Harvard’s Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations is seeking applications for a College Fellow in the study of pre-modern Japanese humanities.  The College Fellows Program at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences identifies exceptional scholars who have recently completed their doctoral work and have demonstrated excellence in teaching.

Scholars in the following fields are encouraged to apply: history before 1600; Edo or pre-Heian literature; or the archaeology of the Kofun through Nara periods; applications from scholars whose research puts Japan into regional perspective are particularly welcome. Teaching duties will include two undergraduate courses and a graduate seminar. Twenty-five percent of the appointment is reserved for the Fellow’s own research.  The Fellow may also advise and evaluate senior theses.  Candidates are required to have a Ph.D. or an equivalent terminal degree by the expected start date.  The appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.  Complete applications, including a current CV, research and teaching statements, teaching materials, syllabus drafts for the above-mentioned courses, plus three letters of reference, must be submitted by April 15, 2015.  Detailed information and a link to the online application are available at

Harvard is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
