Description

The Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies (DSES) at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a position beginning fall of academic year 2023-24 at the rank of assistant professor. The position is open regarding disciplinary and thematic emphasis, but preference will be given to scholars specializing in studies of the former Russian and Soviet empires and their borderlands (including Chinese borderlands), and, especially, Ukrainian Studies, or Central Asian Studies. We also seek candidates working in transdisciplinary areas including indigeneity, racialization, and racism(s); critical and literary theory; or policy and security studies, and we encourage scholars who are interested in working with students in our new Global Disinformation Lab (GDIL). The successful candidate will teach two courses each long semester (a 2/2 teaching load), maintain an active publication record, exhibit a strong commitment to service, mentor students, including those in our dual degree (M.A.) programs, and work with growing faculty and affiliates of the UT Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (UT CREEES) in a leading, diverse public R1 environment.

Qualifications

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in a relevant field for appointment as Assistant Professor or expect to obtain it within a year of joining the faculty as Instructor. Teaching experience is required. We are interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research and service.

Application Instructions

Applicants must upload 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 reflecting upon their previous, current and/or potential future contributions to diversity, equity and inclusion through their research, teaching, and/or service.

Deadline for applications is October 31, 2022. Finalists will be interviewed via zoom in November 2022.

Applications should be submitted via Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/112813). Direct any inquiries to the chair of the search committee, Professor Steven Seegel, steven.seegel@austin.utexas.edu.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Position funding is subject to budget availability.
