Two new openings (Garrett-Evangelical and St. Olaf College)

Tim,

Greetings from Evanston! I hope all is going well for you in your work with ISAAC. I am writing on behalf of the faculty search committee for a position here at Garrett in Systematic Theology. As you can see from the attached description we are very interested in identifying mid to senior level candidates for consideration. The successful candidate for this position would be working very closely with Nancy Bedford and myself as well as with Brent Waters and Ken Vaux. The person would be working with our Master’s level students and with our doctoral program. We would be most interested in someone who saw her work as contributing to making each of these programs world class. We are especially interested in identifying candidates who are of Asian/Asian-American descent and who are conversant in both the scholarship and ecclesial realities that emerge from these communities. We would deeply appreciate your help in this task. I look forward to hearing from you.
