|Brandeis University announces an opening for the Karl, Harry, and Helen Stoll Family Chair in Israel Studies, to start in 2018. The successful candidate should have a strong record of publication in the history, politics, culture, or society of modern Israel. Broad familiarity with Middle East Studies and/or Judaic Studies is desirable; knowledge of modern Hebrew is required. The departmental home for the scholar appointed to this position will be determined by that scholar’s field, discipline and interests; a joint appointment will be considered. We seek a candidate with an accomplished record in research and graduate training and mentoring, and with a desire and ability to foster and develop Israel Studies at Brandeis, working with the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies. The position is expected to be at the rank of associate or full professor, but an exceptional advanced assistant professor may be considered.
Applications, which should be submitted through AcademicJobsOnline at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/8935, should include a curriculum vitae, list of courses taught, syllabi for courses in Israel Studies, list of languages used in research, three selected publications, teaching evaluations, and a list of three references. First consideration will be given to applications that arrive by April 15, 2017.
Brandeis recognizes that diversity in its student body, staff and faculty is important to its primary mission of providing a quality education. The search committee is therefore particularly interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching and/or service experiences, will increase Brandeis’ reputation for academic excellence and better prepare its students for a pluralistic society.
As an equal opportunity employer committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, Brandeis strongly encourages applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds with respect to race, ancestry, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, national origin, and disability.
