Israel Studies Faculty Search, Open Rank

Northwestern University, Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies

The Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies at Northwestern University invites applications for a faculty position in the field of Israel Studies, to begin September 1, 2020. The appointment will be at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor or tenured associate or full professor in accordance with the candidate’s qualifications.

The search committee will consider applicants whose work focuses on modern Israel (including late Ottoman or mandatory Palestine) from disciplines across the humanities and social sciences, including but not limited to History, Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science, Art History, Communication Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, and Religious Studies. Final departmental affiliations will depend upon the expertise and qualifications of the candidate.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or its equivalent in their field by the time of appointment, and will be expected to teach a varied range of undergraduate and graduate courses. Northwestern's base teaching load is four courses spread between three academic quarters.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and article or chapter length writing sample at https://www.jewish-studies.northwestern.edu/people/faculty-search/.  Applicants at the level of assistant professor must also provide contact information for three academic references, who will be prompted to submit letters of recommendation once the application is submitted; applicants at the rank of associate or full professor may be asked to provide letters of recommendation at a later stage of the selection process.

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2019. Questions about the position may be directed to David Shyovitz, Director of the Crown Family Center, at davidshy@northwestern.edu; logistical questions about the application process should be directed to Nancy Gelman, Center Administrator, at jewish-studies@northwestern.edu.
