Job Description

The East Asian Languages and Cultures and Performing Arts Departments at Washington University in St. Louis seek to fill a postdoctoral appointment to begin in the fall semester of the 2022-23 academic year in the field of Sinophone performance cultures or popular cultures, including the Republic of China in Taiwan, People’s Republic of China, and the Chinese diaspora.

We are particularly interested in scholars who have training in drama, dance, or film. Candidates who can teach practice skills (e.g., sheng, dan, jing, and chou roles in Beijing opera, Tai Chi or other martial arts, etc.) are especially encouraged to apply. The responsibilities of this appointment include teaching a two-semester first-year seminar in our Ampersand program (which includes a trip to Taiwan), as well as a third course related to the candidate’s research. Fellows are expected to participate fully in the intellectual lives of the two departments as appropriate to their research interests.  They are also expected to conduct their own scholarly research with mentoring available from faculty in both departments.

Required Qualifications

Received doctorate degree after July 1, 2018 and before July 1, 2022.

Salary Range

Base pay is commensurate with experience.

Applicant Special Instructions

Applications must include a letter of interest describing the applicant’s scholarly qualifications and research goals for the postdoctoral period; a curriculum vitae; a published article or dissertation chapter; a documented record of teaching evaluations; and three (3) letters of recommendation.

The application and all materials must be submitted to Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/102515 .

Questions can be directed to Professor Lingchei Letty Chen, Chair, EALC-PAD Search Committee, llchen@wustl.edu .

Applications received by April 15, 2022 will be given priority consideration. The committee will review applications until the search is concluded.

Diversity and Inclusion are core values at Washington University, and the strong candidate will demonstrate the ability to create inclusive classrooms and environments in which a diverse array of students can learn and thrive.

Each year Washington University publishes a Safety and Security brochure that details what to do and whom to contact in an emergency. This report also publishes the federally required annual security and fire safety reports, containing campus crime and fire statistics as well as key university policies and procedures. You may access the Safety and Security brochure at https://police.wustl.edu/clery-reports-logs/.
