Position Title: Assistant Professor - Theology and Religious Studies Position Type: Faculty Location: Villanova, PA Recruitment Type: Internal/External Applicants Work Schedule: full-time/9-months Department: 147-Theology/Religious Studies Position Summary:

The Department of Theology and Religious Studies at Villanova University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor, to begin in fall 2022. We seek a colleague in the field of Fundamental/Systematic Theology who works in the Catholic tradition and specializes in the areas of Ecclesiology and Theology of Ministry. Successful applicants are expected to approach these areas from one or more of the following perspectives: Asian/Asian-American Theology, Black Theology, Feminist Theology, Womanist Theology.

Villanova is a Catholic university sponsored by the Augustinian Order located in the culturally diverse Philadelphia metropolitan area. The University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and seeks candidates who understand, respect, and can contribute to the University's mission and values. Just as diversity, equity, and inclusion have been and will continue to be an integral component of the University's mission, the Department embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion practices as central tasks of theology and the study of religion at their best. Accordingly, we seek candidates who are committed to the development of vibrant communities that foster respect and appreciation for the spectrum of human diversity. We especially welcome applicants who come from groups that are underrepresented in the Department and who will contribute to the further diversification of identities and ideas.

Departmental programs provide an ecumenical environment in which undergraduate students complete core curriculum requirements and pursue majors in theology and religious studies. Graduate students pursue master's and doctoral degrees in Catholic theology and in ministry and prepare for college-level research and teaching; for lay ministry in diverse Christian churches; and for a wide range of professional careers, including additional advanced degrees in academic and professional schools, not-for-profit work, and public service. For information about the University, the College, and the Department, please consult https:// www. villanova.edu.
