ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF LITURGY
Catholic Theological Union is seeking to fill a full-time, entry-level, tenure-track position in liturgical studies to begin August 2015. The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. or its equivalent and a strong competency to teach the breadth of liturgical and sacramental studies across the professional and academic degrees offered, including online courses. Because the position also includes responsibility for teaching the liturgical practica for the celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments for seminarians, the successful candidate will be a Roman Catholic presbyter with demonstrated pastoral skills in presiding and preaching.
The candidate should also demonstrate a secondary area of competency in which he can teach (e.g., catechesis, music or other arts, intercultural worship, ritual studies, communications). In addition to teaching, all faculty of CTU are expected to engage in scholarly research and publication in professional and pastoral venues and offer service to the school and wider church community. Candidates from underrepresented constituencies are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should submit a Curriculum Vitae, a letter of intent, and arrange for the submission of three letters of recommendation. It is preferred that this dossier be submitted electronically to email@example.com.
The materials may also be sent by mail to Dr. Richard McCarron, Search Committee Chair, Department of Word and Worship, Catholic Theological Union, 5416 South Cornell Avenue, Chicago, IL 60615. Any questions should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review of applications will begin 14 November 2014 and continue until the position is filled. Interviews are anticipated to begin in early December 2014.
Candidates will share a commitment to CTU’s mission to prepare effective leaders for the Church, ready to witness to Christ’s good news of justice, love, and peace. CTU strives to accomplish this mission in a community environment composed of religious, clergy, and lay women and men who mirror the local and global Catholic Church in all its vibrant diversity.
