Job Opening: Kyung-Chik Han Chair of Asian American Theology, Princeton Theological Seminar

Princeton Theological Seminary seeks a scholar to occupy the Kyung-Chik Han Chair of Asian American Theology. Applicants should be theologians (systematic, constructive, or historical) whose scholarship and teaching give critical attention to Asian American experience and ecclesial life. Other areas of specialization are open to negotiation. Candidates should be willing to contribute to the Asian American Program at PTS. Appointment at the level of associate or full professor will be made with tenure. Appointment at the level of assistant professor will be tenure track, but the appointee will only occupy the Han Chair upon successful completion of the Seminary’s tenure and promotion review process. Applicants are expected to have a portfolio of published research and teaching experience in the field and to hold a Ph.D. or its equivalent. The successful candidate will teach in all the Seminary’s masters’ and Ph.D. degree programs, pursue an active scholarly research agenda, and participate in the life of the Seminary. As Princeton Theological Seminary is related to the Presbyterian Church (USA), faculty members are expected to work constructively within an ecumenical ethos informed by the Reformed Tradition. The appointment is expected to commence July 1, 2019. Women and candidates from underrepresented communities are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants should send (1) a letter of interest; (2) a CV (including bibliography); and (3) a list of three potential recommenders to academic.dean@ptsem.edu.

Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2018. Princeton Theological Seminary is an equal opportunity employer.
