|Beschreibung||German Studies Position (Open Rank)
The German Studies Program (B.A. M.A. and PhD.) in the Department of Linguistics and Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages at Michigan State University (http://linglang.msu.edu) invites applications for an open rank, tenure‐system position, in German Literature and Culture. We seek an outstanding scholar and dynamic teacher who complements our existing strengths in the areas of German literary and cultural studies, applied linguistics, and digital humanities. The successful candidate will be appointed on an academic year basis and will contribute to a highly active research and pedagogical agenda at the intersection of literature and culture with other discourses, such as science and humanities (e.g., cognitive science, neurohumanities), film and media, language studies, gender studies, or critical theory.
MSU is an AAU/RO1/Land grant University with a strong focus on interdisciplinary research and on student success. The German program is committed to an integrated approach (language, literature and culture) and innovative professional development of our students in the curriculum and beyond. Beyond research in their respective fields, the successful candidate will be actively involved in program building in German with teaching expectations in graduate and undergraduate German literature and culture as well as in general education (Integrative Studies). The MSU German program, which was designated an AATG Center of Excellence in 2013, is a leading innovator in the integration of theoretical and practical perspectives on scholarship, pedagogy, and the profession. We are looking for colleagues who thrive within a context of collaborative research and student mentoring in research and engaged high impact pedagogies and will provide leadership for the continued success of German Studies at MSU.
The Department, a dynamic inclusive community, encourages intellectual and cultural diversity, prepares students for a range of careers that require global cultural knowledge, and is an integral part of the College of Arts & Letters and Michigan State University's international engagement.
The appointment will begin August 16, 2015. Review of applications will begin November 30, 2014 and continue until the position is filled. Applications must be submitted electronically to the Michigan State Human Resources web site (posting #0217): http://jobs.msu.edu/. Applicants should submit a cover letter, an overview of current research and plans for the future, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a curriculum vitae. References will be solicited from position finalists.
