The University of Chicago seeks scholars in Modern Jewish Culture and History, with an emphasis on 19th/20th-Century Europe, for an appointment date of July 1, 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. We welcome applications at the assistant professor, associate professor, and full professor rank. This is an inter-divisional search and candidates may come from any relevant discipline. Preference will be given to applicants who have knowledge of Hebrew, Yiddish, or Ladino. Successful candidates will be placed in the appropriate department in the Division of the Social Sciences, the Division of Humanities, or the Divinity School, where they will contribute to both the undergraduate and graduate programs, including regularly offering an undergraduate course on the history of the Shoah. It is expected that they will participate actively in the Greenberg Center for Jewish Studies.
Candidates must hold the Ph.D. by the time of appointment.
