The successful candidate will be a talented and dedicated academic deeply and enthusiastically committed to the Catholic mission of Belmont Abbey College. Preference will be given to those candidates who can demonstrate 1) a strong desire to teach in a Catholic, Benedictine college that aims to provide an excellent undergraduate education “in the liberal arts and sciences so that in all things God may be glorified”; 2) a philosophy of teaching that supports the approach to education expressed in St. John Paul II’s Ex Corde Ecclesiae; 3) a record of excellence in undergraduate teaching and a sense of teaching as a vocation; and 4) a knowledge of the Catholic intellectual tradition as well as the ability to articulate the ways in which the Catholic faith integrates with one’s academic discipline.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the search is completed. Please apply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line “Mathematics Search.” Include letter of application, vita, the names and contact information of at least three references, and a written response in which you explain how you might contribute to the University’s Catholic, Benedictine liberal arts mission, how your work engages with the Catholic intellectual tradition, or how your own faith tradition informs your vocation as teacher and scholar. (Evidence of teaching excellence and official transcripts are optional at this stage but required for interview.)
