Two-Year Visiting Position in Chinese Religion

Reed College seeks applications for a two-year visiting position in Chinese Religion for the 2013-15 academic years, to commence August 2013.  Appointments are normally made at the assistant professor level.  We seek outstanding, critically self-reflective candidates, and we look for experience in teaching as well as the ability to advise student research projects on a wide range of topics in religious studies.

Reed College is a selective liberal arts institution with a commitment to high standards of scholarship and teaching excellence in a seminar setting. The appointee will be expected to teach the equivalent of five one-semester courses over the academic year, and this will include teaching in the team-taught yearlong Chinese humanities program devoted to the Han and Song dynasties. The position also involves supervising yearlong senior thesis projects.
Qualifications

While a PhD is preferred, candidates who are ABD in Religion will also be considered for appointment.  The Religion Department is using Interfolio to collect faculty job applications electronically.  Through Interfolio, please submit a cover letter, CV and three letters of recommendation.  Because Reed College is a community that values cultural and intellectual diversity as essential to the excellence of our academic program, we also encourage candidates to convey in their cover letter or other application materials how their specific contributions to campus diversity might support the commitment to diversity and inclusion articulated in the College’s diversity statement (http://www.reed.edu/diversity/).  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but they should be received by 1 December 2012 to guarantee full consideration.  For further information about this position, please contact K.E.
