The Department of Religion in the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University invites applications for a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor of Religion to begin August 2017. We seek a colleague who works on contemporary religion on the American scene at the intersection of race, ethnicity, gender, and/or sexualities.
The successful candidate would make significant contributions both to the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. At the undergraduate level, we would particularly welcome teaching expertise in areas such as Religion and Politics; Religion and Race; Religion and Postcolonialism; Secularism; Religion and Social Justice. At the graduate level in addition to contributing to an area of specialization, the successful candidate would contribute directly to the Department’s concentration in Critique, Image, and Politics which is grounded in continental philosophy and/or critical theory. Their work would reflect scholarship in a variety or combination of fields, including affect theory, psychoanalytic theory, political theory, gender studies, queer theory, critical race theory, postcolonialism and de-colonialism, image theory and visual studies.
“The Critique Image, and Politics” concentration sits alongside two closely related departmental concentrations, “Communities and Identities” and “Texts and Contexts.” All faculty engage and work with colleagues and students across the entire Department, and the Department is strongly committed to innovative and interdisciplinary inquiry.
Applications should be made on-line at: www.sujobopps.com # 072828 and should consist of a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, and contact information for at least three (3)letters of recommendation.
Applications will be reviewed beginning immediately and will continue until an appointment is filled. Information about the Department of Religion and its structure of concentrations is posted on our website:http://religion.syr.edu/GradProgram.html. The Department is committed to a diversified faculty and persons from groups underrepresented in the American academy are especially encouraged to apply.
