Position in Thomistic moral theology at Providence Colllege, RI

The Department of Theology, Providence College (Providence, RI [Rhode Island, USA]), is now advertising a position at the Assistant Professor (tenure track) level, to commence in the fall, 2006. Here is the description:

The ad mentions a mission statement but doesn’t tell you precisely where to find it (Crying.). I think that I found it here. This is a wonderful place, with wonderful, decent people. If you’re in the market for a position of this sort, don’t hesitate to contact them.
