Job Description
The College of Liberal Arts of Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland, is conducting a search for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of African-American Cultural Studies. Beginning in Fall 2021, the successful candidate will also guide the African and African-American Studies minor.

Applicants with doctoral degrees in cultural studies, anthropology, sociology, English, history, or a relevant field are encouraged to apply. Teaching responsibilities will include the courses Foundations of African and African American Studies, Race and Ethnicity, and other 200- and 300-level courses relevant to the candidate’s field of specialization. The successful candidate will have Ph.D. in hand by August 2021, lived experience as part of a traditionally underrepresented group, published scholarly work in African-American studies, and demonstrated a student-centered philosophy consistent with teaching at a liberal arts college.

Mount St. Mary’s seeks faculty members eager to engage and support our Catholic identity. Application materials should discuss how you might contribute to the university’s Catholic liberal arts mission, how your work engages with the Catholic intellectual tradition, or how your own faith tradition informs your vocation as teacher and scholar. A complete application will include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, a statement of teaching philosophy, and three letters of recommendation (at least two addressing teaching abilities). Review of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Application materials should be sent to:
