Organisation's Logo
Duke Kunshan University

Duke Kunshan University (DKU) invites applications for faculty positions in the Arts and Humanities and related areas: History, Literature, Media and Arts, Philosophy, Religious Studies, and Computer Science and Design. These positions are open with regard to rank including tenured, tenure track, and non-tenured. We are especially interested in considering advanced assistant professors to full professors.

These positions are open with regard to sub-field. Besides our general interest in each area, in some areas we are especially interested in:
• History: pre-Modern China; comparative, American, and European history;
• Literature: comparative, Asian, and American literature;
• Media and Arts: the scholarly study of art, art history, and visual studies, the creative practice of film, photography, multimedia, and digital arts, and the study of mass, new, and comparative media;
• Philosophy: philosophy of mind, logic, the history of philosophy, ethics and applied philosophy, and philosophy of science;
• Religious Studies: comparative religious studies, individual religious traditions, environmental thought, and leadership practice.

DKU will launch an innovative, integrated and interdisciplinary liberal arts and sciences undergraduate program leading to both Duke and DKU degrees. Students interested in arts and humanities will be immersed in integrated core courses including the arts of interpretation in written texts, images and sounds, as well as a common set of university-wide courses on China, global challenges, and ethics. Areas of study in the arts and humanities include, but are not limited to, Global Cultural Studies, Media and Arts, China and US Studies, and Ethics and Leadership. Faculty will have the unique opportunity to pioneer, lead and implement an interdisciplinary and integrated arts and humanities curriculum and to conduct research in the related fields. These positions may start as early as Fall 2018 or begin a year later.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in an appropriate field. Successful candidates should show a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching in a liberal arts curriculum. Research and scholarship are also highly valued. Applicants should provide a curriculum vitae, a research statement and a teaching statement, as well as names and contact information for three references. All materials should be submitted through Academic Jobs Online: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10177. The search committee also invites and encourages letters of nomination for potential candidates. Nominations and questions about the positions may be sent to arts-humanities-search@dukekunshan.edu.cn using “Arts and Humanities Search” as the subject line. Priority will be given to applications received by December 1, 2017; we will accept applications until the positions are filled.
