Associate Director and Theologian-in-Residence
Collegium Institute for Catholic Thought & Culture
Applications Open: June 15-July 31 (or until the position is filled)
Collegium Institute (CI) seeks an early- to mid-career academic theologian to serve as its full-time Associate Director (AD) in the University City area of Philadelphia. The AD will assist the Executive Director in all areas, growing and developing Collegium’s program and infrastructure, and helping him manage additional part-time staff. The AD also will serve as CI’s Theologian-in- Residence, complementing the Executive Director, who is a historian, as well as its other staff scholars.
CI is an independent, scholarly foundation established in 2013 by faculty, students, alumni, and friends of the University of Pennsylvania. Its catholic mission is two-fold: first, it draws the academic community into conversation with the Catholic intellectual tradition; second, it seeks to integrate the many, diverse parts of the university through common reflection upon the truly catholic, or universal, questions that once animated the university as a coherent whole.
To these ends it coordinates lectures, panels, conferences, reading groups, academic advising and mentorships, colloquia, non-credit seminars, for-credit courses, visiting fellowships, summer seminars, interdisciplinary communities, intermural scholarly networks, artistic performances and exhibitions, a website and multimedia productions, and other programs that foster an integrated, humane, and catholic education in University City and the broader region.
