Situated at the nexus of the Grant Center for the American Jewish Experience and the Department of Jewish Studies, Tulane University seeks an Israeli Teaching Exchange Postdoctoral Fellow of Contemporary Israel whose scholarship lies at the intersection of politics, public policy, international relations, and/or other fields. The ideal candidate's research and teaching will bridge the American Jewish experience and Israel Studies.
This scholar will explore contemporary Israel from multiple angles, including its vital relationship with the United States and the world community. American Jewish politics and America's relationship with Israel are both calling out for deeper scholarly analysis. The two largest concentrations of Jews in the world are in the U.S. and Israel; both populations have commonalities, but also major differences. What do these differences mean for the Jewish world--politically, economically, and socially--both for these two communities separately and then in relation to one another?
The successful candidate will be housed in the Department of Jewish Studies and will also be affiliated with the Grant Center for the American Jewish Experience. The position is subject to annual renewal for a maximum of three years, contingent upon the interest and agreement of the Fellow and the University to continue the relationship.Qualifications:
The Fellow must have expertise in modern Israel as demonstrated by a dissertation or at least two peer reviewed publications about modern Israel, and by experience in university teaching about modern Israel. The Fellow must also have a PhD from an accredited university by the first day of the first term of their appointment.Application Instructions:
Must have a CV, names and contact information of three references, a teaching statement/teaching evaluations, teaching portfolio and a letter of application that includes how the candidate's work sits at the nexus of American Jewish Studies and Israel Studies, and how that work can inform both fields. Review of application begins on March 1 and will continue until the position is filled.Equal Employment Opportunity Statement:
