McGill University, Faculty of Religious Studies
Barbara and Patrick Keenan Chair in Interfaith Studies
|Institution Type:||College / University|
The Faculty of Religious Studies at McGill University invites applications from established scholars for appointment to the newly endowed Barbara and Patrick Keenan Chair in Interfaith Studies. We seek a dynamic scholar whose area of research is broadly devoted to a better understanding of the ways in which societies, communities, and persons adhering to or influenced by different religions engage one another, and of how they perceive that engagement. Areas of specialization may attend to any historical period and/or geographical region, with specific reference to the interactions among religions. This tenure-stream appointment will provide an opportunity to define an exciting and emerging scholarly area, in collaboration with colleagues in Religious Studies and in interdisciplinary networks across the university. We anticipate appointment at the level of tenured, full professor. The Chair will be expected to contribute fully to the undergraduate and graduate programs of the Faculty, attract and supervise students at the MA and PhD levels, and participate in the work of the Centre for Research on Religion (CREOR). Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent in Religious Studies, teaching and graduate supervisory experience, as well as an active research program and excellent publication record. Salary will be negotiable, according to qualifications and experience. Applications should include curriculum vitae and a cover letter that includes a statement addressing how your research and teaching expertise contributes to the shaping of this new emerging field of Interfaith Studies, along with the names of three references who may be contacted at a later stage in the search.
The appointment is available from August 1, 2014. The search committee will begin reviewing applications on January 10, 2014 and will continue to do so until a suitable candidate is found.

It welcomes applications from: women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, persons of minority sexual orientation or gender identity, visible minorities, and others who may contribute to diversification.
