Villanova Center for Liberal Education Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship
The Villanova Center for Liberal Education seeks scholars in the Humanities to apply for the Lawrence C. Gallen, OSA, Post-doctoral Teaching Fellowship, starting in the Fall Semester 2010. Each Gallen Teaching Fellowship is a continuing, renewable teaching appointment in the Villanova Center for Liberal Education (VCLE) subject to yearly review.
Each Fellow is responsible for teaching three sections per semester of the Augustine and Culture Seminar. Duties and Responsibilities: Each Fellow helps develop and oversee various scholarly activities sponsored by the program, including conferences, faculty workshops, a book series, its journal, Expositions, and other projects. In addition, each Fellow is required to contribute to Villanova's residential learning communities.
Villanova is a Roman Catholic University sponsored by the Augustinian Order. An AA/EEO employer, Villanova seeks a diverse faculty committed to scholarship, service, and especially teaching, who understand, respect, and can contribute to the University's mission and values.
The mission of the VCLE is to introduce first-year students to the shared intellectual inquiry that marks a community of scholars. We therefore seek candidates who will engage our students and our faculty, in studying questions of common concern in the Augustinian Catholic intellectual tradition.
Minimum Qualifications: Each candidate must have a Ph.D. in a Humanities discipline and a strong commitment to teaching and learning in the liberal arts. In addition, each candidate must have an interest in teaching the thought of Augustine and its influence.
Candidates with strong interdisciplinary backgrounds and an interest in working with diverse scholars in other humanities disciplines receive preference.
Applicants must apply on-line at http://jobs.villanova.edu. All material must be received by February 1, 2010. Questions about the position can be directed to Dr. John Doody, Director, Villanova Center for Liberal Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.
