Position in Buddhist Studies

Hebrew University, Jerusalem

Deadline: 6 April 2021


The Faculty of the Humanities at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem invites applications for the Khyentse Lectureship/Professorship in Buddhist Studies, a tenure-track position (open rank) in Buddhist Studies, with a preference for Tibetan Buddhism. The position is funded through the generous support of Khyentse Foundation, and is designed to be situated in the Department of Comparative Religion, with the possibility of a joint appointment with the Department of Asian Studies or other relevant departments, depending on the chosen candidate’s intellectual profile.

The position is open to all candidates who have attained a Ph.D. degree, and to advanced doctoral students who expect to be granted their Ph.D. no later than June 30, 2021.

Job requirements:

Responsibilities include the teaching of required and elective courses in the candidate’s field(s) of specialization (at the B.A. and M.A. degree levels). Successful candidates are expected to conduct independent and original research at the highest academic level, demonstrate academic leadership, compete for Israeli and international research grants, and should display an ability to work cooperatively with colleagues in the Faculty of Humanities and the university at large.

The Hebrew University’s primary language of instruction is Hebrew. However, the possibility of teaching courses in English will be available. Candidates whose Hebrew proficiency is such that they would not be comfortable teaching in Hebrew will be encouraged to sufficiently master the language during the initial years following their appointment.

Qualified candidates will be invited for a campus visit, which will include a job talk, an interview and meetings with department members. Given the current situation, campus visits are expected to take place on Zoom.
