Bogazici University Humanities Program Job Announcement

Modified: December 8, 2017
Bogazici University, Istanbul, has announced up to four instructorships 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.

Appointments are for one academic year (September 1, 2018 – June 31, 2019), 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 net 7600 TL per month. (Turkish taxes are deducted at the source, and the tax amount varies from month to month. Hence the variation in monthly net pay during the course of the year). State health care is provided.

Instructors can apply to the Dean’s Office for research travel funding (which is a fixed sum) once per academic year.
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 eight classroom hours per week) and for giving lectures periodically throughout the semester.

Applicants submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, writing sample, three recommenders 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 Dr. Leyla Kayhan Elbirlik, Academic Coordinator, leyla.elbirlik@boun.edu.tr.
