Tenure-Track Position in English Literature
The Department of English at the University of Haifa, Israel, invites applications for an open-rank, tenure-track position to begin either March or October 2020, depending on candidate availability. We welcome applications from candidates specializing in one or more of these fields: American Literature before 1900, Gender and Sexuality, Children’s Literature, Print Culture, Visual Cultures, Environmental Studies, and Digital Humanities. Priority will also be given to applicants eligible for the Alon and Maof Fellowships, which are awarded by the Israeli Council for Higher Education to outstanding tenure-track faculty eligible for or holding Israeli citizenship.
The English Department and the University of Haifa boast a roster of internationally renowned researchers, and the most ethnically diverse student body of any university in Israel, providing opportunities for academics at all stages of their careers to participate in its dynamic scholarly and pedagogical life. The successful candidate will be expected to teach four courses per year. The language of instruction in the department is English, but a working or rudimentary knowledge of Hebrew is beneficial.
Candidates holding a PhD with relevant teaching experience and a strong publication record should submit a cover letter, a CV (including the names of three referees) and a statement of research interests via Interfolio https://apply.interfolio.com/65989. (Opening an Interfolio account is free and allows you to submit your materials and reference letters, as well as to follow the status of your application.) Further queries about the post and the fellowships may be addressed to Dr. Ayelet Ben-Yishai (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2019. Interviews will take place in November/December 2019.
