As one of eight tenure-line positions associated with Southern Methodist University’s faculty cluster in urban research, this position offers opportunities for rich interdisciplinary connections among new and existing SMU faculty [https://www.smu.edu/Dedman/Research/Clusters]. The cluster fosters research on cities and urbanization from local and global perspectives. SMU’s location in Dallas, the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country, is an ideal setting for studying the opportunities and inequities that individuals, groups, and communities confront as they navigate and shape urban life.
The Department of Religion at Rice University invites applications for an Assistant Professor (TT) in the area of Science and Religion. “Science” in this sense is broadly understood to include a variety of disciplinary and methodological domains, such as the Philosophy of Science and Religion, the History of Science and Religion, Cognitive Science and Religion, Neuroscience and Religion, Religion and Environmental Science, and Religion and the Medical Humanities. Priority will be given to applicants whose work gives significant attention to questions of race, gender, or sexuality. Focuses on geographic area and religious tradition(s) are open, though applicants should be prepared to teach courses that reflect cultural and social diversity as well as methods in the study of religion. Excellence in teaching and research is expected. Rice is committed to diversity and inclusion, and women and historically underrepresented minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
