Recruitment Period

The UCLA Department of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Languages and Cultures invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor (tenure-track) or Associate Professor (with tenure) of Russian literature, beginning July 1, 2015. We are looking for applicants with Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, possessing native or near-native fluency in Russian and English. The area of specialization is open, but a strong research profile in Russian literature of the Realist period (1840s-1890s) would be particularly welcome, coupled with interdisciplinary interests in such areas as East European and Eurasian cultures, cinema, the visual arts, music, digital humanities and translation studies. Dynamic teaching skills are essential; instructional responsibilities include both graduate and undergraduate courses, as well as dissertation supervision. Dossiers should include a cover letter describing research and teaching experience, a curriculum vitae and three letters of recommendation; these should be submitted electronically via UCLA’s Academic Recruit site: http://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/jpf00580 (a "Statement of Research" and "Statement of Teaching" maybe submitted separately or incorporated into cover letter). Preliminary interviews will be conducted at the AATSEEL Convention in Vancouver, British Columbia in early January, 2015. Applicants wishing to be considered for interviews at the convention should submit their dossiers no later than November 20 and instruct recommenders to do so as well. The closing date for all applications is December 31, 2014. Address all inquiries about the application process to Jasmine Lin at slavic@humnet.ucla.edu.
