Eligibility, Appointment, Compensation


Lilly Fellows are appointed for two years at a rank equivalent to that of instructor. Starting salary for 2014-2016 will be $46,800 plus standard benefits, a moving allowance, and an annual professional and travel allowance.

Fellows are expected to be in residence throughout the two-year term of their appointments (summers excepted). Because of the importance of regular interaction with students and participation in the Christ College Honors College and Valparaiso University community, Fellows should reside within fifteen miles of the Valparaiso University campus; any departure from this expectation should be discussed with the Lilly Fellows Program Director prior to appointment.

Competition for Lilly Fellowships is open to persons interested in the relationship between Christianity and the academic vocation and who desire a career at a church-related college or university. Research or dissertation topics are not restricted to religion.

For appointments beginning in the academic year 2014-2016 an applicant must have received the PhD, DMA, DFA, MFA, or equivalent terminal degree no earlier than December 2012. The degree must be completed by August 2014.

Fellows will be recruited from the following disciplines: art and art history; creative writing; history; interdisciplinary studies; languages and literatures; music and music history; philosophy; religion; rhetoric; theatre history and theatre arts. Candidates will be asked to demonstrate their interest in the aims of the Lilly Fellows Program and commitment to explore teaching as a Christian vocation. 

Valparaiso University does not unlawfully discriminate and aims to employ persons of various backgrounds and experiences to help constitute a diverse community. Its entire EOE policy can be found here. In addition to strong academic qualifications and excellence in teaching, the University highly values experience in working across cultural and other significant differences. Employment at Valparaiso University will require a satisfactory criminal background check.
