The Department of Asian Studies at Cornell University seeks to hire a candidate with a strong track record of research and teaching competence in the literature and culture of Korea, in any period. Preference will be given to candidates whose work engages with issues related to trans-regional interchanges, including those that predate or exceed contemporary national boundaries. Candidates who complement existing departmental strengths in religious studies, classical and contemporary literatures of Asia, and media studies/digital humanities are preferred.
The successful candidate will be expected to offer both undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in Korean humanities generally and in their specific area of expertise, as well as to read primary-language texts with graduate and advanced undergraduate students as needed. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field in the humanities in hand by July 1, 2020; a publishing record or strong potential for publishing is important.
To apply, submit electronically, by November 1, 2019, a letter of application, curriculum vitae, reading sample, statement of teaching experience, and three letters of recommendation, as well as a Statement of Contribution to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (http://facultydevelopment.cornell.edu/information-for-faculty-candidates/) at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/14481.
