preference for Tibetan Buddhism. The position is funded through the
generous support of Khyentse Foundation, and is designed to be situated in
the Department of Comparative Religion, with the possibility of a joint
appointment with the Department of Asian Studies or other relevant
departments, depending on the chosen candidate’s intellectual profile.

later than June 30, 2021.
Responsibilities include the teaching of required and elective courses in
the candidate’s field(s) of specialization (at the B.A. and M.A. degree
levels). Successful candidates are expected to conduct independent and
original research at the highest academic level, demonstrate academic
leadership, compete for Israeli and international research grants, and
should display an ability to work cooperatively with colleagues in the
Faculty of Humanities and the university at large.
The Hebrew University’s primary language of instruction is Hebrew. However,
the possibility of teaching courses in English will be available.
Candidates whose Hebrew proficiency is such that they would not be
comfortable teaching in Hebrew will be encouraged to sufficiently master
the language during the initial years following their appointment.
Qualified candidates will be invited for a campus visit, which will include
a job talk, an interview and meetings with department members. Given the
current situation, campus visits are expected to take place on Zoom.
