JOHN BROWN UNIVERSITY seeks a full-time faculty member to teach in the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) program and to coordinate the institution’s Gateway Seminar course. Responsibilities include but are not limited to teaching undergraduate courses in two of the PPE areas, overseeing the Gateway Seminar, participating in the activities of the Center for Faith and Flourishing, and helping the PPE program to grow. This position will report to the appropriate division chair (depending on the primary discipline taught) and work closely with the dean of undergraduate studies and the director of the Center for Faith and Flourishing.
Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, JBU’s newest minor, provides our students with an opportunity to explore, in an interdisciplinary fashion, three central disciplines that investigate who we are, how we organize, and how we exchange ideas, goods, and services. The minor’s core centers on a two-semester sequence of PPE team taught courses, with additional courses in the three respective disciplines. PPE resides in JBU’s Honors Scholars Program, but students inside and outside the program can take the courses and the minor.
The Gateway Seminar is an introduction to the purpose and method of Christian higher education and the distinctive mission of John Brown University, the communal intellectual life, and the application of a Christian worldview through exploration of a particular topic. This course also supports students in their transition to JBU. The course must be taken during the student’s first semester at JBU.
The Center for Faith and Flourishing was established in 2019 after JBU received donor commitments of more than half a million dollars. The center aims to express, defend, and promote the university’s historic mission of educating for head, heart, and hand. Principled commitment to our Christian beliefs makes us more, and not less, open-minded to opposing points of view. Similarly, seeking individual human flourishing makes us more, and not less, concerned for the good of society as a whole, because humans can flourish only in broader social networks that allow them to discover and to express who they are—and what they are meant to do with the gift of life. In addition to its support for first-year programming and PPE, the center supports lectures and debates to foster open discussion about challenging topics; student reading groups and colloquia; and other extracurricular activities.
An earned doctorate is preferred, master’s degree required. Candidates must have expertise in one of the PPE disciplines and the ability to teach in a second. A desire to help new students succeed is also essential. Candidates must demonstrate the ability to integrate faith and learning in their teaching. Effective teaching experience in higher education, evidence of scholarly potential, and a commitment to Christian higher education are essential. Employees must adhere to all University policies. Faculty must be in agreement with the Employee Expectations, Faculty Employment Objectives, and Articles of Faith.
Position begins August 1, 2020. Screening process begins immediately and continues until the position is filled.
