We have a faculty opening
in Islamic Studies for which I attach the job description. It is a
shared appointment, 51% Religious Studies, and 49% Anthropology.
We would greatly appreciate your circulating it to any recent PhD
graduates and current PhD Candidates that you have in the
study of Islam, and posting the description to any listserv or
discussion lists that might be useful.
We are keenly interested in having a good pool of candidates. We offer
Arabic language, courses on Islamic civilization in History and Political
Science, an active program in Middle East & Asian Studies, and a
very good, congenial, if small Religious Studies faculty. And Flagstaff
is a beautiful location.
Thank you very much for your help.
