We are currently appointing faculty to teach undergraduate courses in the arts and humanities beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year. We welcome applications from people at all career stages. We are especially interested in applicants who take an interdisciplinary approach to their work. We will consider applicants with degrees in art history, music history, theater, film, or literature, particularly comparative or world literature.

The Minerva Schools at KGI (the Keck Graduate Institute) prepare students to become innovators and global leaders in a wide variety of disciplines. All Minerva classes are seminars, not lecture courses. Students live together in residence halls, traveling to 7 different cities over their four undergraduate years of study. We teach using the Minerva Active Learning Forum, a web-based platform that supports real-time, synchronous seminars (ranging from 15-19 students) with high levels of student-faculty interaction. The majority of our students are undergraduates pursuing four-year degrees.

Because all classes are taught on our technology platform, you have complete flexibility to teach at Minerva via computer from any geographic location where there are good internet connections. Students live and study in many global cities, so teaching days and hours often fall outside the range of a typical business day.

Ph.D. required. ABD applicants accepted if the degree will be completed by August 1, 2018. Please apply using this link: http://apply.interfolio.com/46482

In these courses, students examine the development of a wide variety of ideas and forms of expression that exert a major influence on modern America. Through lectures and class discussions, and through the writing of essays, students learn to interpret literary, historical, and philosophical texts and to conduct independent critical assessment of documents and ideas.

The sequence of courses, Humanities 1 through 5, meets the humanities and writing requirement of Revelle College. Instruction in university-level writing is part of all five courses, but students in Humanities 1 and 2 (six units each) receive intensive writing instruction.

For detailed description of the Revelle College humanities requirement, see Revelle College, General-Education Requirements, Humanities, in the UCSD General Catalog.

Revelle College, the first college at UC San Diego, was founded in the early 1960's when the Great Books programs piloted by the University of Chicago and Columbia University influenced humanities curricula throughout the nation. The original Revelle College faculty, led by the founder, Roger Revelle, believed that educated people should be acquainted with the literary, historical, philosophical, scientific, and social ideas and problems that have defined our culture.

As the first college at UCSD, Revelle College has a dedicated cadre of senior faculty loyal to the College's classical ideal of education. The College's core Humanities sequence has the highest percentage of senior faculty instructors of all the University's core courses. The Revelle faculty has included Nobel Prize winners such as Harold Urey, Francis Crick, and, recently, Roger Tsien, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry.
