Candler School of Theology invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track position in Latina/o/x Studies to begin in the fall of 2022. Appointments can be made at any rank including Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor.

 

The successful candidate will have a research focus within Latina/o/x Studies that is relevant to theological and religious studies.  The discipline is open and includes but is not limited to ethics, sociology of religion, systematic theology, practical theology, preaching, and religious education.
