Pennsylvania State University, Jewish Studies Program
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Holocaust Studies and Modern Jewish History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Pennsylvania, United States|
The Pennsylvania State University Jewish Studies Program announces a search for a Postdoctoral Fellow/Lecturer in Holocaust Studies and Modern Jewish History for the 2016-2017 academic year, with an option for renewal. Duties will include teaching two courses each semester, for a total of four courses over the academic year: likely two sections of our foundation Holocaust History class and two sections of our required-for-the-major-and-minor introduction to Jewish Civilization and Identity course (though circumstances might dictate slight revisions to this plan). The successful applicant will be expected to be in residence in the State College area during the academic year. Competitive salary and benefits; in addition, the Program’s accomplished faculty will provide mentoring to the successful applicant to get the first book project moving out the door toward publication. We’d prefer Ph.D. in hand by the start of the 2016-2017 academic year, but we’re happy to consider accomplished and qualified ABD applicants (however, accordingly, a successful pre-doctoral applicant will hold the title simply of “Lecturer”). Please upload a letter of application, CV, and dissertation or book abstract at https://psu.jobs/job/60223. In addition, please arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to Sandra Moyer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to contact Program Director Ben Schreier (email@example.com) with any questions. Information about the Penn State Jewish Studies Program can be found at http://jewishstudies.la.psu.edu. Review of applications will begin on 30 November 2015 and continue until the position is filled. We hope to conduct interviews with the finalists at the AJS conference in Boston in mid-December.
