POSITION DESCRIPTION AND DUTIES
The Ph.D. Program in English at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York invites applications for a tenured Associate or Full Professor of Asian American Literature. We seek a nationally recognized scholar working on aspects of the long history of cultural contact and migration between Asia and the Americas, with an emphasis on Asian American literature. We are particularly interested in scholars who approach issues of diaspora and globalization from an interdisciplinary perspective, through historically grounded research in literary studies, cultural studies, media studies, critical race studies, and/or comparative ethnic studies.
The Graduate Center, which is the Ph.D.-granting institution of CUNY, is devoted to advancing original research and training graduate students in over 30 fields in the humanities, social sciences and sciences. This position is part of a Graduate Center-wide initiative to hire new faculty interested in the interdisciplinary study of immigration and globalization. We expect that during the next three years this initiative will result in the hiring of six scholars (in both the humanities and social sciences) doing groundbreaking work related to the interdisciplinary study of social change in an era of globalization.
Ph.D. and extensive previous experience in a faculty position are required. Demonstrated excellence in teaching and research, and dedicated professional service, provide the main hiring criteria. A particularly strong candidate may be nominated as a Distinguished Professor.
Please send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information for at least three professional references to
