Duke University invites applications or nominations of senior scholars for appointment to the position of Smart Family Professor of Judaic Studies to begin Fall 2013, the first of two projected senior hires in our program. We will consider candidates from a wide range of academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
The University seeks candidates whose have made major contributions to the field of Jewish Studies, who can teach broadly within and beyond their areas of specialization. The holder of the Smart Professorship will further enhance the robust Jewish Studies community at Duke and the NC Triangle and play a major role in the flourishing interdisciplinary research culture at Duke, contributing to the University’s high quality undergraduate teaching, complementing our existing graduate program strengths, directing MA and PhD students in his or her field of study, and augmenting Jewish Studies’ presence in the context of the Duke strategic plan (see http://stratplan.duke.edu/a_s_exec.html). The successful candidate will meet the standards in published scholarship, teaching excellence, and outstanding national and international stature appropriate for appointment to a distinguished chair. Duties include teaching a range of lower and upper division undergraduate courses and graduate courses, research, advising, curriculum development, program building and a commitment to public scholarship. Interest in program development and administration is particularly welcome.
Applications should include a cover letter indicating the candidate’s interest in the position, a curriculum vitae, and names of three references. The committee prefers that applications be delivered electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications submitted by mail should be directed to Chair of the Smart Professorship Search Committee, c/o Shawna Kaufman, Campus Box 90029, 102 Allen Building, Duke University, Durham, NC 27708.
