter, CV, and three letters of recommendation. For more information and application instructions, see http://www.interfolio.com/apply/10142.

An Equal Opportunity Employer, Reed values diversity and encourages applications from underrepresented groups.
