Habib University seeks faculty applications for its program in Comparative Liberal Studies (CLS) in the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. The program is a global first and seeks to institutionalize the paradigm shifts in the humanities over the past half century in a postcolonial context. Through a comparative approach broadly defined, and across humanistic forms of knowledge, the program seeks to cultivate a strenuous transdisciplinary and global universality, including through Habib University’s flagship Liberal Core to which CLS is closely linked.

We are inviting applications for multiple, open-rank positions from candidates with strong research and teaching credentials in the fields of philosophy and religious studies. Specialism is open, although those with expertise in Islamic philosophy, world philosophy, and modern world religions are especially encouraged to apply. All CLS faculty contribute substantially to the teaching of Habib’s Liberal Core and all will assist in the establishment of a CLS major. All candidates should demonstrate a transdisciplinary approach to research and pedagogy. Successful candidates can anticipate the course load not to exceed 3-2. Recruitment is rolling, with appointments beginning on August 1, 2018. Candidates in the final stages of their Ph.D. may also apply.

Successful candidates will bear the following profile:
- Doctoral degree
- Excellent teaching and scholarly credentials
- Passion for undergraduate education
- Intellectual curiosity
- Ability to work well in teams in an interdisciplinary environment

Applications from women candidates are highly encouraged. Experience in a U.S. (or comparable) liberal arts environment is preferred.
