Associate Professor in Race, Religion and the African Diaspora
The Department of Religious Studies, University of Virginia, and the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African American and African Studies invite applications for a joint professorship in Race, Religion and the African Diaspora at the rank of associate professor. We seek candidates whose teaching and research explore the role of religion within black communities in the United States or the wider African Diaspora, and whose work considers the intersection of religion and race on any number of levels—cultural, historical, philosophical, or theological. Responsibilities include teaching half-time in Religious Studies and half-time in African American and African Studies, as well as proportional service to both units. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. In a relevant field. They should integrate interdisciplinary approaches in their scholarship and teaching, and possess a proven record of scholarly engagement and publication.
Review of applications will begin on November 3, 2014. The search will remain open until filled.
