|Institution Type:||College / University|

The Department of Philosophy and Religion at James Madison University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Islam at the rank of assistant professor, to begin August 2021. We seek a dedicated teacher on a dynamic research trajectory to join our department of 22 full-time faculty (8 in Religion).
This position forms part of a first-of-its-kind initiative at James Madison University: a cohort hire of six outstanding, tenure-track faculty working collaboratively in several interconnected areas, which include social justice, minority cultures and politics, racial equity, non-Western thought, and critical race studies. Scholars hired into this cohort will be appointed in six of the College’s ten departments: Sociology and Anthropology; History; Political Science; Justice Studies; Philosophy and Religion; and Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communication. We seek excellent applicants within their particular disciplines, but also scholars and teachers eager to work across them, both within the College and beyond. Arriving as a cohort with broadly shared interests, successful candidates will enhance existing strengths in Latinx, African American, African diaspora, ethnic and global studies. A complete description of this cohort hire may be found here http://joblink.jmu.edu/postings/8052.
Preference will be given to candidates with a Ph.D. in Religious Studies with a specialty in Islam in Africa and/or the African diaspora. Candidates with other areas of specialization in the study of Islam and A.B.D. candidates are also welcome to apply.
