The Univeristy of Edinburgh is seeking to hire a three-year Lecturer in Buddhist Languages and Cultures responsible for delivering a portfolio of courses in Sanskrit and another classical language, as well as in an area of Buddhist culture such as literature, visual/material culture, history, or anthropology.
This post is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of Buddhist Studies at the University of Edinburgh, through teaching, research and leadership. In particular, the post, which is part-funded by the Khyentse Foundation, is to trial new ways of teaching classical Buddhist languages in a sustainable and inclusive manner. Subject to the successful demonstration of an economically viable and academically appropriate approach to Buddhist languages, there is a possibility that this position could be converted to an open-ended contract at the end of the three years.
