Position opening: Tenure-Track Professor of Persian Literature and Cultures, Harvard University
The Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations seeks to appoint a tenure-track professor in Persian literature and cultures. While the specific area of specialization is open, the candidate must have a thorough knowledge of classical Persian literature from the eleventh century to the seventeenth century. In addition, the candidate should show some familiarity with the broader historical and cultural contexts within which classical Persian literature developed, both within and beyond Iran. The candidate will be expected to engage in teaching topics related to Persian literary cultures to a broad range of students, including undergraduates. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2023. The appointee will teach and advise both undergraduate and graduate level students. Applications from historically excluded and marginalized groups are strongly encouraged.
Applications must be submitted by no later than January 6, 2023.
