Job Ad: Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer

By October 26, 2015

We’d like to make our readers aware of an exciting new opportunity: the University of Virginia posted an ad for a Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer in Mormon Studies. From the description:

“The University of Virginia’s program in Mormon Studies invites applications for one full-time postdoctoral fellow and lecturer for the academic year beginning August 25, 2016. Seeking a social scientist or anthropologist, but applicants may specialize in any discipline, field or professional school. Duties include, but are not limited to, teaching two courses per semester in subjects broadly related to Religious Studies, its methodologies and cognate fields, such as race and gender studies, ethnography and ritual studies, and philosophy and textual hermeneutics.

To be competitive, the applicant must demonstrate a disciplinary focus or research specialty that has the possibility of furthering comprehension of Mormonism as a socio-cultural phenomenon. In the alternative, the applicant may demonstrate a research project that would be furthered by the inclusion of Mormonism as an object of study. Interest and experience in digital humanities is welcome.

Fellow will show evidence of experience in and commitment to undergraduate teaching in a liberal arts framework, and will be prepared to participate in both large team-taught introductory-level classes and smaller upper-level courses.

Of the four required courses, the Fellow will be expected to teach three seminars in his or her discipline, one of which must include Mormonism as one of its objects of study. In addition, the Fellow will team-teach the University’s introductory course in Mormonism. Applicants do not need to show training in Mormon Studies. The fellow will work closely with the Richard Lyman Bushman Professor of Mormon Studies, who will provide guidance in both pedagogy and curriculum- and program building.”

The deadline is May 11, 2016. More information can be found here.
