The Theology Department at Loyola University Maryland invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Theology with a primary specialization in Comparative Theology, to begin July 2023. We are looking for a candidate committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching at a dynamic liberal arts university who can continue a productive research program. Applicants should be familiar both with Christian theology and with another religious tradition, including proficiency in the relevant languages needed for primary research. The successful candidate must have a PhD or equivalent degree completed by the time of employment.

Our department offers a BA in Theology and an MTS (Master of Theological Studies); we also participate in the core curriculum and in several interdisciplinary programs, including Peace & Justice Studies and Catholic Studies. In addition to teaching undergraduate and master's-level courses in their area of specialty, applicants must be able to teach a one-semester undergraduate introductory course in theology, encompassing an introduction to Scripture, soundings in the theological tradition, and contemporary theological questions. We highly value the ability and motivation to collaborate with other faculty members both inside and outside the department.

Through our recently established Office of Equity and Inclusion, we are committed to providing an environment where everyone can learn, grow, and thrive.
