The Department of Jewish Thought at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York seeks to fill the position of Irving M. and Marilyn C. Shuman Visiting Assistant Professor for a two-year appointment beginning August 2019.

We invite applicants in the area and discipline of Jewish Thought broadly construed to include all aspects of Jewish tradition and its contributions to human civilization at one or more chronological periods and to extend beyond the traditional rubrics of philology and history. Area of expertise should complement existing strengths of the department. The position includes normal research and teaching duties of an assistant professor; it implies advancing an active research program, participating in the intellectual life of the department, teaching two courses each semester in the undergraduate curriculum of the department for majors and minors in Jewish Studies and for the UB general education curriculum. The Visiting Professor will also participate in department programing to build knowledge and awareness of Judaism tradition, culture and history for both Jewish and non-Jewish students and community members, and will work directly with Hillel and the Jewish Federation of Greater Buffalo to create connections that serve the community, the region, and the university.

We anticipate that a national tenure-track search will be undertaken within the next two years for an Assistant Professor in Jewish Thought.
UB is an AA/EOE and welcomes all to apply including veterans and individuals with disabilities
