The successful applicant will serve as the Coordinator of the program and have an appointment in the Department of Education, Global Studies, Philosophy, or Psychology.
Teaching responsibilities include 3 courses (9 credit hours) per year with 1 or 2 of those courses typically serving the interdisciplinary Justice Education minor and the remainder serving the home department’s curriculum.

Preference will be given to candidates with a history of incorporating experiential learning into their teaching and an interest in the scholarship of justice pedagogy. Familiarity with the Holy Cross tradition would be considered a plus.
Ph.D. in one of the above disciplines by August, 2013, required for rank of assistant professor; ABD required for rank of instructor. Candidates should submit a letter of interest including a philosophy of teaching, a sample syllabus, CV, three letters of reference, and an unofficial graduate transcript (or photocopy) to Professor Joseph Incandela, 68 Spes Unica Hall, Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame, IN 46556.
