Western Theological Seminary (WTS), Holland, Michigan, is an evangelical and ecumenical community of faith and learning in the Reformed tradition that serves the church of Jesus Christ by preparing Christians called by God to lead the church in mission.

WTS is actively pursuing diversity in its faculty and has established a Faculty Fellow program designed to encourage applications from ABD racial-ethnic minority scholars. The Faculty Fellow will join the WTS faculty for the 2017-18 academic year. One-half teaching load will be assigned to provide time to complete the Ph.D. dissertation. Competitive salary and benefits, as well as housing assistance provided. Dr. Alvin Padilla, academic dean and vice president of academic affairs, leads the WTS faculty.

If mutually agreed, the fellowship may be extended to a second year appointment. If curricular needs exist, the Faculty Fellow may apply for a regular, full-time faculty appointment and will be given full consideration among other applicants. If this possibility does not exist, the Faculty Fellow will be equipped to enter the academic job market with a completed degree and some teaching experience.

The Faculty Fellow should be committed to the historic Christian faith, adhere to Reformed theological tradition, and embrace the mission, identity, and vision of Western Theological Seminary. The school is committed to racial-ethnic initiatives.
