Full-Time Lecturer and Anisfield-Wolf SAGES Fellow - SAGES Program

Case Western Reserve University seeks candidates for up to two full-time lecturer positions beginning August 2022 in SAGES (the Seminar Approach to General Education and Scholarship). Designated as an Anisfield-Wolf SAGES Fellow, the lecturer will lead interdisciplinary, discussion-based, writing-intensive seminar-style courses that contribute to students’ understanding of racism and their appreciation of the rich diversity of human cultures.

SAGES (sages.case.edu) has created this lectureship in association with the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards (anisfield-wolf.org). Candidates should be familiar with the awards program and explain in their cover letters how their research and teaching align with its mission.

Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D. in any field by August 2022 and a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching. Teaching load is the equivalent of 3/2, which may include teaching courses for a department in the College of Arts and Sciences. Initial appointment is for one year with possible renewal for an additional year.

To be considered, a letter of application, CV, and a separate diversity statement that explains how diversity, equity, and inclusion inform your past and/or future professional experience (scholarship, teaching, service) should be submitted electronically at apply.interfolio.com/103056 by April 20, 2022. Other correspondence may be sent to Dr. Peter Whiting, Director of SAGES, Case Western Reserve University, pjw5@case.edu.
