Position Open: Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago

The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Chicago is seeking a tenure-track Assistant Professor with a multidisciplinary approach to Russian literary/cultural studies. The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to connect with faculty, staff, and students with diverse backgrounds and interests, to mentor undergraduate and graduate students, to excel in teaching, and to build on the program. The university will review applications from all humanistic and social science disciplines with particular interest in candidates who cover gaps in current research areas (such as pre-1840s or late and post-Soviet literature and culture) and can help the department develop new insights in critical areas of research and teaching (such as, but not limited to, environmental, LGBTQ, race, performance, or post-colonial studies).
