Pacific School of Religion - Faculty Position in United Methodist Studies
Faculty position in United Methodist Studies

Pacific School of Religion (PSR) is seeking a full-time faculty member to teach courses in United Methodist history, polity, and theology as well as courses in a candidate’s field of expertise. The faculty person will be expected to contribute to the cultivation of a strong denominational ethos among our United Methodist students and to foster collaborative relations between PSR and the United Methodist Church. We are seeking an innovative theological educator who embraces robust interdisciplinarity in their teaching and scholarship to reimagine theological education and the role of faculty in facilitating it.

PSR’s groundbreaking curriculum relies on faculty members whose scholarship and teaching bring together the best practices of non-profit organizations, the unique wisdom of faith communities, a diversity of activist strategies, models of social entrepreneurship, and the traditional disciplines of theological education and pathways of congregational ministry. This is a three-year, renewable, non-tenure track position, with rank open based on experience.

Pacific School of Religion (PSR) is a progressive, multi-denominational seminary and center for social justice, which prepares a diverse cadre of spiritually-rooted leaders with the vision, resilience, and skill to create a world where all can thrive. PSR has strong ties to the United Methodist Church, approved by the United Methodist University Senate; the United Church of Christ; and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Located in the San Francisco Bay Area and adjacent to the University of California at Berkeley campus, PSR is a member of the Graduate Theological Union (GTU), an ecumenical and interfaith consortium of seminaries, centers, and institutes. PSR is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

The faculty member will teach courses in United Methodist studies and in the candidate’s field of expertise. Additional expertise in African American womanist homiletics, leadership, or ethics; or Latinx homiletics, leadership, or ethics is highly desirable; as is the candidate’s ability to teach in Spanish or other languages in addition to English. The faculty member will teach four courses—in consultation with the Dean—each academic year for our students as well as students in the GTU. The use of technology and online instruction for courses is necessary. The faculty colleague is expected to publish creative and rigorous scholarship in a variety of formats, and to be a thought-leader in addressing issues facing communities of color, migrants, LGBTQI communities, communities that are economically disadvantaged, and the environment. In addition, active participation in the life of the school through commitment to the school’s mission, service on committees, participation at worship and community events, and service to the broader community are essential.

We are seeking candidates with a PhD, ThD, or equivalent, who have a demonstrated commitment to
diversity, academic excellence, creativity in teaching, community building, and meaningful connections with historically under-represented groups and institutions. Persons from underrepresented groups within the profession are especially encouraged to apply and will have the opportunity to participate in a cohort of minority scholars of a similar rank with the support of one of the most diverse administrative teams in the Association of Theological Schools. For more details, see https://psr.edu/about/jobs/

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and three professional letters of recommendation. These
materials can be sent to Professor Aaron Brody, Pacific School of Religion by email, abrody@psr.edu .

Founded in 1853, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary serves the church, the academy, and the world by preparing emergent religious leaders, scholars, and public theologians. The Seminary equips its students to proclaim the good news of the Gospel; to foster deep spirituality in the lives of others; to serve with critical sensibilities for intercultural and global engagement and commitment to racial equity; and to lead transformative change for the wellbeing and flourishing of all persons and creation.

The next president of Garrett will provide spiritual, theological/academic, and organizational leadership to Garrett students, faculty, and staff. Working collaboratively with the Board of Trustees and the Seminary’s Leadership Team, the President will serve as a primary figure in not only shaping the vision and mission for the Seminary, but also ensuring the effective implementation of its mission and vision.

Building on the outstanding work of Dr. Lallene Rector, the President will continue to position the Seminary as a preeminent leader within the Association of Theological Schools. As the landscape of theological education continues to shift, the Seminary seeks a President who will cultivate a culture of creativity, ingenuity, and innovation.
