The Department of Jewish, Islamic, and Middle Eastern Studies (JIMES) is actively seeking new members for its teaching faculty in order to advance its goal of providing a dynamic and multi-disciplinary educational experience. Our current open positions are listed below with descriptions of the expectations and duties of that role.


We are seeking an outstanding scholar at the assistant professor level whose research focuses on Race and Ethnicity in the Middle East. The position has been created to broaden both the University’s approach to race and ethnicity, and the department’s scope. We are seeking an excellent scholar who engages race, structural racism, and racial disparities and inequities. The successful candidate will complement the interdisciplinary nature of the department with strong disciplinary (or multi-disciplinary) training, native or near-native fluency in at least one language of the Middle East, passion for teaching, and a commitment to forging alliances within the department, university, and the larger community. Contact Julia Clay at with any questions or visit the Provost’s website for more information on the initiative and a link to apply.
