      Position Announcement: Professor of Near Eastern Languages and
      Cultures (Aramaic, Syriac, Arabic)

      The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, New York
      University, seeks to make an appointment (tenured or
      tenure-track, rank open) of a wide-ranging scholar in the
      languages, literatures, and cultures of the Near East in the
      Roman, Late Antique, and early Islamic periods. The principal
      areas of interest should be in the Semitic languages (Aramaic,
      Syriac, and Arabic, in particular) rather than in Greek, but
      specialization is less important than broad interests and
      connections with neighboring regions and cultures. We seek
      individuals of scholarly distinction whose work will benefit
      from freedom from departmental structures and who will be
      stimulated by working closely with colleagues in other
      disciplines, approaches, periods, or geographical areas and
      who are committed to helping develop the intellectual life of
      such a community. Applicants with a history of
      interdisciplinary exchange are particularly welcome. The
      Institute’s graduate program emphasizes individual supervision
      and research seminars. The faculty is involved in choosing a
      group of visiting researchers each year.
      Applications (letter, curriculum vitae, and list of referees)
      should be made through the NYU online system at
      www.nyuopsearch.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=50564. Review
      of candidates will begin on November 1, 2010. For questions,
      please email Ms. Kathryn Lawson at kathryn.lawson@.... New
      York University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
      employer.
