Harvard Divinity School and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences are both seeking faculty in Islamic Studies.

The Faculty of Divinity is offering a full-time, tenure track appointment in Islamic Studies and is particularly interested in candidates with expertise in Islam in the Americas, Islam in Southeast Asia or Quranic Studies. The successful candidate would work closely with master's degree students in the Divinity School and doctoral students in the Study of Religion and most likely also teach undergraduates and graduate students in other programs.  Application review will begin in September 2019. 

Dean Claudine Gay also recently announced that the Faculty of Arts and Sciences will hire 3-4 cross-divisional faculty in the area of ethnicity, indigeneity and migration in the coming academic year in Asian American, Latinx and Islam in America/Muslim American studies. The search will be led by Dean of Arts and Humanities Robin Kelsey and Dean of Social Sciences Lawrence Bobo who are assembling a search committee co-chaired by Maya Rivera, chair of the Committe on Ethnicity, Migraiton and Rights (EMR), and Mary Waters, Loeb Professor of Sociology.
