The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.

The Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies seeks to foster a climate where diversity is valued in all its forms. In our hiring, the Department especially welcomes applications from BIPOC, women, veterans, individuals from the LGBTQIA+ community, people with disabilities, and others from historically and currently marginalized backgrounds. We also seek a candidate who shares our department’s commitment to de-imperializing the field (making it fairer and less grounded in Euro-American knowledge systems), and to fostering an academic culture in which everyone feels welcome, valued, and supported.
