Jobs: Adjunct Asst. Professorships, UCLA

Deadline: July 31, 2013

The UCLA Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures invites applications for two positions at the rank of Adjunct Assistant Professor, beginning in the Fall Quarter, 2013. The initial appointment is for two years, with the possibility of renewal, funds permitting. We are looking for applicants with Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, possessing fluency in Russian and English, who are prepared to conduct courses on Russian literature and culture to both undergraduate and graduate students. Both appointees would be expected to participate fully in the work of the department: research, teaching and administration. Preference for one of the two positions will be given to candidates with specialization in nineteenth-century Russian literature, and for the other, in the literature and culture of the Soviet and post-Soviet periods. One or both of the positions will be filled by a candidate with native or near-native Russian prepared to teach courses for advanced students of the language, including heritage speakers. We particularly welcome candidates with strong interdisciplinary interests in such areas as digital humanities, literature and ecology, translation studies, cinema, the visual arts and music. Dossier should include a cover letter describing research and teaching experience; curriculum vitae; and three letters of recommendation. Dossiers should be submitted by July 31, 2013. Send dossier to The Search Committee, Dept. of Slavic Languages and Literatures, University of California, Los Angeles, 361 Humanities Building, Box 957233, Los Angeles, CA 90095-7233. Electronic submissions may be sent to: Slavic@humnet.ucla.edu. UCLA is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
