Augustana College: Conrad J. Bergendoff Fellowship

I have just come across the following announcement that may be of interest to some:


Augustana College invites applications for a Conrad J. Bergendoff Fellowship in Religion, a program designed to foster professional development in undergraduate teaching. Preference will be given to candidates who have recently completed or will complete a Ph.D. by August 1, 2009.

The Bergendoff Fellow will be expected to teach seven class-sections over three terms; five sections to be chosen from one or two of the Christian Traditions offerings – American Christianities, Christian Ethics, Christian Origins, Christian Scriptures, Christian Theology.

To reduce the number of preparations, the Bergendoff Fellow will be scheduled to teach multiple sections of the same class. Other expectations include participation in the Augustana College programs designed to help new faculty develop their pedagogical skills, and one on-campus presentation of scholarly work.

The Bergendoff Fellowship is a one year term appointment renewable once, contingent on budgetary needs and demonstrated excellence in the classroom. Full time salary and benefits provided.

Questions may be directed to the chair of the department, Ritva Williams, at
