Harvard University - Department of Celtic Languages and Literatures

Location: Cambridge - United States
Salary: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent, Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 15th October 2021
Closes: 15th January 2022

The Department of Celtic Languages and Literatures, Harvard University, seeks to make a tenure-track,or possibly a tenured, appointment. Candidates must have excellent command of at least one Celtic language. We are open to applicants specializing in any period, and based in any discipline,with research and teaching interests in the cultures of the Celtic speaking lands.

The appointee will teach and advise undergraduate and postgraduate students and will be expected to develop innovative courses at both levels. The department provides postgraduate training leading to the PhD in Celtic Languages and Literatures and offers elective courses to undergraduates, some of whom complete a Secondary Field in Celtic. 

Harvard’s diverse undergraduates are increasingly interested in courses that reach across cultural, linguistic and chronological boundaries to address large questions. The successful candidate will be asked to design undergraduate courses that address this interest. Applicants should familiarize themselves with the offerings of Harvard’s Degree Program in Folklore and Mythology; Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, and Rights; General Education Program; and Freshman Seminar Program, and should expect to collaborate with one or more of these programs in building the increasingly multidisciplinary curriculum of Harvard College. 

Promise of excellence in both teaching and research is essential, as well as a doctorate conferred by the time the appointment begins. The appointee will also undertake administrative responsibilities, commensurate with rank, in the Celtic Department and will be expected to participate in the interdepartmental and interdisciplinary intellectual life of the Division of Arts and Humanities and the wider scholarly community at Harvard and beyond.

Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Applicants should submit the following materials online through the ARieS portal (please click 'Apply' to apply):  letter of application; curriculum vitae; research interests and  plans; teaching experience and philosophy; as well as a statement describing efforts to encourage diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past, current, and anticipated future contributions in these areas. Tenure-track applicants only are required to provide names and contact information for 3 referees. Letters of recommendation are not required at the time of application.
