The Provost’s Office at Calvin University invites applications to the inaugural De Vries Postdoctoral Teaching Fellows Program.


Calvin University aims to appoint a cohort of up to five fellows. Fellows will be appointed to a two-year term (2022-2024) in an academic department and possible affiliation with one of Calvin University’s centers or institutes. Each fellow will teach the equivalent of 2/3 of a full teaching load for the department in which they are appointed or in Calvin’s core curriculum and be encouraged to pursue scholarship. Together, the cohort will engage in structured professional development opportunities – mentorship, as well as seminars and workshops focused on various modes of teaching and learning, faith integration, diversity, equity and inclusion, and public scholarship, among other topics. A primary goal of the experience is equipping Christian scholars for successful careers in higher education.


We welcome applications in the following fields: Art (ceramics, visual culture, drawing, and graphic design), Biology, Chemistry, Economics, Geology, History, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science (American government), Psychology, and Religion (Christian theology).


Candidates should have completed the Ph.D. no earlier than summer 2020; ABD will be considered, as long as the degree will be obtained by Fall 2023. Unfortunately, for these positions we are only able to consider applicants who will have permission to work in the United States for the duration of the program.


Preference will be given to candidates with broad interdisciplinary interests; demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; ability to integrate questions of meaning, significance, and ethics into all levels of coursework; and commitment to engaging students beyond the classroom.


Interested candidates should submit (1) a CV; (2) a cover letter describing commitment to the Christian faith, responding to the mission of Calvin University, and outlining teaching and research interests; and (3) contact information for three references by January 15.


Teaching fellows should demonstrate awareness of and commitment to establishing relationships and positive communication across multiple dimensions of diversity including, but not limited to, race, gender, physical limitations, class, or religious perspectives. Calvin is building a tradition of diversity and accessibility and welcomes applications from persons whose personal characteristics will further that commitment. Calvin does not discriminate in the employment of individuals on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, disability, sex, or age. Calvin University is an educational agency of the Christian Reformed Church and, in compliance with Title VII and other applicable law, reserves the right to give preference in employment based upon religion.


Each fellow will be provided housing and a modest relocation allowance, as well as allowances for professional travel, and scholarly materials.


Questions about this opportunity should be first directed to Matt Lundberg, Director of the de Vries Institute for Global Faculty Development (
