The candidate is expected to have completed a PhD in Russian language and literature or cultural studies prior to or shortly after the date of hire. Fluency in Russian and English is a given, along with a dynamic teaching presence in language and non-language courses. A strong background in Central Asia or the Caucasus is highly desirable; twenty-first century is a plus.
The successful candidate will join a strongly interdisciplinary and collaborative Russian Studies program with colleagues in Literature, Anthropology, History, Geography, and Political Science. Teaching duties will involve five courses a year. These will typically include all levels of language, literature and/or culture, and at least one course within Colgate's Liberal Arts Core Curriculum.
Please submit a letter of application and C.V., along with any supporting materials, via www.academicjobsonline.org. Also arrange for the submission of three letters of recommendation, at least one of which should address language teaching. Review of applications will begin November 10, 2013.
