Lawrence C. Gallen Teaching Fellowships in the Humanities
The Augustine and Culture Seminar Program (ACSP) seeks scholars in the Humanities for the Lawrence C. Gallen Teaching Fellowships in the Humanities, a three-year post-doctoral teaching appointment renewable for another three years. The Gallen fellows are responsible for teaching three sections per semester of the Augustine and Culture Seminar, a writing-intensive interdisciplinary seminar program required of all first year students.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a Humanities discipline, a strong commitment to teaching and learning in the Liberal Arts, and an interest in teaching the thought and influence of Augustine. In addition candidates with strong interdisciplinary backgrounds and an interest in working with diverse scholars in other humanities disciplines will receive preference.
Villanova is a Catholic university sponsored by the Augustinian Order. An AA/EEO employer, Villanova seeks a diverse faculty committed to scholarship, service, and especially teaching, who understand, respect, and can contribute to the University’s mission and values. For more detailed description of the position and the program, please consult http://jobs.villanova.edu to apply for a Gallen Fellowship for the 2015-16 academic year.
The mission of the Augustine and Culture Seminar is to introduce first-year students to the shared intellectual inquiry that marks a community of scholars. We therefore seek candidates who will engage our students and our faculty in studying questions of common concern in the humanities.
