DePaul University | Faculty Opportunities

Assistant Professor, Catholicism and Literature

We welcome applications from persons whose research and teaching engage Catholicism and literature; we are open to scholars focusing on American or other regional literatures, comparative/peoples/world literatures, or combinations/subsets thereof. As an interdisciplinary department, we encourage applications from persons whose work explores Catholic literature (considered by itself or in dialogue with other traditions of Christian literature, e.g., Orthodox Christianity, Protestantism) from a variety of perspectives, disciplines or traditions. Persons able to teach in other programs/departments (e.g., English, creative writing, comparative literature) are encouraged to identify their interests in these areas.

The Department of Catholic Studies is an interdisciplinary department (involving historians, theologians, social scientists, humanities scholars and others) committed to high-quality undergraduate teaching both in its major and through the university’s Liberal Studies Program. DePaul is the largest Catholic university in the United States, noted for its diverse student body and commitment to community engagement. DePaul is committed to recruiting a diverse faculty to complement the diversity of its student body and Chicago area communities. We encourage members of underrepresented groups to apply.

Applicants should electronically submit a formal letter of application describing one’s present and future research agendas, a curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, a sample of scholarly work, and names of three academic references. The committee will begin reviewing applications on March 1, 2014. Please do not send applications via e-mail. The doctoral or relevant terminal degree should be in hand by the time of appointment (September, 2014). All applications must utilize the university’s online application tool, located at the following URL: facultyopportunities.depaul.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=51082.
Please direct queries to Dr. Michael Budde, Chair, Department of Catholic Studies, (mbudde@depaul.edu); or Dr. William Cavanaugh, Director, CWCIT (wtcavana1@depaul.edu).

Assistant Professor, Department of Catholic Studies and Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology
Founded in 2008, the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology (CWCIT) is a research center housed within the Department of Catholic Studies. The Center promotes research on the Church as a worldwide movement now based in the so-called global south, and serves scholarly and ecclesial communities alike. More information is available via the Center’s web site (http://las.depaul.edu/cwcit/ ).
We seek applications from persons with expertise in Catholicism either in Africa or in Asia; persons with other areas of expertise related to Catholicism in the global south are also welcome to apply. We are open to a variety of disciplinary backgrounds and perspectives, historical as well as contemporary interests, and we welcome scholars who can contribute to the interdisciplinary character of the Center and the Department. The successful applicant will be expected to teach courses in Catholic Studies at the undergraduate level and be a member of that Department; he or she will also contribute to the research programs and collaborative initiatives sponsored by the Center.
