Employment Opportunities at Wyoming Catholic College

Open Job Postings

Wyoming Catholic College seeks to a hire a professor capable of teaching our music courses for non-majors in a highly interdisciplinary environment.  The ideal candidate will be capable of teaching least one other subject in our integrated, pre-set curriculum. The professor is expected to grow to appreciate the wider curriculum of the College as a whole, and to work to integrate the particular courses he or she will teach with the various strands of the curriculum. The position is full-time.

The applicant should be capable of collaborating with our inter-disciplinary faculty to develop, teach, and mentor colleagues into teaching two music courses: 1.) a freshman course that will be experiential and elementary in nature, providing a basic introduction to singing and solfège while introducing reflections about the nature of music along the lines suggested by classic authors of antiquity and their successors in the Catholic philosophical tradition, and 2.) a second upper level course devoted to the study of the history of music in its essential dimensions, and to place in a larger historical, aesthetic, philosophical and theological context the works they will listen to and discuss. The hope is that students would come away not only with a basic chronological framework for great composers and their music but also a fundamental understanding of and ability to communicate how the content of this course can illuminate and be illuminated by other disciplines the students have already studied.

The applicant will preferably have a doctorate. Especially desired is a candidate who has benefited from a traditional liberal arts education that will enable him or her to teach music with a sympathetic awareness of the principles, methods, and Great Books of other disciplines. A mature understanding and appreciation of the spiritual and religious dimensions of great art will make the applicant more suitable to the overall educational mission of Wyoming Catholic College.

The applicant should understand and agree with the vision and mission of Wyoming Catholic College as articulated in the Philosophical Vision Statement and the Catalog. This understanding should be manifested in the letter of intent.

Interested applicants may wish to apply for the part-time position of Director of Sacred Music, also posted on our website. A candidate who would like to fulfill both positions, would either receive a 3-credit reduction of his or her teaching load, or be paid on an overload basis for the position.

Faculty at Wyoming Catholic College are committed to teaching and serving students as their first and foremost responsibility. At the beginning of each academic year, all Catholic faculty make a Profession of Faith and take the Oath of Fidelity, and non-Catholic faculty make a pledge to respect the teachings of the Catholic Church. Faculty are typically required to teach a course load of 12 hours per week, to direct one or more theses, and to assist in some administrative duties. Faculty at WCC are committed to teaching and serving students as their first and foremost responsibility. Salary and benefits are competitive.

A letter of intent, a curriculum vitae, and three names of academic reference (letters will be requested at a later date) should be sent to the acting Academic Dean, Kyle Washut, Wyoming Catholic College, 306 Main St., Lander, WY 82520, or by email to kwashut@wyomingcatholic.edu. Applications preferred by November 1st.

Wyoming Catholic College seeks to hire an adjunct professor to lead the College’s sacred music program. This program is to be led in keeping with the language of the College’s Philosophical Vision Statement: “Wyoming Catholic College will establish and cultivate a proper campus culture through the liturgy, sacraments, and music of the Catholic Church integrated into the life of the College.” The college’s extra-curricular mixed choir sings a repertoire of traditional sacred chant, polyphony, and hymns in the context of weekly Liturgies. They are expected to sing on Sundays, and at key moments of the College calendar: e.g., Commencement, the Patronal Feast, the Sacred Triduum, and Convocation.

The College treats this position as equivalent to one section of 3-credit hour teaching, so it does not anticipate that running the sacred music program will require more than 15 hours a week of work, including the weekly choir rehearsal.  When able within this time, the Director of Sacred Music is asked to provide additional support, to the Byzantine and Roman Rite chaplains and to students wishing to lead congregational singing at daily Mass and at Byzantine services, but the primary focus will be leading the College choir for Sundays and other key days. Qualified candidates may wish to apply for the full-time faculty position, also posted on our website. A candidate who would like to fulfill both positions, would either receive a 3-credit reduction of his or her teaching load, or be paid on an overload basis for the position.
