Position Description: Director of Episcopal Studies
Candler School of Theology invites applications and nominations for a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position as Director of Episcopal Studies beginning Fall 2015. Review of applications will begin February 1, 2015.
The person appointed to this position will be committed to theological education, preparing women and men for ministries in the church and the world. A terminal academic degree (Ph.D. or equivalent) is preferred, as is ordination recognized by The Episcopal Church. The candidate should have significant experience in parish life and knowledge of the ecclesial landscape of the Episcopal Church. The field of scholarly specialty is open, as is the rank.
The person selected for the position will teach courses in Episcopal Studies as well as broader cognate disciplines, supporting the curriculum of Candler School of Theology. The appointee will coordinate course offerings for the Episcopal Studies Certificate, provide mentoring to Episcopal students, coordinate the weekly service of liturgy, and provide a pastoral presence in the Candler community. The successful candidate will teach four courses a year, including the Episcopal Studies Contextual Education reflection group, and courses on Episcopal theology, history and polity. She or he will also provide strategic visioning for growth and development of the Episcopal Studies Program and work with Candler’s Admissions Office to recruit Episcopal students. In addition to teaching and research, faculty members of Candler School of Theology are committed to service, both within the school and in the larger church and community.
Applications, nominations, and recommendations may be sent to Director of Episcopal Studies Search, c/o Brenda Roberts, Manager, Faculty Development and Support Services, Candler School of Theology, Emory University, 1531 Dickey Drive, Atlanta, GA 30322, or email documents in Microsoft Word or PDF to [email protected]
