Bethany Theological Seminary invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Peace Studies, beginning Fall 2022. Rank: open. PhD preferred; ABD considered.

The appointee will be expected to develop and teach an average of five graduate courses per year, including at least one online course per year, and offer one non-graduate course for the Brethren Academy biennially. While the primary focus will be courses in Peace Studies, the successful candidate will be able to offer courses in another area of expertise, which complements and expands the Seminary’s degree and certificate programs. Various fields of study that could supplement Bethany’s Peace Studies curriculum include: theology and culture, theopoetics, social justice work, spirituality, history of Christianity, intercultural theology, intersectional theology, and ecological theology.

Other duties will include: student advising, supervision of MA theses in the area of Peace Studies as needed, serving on at least one major institutional committee annually, participating in the recruitment of new students through interviews and informal contacts, regular participation in faculty meetings and other campus events, and opportunities for speaking engagements within the Church of the Brethren and other settings. Commitment to the mission and values of the Seminary is essential.

We specifically encourage applications from women, African-Americans, Latinx, and other ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented in the seminary professorate. The appointment will begin on July 1, 2022.

Application Deadline: November 15, 2021. Interviews will begin in December 2021 and continue into early 2022.
