The full job ad, with all the necessary instructions for application, will be posted at the Messiah College website in the next few days, but I wanted to give a heads-up to the faithful readers of The Way of Improvement Leads Home. When the ad appears at jobs.messiah.edu you will see that we are asking for a cover letter, a vita, 3-letters of recommendation, and a completed application. The load is 4-4.
As you might imagine, we will be moving quickly on this search. Once the job ad is released we will be accepting applications immediately. I will be chairing the search.
