Instructor, Sanskrit and Buddhist Studies
|Location:||California, United States|
Mangalam Research Center for Buddhist Languages, in Berkeley, California, invites applications for a position as Instructor in Buddhist Languages and Buddhist Studies in the newly established Postbaccalaureate Program in Buddhist Languages and Translation Studies. This program is the first of its kind. It is intended for students who lack the background to go directly from undergraduate studies into a graduate program and emphasizes the acquisition of language skills. Jann Ronis, currently a lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley, will serve as Coordinator for the Program.
The program will start with language intensives in Sanskrit and Tibetan in the summer of 2016, followed by a nine-month program that runs from September through June. The position of instructor involves teaching the intensive Sanskrit program during the academic year, as well as the two-semester program in Buddhist Studies. Part of the teaching load will be carried by visiting scholars, who will offer short-term intensive workshops or lecture programs. Details of the program are available on the MRC website.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Buddhist Studies, South Asian Studies, or a related field, as well as relevant teaching experience. This is a part-time position; however, qualified applicants can combine teaching responsibilities with research in one of MRC’s projects to create a full-time position.
The position is for one year, with the potential for it to be renewed for a one to three year period. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
