Professor of Government—American Politics

Patrick Henry College seeks a professor of government (rank negotiable) to begin in the fall of 2024. Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching and research and possess a strong Biblical worldview that aligns with historic orthodox Christian teachings. The ideal candidate will have an earned Ph.D. in Government or Political Science with the ability to provide leadership to PHC’s vibrant American Politics and Policy program and teach a variety of courses in American Politics including Congress, Presidency, Campaigns and Elections, Public Policy, State and Local Government, and an introductory course in research methods.

Candidates should be evangelical Christians, in full agreement with the College’s Statement of Faith and Biblical Foundations Statement, and supportive of the College’s Mission, Vision, and Educational Philosophy.

PHC is a private, nondenominational, SACS and TRACS-accredited institution located near Washington, D.C., in Purcellville, Virginia.  The classical liberal arts—wed to a strong Biblical foundation—are at the heart of the College’s educational philosophy.  This approach is evidenced by the College’s unique sixty-three-credit core curriculum.  PHC is known for its talented and highly motivated students and for its high academic quality.

The position is subject to the College’s verification of credentials along with other information required by law and PHC’s policies, including the successful completion of a background check. The position is pending final approval. Compensation is competitive. Review of applications will begin immediately.

To apply, submit a cover letter addressed to Dr. Mark T. Mitchell, Dean of Academic Affairs, along with curriculum vitae, a list of three references (one pastoral), a sample of scholarship (if available), and a personal statement of faith including an explanation of how faith shapes your teaching in the classroom. Please also include teaching evaluations or evidence of successful teaching if available. Application materials should be submitted to jobs@phc.edu.
