We particularly welcome candidates who focus on the Americas before 1900. An ability to teach American Christianity is appreciated, but not required.

Candidates may specialize in a range of disciplinary methodologies, but their approach to the study of religion should complement those of other faculty in the department. Candidates will be expected to develop courses in their areas of specialization and periodically to teach the theory and methods survey and senior seminar for the department. Ph.D. should be in hand or expected by September 2015.

Please submit a letter of application, c.v., summary of current research, short description of suggested courses and teaching vision, and three letters of reference by October 1, 2014.
