September 22, 2023

The Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Yale Divinity School invite applications for a faculty position in liturgical studies with a subspecialty of liturgical history. The position may be filled at one of these ranks: assistant professor (untenured), associate professor (tenured or untenured) or professor (tenured), depending on qualifications and experience.

The Institute of Sacred Music is an interdisciplinary graduate center for the study and practice of sacred music, worship, and the related arts. Yale Divinity School provides an ecumenical environment in which students are prepared for ordained and lay ministry in diverse Christian churches and for a wide range of professional careers, including additional advanced degrees in academic and professional schools, not-for-profit work, and public service. Candidates must hold the Ph.D. or equivalent degree, in a directly related discipline, and should demonstrate strong potential for (or experience in, depending on rank) providing high quality instruction. A strong engagement with theological education, and interdisciplinary activity, particularly with music and the arts are also expected.

The successful candidate will teach two courses per term, participate in graduate student advising including thesis supervision, and will provide service in ISM, YDS, and the university. Some team-teaching with other areas in the ISM is expected, and teaching courses to undergraduates and graduate students in units beyond ISM and YDS is also possible. A letter of application with curriculum vitae and a list of three references can be submitted here. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2023. The position will remain open until filled.

Yale University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and underrepresented minorities.
