Academic Position Opening in Classical and Early Christian Studies

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Dec 02, 2005

This employment announcement comes from Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia. Since I helped to found Christendom back in 1977, I take a special interest in the College's faculty needs. Here are the details:

The Department of Classical and Early Christian Studies at Christendom College announces that an Assistant Professorship position will be open in the Autumn of 2006. Consideration will be given to applicants at the associate level.

It is desired that a successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in hand and be a generalist in Classics with the ability to teach Greek and Latin on all undergraduate levels; facility to teach composition in both languages is expected. An interest in teaching spoken Latin is desired.

The Department would welcome a candidate with experience teaching Koine Greek and ecclesiastical Latin, as well as one who possessed a foundational knowledge of Biblical Hebrew.

As a positive expression of the specifically Catholic character of Christendom College, in accord with the desire of the Holy See as expressed in the Apostolic Constitution Ex Corde Ecclesiae, members of the faculty voluntarily make a public Profession of Faith (the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed) and take the Oath of Fidelity.

Located an hour and a half west of Washington, D.C. in the foot hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Christendom College is a small coeducational liberal arts institution dedicated to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.

Application Deadline: February 17th, 2006

Interested applicants should send a cover letter outlining their teaching philosophy and research interests, a curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, a sample of scholarly writing, and other relevant supporting material to Dr. William Edmund Fahey, Dept. of Classical & Early Christian Studies, 134 Christendom Dr., Front Royal, VA 22630. Inquiries about the position may be directed to Dr. Fahey (wfahey@christendom.edu).
