The Department of Theology at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a full time faculty position as Director of the Marten Program for Homiletics and Liturgics (https://theology.nd.edu/graduate-programs/initiatives/marten-program/about). The Director of the Marten Program bears the primary responsibility for teaching the introductory and advanced preaching courses. The candidate may also teach other graduate or undergraduate courses depending on departmental needs and the candidate’s areas of expertise. This position is open rank as either a tenured or tenure-track position, or an appointment as a non tenure-track Professor of the Practice.
The Director of the Marten Program is responsible for maintaining and building this program in accordance with the donors, who envisioned it to be a nation-wide program for the improvement of preaching in the Catholic Church in all its dimensions. As such the Marten Director works in collaboration with the Department Chair and the Director of the M.Div. program to maintain existing programming (including the annual Marten Lectures and regular preaching conferences) and to develop new programming related to preaching.
The successful candidate will be an experienced preacher. An ability to form pastoral leaders for a diverse Church and world is required. A doctoral degree in homiletics, liturgical studies, pastoral/practical theology, or an allied theological discipline is preferred. Likewise experience in ordained or lay ecclesial ministry in the Catholic Church and administrative experience are preferred.
