Carthage College invites applications for a three-year teaching fellowship, starting on August 15, 2014, in the Western Heritage Program. With a recent Ph.D. in any academic discipline by the time of appointment, the ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching foundational texts of the Western intellectual tradition to first-year college students.
The successful candidate will teach two sections of Western Heritage per term, participate in and help lead faculty development activities, and deliver one public lecture.
