Huron is completely unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. With the aim to redefine Liberal Arts education, Huron is creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement.

As the founding institution of Western University, since 1863, Huron has remained strategically small to best serve the needs of its students. We provide an elite, yet accessible, education, because every student with the passion and work ethic to positively change our world deserves to access the knowledge to understand it and the skills to shape it. Huron’s mission is to develop Leaders with Heart from all backgrounds and foster a vibrant and inclusive community and prepare students to be engaged citizens who transform the sectors they work within. Our commitment to providing the best-possible Liberal Arts education means students have many unique opportunities to enrich their learning experiences.

Building on 157 years of excellence in theological education, Huron’s Faculty of Theology is committed to providing students with the academic grounding and experiential learning they need to develop as resilient and successful Leaders with Heart, whether they go on to ordained ministry, public service, further study, or other field. The Faculty of Theology offers undergraduate (BA) courses and modules in Religion and Theology, as well as the Master of Divinity, the Master of Theological Studies, and the Master of Arts (Theology) degrees.

The Faculty of Theology at Huron invites applications for a full-time tenure-track appointment in Systematic Theology, at the rank of Assistant Professor. The appointment will commence July 1, 2021, subject to final budgetary approval.

Candidates will hold a Ph.D. or Th.D. in Systematic Theology or related field, and will have excellent qualifications in teaching and research. Candidates with research profiles in any relevant area will be considered. Preference will be given to candidates whose publication record shows demonstrated readiness to teach and supervise in the MA (Theology) program, and whose teaching experience or capacity includes Christian Doctrine at the M.Div. or M.T.S. level, and Religious Studies at the B.A. level. The successful candidate will be expected to teach 2.5 full courses per year (with a 0.5 course release in each of their first two years of employment), maintain a research program, and participate in the administrative life of the Faculty and university. The successful candidate will also support and contribute collaboratively to the mission of the Faculty of Theology, and will work well in an ecumenical and interfaith environment.

Interested candidates should forward (by email): a cover letter; an up-to-date c.v.; a summary of teaching and research interests; sample publications; a pedagogical dossier (including a statement of teaching philosophy, evidence of successful teaching, and sample course plans); and should arrange for three confidential letters of recommendation (to be sent separately) to:
