The Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies (DSES) in collaboration with the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for the position of tenured associate or full professor. The anticipated start date is fall semester 2021, and the position is contingent upon budget availability. We seek applications from scholars whose research focuses on the Poland or the non-Russian peoples and cultures of the former Soviet republics, though transnational research might also include Russians. Our preference is for a research specialization in Cultural (including literary) Studies or History, though interdisciplinary work that crosses into these fields will be considered. All candidates must have an outstanding and active research and publication record consistent with achievement at the intended rank at a leading research university. Teaching duties will include a two course per semester load. The selected candidate will be expected to exhibit an interest in and commitment to departmental and center administration and service and be qualified to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as direct independent research. Candidates who are currently or will potentially make outstanding contributions to diversity in their scholarly fields and/or institutions of higher education, or have experience mentoring a diverse student body, are especially encouraged to apply.
Salary is based upon qualifications and experience.
Ph.D. in a relevant field and teaching experience is required.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, three letters of reference, a scholarly writing sample of no more than 30 pages, and a one to two-page statement that addresses your experience with or commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through scholarship, pedagogy, mentoring, and service and engagement.
