Dear Professor Dumit,
I am Christopher Seaton, a member of a search committee currently looking to fill a tenure-track faculty position in Theatre here at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. I am writing to invite you to share the attached job ad with soon-to-defend graduate students in your department who might be interested in pursuing a career in academics at a liberal arts college in an urban setting. Considering your institution’s reputation for training talented faculty from diverse backgrounds, I believe encouraging potential candidates you might know to apply could help diversify our applicant pool and ultimately result in us hiring the best candidate possible.
If you would like to discuss the position please feel free to email me. I can put you or a potential candidate in contact with the chair of the search committee. Thanks for your time and consideration.
