ISRAEL STUDIES FACULTY SEARCH
The Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies at Northwestern University invites applications for a faculty position in the field of Israel Studies, to begin September 1, 2020. The appointment will be at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor or tenured associate or full professor in accordance with the candidate’s qualifications.
The search committee will consider applicants whose work focuses on modern Israel (including late Ottoman or mandatory Palestine) from disciplines across the humanities and social sciences, including but not limited to History, Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science, Art History, Communication Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, and Religious Studies. Final departmental affiliations will depend upon the expertise and qualifications of the candidate.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or its equivalent in their field by the time of appointment, and will be expected to teach a varied range of undergraduate and graduate courses. Northwestern's base teaching load is four courses spread between three academic quarters.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and article or chapter length writing sample via the link below. Applicants at the rank of assistant professor must also provide contact information for three academic references, who will be contacted to submit letters of reference once the application is submitted; applicants at the rank of associate or full professor may be asked to provide letters of recommendation at a later stage of the selection process. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2019.
Questions about the position may be directed to David Shyovitz, Director of the Crown Family Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org; logistical questions about the application process should be directed to Nancy Gelman, Center Administrator, at email@example.com.

Please read ALL instructions and make preparations before proceeding to the application page:
Applicants will only be accepted via online submission (see links below)
- Please make sure all documents are prepared in advance, because partial applications will not be accepted and cannot be saved. Also, please be sure all information is entered completely and accurately (especially names and email addresses), as there will be no opportunity for online revision after your application has been accepted.
- All uploaded files should be in Adobe PDF format. Files in another electronic format (e.g., MS Word) should be "saved as" or "printed to" PDF format before uploading. If you only have a paper version of a particular document, you may scan it and save it as a PDF. However, the first method is preferred, because it retains text recognition capabilities.
- For applicants at the rank of Assistant Professor: Three names and email addresses for external referees are required. Shortly after you submit your complete online application, your references will automatically be emailed instructions for uploading a letter of recommendation. NOTE: If you are using a professional placement or dossier service (e.g., interfolio) to submit any or all recommendations, please use the service's address instead of your referee's address in the appropriate space. Once again, please be sure all addresses are entered correctly with no spelling errors; otherwise your referee or dossier service will not receive the instructions.
All required fields in the application form are marked with an asterisk and must be filled before clicking the "Submit" button.
