Kahn Chair in Humanities

Southern Methodist University

Review of applications will begin December 15, 2023, but the committee will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.

The Department of English at Southern Methodist University invites outstanding applicants for a tenured appointment at the rank of advanced Associate or early Full Professor to the Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Chair in Humanities beginning August 1, 2024. The field is open. We welcome candidates in any and all fields of literary study in English, broadly defined, whose expertise would strengthen the department and its connections to affiliated departments and programs in the humanities and liberal arts, among them History, Philosophy, Art History, Ethnic Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies. The holder of this chair should be committed to an ambitious research agenda and active involvement in a dynamic department and its highly endowed Ph.D. program (in which all graduate students are fully funded and therefore carry little to no debt upon completion of their program).
