Tenure Track Position in Islamic Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill for Fall 2010

The Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Kenan Rifai Fellow in Islamic Studies, starting July 1, 2010.

Preference will be given to candidates who already have a PhD in hand. Area of specialization is open, and could include (but not be limited to) the study of the Qur'an, Islamic law, Islam in America, gender debates in Islam, and other topics. Research interests should include the study of Islamic spirituality and/or Sufism. We seek to complement existing regional strengths in South Asia and Iran.

Candidates should have knowledge of the relevant language(s) and demonstrate strong research potential. Teaching duties will include introductory and upper-level undergraduate courses on Islamic studies as well as graduate-level seminars. The successful candidate will also be expected to work with doctoral students, and to collaborate with faculty in the Department of Religion at nearby Duke University. Both teaching and research need to be connected to the problems and issues of religious studies broadly conceived and to the graduate concentration in Islamic studies.

*Review of applications will begin April 15, 2010.* Submit an online application including the following materials: a letter of application, a cv, and a writing sample. Submit these materials online at . In addition, arrange to have four original, signed letters of recommendation sent by mail to: Chair of Islamic Studies Search Committee, Department of Religious Studies, CB #3225, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, 27599-3225 ( >).
