Summary of Duties

The Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures is seeking to fill a tenure-track position in Migration and Diaspora Studies in East/Central European and Russian literatures and cultures. Viable candidates should have a background in the migration of persons and ideas across and outside of the region, as well as work in East European/Russian diaspora communities and their literatures/cultures, and in translation and interpreting of languages and literatures/cultures. We are particularly interested in candidates who explore the intersection of migration and narrative studies, migration and oral histories, interpretation as a skill, and languages in the professional spheres. This position is partially funded by Ohio State’s Discovery Themes, a significant faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas in which the university can build on its culture of academic collaboration to make a global impact.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate excellent language skills in Russian and an additional Slavic (Central European) language, or excellent language skills in any other two Slavic (Central or East European) languages, as well as experience teaching in a North American academic setting. Preferred qualifications include program experience, university teaching experience and experience mentoring members of underrepresented groups. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in hand by the time of appointment, which is anticipated to be August 16, 2018. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.
