Director, Palestine Land Studies Center
The American University of Beirut (AUB) invites applications and nominations for the position of Director of the Palestinian Land Studies Center.
The Palestine Land Studies Center (PLSC) at the American University of Beirut was established as part of AUB’s ongoing commitment to the preservation, reclamation and dissemination of Palestinian history. The PLSC is the permanent home for the extensive archives of Dr. Salman Abu Sitta and the Palestine Land Society in London, and activates the archives though research and academic practice, making them available for public interaction from within AUB’s campus. AUB envisions the PLSC as a catalyst for interdisciplinary research and a global hub for grassroots investigation and dialogues around the question of land and population studies in Palestine.
Reporting to the Provost, the Director leads the Center and is responsible for developing its programs (research, education, outreach), internal and external partnerships, and public relations, driving its fundraising efforts and managing its operations. Holder of a PhD in a relevant field, the Director must have excellent research credentials and an interest in developing a research agenda that aligns with the mission of the PLSC. The director should have a strong track record in developing and leading innovative programs or institutes. She/he will hold a full-time professorial rank position in a relevant department/faculty at AUB and the opportunity to develop new courses related to the PLSC mission. The director is expected to contribute to AUB’s educational mission through teaching, offering advanced seminars, and graduate thesis supervision. She/he must be committed to expanding and encouraging the use of the Dr. Salman Abu Sitta archive, to forging working relations with AUB faculty members (many of whom have related interests), other AUB centers and institutes, and with organizations in the region and around the world. The Director will have outstanding leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills, as well as the ability to work effectively with people from a range of social, political, and cultural backgrounds.
