Job Description
The College of Liberal Arts of Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland, is conducting a search for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of African-American Cultural Studies.

The successful candidate will have Ph.D. in hand by August 2021, lived experience as part of a traditionally underrepresented group, published scholarly work in African-American studies, and demonstrated a student-centered philosophy consistent with teaching at a liberal arts college.

Mount St. Mary’s seeks faculty members eager to engage and support our Catholic identity.
