Assistant Professorship in Northeast Asian Critical Humanities

The Department of Asian Studies at Cornell University welcomes applications for a Tenure-track Assistant Professorship in Northeast Asian Critical Humanities.  We seek teaching and research strengths in Japan and/or Korean studies, ideally including trans-national/inter-Asian empirical and theoretical interests. Applications are welcome from candidates working in modern, or across premodern and modern, contexts.  Candidates should be prepared to contribute to the undergraduate curriculum through courses in their fields of specialization as well as through survey and gateway courses. The successful candidate will enter a department that approaches Asian Humanities from diverse, but often complementary, disciplinary and theoretical arenas, including literature, film, media and visual culture, literary and intellectual history, religious studies, the investigation of imperial and colonial cultural forms and processes, translation studies, and study of modernities.  While the Department of Asian Studies constitutes the teaching and tenure home for this position, the successful candidate will also make contributions to one or more of Cornell University’s thematic and area studies programs.  Ph.D. in hand by July 1, 2018, and publishing record or strong potential for publishing is important.  Submit by November 1, 2017, a letter of application, curriculum vitae, reading sample, statement of teaching experience, and three letters of recommendation electronically at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9700.

The Department of Asian Studies and the College of Arts and Sciences at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who will create a climate that attracts students and faculty of all races, nationalities and genders. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply. Cornell University is a recognized EEO/AA employer and educator, valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
