The Faculty is interested in applicants who, while possibly identifying with a particular tradition, can work effectively throughout our ministry program-which serves students preparing for ministerial vocations in Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and other contexts-as well as contribute to Harvard Divinity School's commitments to justice and healing related to ethnic, gender, racial, religious, and sexual difference. Especially welcome are candidates whose pedagogy is enriched by experience in chaplaincy or community care.
