We are seeking to hire a three-year Lecturer in Buddhist Languages and Cultures responsible for delivering a portfolio of courses in Sanskrit and another classical language, as well as in an area of Buddhist culture such as literature, visual/material culture, history, or anthropology.

The Opportunity:

This post is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of Buddhist Studies at the University of Edinburgh, through teaching, research and leadership. In particular, the post, which is part-funded by the Khyentse Foundation, is to trial new ways of teaching classical Buddhist languages in a sustainable and inclusive manner. Subject to the successful demonstration of an economically viable and academically appropriate approach to Buddhist languages, there is a possibility that this position could be converted to an open-ended contract at the end of the three years. 

The post will sit within the School of Divinity (a department of Theology and Religious Studies), which is part of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. The post-holder will also be a member of the Edinburgh Buddhist Studies (EBS) steering committee, which draws together staff from five different Schools in the College.

We welcome applications for this post from all qualified candidates and particularly welcome applications from members of minority ethnic groups, who are currently under-represented in the School of Divinity.

The postholder will be expected to live within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh and to play a full part in fostering a sense of community within the School.

If you would like to discuss this post further, please contact the Head of School, Professor Helen Bond at Divinity@ed.ac.uk
