A. Charles Muller's picture

The Department of Asian Languages & Cultures (http://www.alc.ucla.edu/) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), invites applications for a position in Southeast Asian studies, at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor. This position will begin on July 1, 2019.

The position is open as to discipline and country specialty, though preference is for applicants in fields relating to the study of religion, culture, and literature, all broadly defined. Applicants whose research involves innovative and interdisciplinary humanistic approaches to interregional connections, routes of migration, diasporas, minoritized populations, race, gender, sexuality, or new technologies are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to those candidates whose training and teaching interests allow them to work comparatively across at least portions of the wider Southeast Asia region.

The successful candidate will be expected to sustain an active research and publication schedule, teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, provide service to the department and campus, and demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity-related teaching, research, and/or service. We welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. Women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
