As an institution, we lay stress on developing excellent communication skills, rooted in clear analytical thinking. All humanities faculty members should be committed to developing students’ writing and oral communication skills in the course of their instruction.

We especially seek faculty who support the Founding Precepts of the College, harmonious with the beliefs of the historic Christian faith.  The Founding Precepts can be found on the following webpage: https://www.sattlercollege.org/about. Many of Sattler College’s students have experiences as religious minorities within American society. Women and candidates whose own backgrounds as social minorities will help them teach such students effectively are encouraged to apply.  

The position is full-time, with premium benefits, commencing in August 2019. Candidates should have completed a doctoral degree, or be assured of completion, by that date.
