Assistant Professor of Korean Humanities

The Department of Classical, Middle Eastern and Asian Languages and Cultures at Queens College, City University of New York (CUNY) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Korean humanities, to begin in the fall semester of 2019. The fields of expertise for this position are open and include (but not limited to) history, art, religion, film, and/or cultural studies.

Our department offers a wide variety of courses.

By supporting linguistic and cultural knowledge and proficiency, we provide the foundation for a liberal arts education. We encourage students who have a background in the languages we teach to enhance their proficiency by taking advanced courses. Sequences of our courses may fulfill requirements for majors, minors, and interdisciplinary concentrations.
A flagship college of the CUNY system, Queens College is an urban school that offers a rigorous education in the liberal arts and sciences to a large and diverse student body. Our liberal arts, sciences, and pre-professional programs earn us high rankings in prestigious college guides.
