    The Department of Theology at Mount St. Mary's University seeks an outstanding teacher-scholar for the position of Assistant Professor (tenure-track) beginning August 2017. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching and research in moral theology with a secondary proficiency in comparative religions. The department seeks a colleague who will be able to contribute to teaching in the university's common liberal arts curriculum that includes: an ethics course, Ethics and the Human Good; a two-semester sequence of theology courses, Belief in Today‚Äôs World and Encountering Christ; and theology courses within the undergraduate offerings of Global Encounters (http://msmary.edu/academics/academic-catalog/UndergradCatalog2016-17_final.pdf). Teaching load: 7 courses per year. Successful candidates will share our commitment to the dignity and solidarity of all persons and the value of intercultural understanding. Ph.D. is expected; ABD candidates will also be considered.

    Mount St. Mary's University, the second oldest Catholic university in America, seeks faculty members eager to engage and support our Catholic identity.  Application materials should discuss how you might contribute to the University's Catholic liberal arts mission http://msmary.edu/about-the-Mount/Mission.html, how theology can assist other disciplines to appreciate the unity of truth, and the role of theology in the mission of the Church.  Please send a cover letter, vita, and three letters of recommendation to resume@msmary.edu or to the following address:

    Professor Collinge,

    I think that this position at Mount Saint Mary's has been filled by now.  It was reposted this past September (see the CTS posting administered by Prof. Rademacher).  I applied, but was informed that my name did not make the short list.  I presume that, by now, a decision as been reached at The Mount.
