MILLSAPS COLLEGE announces a Fellowship in Religious Studies beginning August 2015 for a postdoctoral or ABD scholar-teacher. This is a one-year teaching fellowship with the possibility of renewal for a second year. The half-time teaching load of 3 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 and lead discussions for a collegial department.
Specialization should be in the areas(s) of Islam and Qur’an; secondary areas could include comparative study of Scriptures in religious traditions, such as Christianity and/or Judaism and/or Hinduism. The teaching load will include two departmental Religious Studies courses and one Humanities core course with a focus in religion. Teaching experience is a plus, and ability to engage undergraduates vital.
We offer a competitive salary including health and other benefits, a travel and research stipend of $2000, reimbursement for moving expenses. Employment will be contingent on complete background verification.
