Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor or a tenured Associate Professor faculty position in Islam and the Arts. The search is open to scholars focused on Islamic religious arts and performance; non-religious artistic and literary productions of the diverse cultures of Islamic societies; and scholar/artist practitioners. The applicant must have a conferred terminal degree in his/her field by September 1, 2018. The appointment can be in one of the following departments in the School of Humanities and Sciences: Art and Art History, Music, Theater and Performance Studies, or Comparative Literature.
The successful candidate will be based in a humanities department but is also expected to contribute to the Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies’ curricular and outreach efforts. Candidates should demonstrate interests that afford effective interactions with a broad range of colleagues and the ability to teach and mentor a diverse student body. Teaching responsibilities will be determined by the home department.
Applicants should provide a cover letter including a brief statement of research interests, a curriculum vitae including list of publications, and one recent writing sample or, in the case of an arts practitioner, a link to the applicant’s website. Assistant level and untenured applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference submitted to AcademicJobsOnline.org. Currently tenured applicants should submit the names of three references. For full consideration, materials should be received by October 2, 2017.
