The university 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.
The post will sit within the School of Divinity (a department of Theology and Religious Studies), which is part of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. The post-holder will also be a member of the Edinburgh Buddhist Studies (EBS) steering committee, which draws together staff from five different Schools in the College.
