Judaic Studies Tenure Track 2022-23
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.
