    The Department of English and Comparative Literature at UNC Chapel Hill invites applications for a Distinguished Professorship with a specialization in Asian American literature and related forms of cultural production. We seek a candidate in any area or subfield of Asian American literary studies with an outstanding record of research, teaching/mentoring, and institutional/professional service. Candidate’s research and experience should align with departmental priorities and values as described on our website at Administrative and leadership experience is desirable.

    The successful candidate must also demonstrate a commitment to engaging with and expanding the reach of the Asian American Center, an academic and community engagement center in the Office of the Provost, which was founded in 2020 and is the first center devoted to Asian American studies and communities in the Southeast ( ). The successful candidate will be expected to teach a 2/2 load and advise students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. The term of appointment is expected to begin July 2024.

    This is part of a cluster hire including assistant professorships in History and American Studies.
