The Sociology, Egyptology and Anthropology Department (SEA) at The American University in Cairo is seeking a specialist in Coptic Studies (Coptology). Candidates should be familiar with aspects of Coptic culture (for example, Coptic monasticism, Coptic archaeology, Coptic art and architecture, Late Antique Egypt) and the world in which it flourished. Basic knowledge of the Coptic language is not a requirement, but would be a bonus. The candidate will teach courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
Candidates must have completed the Ph.D. degree at the time of appointment. The successful candidate will have a commitment to teaching and to an active program of research and scholarship.
This is 4-year fixed term position.
