Princeton Theological Seminary invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Pastoral Theology at the rank of Assistant Professor. Candidates must display a vital theological and ecclesiastical understanding of pastoral theology and hold the M.Div. and Ph.D. degrees or their equivalents. The successful candidate is expected to teach a broad range of introductory and advanced courses in pastoral care and counseling in all masters’ degree programs and to offer Ph.D.-level seminars in Pastoral Theology. In addition, he or she will demonstrate in-depth knowledge of one or more specialized areas of research and practice, such as intercultural pastoral care; models of care and leadership in a congregational context; pastoral responses to mental illness; healthcare and behavioral health ministry; gender issues in pastoral care; developmental psychology; and/or the psychology of religion. Preference will be given to a scholar with multicultural competencies in pastoral theology and with past experience in care professions, such as congregational ministry, counseling, institutional chaplaincy, community health agencies, social work, or mental health advocacy.
