TitelAssociate or Full Professor position in German, Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of Waterloo, Canada
BeschreibungThe Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of Waterloo, Canada, invites applications for an Associate or Full Professor position in German with an initial 5-year, renewable designation of the Right Honourable John George Diefenbaker Memorial Chair in German Literary Studies.

The department is seeking an outstanding scholar, teacher, and communicator who will lead the discipline of German studies in new directions. This full-time appointment will be tenured; salary and rank (either Associate or Full Professor) will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. In addition to receiving tenure, the successful candidate will be named the Rt. Hon. John G. Diefenbaker Memorial Chair in German Literary Studies for an initial five-year period; the designation is renewable. Regular duties include research, teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, supervising graduate students, and active service. The chair holder’s disciplinary base will be German-language literature supplemented by interest and experience in one or more related fields. By means of groundbreaking research complemented by public intellectual activism and educational innovation, the chair holder will articulate a place for literary studies in today’s society and pioneer inventive ways of connecting and communicating with constituencies both in- and outside of academe. In these activities, the chair holder will be supported by the Waterloo Centre for German Studies, an endowed research institute at the University of Waterloo that operates a range of academic and cultural programming.

The University of Waterloo aspires to re-envision the university study of German for the 21st century. Applied linguistics, second language acquisition, literature, visual arts, and cultural studies form the core of the teaching and research activities of eight full-time faculty members in German Studies. German undergraduate and graduate programs have a decidedly intercultural focus; a thriving transatlantic Joint MA in Intercultural German Studies and a Dual PhD Programme (Cotutelle) are two recent innovations, and transcultural and translingual research and programming figure largely in the department’s future plans. Belonging to the Faculty of Arts (humanities, social sciences, creative arts, and digital humanities/media), Germanic and Slavic Studies supports the Faculty’s mission of innovation and advocates cooperation across the Faculty’s disciplines.

The anticipated start of the position is July 1, 2014 but the starting date is negotiable. Nominations and applications as well as inquiries about the position should be sent to the Department Chair. Applications, including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names of three referees should be sent in electronic format by 31 December, 2013 to:
