Here at the University of Texas at Austin, we have just created a new
South Asia Institute. Attached is the advertisement for the new
Director of the Institute. Please forward this to individuals who may
be interested. Thank you.




The newly-created South Asia Institute at The University of Texas at
Austin is inviting applications for the position of Director. The
creation of the Institute demonstrates the University's commitment to
the continued growth and excellence in South Asian studies. The
Institute draws its members from across the various schools,
colleges, and departments. Faculty with a South Asia concentration
now number over 45. The  Institute houses the Title VI National
Resource Center for South Asia and several endowments. The Director
will be charged with providing leadership in making the University of
Texas South Asia program the strongest in the country. The focus for
new initiatives will be contemporary South Asia. Resources are being
made available to make several new faculty appointments in areas such
as economics, politics, ecology, public health, economics of
international labor trends, globalization, security, international
trade, demography, geography, communication, education, and
information technology.

We are seeking candidates with demonstrable leadership and
administrative skills,  strong research credentials, and commitment
to superior teaching. Candidates need to have a Ph.D. in any field
relating to South Asia, although preference will be given to those
with a research focus on contemporary South Asia. The successful
candidate will have a tenured appointment at Associate or Full
Professor level in a department or school most compatible with
his/her disciplinary focus.
