The Department of East Asian Studies at Bucknell University invites applications for an open-rank, tenure-track faculty position to begin August 2015. We seek a teacher-scholar in the humanities (with the exception of history and religion) able to teach Chinese language at all levels in addition to courses in his/her area of specialization (applicants with expertise in art history, linguistics, theatre, and/or visual culture are particularly encouraged to apply), and who is committed to integrating diversity issues into the curriculum. Candidates who will have a Ph.D. at the time employment begins, or who are ABD, will be considered. Teaching responsibilities include five courses over the academic year, of which four courses are expected to be Chinese language and one will be in the candidate's area of specialization focusing on China, taught in English.
