We are looking for applicants with Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, possessing native or near-native fluency in Russian and English. We are focusing on candidates with a specialization in Russian literature and culture of the late Soviet and post-Soviet periods (roughly from post-WW II to the present), coupled with competencies and research interests in areas of interdisciplinary focus within the UCLA Humanities Division's Department of European Languages and Transcultural Studies (ELTS), particularly film, media studies, digital, environmental and medical humanities. Dynamic teaching skills are essential; responsibilities include teaching graduate and undergraduate courses, dissertation supervision, independent study courses and sharing in departmental administration, including the oversight of the Department's various language programs (Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, BSC, Romanian and Hungarian).

We value candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.
