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.
