The Department of Religious Studies seeks to hire a scholar of South Asian religions. Applicants are welcome from a wide variety of methodological approaches, including textual, historiographical, philosophical, psychological, and/or ethnographic. This person must be capable of teaching introductory and advanced courses in S. Asian religions to an undergraduate audience coming from a wide variety of majors. The position requires competence and comfort with teaching our introductory course (the Nature and Experience of Religion) a minimum of once each semester.  The Religious Studies Department has a history of continued scholarship, excellence in teaching, and commitment to service and is looking for an individual to maintain these standards.
