The School of Public Affairs (SPA) in the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions at Arizona State University invites applications for a Visiting Professor to be known as the “Neely Visiting Professor of Religion and Public Policy” (non-tenure eligible, one year appointment). The position is expected to start in the Spring of 2020. The candidate is expected to teach one course a semester for SPA or another unit of the Watts College, engage in research and community outreach on religion and public policy, and interact with SPA and Watts College faculty, and possibly, other units at ASU conducting research and education in religion and public policy, such as the Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict. The candidate is also expected to connect faculty and students in SPA and the Watts College to the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona, which has provided financial support for this position. More specifically, the Neely Professor should be the conduit through which faculty in the Watts College are introduced to the broader religious community, in order to explore the convergence of religion and public policy.
