Quest University Canada's Humanities Division invites applications for a full-time continuing faculty position in cultural life in the contemporary world to begin August 1, 2013.

Quest classes are seminar-style, and are limited to 20 students.
The successful candidate will hold the PhD or equivalent at time of appointment (August 1, 2014). Teaching experience is required, as is evidence of excellence in teaching.
