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.

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.
