BOSTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position in Theology at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin in Fall 2014. The successful candidate will be an outstanding scholar in theology, holding a PhD or ThD in Theology or an appropriate, equivalent degree, and having potential for a strong record of publications in the field. An additional seminary degree (e.g., MDiv, MTS, MAR) is highly desirable. The candidate should be a theologian conversant with Christian traditions and specializing in religion and science, with a focus on theology in relation to one or more of the natural sciences. Areas of competence are open, but particular consideration will be given to candidates who have additional expertise in historical theology, comparative theology, or religion and conflict. Candidates should be committed to the School’s mission of preparing leaders for diverse forms of ministry in religious communities and faith-based organizations, as well as teaching doctoral students for the professoriate and other forms of scholarship within the interdisciplinary context of a research university. Responsibilities and opportunities include teaching four courses per year in masters and doctoral programs of the School of Theology and BU Graduate School Division of Religious and Theological Studies, some of which may be in collaborative programs with other Boston University schools. In addition, the person will have the opportunity to give leadership, with others, in the School of Theology and in Boston University programs in religion and science. Boston University expects excellence in teaching and research and is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse faculty and staff committed to engaged scholarship in a multicultural environment. The salary will be commensurate with experience. Applications – including a curriculum vitae, statement of teaching and research plans, a major publication sample, and three professional references (sent separately) – should be sent to Dr. Claire Wolfteich, Chair, Theology Search Committee, Boston University School of Theology, 745 Commonwealth Avenue, Suite 110, Boston, MA 02215.
