Arthur J. Ennis Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship

Villanova University

Posting Number: 2019673F

Position Title: Arthur J. Ennis Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship

Position Type: Faculty

Location: Villanova, PA

Recruitment Type: Internal/External Applicants

Work Schedule: full-time/9-months

Department: 151-Augustine and Culture Seminar Program

Position Summary:

The Augustine and Culture Seminar Program seeks scholars in the Humanities to apply for the Arthur J. Ennis, O.S.A. Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship, starting in the Fall Semester 2020. This is a one-year fellowship renewable for up to three years, for a total of four years. We welcome applications from scholars who can both complement and broaden our current interdisciplinary faculty working in the disciplines of Literature, Theology, History, Philosophy, Political Science, and Classics. The deadline for applications is January 10, 2020.

Villanova is a Roman Catholic University sponsored by the Augustinian order. Diversity and inclusion have been and will continue to be an integral component of Villanova University’s mission. The University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and seeks candidates who understand, respect and can contribute to the University’s mission and values.

Duties and Responsibilities:

Ennis fellows teach three courses of the Augustine and Culture Seminar each semester. ACS is a two semester writing intensive interdisciplinary seminar, required of all first year students. Each class is capped at sixteen students. The students are expected to write a minimum of thirty pages per semester.

ACS 1000 focuses on texts of antiquity and the Middle Ages, including Augustine’s Confessions. ACS 1001 continues the emphasis on self in the world through the lens of modernity, starting with Shakespeare and continuing to the present. The course gives attention to the Catholic intellectual Tradition and its ongoing mission to defend the dignity of the human person, recognize the need for human solidarity, and serve the common good.

Fellows participate in the ACS Program’s faculty development program as well as the ACS lecture series. There are no other service requirements.

Minimum Qualifications:

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a Humanities discipline.

Preferred Qualifications:

Successful candidates will demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching in the Humanities, and an interest in teaching the thought and influence of Augustine and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. In addition, since ACS explores a wide and diverse range of significant voices through human history, we seek teacher/scholars who represent that range through their scholarship.
