Wellesley College, Religion
Sophia Moses Robison Professor of Jewish Studies
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Massachusetts, United States|
|Position:||Tenure Track Faculty|
Wellesley College is seeking to hire the next Sophia Moses Robison Professor of Jewish Studies, to teach in, and to lead, its now 30-year-old program in that field. Candidates may come from any sub-field within Jewish Studies. The Robison Professorship is a tenured position; candidates should be tenured in their current institution or at the point of being reviewed for tenure. We are especially interested in candidates with a wide range of scholarly and pedagogic interests, an eagerness and ability to work in collaboration with other disciplines, and a thoughtful vision of what a Jewish Studies program should strive to be. The search will begin in 2018 for a tenured appointment to begin on or after July 1, 2020. The preferred candidate will have an opportunity for a one- or two-semester visiting appointment (terms negotiable) in 2019-2020. The position will remain open until filled, but we hope to begin interviews at the Association for Jewish Studies annual meeting in Boston (Dec 16-18, 2018). Wellesley College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we are committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and the curriculum. Candidates who believe they can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply.
Applications should be submitted online through the College’s career application website (http://career.wellesley.edu/postings/594) and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a short description of research plans, a statement of teaching interests and experience, and three letters of reference.
