Emory: Latinx Christianity

The Department of Religion at Emory University (Atlanta, GA) invites applications for an Associate or Full Professor of Latin American/Latino/LatinX Christianity to begin Fall 2017. The position is open to scholars working on Catholic or Protestant traditions, or popular Christian traditions that incorporate indigenous and/or African elements. Approaches may include (but are not limited to) ethnography, material culture, philosophy, theology, history, or comparative studies. We seek a scholar who has the agility to engage in robust interdisciplinary conversations in the Department of Religion and the Graduate Division of Religion. The successful applicant will demonstrate an excellent record in scholarship as well as teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Demonstrated ability to mentor underrepresented student populations is also considered advantageous.

Interested candidates should submit electronically a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, the names and contact information of three recommenders, and an article or book chapter to Joyce Flueckiger, Latin American/Latino/LatinX Christianity Search Committee Chair. The Search Committee will begin reviewing applications October 15, 2016.

Emory University is an Equal opportunity/Affirmative Action/Disability/Veteran employer. Women, minorities, persons with disabilities and veterans are encouraged to apply. For addition information, please contact the chair of the search committee at latinXtysearch@emory.edu
