Yale University’s Program in Judaic Studies seeks to fill a tenured position in Hebrew language and literature. Primary departmental affiliation will be determined as is appropriate to the successful candidate’s field and methodology. While candidates are expected to have broad familiarity with the corpus of Hebrew literature as a whole across its history, preference will be given to candidates who work in modern Hebrew language and literature. Candidates should be thoroughly fluent in Hebrew language as well as whichever languages were in contact with Hebrew in a candidate’s area of specialization. They should be well-grounded in traditional and modern critical approaches to the study of literature, including the ability to situate Hebrew literature and its history within broader cultural and comparative contexts. Candidates should have an outstanding record of excellence in publication and teaching, the latter at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate will be expected to provide academic support to existing programs in the teaching of Hebrew language and literature, working closely with colleagues in the Program in Judaic Studies as well as in relevant departments and programs. Yale University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly encourages applications from women and underrepresented minority scholars.
