The Pennsylvania State University Jewish Studies Program announces a search for an Assistant Teaching Professor/Lecturer in Modern Jewish Studies and Holocaust for the 2018-2019 academic year, with an option for renewal. The area of research specialization is open, but the successful applicant will be expected to contribute to our curriculum in Holocaust Studies. Duties will include teaching two to three courses each semester, for a total of five courses over the academic year, likely including two sections of our foundation Holocaust History class.  

The successful applicant will be expected to be in residence in the State College area during the academic year. Competitive salary and benefits. The Program’s accomplished faculty will provide mentoring to the successful applicant to get the first book project moving toward publication. Ph.D. in hand by the start of the 2018-2019 academic year is preferred, but accomplished and qualified ABD applicants will be considered (a successful pre-doctoral applicant will hold the title of “Lecturer”).  

Please upload a letter of application, CV, and dissertation or book abstract at https://psu.jobs/job/74936  In addition, please arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to Lynn Hepfer at lrd131@psu.edu. Feel free to contact Program Director Daniel Falk (dkf16@psu.edu) with any questions. Information about the Penn State Jewish Studies Program can be found at http://jewishstudies.la.psu.edu.
