|Job category||Faculty (open rank) / Tenure-track or similar|
|Organization's reference number||153162|
|Location||Salt Lake City, Utah, United States|
|Start date||July 1, 2024|
With the support of a generous grant from The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Program in Buddhist Studies, administered by the American Council of Learned Societies, the College of Humanities at the University of Utah seeks to hire a new tenure-line faculty member specializing in Buddhism. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor or (early) Associate Professor, with the position commencing July 1, 2024. The tenure home for The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Professor in Buddhist Studies will be determined based on the successful candidate’s disciplinary training and will be in one (or more) of the following departments in the College of Humanities: the Department of History, the Department of Philosophy, or the Department of World Languages & Cultures, which administers the Religious Studies major and minor. The typical teaching load for a tenure-line faculty member in the College of Humanities is two courses per semester (Fall and Spring). The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the curriculum of their home department by teaching courses that are focused on Buddhism as well as courses that are not confined solely to topics in Buddhist Studies.
The University of Utah attracts students and employees from across the US and the globe, and is committed to ensuring belonging for all and to fostering a diverse community and an inclusive campus climate. With its focus on the rich tapestry of human experience, the College of Humanities contributes to these aims through the research, teaching, and service of its faculty. Applicants are requested to provide a statement (2 pages maximum) discussing how they might play a role in these efforts and any relevant prior experience.
Salt Lake City, where the University is located, is a rapidly growing metropolis with a diverse population, including multiple lay Buddhist groups. In addition, the College of Humanities houses a federally funded Title VI National Resource Center for Asian and Pacific Studies, with affiliated faculty from across the University of Utah. The successful candidate may therefore expect a welcome reception for their work and will be joining a ready-made community of scholars with shared interests, supported by the institutional resources of an R-1 university that is the flagship of the Utah System of Higher Education.
