TWO NEW TENURED POSITIONS IN PREMODERN JAPAN STUDIES FIELDS (UP TO 1800) 

or JAPANESE LANGUAGE. Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan

 

Start date October 1, 2017, or as soon as possible thereafter, but no later than March 31, 2018

 

Description

The Faculty of Humanities and Graduate School of Humanities at Kyushu University announce two new tenured full-time positions in premodern Japan studies fields (up to 1800) or modern Japanese language, ideally to be made at the Professor or Associate Professor levels. We especially seek scholars in the fields of premodern Japanese religions, art history and visual cultures, history, archaeology, cultural studies, literature and/or modern language, and premodern Northeast Asian cultural exchange. We anticipate the two new hires will complement and balance current faculty specialties in Japanese art history (Cynthea J. Bogel), history (Ellen Van Goethem), and literature (Ashton Lazarus, from September, 2017) for a robust Japan studies department. 

 

The home department for the new positions is the International Master’s Program (IMAP) in Japanese Humanities and the newly established International Doctorate (IDOC) in Japanese Humanities. Teaching is in English, as are student MA theses and PhD dissertations. The successful candidates will typically teach small graduate seminars in their field(s) of specialization and advise graduate students. All faculty members of the IMAP and IDOC programs also teach undergraduate courses (usually one course per semester). They will also have opportunities to interact with students and faculty in their respective research areas within other departments in the Graduate School of Humanities. 

 

All faculty are expected to conduct and publish original research, participate in departmental and university committees and advisory bodies, and are encouraged to compete for university, national, and international research grants. There are many competitive funding opportunities at Kyushu University, including enhancements for research, travel to conferences, and major collaborative and research exchange projects.

 

The positions are open until filled. Consideration of applications will begin on May 15, 2017.
