Assistant Professor of Education
Belmont Abbey College invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor of Education position to begin August 1, 2021.
This is a full-time undergraduate teaching position with a 4/4 teaching load. A Department of Education faculty member’s overall responsibilities include: teaching, which is paramount; academic advising; scholarship, which sustains and enriches teaching; research and publication; participation in College governance; and service to the institution and college community.
An earned doctorate in education is required. Areas of expertise open, with preference given to literacy, math, and children with exceptionalities. Candidates should have at least 5 years teaching experience in grades K-8 and must be legally authorized to work in the United States.
The successful candidate will be a talented and dedicated academic deeply and enthusiastically committed to the Catholic mission of Belmont Abbey College. Preference will be given to those candidates who can demonstrate 1) a record of excellence in undergraduate teaching and a sense of teaching as a vocation; 2) a philosophy of teaching that supports the approach to education expressed in St. John Paul II’s Ex Corde Ecclesiae; and 3) a strong desire to teach at a liberal arts institution where the academic program is “guided by the Catholic intellectual tradition and the Benedictine spirit of prayer and learning.”
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the search is completed. Please apply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line “Education Search.” Include a letter of application, vita, the names and contact information of at least three references, and a written response in which you explain how your work engages with the Catholic intellectual tradition in the context of a Benedictine liberal arts college and how your own faith tradition informs your vocation as teacher and scholar. (Evidence of teaching excellence and official transcripts are optional at this stage, but required for interview.)
