    Tenure-track Assistant Professor of Russian Literature and Culture and of Comparative Literature

    The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures and the Department of Comparative Literature at Harvard University seek to appoint a tenure-track assistant professor in Russian literature and culture with broad comparative interests. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2018. The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, typically two courses per semester, including required and elective courses in Russian and comparative literature, as well as freshman seminars. We are seeking an energetic colleague who will be committed to building our programs in literature and the humanities, one ready to share in advising students as well as participating fully in the intellectual life of the university.

    Candidates may specialize in any area of modern Russian literature and culture, including fiction, documentary prose, poetry, film, theory, the performing arts, and visual culture. Additional expertise in the literature, film, or visual arts of regions adjacent to Russia, particularly Southeastern Europe, the Caucasus, or Central Asia, is welcome but by no means required, as are broader interdisciplinary interests in fields such as folklore and mythology, art history, intellectual history, women’s and gender studies, environmental humanities, and digital humanities.

    Doctorate in Russian or Comparative Literature or related discipline required by the time the appointment begins. Native or near-native Russian and fluency in English are required. Demonstrated strong commitment to teaching and potential for innovative research are desired
