The Faculty of Arts at the University of Helsinki invites applications for the position of Professor/Associate Professor/Assistant Professor in Japanese and Chinese Languages.
The Faculty of Arts explores the Japanese and Chinese languages as well as Japanese and Chinese cultures and societies as part of Asian languages. Asian languages play an important role in the Faculty’s research profile, in which they are connected to research on general linguistics and linguistic typology as well as research on Asian cultures. Applications for the present position are sought from researchers who examine Japanese and Chinese from as wide a range of perspectives as possible and have a proven track record particularly in the fields of language contacts and multilingualism in East Asia and/or language in a changing society. Experience in teaching Japanese and Chinese as a foreign language, interest in training teachers of these languages, and knowledge of Asian literature will be considered an asset. Furthermore, the successful applicant will have research methodological skills that can benefit linguistic education and research more broadly in the degree programmes in languages.
The appointee will work at the Department of Languages, Faculty of Arts, and will teach in the Study Tracks in Japanese and Chinese within the Bachelor’s Programme in Languages, in the Study Track in Asian Languages within the Master’s Programme in Languages, and in the Doctoral Programme in Language Studies. The position is based in Helsinki.
