Earlham School of Religion — Full-Time Faculty of Peace & Justice Studies (Open Rank)

Earlham School of Religion (ESR), Richmond, Indiana, a seminary in the Quaker tradition, is hiring a full-time, faculty position in Peace and Justice Studies, open rank, beginning July 1, 2022. Applicants should demonstrate an ability to teach courses that combine the school’s commitments to holistic learning, deep listening, caring community, and contemplative spirituality with contemporary approaches to conflict transformation, restorative justice, race, gender, ecology, economic justice, queer studies, and/or other intersections.  Ideally, this faculty member will also offer courses that connect peace and justice to ESR’s other programs and curricular needs – for example, theopoetics, theology and culture, spirituality, ethics, writing, and interfaith dialogue.  The successful candidate will direct the MA in Peace and Social Transformation, as well as teach a standard load of six courses per year.  ESR offers courses in face-to-face, Zoom, blended, and fully online formats, both in traditional semesters and 2-week intensives.  Candidates should demonstrate a capacity to adapt to these formats, as well as engage students who range from LGBTQ+ trinitarians, unaffiliated seekers, and non-theist Friends.  We particularly encourage applications from Quaker scholars; applicants must be committed to working within a Quaker ethos that values integrity, consensus decision-making, equality, justice, and peacemaking.  A completed PhD is preferred, but ABD may also be acceptable, provided the degree is in hand within one year of employment. This scholar in Peace & Justice will also offer courses that connect peace and justice to ESR’s other programs and curricular needs, e.g:  theopoetics, theology and culture, spirituality, ethics, writing, and interfaith dialogue.

ESR is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer. We encourage applications from people of color, people who identify as women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and other underrepresented groups.

Review of applications will begin Nov. 15, 2021, with on campus interviews scheduled in February, 2022. No applications will be accepted after Dec. 31, 2021. Please send application letter, CV, writing sample, sample course syllabus, statement of diversity, and names of four professional references to:
