The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Wellesley College announces a search for a tenure-track assistant professor position in premodern Chinese language and literature. Research field is open but excludes candidates in modern and contemporary literature and film. Desirable sub-fields include but are not limited to classical poetry of Tang and Song, classical theater, classical fiction, and vernacular fiction of Ming and Qing. History of the book and gender are other welcome areas of research specialization. The successful candidate is expected to cover a course in language, as well as courses on premodern Chinese literature and culture. In addition, they should be able to teach an introductory course that covers China, Japan, and Korea. Candidates who can cross-list courses in Women and Gender Studies, Comparative Literary Studies, Theatre Studies, or another humanities department will receive priority. We seek candidates with proven teaching skills, substantial research promise, and a strong interest in designing undergraduate courses for a thriving program that includes Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages and cultures. The teaching load is four courses per year. PhD preferred (ABD considered).

Wellesley is known for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, its gifted faculty, and the uniqueness of its campus culture. But most of all, Wellesley is known for the thousands of accomplished, thoughtful women it has sent out into the world for over 100 years women who are committed to making a difference. Every year, some 2,400 of the world's top undergraduate women are challenged to exceed their own highest personal and intellectual expectations. The mastery Wellesley graduates demonstrate across the professional and vocational spectrum, and the influence they wield, whether in their own communities or on the world stage is testament to a singularly empowering undergraduate experience. Wellesley's lively academic community places a high value on rigorous, probing inquiry, and creative, cross-discipline thinking. Its collaborative approach to scholarship encourages students to question, debate, and refine their points of view, not only with each other, but with our world-class faculty, often by working directly with them on groundbreaking projects. A Wellesley education fosters the highest standard of readiness for the real world in its graduates, in terms... of ability to think, act, and contribute meaningfully and effectively in their chosen areas of interest.
