Phillips Academy seeks a full-time Instructor in History and Social Science to begin in September of 2023. We are interested in candidates who are enthusiastic about teaching up and down the curriculum, from ninth through twelfth grade, and particularly in our diploma-requirement courses. We are also especially interested in candidates with expertise in African American history. We seek dynamic candidates who will be active participants not only in the academic program but also in the athletics/fitness and residential programs at this boarding school.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Please submit a cover letter (addressed to the Dean of Faculty) and résumé through the following application portal.
Please also provide two letters of reference either through the portal or by asking each recommender to e-mail a pdf to email@example.com with your full name and the position for which you’re applying noted in the subject line. We are not able to accept other materials by e-mail or anything by regular mail.
Phillips Academy is an intentionally diverse residential school committed to creating an equitable and inclusive community in which students from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and experiences learn and grow together. The ideal candidate embraces and supports this commitment. In your cover letter, please explain your experience and/or interest in working in such a school community.
Phillips Academy requires that all student-facing faculty, staff, and administrators, subject to disability and religious accommodation exceptions under federal and state law, be up to date with their COVID vaccination, which includes any boosters that have been added to meet the CDC definition of “up to date,” which now includes the new bivalent booster. Furthermore, although faculty will be expected to perform their duties in person, there may be some students who need to learn remotely, and so faculty may be required to teach in a hybrid mode—i.e., with some students in person and others online.
Phillips Academy is committed to equal employment opportunity and providing reasonable accommodations to applicants with physical and/or mental disabilities. We value and encourage diversity and solicit applications from all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, genetic information, veteran status, military service, application for military service or any other characteristic protected by law. Any offers of employment will be contingent upon successful CORI/SORI and fingerprinting background checks, as well as unrestricted authorization to work in the United States.
