Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature Opening

The Department of Comparative Literature at Brown University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in modern Arabic literature at the rank of assistant professor. The PhD must be completed by the time of employment, and native or near-native fluency in Arabic and English is required. The field of specialization within modern Arabic literature is open, though we especially encourage applications from candidates whose work is comparative, engaging with literary texts and traditions in addition to Arabic.

Demonstrating excellence in scholarship and teaching is essential, as is a commitment to fostering an academic community based on the principles of diversity and inclusion.
