Macalester College (MN) - TT Asst. Professor - Russian StudiesEdit

The Department of Russian Studies at Macalester College announces an opening for a tenure-track position in Russian Studies, to begin in Fall 2018, at the rank of Assistant Professor (in an exceptional case, a more advanced appointment may be considered). Applicants should have a PhD at the time of appointment in the field of Russian history, culture, or related subjects and possess native or near-native proficiency in Russian and English. The successful candidate, whose tenure home would be in Russian Studies, would teach Russian language as well as courses that would cover Russia and the neighboring region historically. Scholarly promise, college teaching experience, an interdisciplinary approach to the teaching of Russian Studies, strong interest in teaching language, and knowledge of current pedagogical methodologies are highly desirable.

The position entails teaching five courses per year, including two Russian language courses per year and three others, at least two of which can be cross-listed with the History department. We are looking for dynamic, broadly trained, theoretically informed scholar-teachers with training in historical inquiry, who are committed to the study of Russian history and culture as an integral part of the undergraduate liberal arts curriculum. The successful candidate will join Macalester’s Russian Studies faculty in active program building.

Submit electronic copies of a cover letter that addresses why you are interested in Macalester, a statement of teaching philosophy, CV, sample syllabi, and arrange for three letters of recommendation. Inquiries can be directed to James von Geldern at We will begin reviewing applications on October 1, 2017 and will interview at the ASEEES conference (Chicago, November 9-12, 2017) and via Skype.
