Half-time Lecturer in the Study of Religion

The Committee on the Study of Religion is seeking applications for a half-time Lecturer to teach two courses geared to undergraduates during the 2017-18 academic year.  The Committee is flexible as to the distribution of the courses: they can both be taught in one semester, or one course could be taught each term over the course of the year.

Complete applications, including letters of reference and brief course descriptions, are due by June 17, 2017.
