 Assistant Professor in Modern Japanese Literature and Culture

Location: Notre Dame, IN
Open Date: Jul 01, 2022
Deadline: Sep 15, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

Description:The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for the tenure-track position of assistant professor in modern (including contemporary) Japanese literature and culture, beginning August 2023.

Preference will be given to candidates who can offer courses on modern fiction, film, and popular culture. Responsibilities include teaching two undergraduate courses per semester, one of which may be a Japanese language class or language-based content class, depending on program needs. Active programmatic involvement and close collaboration with our faculty to advance the Japanese language and culture program is also expected.

As an international Catholic research university, the University of Notre Dame has made a significant commitment to furthering Asian Studies, as evidenced by the founding of the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies in 2011 and the opening of the Keough School of Global Affairs in 2014, both of which have driven increasing demand for Asia-related language and content courses.

Information about Notre Dame is available at https://www.nd.edu ; information about the Program of Japanese Language and Culture and the Department can be found at https://eastasian.nd.edu . Inquiries about the search may be directed to the chair of the search committee, Prof Michel Hockx (mhockx@nd.edu).
