Position Title Tenure-track or Tenured Professor in Ukrainian Literature and Culture

School Faculty of Arts and Sciences Department/Area Slavic Languages and Literatures Position Description

The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures plans to appoint a tenure- track or tenured professor in Ukrainian literature and culture. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2022. The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, typically two courses per semester (including freshman seminars, survey courses, and advanced seminars). We are seeking an energetic colleague committed to building our program in Ukrainian studies, introducing undergraduates to the study of this part of the world, advising advanced work with graduate students, and connecting Ukrainian studies to other disciplines and regions in creative ways. We expect the candidate to share in the Department's administrative and advising duties as well as participating broadly in the academic culture of the university. Demonstrated strong commitment to teaching and innovative scholarship is imperative.

The ideal candidate will be able to present Ukraine's complex, multiethnic culture and history to both undergraduates and graduate students. Candidates may specialize in any area of Ukrainian literature and culture. Additional expertise in the study of the region, for example, Russian studies or Jewish studies, is highly valued, as is knowledge of another Slavic language and literature. We also welcome broader interdisciplinary interests in fields such as race and ethnicity, migration and transnational studies, religion, or gender and sexuality studies.
