Princeton Theological Seminary invites applications for a junior faculty position on tenure track in Pastoral Theology to begin July 1, 2012. Candidates must display a vital theological and ecclesiastical understanding of pastoral theology in the context of practical theology and hold the M.Div. and Ph.D. degrees or their accepted equivalents. The successful candidate is expected to teach introductory and advanced courses in pastoral care in the M.Div., Th.M., and M.A.T.S. degree programs of the seminary and to offer Ph.D.-level seminars in Pastoral Theology. In addition, he or she will demonstrate in-depth knowledge of one or more of the following specialized areas of research and practice:  (1) race, ethnicity, and culture as dimensions of pastoral care, with emphasis on ethnographic and/or post-colonialist approaches; (2) persons as members of groups, with special knowledge of sociology, organizational theory, or anthropology; (3) the public dimensions of pastoral care and the ways congregational systems of care are responsive to the needs of diaspora, local, and international communities; (4) grief, death, and dying.
As Princeton Theological Seminary is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), all faculty are expected to be able to work constructively within a theological environment informed by the Reformed tradition.
A letter of interest, curriculum vitae, detailed descriptions of two proposed courses (one introductory course, the other in an area of specialization), and three letters of recommendation should be addressed to James F. Kay, Dean of Academic Affairs; Princeton Theological Seminary; P.O. Box 821; Princeton, NJ 08542-0803, or electronically atacademic.dean@ptsem.edu.  Applications are due by November 4, 2011.
