Tenure-track assistant professorship in the field of Classical Arabic Islamic Thought

The Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in the field of Classical Arabic Islamic Thought, starting in August 2020. We are considering a broad range of humanistic disciplines, including intellectual and cultural history, adab, language and rhetoric, religious studies, philosophy, etc. 

Applicants should have a completed Ph.D. with a clearly demonstrated specialty in the Classical Arabic Islamic Humanities.

The successful candidate will be expected to advise Arabic majors, supervise doctoral research in relevant fields, pursue an active research agenda, and play a leading role in consolidating and expanding our Arabic and Islamic Studies humanities curriculum.
