Specific areas of interest include social change and social movements; human rights and social justice; political processes and philosophy; and cultural studies. Competence in interdisciplinary approaches to social science as a field of study will be an asset.

Interested candidates should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, a one-page statement on how their faith commitment contributes to their teaching and scholarship, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and contact information for three references.
Subject to final budgetary approval, the appointment will begin July 1, 2012. Rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Review of applications will begin December 15, 2011 and will continue until the position is filled.
