Hellenic Studies at Simon Fraser University is seeking to hire an early career Assistant Professor in the History of Conflict and Population movements in 19th and 20th century Greece and the Balkans. Duties will include research and teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate level in the candidate’s field of expertise. Ability to teach outside the advertised disciplinary focus, notably in other specializations within the broader umbrella of Hellenic Studies (Byzantine, Ottoman, Balkan and Modern Greek history) will be positively assessed.
The successful candidate will coordinate with existing faculty to develop courses that effectively integrate their field of expertise into the curriculum and research profile of Hellenic Studies. Hellenic Studies is seeking to hire a candidate who will actively engage in and enrich the outreach activities of our program. The successful candidate will be invited to join the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies. The ability to read and conduct research in Modern Greek and at least one Balkan language is a requirement for the position.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and Permanent Residents of Canada will be given priority. Simon Fraser University, located in the Greater Vancouver area, is committed to an equity employment program that includes special measures to achieve diversity among its faculty and staff. We particularly encourage applications from qualified women, aboriginal Canadians, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minorities.
Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and research statement. They should also include in their application package a one-page statement of teaching philosophy.
