Position available as Associate or Full Professor in Asian Humanities
The Department welcomes candidates who work across multiple genres and media, from classical to contemporary periods, and in any Asian languages. They are particularly interested in a scholar and teacher who combines intellectual breadth and scholarly distinction in his or her field with a commitment to programmatic leadership and growth.
The successful candidate will join several tenured and tenure-line faculty specializing in Chinese, Japanese, Hindi, Korean, and Urdu literature and media cultures, as well as sixteen continuing lecturer faculty in Chinese, Hindi-Urdu, Japanese, and Korean language in the newly-formed Department of Asian Languages and Cultures. As a new member of a growing department, the candidate should bring excellence in research and teaching, as well as enthusiasm and creativity to developing undergraduate curricula, and, at a future date, building a competitive graduate program.
Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2017 and the position is open until filled.
