The School of Religious Studies at McGill University, Montreal, Canada, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of South Asian Religions at the rank of Assistant Professor, but exceptionally qualified candidates may be considered at the Associate level.
We seek a dynamic colleague capable of expanding and enriching an already strong program in Asian Religions at McGill who is prepared to teach at undergraduate and graduate levels. This position calls for specialisation in the study of South Asian Religions alongside substantive engagement with the wider fields of Religious Studies and South Asian Studies, including relevant theoretical and methodological approaches.
Preference will be given to candidates who have an excellent overall research profile; research competence in at least two South Asian languages, ideally, one modern and one classical; and the ability to teach broad courses that cover South Asian religious traditions in interreligious and regional perspectives. The candidate will also be expected to contribute to graduate seminars in theory and method offered by the School of Religious Studies.
The appointment is available from 1 July 2017. The candidate is expected to have received the PhD prior to appointment. Applications should be received by 30 November 2016 to guarantee full consideration, but will be accepted until the position is filled.
