Dear Sewanee Clergy Alumni and Alumnae:

The School of Theology has begun a search for a faculty position in Christian Ethics and Theology. We invite you to share the following position description with interested individuals. Thank you, Peg Palisano


The School of Theology of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, an accredited seminary of the Episcopal Church, invites applications for a full-time position in Christian Ethics and Theology to begin in July 2007.

The University provides equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment. No person shall be discriminated against in employment because of race, color, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, veteran’s status, or religion (except for those positions in the School of Theology and the chaplain’s office where religious affiliation is a necessary qualification).

Responsibilities will include teaching required and elective courses in Christian ethics and moral and systematic theology for the M.Div. and M.A. degrees, with participation in other degree and lifetime education programs. The position also brings with it the range of engagement in the worship, work, and witness of the seminary community that accompanies faculty ministry. Courses in ethics and theology at Sewanee seek to give an account of Christian faith and the ethos and mission of the church in thoughtful interaction with Scripture and tradition on one hand and, on the other hand, with the cultural situations of the modern world. The successful candidate will demonstrate commitment to preparation for parish ministry.

Qualifications for the position include demonstrated professional competence in teaching theology and active commitment to the mission of the church. Preference will be given to candidates who have a Ph.D. or Th.D., thorough knowledge of and training in ethics, moral or systematic theology, Christian social ethics, and experience in teaching in those fields. A knowledge of and appreciation for Anglican tradition is expected.

This is a tenure track appointment. Applications from Anglicans and members of ecumenical partners of the Episcopal Church are encouraged. Salary and rank will depend on experience and qualifications. A letter of application, a full curriculum vitae, a writing sample, and three letters of reference should be received by March 1, 2007. Letters of reference should be sent directly to the person named below.

Send letter of nomination or application to: The Rev. Dr. Donald S. Armentrout, School of Theology, University of the South, 335 Tennessee Avenue, Sewanee, TN 37383-0001.
