Contemporary Islam in the Americas

The Department of Religious Studies at DePaul University invites applicants for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning July 2023. We are looking for a candidate who specializes in Contemporary Islam in the Americas. Scholars working on critical approaches to gender and/or race are particularly encouraged to apply. We are interested in applicants from Religious Studies and allied disciplines whose research and teaching complement the interests and strengths of our interdisciplinary department.

DePaul University is the nation's largest Catholic university and the largest private university in Chicago, with more than 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students. This vibrant, diverse, and urban university provides a comprehensive liberal arts education and emphasizes both teaching and research.


DePaul seeks candidates with demonstrated cultural competencies to include research, teaching, and service in diverse learning communities. We strongly encourage women, minorities, and candidates from other underrepresented groups to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with a Ph.D., but advanced ABDs will be considered if they expect to defend by the start date.
