Two Assistant Professors of Jewish Studies
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New York, United States|
The Jewish Theological Seminary invites applications for two faculty appointments at the rank of assistant professor beginning July 1, 2014:
- One tenure-track position
- One three-year contractually limited (non-tenure-track) appointment with the possibility of renewal
While both appointments are open to candidates who hold an earned doctoral degree in any field of Jewish Studies, preference will be given to those with expertise in the areas of (1) Ancient Judaism; or (2) Jewish Thought with specialization in ethics; or (3) Social-scientific study of contemporary Jewish communities.
JTS welcomes applications from all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, disability, age, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other factors as prohibited by law.
The appointments carry with them all the normal benefits and responsibilities that pertain to full-time teaching faculty. In addition to maintaining an excellent standard of teaching and an active program of research and publication, faculty members are expected to participate in activities (both within and beyond JTS) that serve the JTS mission to “integrate rigorous academic scholarship and teaching with a commitment to strengthening Jewish tradition, Jewish lives, and Jewish communities.”
Applicants should submit electronically:
- A letter of application, including a statement of research interests and teaching competencies (syllabi attached if available)
- A current CV
- The names of three references along with their contact information
- A writing sample
Applicants who have submitted all materials by January 12, 2014 will be given full consideration.
Preliminary interviews may be conducted at the Annual Conference of the Association for Jewish Studies.
Applications and requests for additional information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
