The Pennsylvania State University Jewish Studies Program invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in Israel Studies and Jewish Studies. Research focus and teaching interests are open, but applicants should have expertise in Israel Studies, Israel-Diaspora relations, the Israel-Palestine conflict, and Middle East studies. The successful candidate will teach undergraduate courses at all levels in the history and cultures of Israel, in global Jewish communities, and (preferably) in American Jewish history, and they will also be able to teach broad survey courses in Jewish history and the foundation Jewish studies course. Applicants should be able to enhance the interdisciplinary strengths of the Jewish Studies Program, demonstrate an active research agenda, and contribute immediately to the undergraduate missions of the Jewish Studies Program and the College of the Liberal Arts; competitive candidates will have at least three years of undergraduate teaching experience. In addition, we expect the candidate to contribute to a developing Jewish Studies graduate program and an emerging Middle East Studies Program. The appointment will be held in the Jewish Studies Program, but we also welcome candidates who could be cross-appointed in a disciplinary field. The position will begin preferably in August 2020. Normal teaching load is 2-2. Ph.D. in a relevant field of study is required at the time of appointment.
