Theology position (Catholic)

PROFESSOR OF THEOLOGY (Assistant, Associate, or Full) Starting September 2008

Wyoming Catholic College seeks to hire a Professor of Theology. The applicant must have already completed a doctorate in theology and be capable of teaching the full range of theology courses (see revised Catalog, pp. 56–66).

He is expected to be both proficient in and desirous of teaching theology from a Thomistic perspective, in full fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. He must be deeply conversant with Sacred Scripture and able to relate moral and dogmatic theology to Scripture and vice versa. The applicant should also be conversant with the perennial philosophy (philosophia perennis) and ideally with the Latin language.

Especially desired is a candidate who has received a traditional liberal arts education that enables him to teach the discipline of theology with a sympathetic and intelligent awareness of the principles, methods, and great books of other disciplines. The applicant must deeply understand and agree with the vision and mission of Wyoming Catholic College as articulated in the Philosophical Vision Statement, the Catalog, and other printed materials (available upon request). This understanding and agreement must be manifested in the letter of intent.

The professor is required to teach a course load of 12 hours per week in theology as well as in other disciplines he is competent to teach, and to assist in some administrative duties. Faculty at WCC are committed to teaching and serving students as their first and foremost responsibility. At the beginning of each academic year, all Catholic faculty make a profession of faith and take the oath of fidelity. Of course, prior to joining the faculty, a mandatum from the Bishop of Cheyenne must be requested and received by theologians.

Rank and salary are commensurate to teaching experience; salary and benefits are competitive.

A letter of intent with curriculum vitae should be sent to Dr. John R. Mortensen, Wyoming Catholic College, P.O. Box 750, Lander, WY 82520, or by email to
