The Department of English at the University of Haifa, Israel, invites applications for an open-rank, tenure-track position, tenable from Autumn 2019, pending budgetary approval. Candidates specializing in Medieval or Early Modern Literature, or American Literature before 1900 are particularly encouraged to apply but other areas of expertise will also be considered. Priority will also be given to outstanding candidates for the Alon and Maof Fellowships for tenure-track faculty, which are awarded by the Israeli Council for Higher Education to citizens of Israel.
The English Department and the University of Haifa boasts a roster of internationally-renowned researchers, and the most ethnically diverse student body of any in Israel, providing opportunities for academics at all stages of their careers to participate in its dynamic scholarly and pedagogical life.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach four courses per year. The language of instruction in the department is English, but a working or rudimentary knowledge of Hebrew is beneficial.
Candidates holding a PhD with relevant teaching experience and a strong publication record should submit a cover letter, a CV (including the names of three referees) and a statement of research interests via Interfolio https://apply.interfolio.com/50740. (Opening an Interfolio account is free and allows you to submit your materials and reference letters, as well as to follow the status of your application.)
Further queries about the post and the fellowships may be addressed to Dr. Ayelet Ben-Yishai ([email protected]).
Review of applications will begin on August 1st. Interviews will take place in September/ October.
