Research areas are open. We especially welcome scholars whose research on contemporary Japan focus on areas such as, for example, science and technology, visual culture, gender and sexuality, media studies, and digital humanities. The successful candidate will demonstrate a promising record of teaching and scholarship and will contribute actively to undergraduate and graduate advising. Ph.D. in hand is expected by the time of the appointment, August 2022.
