Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in hand by the time of appointment. TCU embraces the teacher-scholar model: excellence in teaching and published scholarship will be expected. The teaching load is typically five courses a year, three of which are introductory courses in religion that meet the TCU Core Curriculum Requirements (see http://www.core.tcu.edu). Upper-level courses will include a basic history of Christianity from the early medieval to the modern period as well as courses in the candidate’s area of expertise. We welcome candidates whose experience and training in teaching, research, or community service demonstrate their commitment to contributing to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Preference will be given to candidates whose experience and training have prepared them to make contributions to any of the interdisciplinary curricular initiatives in the AddRan College of Liberal Arts: the African American and Africana Studies minor, the Middle East Studies minor, the Latina/o Studies minor, the Asian Studies minor, the Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies Department, as well as the TCU Women and Gender Studies Department.

All applications must be made to https://tcu.igreentree.com [select “CSS Faculty” then on the dropdown menu under “School/College” select “AddRan College of Liberal Arts,” click “Find Jobs,” then select the appropriate position in Religion].  Applications must include a letter (signed and addressed to Dr. C. David Grant, Search Committee Chair) indicating qualifications for the position, a curriculum vitae, a one-page teaching statement, and a one-page statement indicating the applicant’s experience with and contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Three confidential letters of recommendation should be sent by recommenders or dossier service to hrtalentacquistion@tcu.edu.

Select interviews will be held at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion in Denver, Colorado between November 17-20.
