Boğaziçi University, Istanbul

Job type: Faculty Non Tenured

Application deadline: January 21, 2019


Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, announces an assistant professor position for the Humanities Program. The courses are taught in English. Native command of English and a Ph.D. in a Humanities-related discipline are required. The Ph.D. degree must completed prior to the application deadline of January 21, 2019.

Appointments are for one academic year (September 1, 2019 – June 31, 2020) and renewable based on good standing up to three years or more. In case of renewal, faculty continue to receive salary during the summer months (July to September) following the end of the first academic year.

The salary for foreign faculty holding assistant professorships is set by the government and is approximately twice the monthly pay of a Turkish assistant professor (Turkish taxes are deducted at the source, and the tax amount varies from month to month. Hence there will be a variation in monthly net pay during the course of the year). State health care is provided.

Please see the course website here.

The course is team-taught in a lecture and discussion section format. Each instructor is responsible for teaching four discussion sections (a total of ten classroom hours per week including lectures) and for giving lectures periodically throughout the semester.

Applicants submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, writing sample, three letters of recommendation and a 1-2 page teaching statement on a specific text of “canonical” status and discuss how they would teach this text.

Applications should be sent to Asst. Prof. Leyla Kayhan Elbirlik, Academic Coordinator, leyla.elbirlik@boun.edu.tr.
