The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Wellesley College announces a search for a tenure-track assistant professor in Japanese language and literature.

We seek a candidate who has proven teaching skills, substantial research promise, and a strong interest in designing undergraduate curricula for a thriving program that includes Japanese, Chinese and Korean languages and cultures.

Knowledge of another field of East Asian literature or an interdisciplinary field is desirable but not required. PhD preferred (ABD considered).
