https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/22616

Description:

The Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures (DSEELC) at The Ohio State University invites applications for a position at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor. We seek an innovative scholar and excellent teacher whose research program centers on Indigenous Siberian Studies. We invite scholars whose research interests explore questions about indigenous people’s knowledges and cultural practices as they intersect with one or more of the following: race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality, im/mobility, health, food, and environment, in imperial/post-imperial, communist/post-communist, or comparative contexts. While we will give preference to candidates with a research profile in Indigenous Siberian Studies, we will also consider applicants whose work examines this set of questions around the experiences of non-Slavic communities in other parts of the Russian Federation or who look at indigenous communities in a comparative perspective, as well as scholars who investigate “Siberia” as a constructed and contested colonial location. Ideally, candidates will demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; a record of community engagement is desirable. The candidate will be able to offer introductory courses in Ohio State’s newly re-designed General Education program, as well as upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in the department and will contribute to DSEELC’s strengths in cultural studies.
