Assistant or Associate Professor
The Religious Studies Department at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro seeks candidates for a tenure-track position in Islam. We expect to fill the position at the rank of Assistant Professor, although experienced candidates may also be considered for appointment at the Associate rank. The area of specialization is open. However, a demonstrated research and teaching interest in Islam and gender is particularly desirable. The occupant of this position may occasionally teach a course cross-listed with the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. The Department emphasizes a liberal arts approach to religious studies. Along with this conceptual orientation, evidence of excellence in teaching undergraduates will positively influence our deliberations.
The successful candidate will teach general and specialized courses in Islam and should expect to occasionally teach REL 101: Introduction to Religious Studies. The teaching load is 3/2 per year (for research active faculty). The successful candidate should anticipate receipt of a PhD by August 1, 2013.
Review of applications will begin October 15, 2012 and continue until the position is filled.
Candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and three names for letters of reference (in hard copy only) to Gregory Price Grieve, 109 Foust Bldg., UNCG, Greensboro, NC 27402; firstname.lastname@example.org. Letters of recommendation and transcripts will only be requested of the finalists.
UNC Greensboro is especially proud of the diversity of its student body, and we seek to attract an equally diverse applicant pool for this position, including women and members of minority groups.
We are an EEO/AA employer with a strong commitment to increasing faculty diversity.
