The Department of Religion at St. Olaf College invites applications for a full-time, tenure track position in Judaic Studies at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 2022
Particular area of expertise is open, but we are particularly interested in candidates with strengths in any of the following areas: 1) the Hebrew Bible and its reception history; 2) the intersection between religion and gender studies; 3) comparative or dialogical work dealing with Jewish-Christian relations. Ph.D. or near completion at time of appointment is preferred, and teaching experience is highly desirable.
The department is particularly interested in applicants who can and will advance the college’s goals for diversity, equity and inclusion. We request that in the letter of application, candidates address their potential to contribute to the St. Olaf community that maintains a diversity of people and perspectives as one of its core values. We strongly encourage applications from Black, Indigenous, and people of color and members of other underrepresented groups in accordance with our equity goals.
The normal teaching load is six courses per year. In addition to courses in the Religion department, there are also opportunities to teach courses in one of the college’s interdisciplinary programs. Duties typical to tenure-track appointments also involve some academic advising and department and college-wide committee service.
