  • Knowledge of pedagogical best practices for in-person and online courses
  • Lab experience and technical skills
  • Leadership skills and an interest in programmatic development
  • Evidence of mentorship potential
  • Ability to work well with students, staff, and faculty in a collegial environment
  • Desire to infuse their Christian faith into all aspects of their role


The successful candidate will:

  • Commit to Christian higher education
  • Support the Providence mission, vision, and values
  • Affirm the Statement of Faith
  • Agree to abide by the Covenant of Community Life


  • To apply, submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae (CV) and statement of teaching philosophy by email to:
