Modern Hebrew Language Lecturer
The Department of Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for a lecturer position in modern Hebrew language beginning in the 2021-22 academic year. Responsibilities include teaching three quarters of first-year Hebrew annually; an introduction to Judaism; and four other courses on a variety of topics (such as Israeli literature in translation, Jewish literature of the Holocaust, religious groups on Israeli society, or Jewish poetry).
This lecturer position will complement a core faculty in the academic study of religion. The Department of Religious Studies offers a minor in Jewish Studies, which currently enables students to acquire a fundamental knowledge of biblical Hebrew, the Dead Sea scrolls, Jewish history and philosophy, Jewish mysticism, and rabbinic literature.
The department is especially interested in candidates who contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service. UCSB has recently been designated a Hispanic serving institution under the U.S. Department of Education’s guidelines (where total Hispanic enrollment constitutes a minimum of 25% of total enrollment).
