Assistant or Associate Professor - Manhattan College
Assistant/Associate Professor of Religious Studies
Manhattan College seeks a tenure-track assistant/associate professor of Religious Studies in the field of Islamic Studies who will also direct an academic center dedicated to fostering understanding among Christians, Jews, and Muslims through the study of the Holocaust, genocide, and other examples of ethno-religious conflict. This center expands upon the College’s highly successful Holocaust Resource Center. The director will teach two courses per semester, including courses in Islam and other topics related to the center’s mission, as well as courses that meet the College’s Religious Studies requirements. Ph.D., a record of excellent teaching, and an established research agenda required.
The College’s location in the Riverdale section of New York City and its dedication to fulfilling both the Catholic and the Lasallian commitment to social justice mean that the director of the Center must be dedicated to engaging in community outreach and bringing together diverse constituencies. The director organizes public lectures, course presentations, the publication of interviews and other materials, and the creation of teaching resources. The director must also possess administrative skills, preferably would have some fund-raising experience, and must work closely with faculty, administrators, staff, and students to support the mission of the Center.
